Custom Birthday Party – “Under The Sea”

“We hosted our four year old daughter’s birthday party at this wonderful Long Beach gem. Owner, Natalie Meza, worked diligently with me to carry-out the concept of our mermaid theme. She ordered custom underwater colored paints and materials, devised craft options and consulted me by phone and email whenever I had additional ideas. You will find that Averyboo is a modern, clean and well-lit space that has high-quality materials. Being that Natalie is a mother of a young child herself gives her a deep passion for what she does and with her art background you’ll see how you’re child will have a wonderful artistic experience no matter what studio offering you choose!”

Custom Party – French/Japanese

Hannah was turning 8 & wanted a more “grown-up” party theme. Her mother came to me wondering if I had any suggestions for a French/Japanese art party. Interesting combination = interesting challenge.

After interviewing the daughter a little bit, this is what we came up with and the girls had a blast.

We set up a boutique with grown-up dresses & accessories. The girls put together glamorous outfits and walked down the cat walk for a fashion show (complete w/ Edith Piaf music).

5 Year Old, Secret Agent Party, Part 1

If you do a search online, you can find a lot of ideas for a Secret Agent or Detective themed party… for big kids. I really loved the idea for my son’s 5th Birthday and came up with a unique theme & activities appropriate for 3-5 year olds.

—- edit 09/18/11—-
Warning – it has been over 6 months since my son’s party and he’s STILL playing “secret agent” almost every day…. This party idea may make your child obsessed with spy missions & set the bar very high for your next party! 😀

Part 1 – Invitations

1) To save time & money, I used up a stack of old, blank note cards to make mini file folders.

2) Avery & I had a secret agent photo shoot in the studio parking lot… Our favorite shot was converted to B&W then printed from our home computer.

3) The” Agent Profile” and party info were also created on the computer. I used a type writer font to give the invite an authentic feel.

4) Each recipient also received a small envelope with a tiny message & magnifying glass inside. The message read, “Remember this password to enter the secret agent academy…’Babaloo’ “.
