I was thinking about having dd1 4th birthday at a play cafe. Ive been looking at different cafes and their packages they offer.
I am thinking about having her party at a play cafe (hosted) purely to take the pressure off myself, the mess can be kept there and they kids can go crazy on the playground.
Who has had a party at a play cafe? Is it worth it? Who has been to one? What have your experiences been like?

I've been to loads of parties at playcentres. I had my daughter's second birthday at one.
The kids have always had a ball!

We had my son's party at one yesterday. It's worth every cent! I was able to relax and enjoy his birthday and take part in some games with him without worrying about preparing food or serving refreshments. We loved it!

What kind of package did you go for? The most basic or one that includes everything including platters for parents, lolly bags etc.
Also how long before the party did you book the party? Did you go to a few different play cafes before deciding which one you like best? So far Ive just looked at webpages and only concidering the ones that are the cheapest per a child.
