Choose a project from some of our greatest hits or let us design a project for your child and their interests. Make a wish.

Art + craft activities are individualized for each party (we like to offer options to match your child’s interests). We utilize new materials made of post-consumer recycled content wherever possible, making the celebration as much a gift for the planet as it is for your guests. (Read more about our “fashion” parties here.)

All birthday parties include:

  • our first floor privately-reserved for you
  • a customized PDF invitation (custom-designed for us by Paper Dahlia)
  • a  party hat for the guest-of-honor, handmade by us
  • a guided art, craft or sewing activity and games including all materials
  • plates, cutlery and utensils for food-service
  • plenty of our entertaining workshop team to handle the flow of the event, set-up and clean-up.
