If you want to recommend a spot, just send me a couple sentances on your experience (Jill @ BigKidSmallCity . com)!
From the research I’ve done, there are hundreds of options for birthday party venues in Houston. If you have a place you like, contact them and see what they have available (and then tell BigKidSmallCity about it)!
For help planning a party, check out Crowning Details and see an example of her beautiful (and affordable) party HERE.
BigKidSmallCity is not responsible for bad birthday party experiences. This page is a resource to help Houston parents. Please work directly with the business to coordinate your party and fix issues. Thank you!
Any venue with a “*” was recommended by the business and not by a parent. If you are a Houston parent and want to endorse the “*” venue, tell us!
