One birthday party venue that won’t make you cry.

water_sand_tableAt, we are all about the easy, the practical, the yes: I baked these myself! (in the trunk of the car). That’s why we had to tell you about Sophie’s birthday party at Art Zone, West Los Angeles. Because, people, this place is genius.

To start off, the kids cannot get bored. There’s no way. We had twelve children and four babies on hand, and they were hopping nonstop.

Art Zone’s amazing staff kept them occupied with creative activities like clay projects, water paint, green goop, squeegee paint, shaving cream, glitter hand-prints, and more. When they weren’t making messes, they ran around the two-story playhouse with a fire pole, play kitchen, jump through windows, reading nook, and dress up supplies.

And guess what! We cleaned nothing. We just packed up our gifts and leftover cupcakes and took off, fifteen minutes after the party ended. Art Zone supplied all the paper products, utensils, candles, and even had a handy cupboard area, where we could set up to feed our birthday horde. (And if you don’t cook, they’ll help you arrange catering!)

Two hours total, from setup to see ya, for an awesome children’s party in an air conditioned venue in West Los Angeles. How’s that?

But the best part of all… Grownup time. That’s right. We found a birthday party venue where parents can sit around and talk. Coherently. And sip cocktails. Alcohol, people. Alcohol and adult conversation at a kid’s birthday party.  You in now?
