Having a summer birthday has the advantage of being able to celebrate at one of the many outdoor party sites that are located within Hartford County. With the beautiful weather why not take full advantage and plan a party outdoors? One big perk? By commemorating your summer baby’s birthday outside at one of these al fresco locations you will eliminate the hassle of having to clean up your own home! Go the extra step and keep your party as environmentally friendly as possible. Using recycled paper goods and plastics, fresh and local food and larger food containers all helps.
