Oh, well for that age maybe you could do something like I did for my older daughter when she turned 7. The girls got little "shopping" bags with handles when they came in, and they went to a "nail salon" table and got to pick out their own color nail polish (from little sample size bottles) and had their nails "done" (by my mother-in-law). They also went to a "hair salon" table and picked out hair accessories and a comb, and had their hair done (the teenager who helped with that only knew how to French-braid, so they all ended up with the same hairstyle HAHA), and they got to pick out a sample sized bottle of bubble bath (from Avon), and a bracelet. All the goodies were really inexpensive (mostly from Walmart), no more than I would normally have ended up spending on "goody bags" for them to take home at the end of the party anyway. Then I took pictures of the girls all "fixed up" to send to them in the thank-you notes. They had a really good time and it didn't cost much. Have fun!

If the weather is not good for an outdoor park party, some parks have rec buildings you can rent for a reasonable fee (much cheaper than Chuck E Cheese, and much more sane). I did parties last year at our church fellowship hall, I got it for the day for $50, which was great because I did both my girls' parties there the same day (I'm lucky enough to have three of my kids with b-days within 12 days of each other in December!). I think churches will rent their spaces out to non-members but the fee may be higher.
I don't know how old your birthday child is, but for my 3-year-old's party last year, I just took all the tables out of the fellowship hall except what I needed for the food, and I took over all her "ride-on" toys, like bouncy horse, rocking horse, sit'n'spin, wagon, etc. and had a "lets go" party. The kids just played and played and had a great time. Her cake was a merry-go-round one I made from a pound cake with iced animal crackers and a paper "roof" held with straws, so it fit the "theme". Good luck with your party!

Lily's birthday is Sept. 9 so it's still warm out. We had "Lily's Birthday Bash" outside. We grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, steak and had a bunch of side dishes and I made her a 3 tiered birthday cake. It was all done for $75-100.

I would say at home or a park with a restroom and play area of course. my daughter is turning three next month the last two parties we had at chucky cheese was not bad but its better to do a walk in party cause not as expensive you just buy the pizza yourself and drinks and you can take your own cake. this year were doing her party here at home.

I think the park is the best idea as long as the weather permits. You don't have to worry about cleaning before the party and you just need to clean up after yourself! I'm having my daughter's 1st birthday party at one our local parks.
Hope this helps a bit!
