Party Themes

All themes are customizable based upon age, gender, and interest. Our party specialists will work with you directly to plan a party that matches you or your child’s personality.

Urban Garden

Frolic about as we get our hands dirty, ‘green’ up the room, and create the beginnings of an urban garden for each participant to take home. Parties can make their own edible soil cups, biodegradable origami planters, seed bombs, or vermacompost!


Have a fun, all-natural pampering party! Your party guests will mix up luxurious spa treatments from our natural ingredients. Experience self-created face scrubs and masks or make your own, chemical-free beauty products to take home, picking from lip balm, signature scent, or bath salts. Just a warning, peaceful relaxation might not be possible with all the laughter, chit-chat, and style advice, but their bodies will thank them for a chemical-free spa experience!

  (This party can also be tailored to adults!)

Green Building

Our staff will lead party guests through the fun ‘building’ process of taking, fabrics, corks, popsicle sticks, book bindings, egg cartons, films strips, and more, and transforming them into an eco-model house, fort or playground the perfect size for your doll friends!

Eco Craftwork

Recycling has never been this fun, or produced such beautiful results! Our man-made surplus expert will guide party guests on the journey from trash to treasure. You won’t believe what you can make! Choose from items such as cork boards, scratch-art CD’s, hand-made doll pillows, pistachio florets bottle cap art, button jewelry, superhero capes and masks, robot creations, or journals.

Reuse Rhythms

Music matters! Party guests will learn how to use repurposed items to make a variety of musical instruments such as rain-sticks, shakers, pipe flutes, whistles, click clacks, glovaphone, straw horns and then have a performance parade!
