Birthday Parties at The Phipps

Birthday Parties at The Phipps

January 1st - December 31st, 2013

Celebrate your child's birthday with a Messes & Masterpieces art component and each child will leave with a project they created and a lasting memory of the fun day.  You bring the party treats and decorations and we provide materials for each child to create a masterpiece.

Pick an art project (we customize the project to suit the children's age):

  • Tea Party (make beautiful centerpieces and placemats)
  • I Spy (make boxes full of mini-treasures to spy)
  • Fairy Houses or Wild Terrariums (use earthy materials to make a great home for a fairy or wild animal)

Party Fee:
$145 for up to 12 children, $5 for each additional child up to 15.  A $50 deposit is due upon scheduling the party, with the balance due the day of the party.  Adult chaperones are needed and will not be charged a fee.

Fee includes:

  • Art materials and clean up
  • One hour of masterpiece-making
  • One hour for snack/present opening and tour of your choice (behind-the-scenes theater tour or gallery visit).

To schedule a team-building class or birthday party, contact Christine Melby of Messes & Masterpieces, 651-308-2938 or christine@messesandmasterpieces.com
