Birthday Parties in Baton Rouge :: A Planning Guide

Where to host a birthday party in Baton Rouge?

Your Guide to Baton Rouge Birthday Parties

As moms, we know that hosting birthday parties can be overwhelming. There are so many decisions to make:: where to host, whom to invite and what sweet treats to include just to name a few. Throw in COVID-19, and the delta variant, and it seems there are even more decisions to be made this year. As such, we’ve put together the third annual Baton Rouge Guide to Birthday Parties.

Our goal in creating this guide was to provide Baton Rouge area moms with lots of the amazing birthday party options and resources. We have listed resources for Baton Rouge birthday parties for all personalities and passions. We have also made sure to include COVID-19 friendly options for those who desire them.

We would like to sincerely thank our sponsors that participated, as without them this guide would not be possible.
