One of the big decisions to make when planning a kiddie party is the event space. You want the venue to wow your guests but not cut away too much from your budget. Haven't decided yet? Moms from SmartParenting.com.ph's Parent Chat weigh in on party venues in Quezon City and share which ones they've chosen for their little ones.
1. Shakey's Quezon Avenue branch Lot 3, Blk. W-39-E, Quezon Ave. Corner Abad Santos St. Brgy. Sta. Cruz, Heroes Hills 351-0221 shakeyspizza.ph/Bookaparty.html
If you haven't been there yet, the Quezon Avenue branch has a Fun Zone where kids can play arcade games and even win prizes. If you rent the restaurant for a kiddie party, you'll get to use it too! Party package rates start at P12,500 inclusive of food, decorated venue, giveaways, invitations, game prizes and more.
Parent Chatter chevz31 got the venue for her daughter's 1st birthday and had this to say: “Ang ganda ng place, maluwag. Plus, maganda talaga ambiance sa Shakey's. Nagenjoy pa mga kids and adults guests ko kasi may Fun Zone.
“Yung mga staff, accomodating lahat. Sila pa nag-ayos ng mga giveaways namin, and lahat ng mga requests namin nagawa nila lahat! Ang downside lang sa branch na 'to lagi fully booked especially on weekends. So hindi sila pumapayag na magextend ng time if your party date falls on a weekend. But still recommend this branch!”
Parent Chatter kiddiedoc shared that she chose the event space for her baby's 1st birthday, saying the party was a complete success. She rated the venue a 10/10 for its spacious area and accommodating staff. Quezon City Sports Club was also the chosen venue for the 1st birthday party of mom blogger Jackie Go's daughter Gabbie. “We wanted a big venue good enough for 100 people but we really didn’t want to spend 10,000 pesos just to rent,” she wrote on her blog.
For an intimate party, consider getting Quezon City Sports Club's Function Room F, with rates starting at P5,000, for 30 pax inclusive of food and exclusive use of pool. For more party packages, please get in touch with the venue directly.
Though it is a little pricier, the venue is beautiful as it's found on the roofdeck of the Barrington Place building. Located at Congressional Avenue, the venue has two halls which can accommodate both small and large gatherings. You can opt to just rent the venue (starts at P6,500 for 40 pax) but they also offer all-in party packages for kiddie parties.
It seems like a lot of QC moms are loving this café as a children's party venue -- quite a number have suggested it! The interiors of the bakery are pleasing and the location has ample parking. Best part? You get much more than what you pay for. The venue charges food per head (P175 or P220 for a kiddie party) and freebies already include use of the party area which they will decorate for you, a chiffon cake, a sound system setup, and 10% off on add-on stations and bars.
Parent Chatter tilehc had her daughter's 7th birthday party at Wheatberry. “The decor exceeded my expectations and I was surprised it looked that good (free pa yun sa package, major plus!) so I didn't use the extra decors I bought. The sound system was good and came with an efficient sound tech and again this was free (kasama sa package). The waiters and attendant were all courteous, friendly, attentive and quickly responded to requests. So many guests were impressed with Wheatberry and asked me where I had discovered the place,” she wrote.
5. Magnolia Place Clubhouse Tandang Sora Ave, Novaliches 621-2427
If you know anyone living in Magnolia Place in Novaliches, it may be time to ask for a favor. Lots of moms love the place for kids' parties but unfortunately you need to be endorsed by a homeowner to be able to book the venue. Their rates for slots between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. start at just P2,600 for the first three hours.
