Birthday parties. We love attending them, but I have to admit, in the four years my children have been alive, I’ve been known to keep things simple. The idea of planning and executing a birthday party seems daunting, with so many “moving parts” and with the risk of the whole thing being a flop. For that reason, we’ve chosen to keep parties to a store bought cake and a few balloons – but as my son’s friends are having more and more friend-parties the pressure to have an organized event was mounting.
Enter The Urban Chalkboard. The Urban Chalkboard has been one of our favorite indoor play places since their opening last year, and I was thrilled to hear about their birthday party offerings! We’d explored several other birthday party venues, but #theUC seemed like the best place for us this year.
All of my worries about planning and execution of the party were dispelled as soon as I started talking with Tonya and Jessica, the enthusiastic owners of The Urban Chalkboard. They threw out great ideas about activities, décor, and options for adult add-ons, such as a coffee bar and snacks. I felt good knowing that I could have as much or as little control over the event as I wanted, and the party would be in good hands.
I dropped off a few decorations the day of the party, but the majority of the decorating was done by the Urban Chalkboard team – and it looked adorable! The children explored the space, participated in an interactive song and dance, then had pizza and cupcakes (that I chose to provide myself – although, they’ll take care of that, too). We chose to have a private party, meaning we had the entire place to ourselves for 90 minutes! Private parties take place after business hours during the week and on weekends. They have semi-private party options, as well, if you’d like to keep things even more casual, starting at just $50 for 5 children.
The Urban Chalkboard provides a fun environment for children, and a laid back atmosphere for adults which leads to an enjoyable experience for all.
