traveling farm birthday party little horse on the prairie los angeles

1. Little Horse On the Prairie

This is the most magical and well designed traveling farm experience that I’ve ever seen. They come to your home to set up the dreamiest little pen for you and your guests to enjoy. You can have a visit from Fable the alpaca, Willow the miniature horse, the adorable Miss Jemima Puddle Duck (who will jump in the pool with you if it’s a summer party!), and so many more sweet little creatures. They are all incredibly friendly, gentle, and very engaging for the kiddos and adults.

Follow along on their Instagram!

art bus kids party los angeles

2. Art bus

This is party delivery at it's finest.  A sparkling white bus pulls up to your party and the kids are free to paint all over it!  When do you ever have the chance to paint your heart out on such a giant canvas?  Messiness encouraged (and you don't have to clean it up!).  There are more activities planned for inside the bus as well - making slime / glitter tattoos / rock decorating & more.

Check out the PARTY JUNKIES for more information.

bubblemania kids party los angeles

3. Bubblemania

Everyone likes bubbles.  EVERYONE I tell ya.  I've seen this company at a few backyard birthdays and it really is entertainment for all ages!  Even the adults look mesmerized (yes, me included).  It starts off with a structured bubble show and ends with party guests taking turns to be inside giant life size bubbles!  Also, bubbles make for fantastic pictures, a big plus for this photographer lady.

4. The Beat Buds

Singing, dancing, and drumming…oh my! These guys put on about an hour long show and give the kids lots of different instruments to play with and fun and engaging songs to sing. They even bring out one of those big rainbow parachutes to play with (perfect for pictures too!). Choose these musical fellows if you’re looking for a rockin good time.

5. Mr. Silly & Secret Agent - CelebratioN Entertainment

Mr. Silly REALLY knows how to make kids laugh.  They are completely engaged from start to finish - that is a superpower.  The company Celebration Entertainment has some great entertainers, I've also seen Travis in action as a "Secret Agent" -> He led the kids on a  fun filled scavenger hunt to solve the mystery of the missing goodie bags, I couldn't keep a smile off my face.

Take a look at CELEBRATION ENTERTAINMENT for your next shindig!


And click here are some photos from the "Secret Agent" party with Travis from Celebration Entertainment.
