Birthday party

Party Details:

Parties are two hours of fun: a customized schedule of stories, games, and crafts. They take place in our basement party room and are run by two Red Balloon Party Hosts.

Parties are geared towards children aged 3 - 8 and can be planned around one of five possible themes (below).

Each party includes:

  • A private storytime and scavenger hunt

  • Games, crafts, and/or activities around the party theme

  • A red balloon and $5.00 gift card party favor for each guest

  • Printed invitations and thank you cards

  • Book and gift registry for the birthday kid

  • Party ware and decorations

We do not supply food or drink. Outside food and drink is welcome.

Pricing and Reservations:

Each planned birthday party costs $225 and can include up to 10 guests (including the birthday kid). Up to five additional children can be included for an added cost of $15 each. The party room does have limited space. Guests’ parents are welcome to stay as space allows; otherwise they may be asked to wait upstairs.

Once we have found a time slot that works for you, a non-refundable deposit of $50 is required to reserve that date. This deposit will be applied toward the cost of your party. 

The final head count is required seventy-two hours before the scheduled time of the party. At this time, you will be charged for the remaining balance. Cancellations will not be refunded.

The party room is peanut and tree-nut free. If you or your guests require accessibility accommodations we will gladly do our best to adapt. Contact us to discuss details.
