I mean throwing an Event is my passion, So imagine how it is like if it's related to my own Children!!
To ME..if it wasn't 100% perfect I'd feel such a failure!
Both of my kids are wild spirited kids, they love the outdoors, the chance to run around freely and just to let go! Simply, we needed a NEW place that will cater to their happiness!!
So after some digging around I remembered a very nice place we discovered, explored, and reviewed last summer... Ray's Adventure
Only 10 minutes away from our House, Ray's was a very good choice for our venue selection with a shaded area and different playground options!
As it happened I was already planning and throwing FEM's anniversary I ended up behind on time for their B. DAY!! So ALL my planning was virtual and for the 1st time I decided to let go of my control freak nature and hand the deck for someone else!!!
We booked the entire place, agreed on the package, the theme, and discussed all suitable ideas to make the celebration a great experience!!
Not totally let go!! I did the giveaway gifts & craft idea :)
None of our invitees knew about it or or been to this area before and they were delighted!!! And despite the unbearable heat wave, the place was clean with no insects or bugs around!!
Each child had his pirate bandanna and eye patch on and we enjoyed cool pictures before we kicked off our celebration!
We started with hand / face painting followed by sword shaped balloon time!
On the menu we had Treasure hunt, physical activity games and make your own HOOK Hand craft idea by ME :)
The entertain wasn't experienced enough to constantly keep the kids very interested and my own Hubby had to step in to cool down and entertain all of our little guests!!
There was something FUN for everyone and each child was busy engaged in an interesting activity!!
Marine Mirror - sea shells, star fish, and gold coins in a jar - treasure boxes!!
Very rich buffet with a wide variety to please all our little picky eaters!! Could have been even better experience if they weren't lacking enough staff!!
Sadly neither the CAKE nor the PINATA were delivered as agreed on!!! We were all so taken back by the end results and I was so disappointed!!
Pinata was huge and very attractive from the outside yet so poor on the inside and Cake wasn't as per my selection, missing a note, and Izzy the Pirate female character!
The expression on ALL the children's faces, seeing how HAPPY they were....& How much FUN they were all having was just priceless! In the end, birthday is all about our little ones experience and happiness, and mine had an amazing and memorable experience with all of their dearest family and friends!
Just make sure you well communicate all the details prior to your event...
Bring in your own cake and a pinata (if desired...) and you are bound in for some nice time !!
