Busy lives and hectic schedules can make it difficult to plan your child's perfect birthday. Fortunately, many celebration venues allow you to plan and set up an entire birthday party online without ever having to visit or call. From decorations to goody bags, birthday venues offer complete birthday party packages. All you have to do is show up with your birthday child on the day of the party, and everything else is taken care of.

Step 1

Choose a local birthday venue, according to the kind of party you want to arrange. Make your selection from kid-friendly locations such as stuffed animal-making workshops, indoor inflatable warehouses, petting zoos, museum sleepovers and movie theaters.

Step 2

Visit the venue's website and review their list of party packages. Find out what options are included at different price levels. Look for specifics such as menu items, decorated birthday cakes, party decorations, balloons and special experiences. Check to see if there are limitations on the number of guests. Choose the package that best fits your budget.

Step 3

Fill out the registration information page to make your party reservation. Submit the date and time that you prefer. Select the party package that you would like and write approximately how many guests will attend. Add any extras to your package on your registration, such as balloons or goody bags with favors. Confirm that you have read and understand the venue's policy on making and cancelling reservations.

Step 4

Fill out all of your personal contact information on the registration, including your name, address, phone number and email address. Pay the deposit or the complete balance with your credit card on the venue's secure website.

Step 5

Print out the online party invitation, along with a map, and mail them to your guests. Supply your guests' names and addresses and have the invitations mailed out on your behalf, if the party venue offers an invitation service.
