Here’s the Scoop: Best Birthday Party EVER!

I had known for a while exactly where I wanted to have E’s 4th birthday party. One night last fall, we were at the local ice cream place, Bruster’s, and we saw the sign for birthday parties. I didn’t know they did parties! E noticed it as well and asked if he could have his birthday there. Sure, I said, and left it at that. Every so often, he would ask when his ice cream party was. I guess he really wanted it, right?

When the time came to book the party, it was the easiest decision to make. It was relatively inexpensive, the kids could eat all the ice cream they wanted, and bring some home. No party favors! All I had to do was invite the people. Jack. Pot.

  5. That is SO cool! I wonder if the Brusters by my house would do that….I’ll do anything to get out of Chuck E Cheese.

  6. Hi Steph! This is a little delayed from last June, but we just came across your site and saw the great review you did of Ethan’s birthday party! Thank you for sharing it! We do these parties at both our stores (Limerick and Audubon) and love to have kids spend their special day with us!

    Don’t know if you are familiar with our outdoor party area at Limerick, but we have a private party center in the back of the lot. It has sand volleyball, tether ball, horseshoes, and a gas grill for cooking your food! We can set up our large 5-in-1 inflatable (moonbounce with slide and obstacle course) OR you can enjoy our new 25′ Rock Wall and 4-station Bungee Trampoline…Lots of fun for everyone!!
