Children grow up so quickly and therefore it's important to plan each birthday carefully so that the memories will last a lifetime.
Throughout Melbourne there are lots of great children's party venues. Where have you celebrated your children's birthdays and which do you recommend? Are these places expensive or reasonably affordable? Would you prefer to celebrate your children's birthdays at home, in a local park or at a special venue such as these?
Fairyfields in Fairfield provides some terrific themed party packages for kids such as Harry Potter, fairies (and friends), wiches (and wizards), super heroes, mermaids, star wars as well as custom designed ones. http://www.fairyfields.com.au/
Fairies in my Garden ( http://fairiesinmygarden.com.au/pages/Jumpingcastleparty.php ) also has some great packages.
I agree, Matt, that kids' enjoy being outdoors too. The Royal Botanic Gardens is always a great spot for a birthday party, especially under the big trees on the oak lawn.
