    With my first son we lived in a small home for the first two years, the first year we did his party at a local park.  We rented the pavilion, grilled etc.  For his second the weather had already gotten cold so we planned it at a local restaurant where we rented the side room out.  If you have a local church or community center that might be an option as well.

  • Perhaps a local farm that has hay rides and a little cafe? We have one in our area but all is weather depending I guess.

  • My son's first birthday is in October too. I have posted on the Birthday Parties board (I have a post called "First Birthday Questions" and repliers have given a lot of good tips and ideas).

    Also, Pinterest is nice.

    We have big families on both sides that all live close by so we have big birthday parties. Our house is too small to hold everyone so we rent the clubhouse at the golfcourse DH is a memeber of. For DD1 we did the theme winter onederland. Her bday is in December. I did one small snowflake cake for her and then made cupcakes and cookies for the guests. I had two different types of chili and a bar of stuff to put in the chili. 

    DD2 I think we are going to do something along the lines of our little pumpkin. I am going to carve her name into pumpkins and the number one. I plane to get some bails of hey and setup a fun area in our backyard.

    This is what we are doing this year. We've rented the recreational building, so we're covered if it decides to rain. The park has a lake, putt putt, and a playground right beside our building. We are inviting between 60 and 70 people, so we needed lots of room.
