BIRTHDAY PARTIES AT ANN PEDEN
We have enjoyed hosting jewelry parties to celebrate children’s birthdays for over 14 years! And now we have added new choices for birthday parties! To book your party, please contact us at the store for available dates (706-769-2656 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org). A deposit of $25 is required to book your party with us.
Our birthday party is perfect for girls age 5-18, but it is also the perfect party for ANY occasion – we have hosted bridesmaid’s, girl’s night out, teachers, sorority alumni get togethers, BFF get togethers, Girl Scouts (inquire about meeting the requirements for jewelry making badges), and have even taken the party to local Assisted Living facilities on several occasions.
We offer three different Party Packages – Jewelry Making, Painting (canvas) and Painting (wooden cut-outs).
Jewelry Making Party, $16/person – includes:
*A hands-on Jewelry presentation, interesting and informative about the history of jewelry, fun facts about gemstones, pearls, etc. We encourage creativity and self expression through the joy of making something unique and special!
*We provide all the instruction and materials to make both a necklace & a bracelet (age appropriate). Every girl chooses a charm for her necklace & alphabet letters for her bracelet. We even have a mini fashion show to highlight the beautiful creations made during the party!
*Then we open gifts, take photographs, and wrap up a wonderful party that will be remembered as a special birthday celebration. Plus the girl’s will all have jewelry to take with them after the party that will be enjoyed and be a special memory of their friend’s birthday.
We request that a parent or adult stay with any child under the age of 6 to assist them with their jewelry making.
*Party package is minimum of 8 guests (including guest of honor) and maximum of 20 guests. We can accommodate more than 20 guests, but we need to know in advance so we can properly plan for a larger group. We ask that you let us know two days before the party what the party RSVP number looks like so we can plan and prepare – we are always prepared for more guests than you anticipate just in case : )
*Parents are welcome to stay for the party and shop our Artist Marketplace!
Party Cost – $16 per guest ($25 deposit required to book the party, subtracted at the end of the party from the total), add an extra $25 to include the cake, drinks, candles, and all the paper goods (our goal is for mom to come and have a good time – everything is taken care of!).
We have several different jewelry projects available to choose from for the party (the basic necklace & bracelet set, making paper beads, bead weaving or a specific kind of necklace, i.e. pearl) – if you would like to meet with Ann to discuss different party projects, just ask and we will be glad to set up a time.
If you would like to give additional favors to the guests, we offer our bottle cap necklace ($1) with an 18 inch chain ($2) for just $2/guest. The girls also enjoy picking out a bottlecap necklace from our very large selection of bottlecaps. If there is another favor that you would like, please let us know as we have access to the over 45 local artists in the store and we can customize a party favor (i.e. we just did small handmade mermaid dolls for each guest to add the extra touch to a Mermaid themed cake and birthday party).
*We provide a selection of 12 different wooden cut outs to choose from (crown, mermaid, football helmet, scalloped sign, superhero shield, snowflake, spider, owl, megaphone, snowglobe or gumball machine, quote bubble and heart of Georgia map) – the birthday girl can either choose one cut out that everyone paints, or everyone can choose their own design.
*Like the jewelry making party, add $25 to include the cake/candles/drinks & papergoods.
We also offer a Painting Party (canvas) – Painting on canvas, $18/child (8 child minimum or $144 minimum). Your child will choose the theme of the canvas & can decide if she wants the canvases predrawn or we draw it together at the party. Taught by Valerie Johnson
We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will celebrate your child’s birthday with us!
Please note that our class schedule is posted on the page “Class Info” and parties can’t be booked during our class sessions.
If you are a girl scout troop, we also can book your jewelry making badge in our classroom – please contact Ann to schedule.
