Do you want to hold a birthday party outside your home, but all you need is space and not entertainment? A couple of moms have recently asked for recommendations for venues they can rent out, but they want to bring the fun and not have it organized by someone else. The moms on Facebook had some great recommendations. Scroll down for large venue recommendations for Bar Mitzvahs, Quinceañeras and other large celebrations. If you’ve got more please respond with a comment.

B4th

Christ United Methodist Church
3101 Coit Rd, Plano
Christ United at Coit and Parker. I’ve rented there twice for birthdays. Enter on the south side of the buildings and talk to the people at the check in desk or the offices right next to the gym. The prices can’t be beat and as long as no one is using the room you rent and it’s within normal business hours, then you don’t have to pay for your set up and clean up time.

Plano Recreation Centers
The Tom Muehlenbeck Rec Center has great room for rent for a very reasonable amount. You can bring in anything.

YMCA
We’ve had ours at the Richardson Ymca and it was awesome.

Plano Public Library
Rent a program room, kitchen facilities are available, only downside is no candles
