Amazing Kid Birthday Parties brings you the best of the best in party planning. Check out our family favorite, tried and true innovative ideas and creative contributions from our readers!


Our family loves to party...birthday parties for kids, that is! With a professional chef, a vice principal, a coach, extreme adventure athlete and two youth ministers in the mix, you can bet we have had some great ones. But don't worry, you don't have to be an expert to throw a party like one!

My name is CJ and I am the writer in the family and also the family party organizer and decorator.

I have two grandsons, ages 2 and 5, so they keep me busy with birthday and holiday parties but just because I'm a Grandma, don't worry about my ideas being old fashioned.

In fact, you may find them a little on the wild side. This Grandma rocks and... not in a rocking chair! I love to add that "wow" factor.

You will usually find me in full attire, dressed as a Ninja Turle, Mario, Minnie Mouse or whatever fun character fits the party theme.


Kim is the mastermind behind this site and the livewire at our family parties
. She has a Masters Degree in Theology (youth ministry), is an avid endurance racer and an extreme adventurist as well. She is a Karate instructor and has coached sports for 20 years. She has a ten year-old son who has had ten of the most awesome birthday parties you can imagine. How's that for a "games background"?

Kim and I started this site years ago so we could share our family's love for parties and some helpful hints along the way. We pull our family resources like my son-in-law's culinary knowledge, my sister's great cake decorating skills, Kim's games background and so on to bring you all you need to throw an amazing kid birthday party! Learn more about us on our Meet the Family page...

We offer lots of time and money saving tips on this site. Let's face it, times are tough and where I live in a rural mountain town in Colorado, not only is money tight but so is shopping. I am an hour and a half away from any kind of shopping!

We show you how to use what you have around the house so you can minimize your shopping expense. And we share all the penny pinching inside information on the best places to shop for the party supplies you do need.

We will get your imagination flowing so you can mix our ideas with your own for a creative custom touch. By the way, we'd love to hear all about your party and to see some photos too.

When you trust your party to us, you can know it's in the best of hands. You can relax, seize the moments and concentrate on the most important thing of all...making memories.

  • What to do for entertainment.
  • What to eat.
  • How to decorate.
