Throwing an October birthday party at this Chicago-area residential garden space would be perfect for a smaller group of about 25 people. You may also rent the indoor kitchen if you don’t dine at one of many nearby Boystown eateries.

The space comes equipped with tables and chairs, but if you want amenities that the host doesn’t offer, just head to Peerspace’s Concierge service. They’ll connect you with local trusted vendors that will bring catering, a professional photographer, flowers, or whatever else you might need to make your party extra special.

6. Have a castle bash
