I've been wanting to share with you an AWESOME company in Philly where you can outfit your kid's birthday party with entertainment and fun!
For Boston's 2nd birthday party-I knew I didn't want to have it at a bouncetown or somewhere other than our house.
And although it turned out amazing-I ALMOST won Mother of the Year..(and NOT in a good way.)
I totally dropped the ball on it. Here I was in mid May-knowing his birthday was RIGHT around the corner. And the bad thing about a May 25th birthday-you get into weekends of Memorial Day; T-ball; and tons of other moms on the run activities.
I knew I wanted to either rent an Elmo costume (and have hubby wear it AGAIN hahaha) or I was going to hire someone.
I googled 'elmo birthday parties' or something like that.. all I know for sure is I googled it.
I checked out a few places-and honestly they seemed a bit sketchy.
So I sent an email to BonBon's. I got a fast response back from Bonnie the owner -and within a couple days we were set!
I decided to do his birthday on Tuesday the 25th (his actual birthday) because after polling my neighbors on my block whom were the kids I planned on inviting... I decided since we are ALL out in the cul de sac everyday around 4p till our hubby's get home...it was a perfect day to do it.
BonBon's came-made unbelievable balloon animals for the 1st half hour-then the 2nd half hour Elmo came. He played with a parachute with the kids...sang songs...danced and even sat with each kid for a special picture!
I felt really bad for Elmo at the time cause it was like 100+ degrees that evening! It was soooo hot! (S)he was totally fine with it. Elmo wanted to make sure every kid got their due time with him.
When really, the owner (who just so happened to be the person in the suit) could have said the conditions were too hot for Elmo to stay out any longer!
Above all-Elmo is what made my 2 year old's special day. Really it was!
If you are in the Philly/Delaware/Jersey area and need some kind of entertainment for your kids..from a princess party to the 'Big Red or Blue Monster' you have to give BonBon's a call! ((And if you mention you heard it from me-she takes $10 off!))
I paid a great price for what they did. They arrived early so they jumped in right away and gave me an extra 1/2 hour of balloon animals too! I paid $210 for one hour. It's $150 if you just want Elmo-but I wanted to add on an extra helper since I knew there were going to be a ton of kids here too!
I mean, figuring it costs $300+ to rent a bouncetown it was great!
