My little man wanted a pirate themed party this year and we had some fun planning it. Since his birthday is in November it makes planning his party tricky since the weather isn’t nice enough to be outside anymore but there isn’t snow (yet thankfully) so you can’t really have a winter themed party! I started thinking about what would be fun for my little 3 year old and his friends to do. I had heard lots of good things about The Children’s Art Factory but I had never been so I decided to look into it. After doing a little research it sounded like something him and his little friends would enjoy! So we booked the venue and started planning. Once I had his invitations printed I placed them in a bottle with some sand (I ended up using brown sugar), sea shells and wrapped some twine around the cork and added a label with each little pirates name on it and my little man hand delivered them to all his friends. The Children’s Art Factory ended up being the perfect choice the kids all had so much fun and each one got to paint and decorate their own treasure chest and sword. The enjoyed playing with all the amazing things available to them at the Factory. I have to take a minute to talk about his cake! It was amazing and Dana from The Cake Place once again delivered the most delicious and cutest cake ever. Every little detail of the cake was perfect and Cove thought the cake was so “awesome” he wanted to show everyone his birthday cake. Thank you Dana you’re the best and never disappoint!
