The weather seems a bit dodgy the past few days, more rain than usual …and it’s June for god’s sake! OK, so I guess we should be used to the British weather, even in the summertime, but somehow, we never do.
Anyway, this seems to confirm to me our decision to make Best Parteez a predominately indoor party company the right one (even in the summer). Yes, we do the odd outdoor bouncy castle but our main packages are designed for inside use only.
How to weigh up which is best? Well there’s pros and cons for both. Lets take a closer look.
Pros for indoor Parties during the summer
1: No weather watching! Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain….My child’s party goes ahead as planned 😊 …..This one trumps everything else for me.
2: Halls are cheap to rent, and are wonderful places for the children to let off steam and enjoy!
3: More products available to hire! Outside bouncy castle can be used inside too! (always check with the venue for sizes, especially the height. And there’s a multitude of other equipment such as soft play
4: Easier to keep an eye on things
Pros for outdoor Parties during the summer
1: It’s nice to be outside on a sunny day!
2: Parties at home do not require hall hire!....so less cost
3: Most party companies hire bouncy castles suitable for outside (including Best Parteez)
4: No travelling for the host!.
I’m sure there’s plenty more for both, but it appears these are the main ones.
My advice after three years in the children’s party business would be to hire a suitable venue close by, choose a package to fit with the age of the children attending, and relax safe in the knowledge your party will go ahead come what may, even if the heavans open.
Having said that, I, along with most of you will be wishing for some proper summer soon!
