Maybe a park or somewhere outside?  Since you live in the South, it shouldn’t be too cold even in December.

@MaybeOneDay: Chuckie Cheese is evil :p 

How about a private space in a restaurant? You could even see if there is a bakery in your area that will let you do it and set up cupcake decorating for your guests. Kids and adults love this and usually you just have to pay for the cupcakes. Good luck!

A new trend in my area is indoor bounce house places. I know a two year old that just had a party at a place like this and there were several one year olds there that loved it too…

Why is your house out? To me it seems a bit silly to have it at a place like a bounce house or chuckie cheese or something when the child being celebrated isn’t even old enough for that stuff. Maybe just have something at a restaurant? Still kinda pricey though when you could just have people over and get pizza or something.

Does your apt have a club house? I know most of the places I’ve lived, you can rent out their clubhouse. If yours doesn’t, ask around and see if you have friends that live in an apt that has a clubhouse you can use.

@MaybeOneDay: I unfortunatly have no suggestions because I am the least creative person in the world…but just wanted to say:

I HATE CHUCKIE CHEESE!…And at the one closest in location to us (about 12 miles) there have even been shootouts in the parking lot…I mean seriously???

@MaybeOneDay: That makes sense, my family only has like one baby so I guess I just didn’t think of it that way.

do you have a monkey joe’s? so fun, and they have an area for under-2. you could also have older friends and cousins have something non-babyish (you know how older kids are 😉 ) to do, since there are areas for just older kids.
