I remember the week leading up to my birthday party in third grade. My second grade teacher’s son had come into cheap jerseys school to visit his mother (he went to a different school) during the last week of the previous school year, and I had a secret crush on him. My mother gave me invitations to hand out to my friends I wanted to invite and I had gotten up the nerve to revisit my second grade teacher and hand her an invitation for her son. He said yes! Leading up to the party I felt butterflies in my stomach. The party itself was amazing he even held my hand during one of the slow songs. Sigh!
As adults we don’t normally throw annual birthday parties for ourselves (though I did just throw my husband a bowling party in true sixth grade style last month), so it’s nice to have birthday parties for children while they are still kids. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun. But just how much money does a typical birthday party cost?
While researching prices of children’s birthday parties I learned a few things. First of all, there are a large number of venues that host birthday http://www.cheapjerseys11.com/ parties. Variety in venue also reflects how varied the pricing is (I surveyed these venues in the Houston region, so this may vary in other areas). In the chart below I’ve given a sampling of the types of parties that are available and the cost for each. I based each price on a party of 10 children (where this did not fit the party model offered I’ve made a note), and choosing the cheapest package in instances where there was a choice.
