My Baby Shower!
Hi Agost1393355,

For specific recommendations you'll need to tell us where you are located.

General recommendations:
  • see if a friend who lives in an apartment or a condominium has a clubhouse they can rent for you.
  • check with religious institutions, schools and other community organizations to see if they have a meeting room you can rent.
  • consider city and state parks with picnic shelters
  • check with hotels which offer free breakfast, but do not have a restaurant to see if they can rent you the breakfast area or a conference room.
  • check with family restaurants to see if they will give you a room free if everyone orders lunch off the regular menu.
Best wishes.

My Baby Shower!
I am planning a Baby Shower Sometime in the summer. I only need a space to hold about 60 people. Tables Chairs and maybe a kitchen. I am on a budget, I have a baby to plan for! Can anyone help on a nice location that is not so pricey?!
The bride and groom must determine the priorities, not the vendors. Every vendor here should be able to make the case for their service or product. However, if you really want a hopping great band, and flowers, photos aren't that important to you, get that band. Limo's can be replaced with Uber. Flowers can be bought at numerous places, and you can certainly find great photographers, bands, makeup, hair folks on Craigslist (and you can be burned there as well. Talk to friends. Ask their opinions. Look at their photos. What they might be so excited about, might give you an upset stomach.

You run your wedding. No vendors. No parents. No siblings. It is your day. Do it your way. And remember, after all is said and done, you will be married. Relax as much as possible. The fewer the details, the fewer things that can go wrong. Focus on your marriage. That is what is truly important.

Bridal shower venue
Looking for a venue that can hold between 250-300 people with outside catering permitted. Please help!
Hi I'm looking for a space to rent for my 38 birthday for guest list around 50 people
We have been asked to photograph corporate Christmas parties and seen gifts given at those parties. Usually in the $25-$200 price range. An occasional big screen TV is given away, or vacation. Depends on if the gifts are randomly drawn, or earned by being the best salesman for the past year, etc.

Just did an event where every other person was given a pound of bacon. Former meat packing company retirees.

Venue for an aftergrad party`
Hello, i am looking for a venue or a lounge to rent out for an aftergrad party. Its going to be a 60 people party on june 14th or 15th. We have a big budget so the money is not a problem. Will review any suggestions.
Hi Tiffani,

I'm not familiar with your area (indeed, i don't even know what state it is in). That being said, here are some general ideas which may be of help:
  • Check with your school: Do they have a room they could loan or rent to you?
  • Check with friends who live in condominiums or apartment complexes: Do their buildings have a common area which they could rent at a low cost for you?
  • Check with your religious organization: Do they have a room they could loan or rent to you inexpensively?
  • Check with hotels which offer a free breakfast, but do not have another restaurant. Do they have a meeting room, or could they rent you the breakfast area?
  • Check with family restaurants in your area: Will they let you use a room or part of the restaurant that is separated from the rest of the restaurant if everyone orders a meal from the menu?
Try to avoid full service hotels and other places which sell beverages. Beverages provide them with a significant revenue stream and they are unlikely to allow outside beverages. Even if the location sounds inexpensive, if they are charging you $3.00 for a bottle of water or a soda the cost will add up very quickly.

Please do let me know if I can be of further support.

Best wishes to everyone.

30th High School Reunion
Looking for a place to hold our 30th high school reunion. Would love a less-traditional and less-formal space, maybe with some cozier places to sit and talk. Bar on site or bar service. Would be great if a hotel were within walking distance for those coming from out-of town. We held our last reunion at a hotel but the bar was not part of the main room and everyone mostly stood around the bar which cut down on mingling etc.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hello,
I am looking for an expensive place to host a co-ed baby shower for my son and daughter in-law. The date is June 20,2015 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm for approximately 30 to 40 people max. I am looking for a place where I can bring my own food and beverages or if it's not too expensive to have the food and beverages included. I am looking to stay within Palm Harbor or bordering Palm Harbor.
Not to give a sob story but I am a single mom and currently not working as I am a full-time nursing student. This is why I am emphasizing a place that is inexpensive!
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

VENUE FOR 'TEA PARTY' BRIDAL SHOWER
The Heathman Hotel, for sure! Their High Tea is the absolute best! I've done a bridal and a baby shower there
I'm producing an interactive media project called "Animate HER", which includes a creative workshop. This workshop will bring together animators, writers and electronic musicians to create a dynamic 6-chapter motion comic series and graphic novel.

We are seeking a stunning Gulf Islands venue for this workshop that will infuse the event with the right energy and tone for our creative process. We'd love to know more about your venue and see whether there may be an opportunity for our workshop to be held there.

Our party will include approximately 25 to 30 people and are open to having tents supplement the housing provided if necessary. We're looking at setting up on Friday June 19th or Saturday the 20th, and wrapping up on Thursday June 25th.

If this might be a possibility I can be reached at erin@content4good.com and can provide further details at that time. Thank you!

Why don't you register on the site, rather than just being a Guest, and then post some real event stories in the appropriate category. I think that your contributions would add to the site, and it is possible that someone might become interested in your business as well.

Hello, I'm looking for a place in charlotte to hold a family reunion dinner for about 70 ppl. Any suggestion or recommendation ?
As we plan for our wedding and inviting our guests, we thought of adding a classy website for peole to visit. We'd like to showcase dates and tims of our wedding, along with ability to add pictures, vid, text and maybe some social networking widgets.. weddingjojo.com seems nice, but found their themes to be limited. Our first choice (at the moment) appears to be rsvpwed.com as it covers most of our criteria. We could also go to the option of hiring a dev coder or maybe using something like wordpress, but we dont know. Any advice would be put to good use.

50th Birthday Party for Mom
Hi everyone!

I am starting to plan a 50th birthday party for my mom for October.

I have never really planned a birthday party to this extent. My mom has really been through a lot and I want to throw her something nice to show her how much she is loved an appreciated.

I need some ideas on venues. The party will have about 50 guests. I am a bit tight as far as the budget goes, my brother will be helping me but we wouldn't want to spend more than $3000 for the whole event, less if possible.

I am looking to have the party in Chicago as most of our family lives in the city, but I would be willing to take suggestions for the suburbs as well since my mom and I live out in Elgin.

Any and all suggestions are welcome. I am new to party planning but I want to make sure it is a night she will always remember!
Is there a venue in Clayton, Creve Coeur, Maryland Heights or any place in
west county that has a full kitchen available to use....to host a Passover
Seder Dinner?

Corporate DJ for Parties
When you are planning to arrange a party for any occasion, whether it is a wedding, a birthday bash, an anniversary or your promotion at work, one thing that is a must to have at your party is the music. When music accompanied by dance, is one of the best ways to fully enjoy ant moment, without any tensions of the outside world. However, it is very important to hire a professional corporate DJ for the party to make the most out of it. The Chicago based DJ’s are the best options for you because they have the best knowledge of the songs to be played according to what occasion it is. Moreover, they also play requests, unless they have been instructed to avoid them.
