It can be hard coming up with birthday party ideas for your child. The kids want an exciting event with all of their friends — an event that will be unique and leave their social circle talking about it for weeks!
There are a lot of working parts that go into a great kids' birthday party. Parents want their kids to have fun but also have to worry about the challenges of running an event. For example, parents have to set up before guests arrive instead of simply enjoying the day. Once the event is in full swing, parents have to keep the social activities flowing. And after everyone leaves, you are stuck with cleaning.
Hosting a dozen enthusiastic party-goers indoors comes with its own challenges. Will there be enough seating? How much pizza should be ordered (and how do you keep it off the carpet)? What kind of games fit in the living room?
While outdoor birthday parties handle many of these concerns, parents who plan backyard birthday parties are also at the mercy of the weather. A bit of rain, even days before, can leave the party venue muddy, and that mud will find its way in the house every time a child has to go to the bathroom.
Challenges like these are why many parents look for birthday party venues for their child's special day. Hosting a party at a venue often alleviates the need for set up, clean up, and even entertainment!

While we do most of the work to ensure an excellent birthday for your child, putting together a top-notch event requires teamwork. Here is what your part includes:
Guests and Invitation
You are responsible for the guest list and invitations. You know your child's friends and their families better than we do. Once all of the party details are set, remember to send out invitations as early as possible to allow your child's friends to plan ahead.
The Birthday Child
Obviously, we want you to bring the birthday child to the party. But use as important is what you can tell us about them before the event. To help us connect with your child and set up the event in a way that calls to their unique personality, we want to know as much about them as possible.
This includes things like their favorite color, the music they like to listen to, which activities or sports they are into, and which activity they would like for the third segment of the party.
The Birthday Cake
The birthday cake is a central element of the party. Since tastes, ingredient preferences, and decorations are so personal, we leave it up to you to provide the birthday cake your family will most enjoy. Feel free to be creative! Cupcakes or pies are neat alternatives, and we can still cut them with the sword.
Optional Party Favors
If there are party favors, goodie bags, or decorations you'd like to include, just let us know. You can drop them off the day before or bring them with you to the event.
