DD's 2nd birthday is approaching. And I'm not sure what to do.
Last year we had it at a farm school (which was a complete disaster! The weather was "poor", so they put most the animals away. There was no party host, so I had to show everyone around myself - not so bigger deal with DD & her mates they were only 1 but had lots of older kids too.) anyway.
Trying to think of a theme and or venue. I'd be happy to spend a max of $300. But would prefer to be around $150/$200.
Her birthday is in the beginning of November. & I'm able to bake/cook quite well. So more than happy to bake my own food & cake.
I Can't have a party at home as its not "child friendly" for lots of kids.
Possible venues so far:
Play centre (around me they are like $20 per 2yo + more for older kids)
Another animal farm (different to where I went last time)
Any other suggestions?
Giggle & hoot
Thanks in advance

I did a play school theme for DS 2nd birthday - played all the songs, had some easy craft tables ( mainly drawing)
I had a cool Humpty Dumpty cake made ( gave my cake lady the stuffed humpty play school toy and she copied it!)
i made mini" food ( mini pizzas, mini tacos, mini sausage rolls, mini chicken pies etc) and I just had a jumping castle and played pass the parcel ( at that age that was enough!) and bought play school sticker books as their thank you gifts when they left - we did have it at home as we have a big yard so can't help with venue ideas!

We just had a rainbow themed party for DD's 3rd birthday. It was great! It's a very popular theme so easy to find things and make things for! I think a park would be perfect but you would need a back up just incase! I wanted to do a giggle & hoot theme last year but couldn't find anything but I know now that the ABC shop sell giggle & hoot party packs!

We hired a girl guide hall for dd birthday it was VERY cheap... Maybe look at local churches, scout halls ect. We did rainbow theme and it was so easy!

Our playgroup hires it's hall out for birthday parties on weekends and on afternoons. It is quite cheap and includes use of the outdoor toys, tables and chairs, and kitchen facilities. I went to a party there last weekend and it is outstanding, far cheaper than a play centre yet with enough toys for them to keep themselves occupied. Perhaps give your local playgroups a call? I'm planning on having DD's 5th birthday at ours.

Thanks for the suggestions
I will look into the play group halls etc.
Last year I looked into renting a council hall (some were only like $30 p/h) but required hundreds of dollars bond when booking :/

You can think about themes like hello kitty,sponge bob, fairy, rainbow theme.
If you don't want to do party at home then you have other options like local park, McDonald.
