Parents often face the challenge of coming up with new and creative birthday party themes for their kids. How do you out-do last year’s bash? Or what about the awesome tenth birthday party their best friend just hosted? We provide ideas to make your child’s next party something they will always remember.
In our planner we include everything you could need—entertainers, mobile party services, party places, supplies, rentals and more! We also provide ideas for kids birthday party themes, buzz-worthy cake designs from expert Atlanta bakers, suggestions for party favors, invitations and even party games.
Successful kids birthday parties don’t require flawless execution – often they’re just a mix of fun ideas. Sometimes kids want to party in their back yard with a jump castle and a clown making balloons or want a culinary, camping, or sport-themed party at home.
If your child wants to venture to their favorite Atlanta attraction, most places offer reasonably-priced party packages that include time in the venue, a decorated party room, a cake and more. Take the kids bowling, skating, playing laser tag, jumping on a trampoline, to a nature center, the zoo, the aquarium, a water park or pool, a puppet show, a museum – the list is endless.
What about your tween who would rather not have her mom involved? We have ideas to get her friends moving, laughing and making memories. Turn your basement into a dance party, have the party guests dress in 80s outfits or plan a murder mystery night.
We have a full list of kids birthday party places, entertainers, and rentals from around metro Atlanta right here. There are so many great businesses to choose all organized by category.
