Shirin YadegarMy two oldest girls start planning their birthdays six months before the big day. They have big expectations with large guest lists. Keep in mind they are only 8 and 6.
After plentiful research and numerous birthday parties I have found the best of the best at the most affordable prices for all of their parties.
The list below is made up from my personal experience with these vendors. I have used all of them and have always been more than happy with their interaction with the kids. They are always on time, professional, well priced and make the party a blast!
Make sure to mention LA MOM MAGAZINE when you call them so they give you my rates!

FOOD
Let’s Have a Cart Party
These are the best carts in town. I always get the bbq cart with burgers, hot dogs and corn; the snow cone machine and cotton candy machine. When you get two carts the third one is free!

Cari In Cari Out
Cari’s food is always fresh and tasty. She can cater a party for 20 or 200 and cooks for children and adults. I have had her do a small sit down dinner at my place that was a big hit too.

DJ
DJ Groovy David is amazing. He played all the songs the girls wants and played all the perfect games so it wasn’t “babyish”. David has great eneregy and the girls all loved him!

Entertainment
Magician Simon Coronel will make your event an astonishing experience. He keeps kids glued to their seats and adults asking for more tricks.

Anita Braids is the only entertainment you really need for a small all girls party. She is the best there is. She designs her own hair clips and matches her hair pieces with the theme of the party. There is not a girl in town who doesn’t love Anita’s braids, feathers and tatoos.

Little Saplings
Make a garden and have the children at the party go home with their own plant they can nurture and care for. All of the kids love Ruth and she is so knowledgable about planting and can help you create your own garden at home.
