For Kennedy’s birthday party this year, I decided it was time to have it outside of the house. No more crafty “Pinterest” kid birthday parties. (I’ve done my fair share.) No more cleaning my house before and after the party. No more stressing about food, decorations, and entertainment for the guests.
Not to mention, her birthday is the week before Christmas. Planning and executing a birthday party has become tiresome over the years during the holiday season. However, I wanted her to feel special and have an amazing time with her friends and family.
Enter Chuck E. Cheese.
I’m sure you’ve probably been to a Chuck E. Cheese before. You may have a certain opinion about it, but let me tell you something. It is the best thing we ever did for Kennedy’s 6th birthday party. Let me tell you why!
You show up ten minutes before, and the party is over in two hours!
No need to spend hours prepping cooking, cleaning, and decorating. You show up, your table is already decorated with the theme you chose, and the party begins! Two hours sounds like a short time, but it’s really the perfect party duration. Everything is seamless
You get your own host for the duration of the party.
It’s like having an event coordinator for a super fancy event. Our hostess was absolutely amazing and took care of everything we needed. I didn’t have to worry about sticking to a timeline – she took care of all of that. She served all of the food and drinks and was so attentive to every guest. She was also amazing with the kids and made Kennedy feel very special.
The kids are never bored.
With each party package, each child guest gets a play pass to play games and earn tickets (there are awesome options to choose from that best fit your budget and needs). The birthday kid gets to go in the famous ticket blaster and can win the “magic ticket”. Table time is even fun with singing songs and meeting Chuck E. Cheese himself.
No cleaning up after anyone or anything.
That’s right. You don’t have to lift a finger. Our amazing hostess wouldn’t even let me clean up the plates and cups after the party was over. That alone right there makes the party worth it!
Mamas, don’t sleep on a Chuck E. Cheese. It truly is a one-stop shop for kids birthday parties. You’ll be surprised how stress-free and enjoyable you’ll feel, and the kids will have a blast. Best decision we made for Kennedy’s party!
