Hi,
It's my DDs 1st birthday party and we are throwing a party at home for family/close friends but our house needs some extra space for all the people.
Im thinking of hire a marquee to be attached at the back of the house onto the patio. I was told a blow heater will be suitable to warm up the space and I will also hire carpet to be put down.
Has anyone had experience of hiring a marquee in winter?
Will this be ok for children as well as adults to use?
How can I make it child friendly and a space they will want to use instead of running upstairs into the bedrooms? smile

To me this seems a bit OTT for a first birthday. Does it have to be on such a large scale? Your baby won't be aware of what is going on.

We just had MIL, SIL, BIL and godparents for tea for DD's first birthday.

Our family is quite big and i'm worried that it will be tight.
i'm not planning a large marquee.

Seems ok but could you hire the local community/church hall instead? The hall I hired cost £50 so significantly cheaper than hiring a marquee I would think.
