We had Johnny's 80th party here and it was PERFECT! The space was amazing for the party. We set up the dinner tables on the beautiful covered patio but the inside was also wonderful for gathering all together. Really is a very nice venue for parties of 40-100 people. We had 40. Best of all the host James was an absolute gem! He always communicated with us on all questions and the day of the event, he was right there lending a hand to whatever we needed. Superb and worth it all the way around! Thanks James! (written by Lynn & Elaine)

Beautiful home great location easy to find. the owner was home the entire time for our party and didn't bother to shut off the sprinklers while kids played outside. only allowed 30 minutes for set up and clean up was included in our time this was fine but should have been advised before. but none the less this place was perfect for a graduation.

Tips on How to Organize Outdoor Events in Albuquerque

Hosting an event outdoors can be a great way to take advantage of the beautiful weather. The climate and its diverse outdoor venues provide endless possibilities for creating unique events. These tips can help you make your outdoor event the best.

  • Choose the right location: Select a venue that provides enough space for your guests and activities, with easy access to restrooms, parking, and other necessary amenities. Check local regulations or rules affecting your activities or setup, and consider any environmental factors.

  • Provide ample shade, seating, and lighting: Providing shade and comfortable seating will ensure guests enjoy their time outdoors without getting too hot or uncomfortable. If you plan an evening event, ensure the location has adequate lighting.

  • Provide ample water stations: Keeping hydrated is especially important when spending an extended period outdoors in the heat. Investing in cold drink stands or several public water fountains throughout your venue will help keep everyone refreshed.

  • Get creative with decorations: Enhance the guest experience by decorating according to the theme of your party. Get creative using string lights around trees, hanging colorful fabric banners on fences, adding carpets or mats on grassy areas, creating low seating spaces around them with cushions and bean bags, and filling up empty spaces between entryways with flowers, balloons, and flags.

  • Promote green initiatives: Encourage green initiatives such as recycling bins at the venue, promoting public transportation options to attendees, and using biodegradable materials whenever possible. It will help reduce your carbon footprint while ensuring your outdoor event is enjoyable.
