I need suggestions please.
We would be having alot of adults and kids of various ages. I would really like to keep it out of home and out of a play centre.
I'm just at a loss for ideas. And If ds isn't walking that's going to be another thing as well.
Any suggestions would be awesome !

We looked at a number of kid friendly cafe's and found one that had a separate room that we could exclusively use. They let us bring in some toys and clear an area for the less mobile munchkins to play around in.
From memory we did a mid-arvo time slot to fit in around naps and because of that catered a bit less than a full lunch or dinner. I think we paid for some bottles of softdrink and people could buy other bevvies from them directly.
It worked out really well and was obviously great to leave most of the mess behind

Community centers/ neighbourhood houses will often have rooms you can hire. We used one that had a kitchen area to heat up food, playmats and kids toys for the littlies ( was used for playgroups too) and some playground type equipment outside for older kids. We did have to clean up though.

I'm currently planning DD's 1st birthday for the start of winter. We're tossing up between the playroom at a local church where we do playgroup, so there will be plenty of toys, and some cricket club rooms. For that we would hire some party packs from the toy library. Either way I will order some platters and make the rest of the food/ask family to bring some. It will be over lunchtime to fit in with DD's sleeps.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce. Together, we walked into the kitchen and hovered over the skillet like we were peering into a crystal ball. Looking into my future, I saw me eating a lot of take away.
