Meet Gabby from Gabby’s Dollhouse!

MomsLA was invited to experience the launch of Michaels Birthday Parties here in Los Angeles and we got to meet Gabby! The crafty party atmosphere was super fun for the kids and parents, too.

The party room is decorated for fun, and the tables are filled with craft supplies. Each kid in attendance gets all the makings for a fun craft, and you have the option to get them a goodie bag, too.

The party captains from Michaels are there to help make sure each kid has everything they need to make a fun craft, as well as all the clean-up and design ideas.

3 Top Tips from Michaels for the Best Kids Birthday Parties

Choose a theme your kid will love: 

A party theme will help your vision take shape and give you a direction for choosing things like decorations, activities, and goodie bags. Themes don’t have to be elaborate and can be built around what your kid is into at that moment, like specific colors, animals, or hobbies.

DIY to customize: 

If you have time, DIY’ing things like decorations, goodie bags, treats using pre-made mixes, and games or activities can save you money and make your party truly unique and memorable. For homemade treats, consider leaving them un-finished and letting the kids decorate their own cookies or cupcakes to get more bang for your buck. DIY’ing also enables you to customize elements to your theme and guests!

Make it about more than cake and presents: 

Plan a few guided activities to help give structure to your party and keep guests engaged. Spending time doing group activities like crafts and games that ignite imagination and creativity can strengthen friendships and build memories.
