Sue Pierce, president and founder of Posh Party Box offers some great advice for planning a kids theme birthday party.
Sue was also kind enough to judge my August 2010 Kids Birthday Party Themes Competition.
I am the President and founder of Posh Party Box. Four years ago I was ready to retire, but wasn’t ready to stop working. So, I decided that it was the perfect time to give my dream a shot. After 25 years in the corporate world, being a grandmother of 10, I decided to create my dream, Posh Party Box.
My goal was to create a one-stop shopping experience for busy people who want to host a special party, but have no time to shop! Posh Party Box was launched in 2007 and provides themed parties in a box for all occasions and ages.
Since the kids theme birthday party company was launched we have received six prestige awards; two from iParenting (a Disney interactive Media Group), four from Creative Child Magazine for product excellence and Product of the year in 2009 and 2010. In addition, Posh Party Box has been featured in several magazines and television shows.
There are two actually, Butterfly Princess Party and Dinosaur Dig party.
Again, I have two kids theme birthday party favorites. I love the Dinosaur Dig party where each child is transformed into a Jr. Paleontologist. The kids learn about dinosaurs and then excavate dinosaur bones from a clay rock for assembly of the skeleton for display.
Le Petite Chef where the children have a hands-on experience with food and learn about measurements, nutrition, and how to combine ingredients to make something fun and great-tasting!
I personally take a lot of time when selecting a gift for someone. I really try to think of something I know about them and what really interests them. It is important to select a gift that the recipient will be happy to receive, not what you like!
Be creative select something unique. An example is my very best friend loves to cook and garden. I found a free standing garden “box” and had it delivered to her home filled with tomato plants. What's nice is she can use the box for other herbs and plants as the seasons change.
