craft parties with various themes in a private room

Build-A-Bear is fun too, but my opinion is it’s more enjoyable with a smaller group – plus the cost grows with the number of guests.

SEGA Gymnastics

  • We have had several fun bd parties there!
  • So much less expensive than little gym and much bigger. Just as clean too.

Memphis Botanic Gardens
Our best birthday parties have been outside where the kids can actually play with each other instead of be entertained. The Memphis Botanic Gardens is great, and if you don’t want to go for the expensive package, you can just rent a canopy and let the kids play in the children’s area. So much fun.

We’ve had fabulous parties at Lichterman Nature Center and Maple Grove Farm

Maple Grove Farm
My daughter had her 2nd party there and after looking at her pictures from the party and reminiscing wanted her 4th bday party there which we did and it was just as great! Never a disappointment!

Menagerie Farms

Have a horseback riding party

Bowling & Arcades

Golf and Games on Summer or Andy B’s (Bartlett Lanes). The price is right for both (about 180 for 12-15 kids). Putt Putt was the better though because it included everything except the cake (goodis bags, pizza, soda, acade time, and special stuff for b-day kid).

Incredible Pizza

Other Ideas

Hire a downtown horse carriage to give rides in your neighborhood

Donut Hutt
We love the party we had at Donut Hutt in Collierville. The new owners do a great job of entertaining the kids and adults while making donuts in the actual kitchen. Everything is included; donuts, pizza, drinks, donut cake, and decorations! We didn’t even have to clean up. This was also one of the best deals for nearly 20 guests that we found. The staff was excellent and the host was sooo good with the kids.
