Creative Art Birthday Parties!
At McHarper Manor, we LOVE celebrating! Our beautiful and bright studio space is the perfect location to host a private party, get your creative juices flowing and celebrate the special events in your life. We'll do the hard work of entertaining your guests so that you can enjoy your special day!
How Our Birthday Parties Work
Are you looking for an art or craft kids birthday party? We do it all! Our party packages include private use of the studio for up to two hours. Our base price includes an activity of your choice for 10 participants (including the birthday child). Extra participants are just $25 each (with a suggested maximum participant total of 16 guests to ensure excellent instructional time. Please speak with us if you'd like to discuss a higher guest count. We're happy to look at how to modify things to allow it!)
Our Creative Craft Party Packages start at $299.
$100 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your date and the final balance is due on the date of the party.
With so many options for creativity, you have the ability to tailor your event to your specific child and their favorite themes. Don't worry - if you find this list overwhelming, we are happy to chat and decide together what the perfect project is for your age group and your child's interests!

When should I book my party?
As soon as you have a date in mind! Our schedule fills quickly; to have your pick of dates, we suggest booking sooner than later, preferably 4 weeks in advance. We DO have last minute openings from time to time, so always feel free to call or email to check to see if your ideal date is open. If not - we can always give you options!
What times of the day / week do you offer parties?
Parties can be booked any time we don't have a class scheduled in the studio, Tuesday through Saturday, 10am-8pm.
Can parents/ adults attend?
Yes, all are welcome to attend! We ask that party guests (including adults) not exceed 20 - 24 total so that we keep the volume manageable inside our cozy studio. This way, all children can hear instructions and ask questions of the instructors.
Can we bring our own food and drink?
Yes! We don’t provide any catering service, but you are welcome to bring your own food, drinks and treats. We do ask that you provide your own paper service for food and drinks (plates, napkins, cups, utensils) for anything you plan to serve.
We do not cover the studio, food, or gift tables with fancy cloths prior to the party, but you are welcome to bring any tablecloths or decor that you'd like! Weather permitting, we will have a large (car dealership style) balloon bouquet out in the front of the building to assist your guests in finding our space!
When are final counts due?
Please confirm the number of participants 3 days in advance of your event to ensure we have the proper number of supplies needed for your chosen activity.
When can we set up?
You're welcome to come to the studio up to 30 minutes early to begin setting up for the party. We typically have multiple parties running back to back on the same day, so we ask that you keep to your scheduled timeline both in terms of set up and ending time. We appreciate your help!
Will the art lesson take the entire 2 hours?
Projects are created to take 1 hour of your 2 hour party time. Sometimes, depending on the children present, they don't always take the full hour that we allocate. You are welcome to bring any other party games you might like to play. We have coloring sheets, legos, and playdoh here to play with if they run through the project very quickly!
