Kid's Bdy Party on Long Island
Does anyone know of a really different or a great place to have a childrens party (age 4) on Long Island (Nassau County or borderline Suffolk)? We did White Post Farms 1 yr & we've been spoiled b/c the caliber of the party was spectacular - beautiful room, beautiful papergoods & cake, friendly hosteses, gourmet food....
I'd really love the girlie tea, spa or beauty parties but we have several boys that will be attending so that's out. She's beyond & not interested in the tumbling & climbing type of parties. Build a Bear is cute if only they had a party room - hate having a party in the middle of the store.
I want a place that has everything including a private party room so I don't need to schlep food or cake & don't want to share the facilitiy with the public. Also many of these places have 16 yr old kids doing that party that are oblivious & would clearly rather be elsewhere.
I also looked into horseback riding parties but they either don't do them for kids this young or you have to bring everything with you. I don't think the puppet or storytime or theater parties are the excitment the kids look for, een though I think it's cute - it's more like a playdate get together than a party.
Last yr we alo did a cookie baking party so any cooking parties are out & we've been to many plaster parties so that's been played out too.
In my head I have this image of a carnival party with arcade games, cotton candy machines, face painters, hot dog machine, etc. Sure you can rent all those things independently & have it at your place but I'd love a place that would do all that in a classy way at THEIR place. I'm going to called Adventreland tomorrow but I doubt they have a private party without the public & then of ourse there is the weather consideration if held outdoors & it rains. Forgot to mention it's a Summer bdy (late June).
Is there anyone who can think of a place that offers what I am looking for or a party palce they've been to that's a little more top notch?
