"From my first conversation with Laura, I felt confident and comfortable that I was making the right choice for my son's 1st birthday party! Laura and her beautiful kids lived up to my expectations! They kept the kids engaged and entertained. Several other parents were impressed with her services and requested her contact information. I cannot thank Party Pals enough for making this milestone a memorable one!" - Sherry

"For my daughter's seventh birthday, we invited seven of my daughter's girl friends and ideally, I wanted to hire a party planner to engage the guests in games and activities. I read a small ad in a Washington Parent magazine for Party Pals, a family business. When I spoke with Laura, the owner, I liked her immediately. She was professional, engaging, enthusiastic, and by the end of our phone call, I was very excited about my daughter's party.
My only concern was that I needed to have the party indoors--an average size townhouse--as we live near the woods and constantly have deer in our small backyard. Laura reassured me that my space would not be a problem--and she was absolutely correct.
Laura stayed in touch via email, called me the night before the party for any last-minute requests and she also called me the day of the party to inform me that she and her staff were en route.
On the day of the party, Laura and her team -- two of her teenage daughters -- arrived on time and immediately set up for the party.  They were so pleasant to my entire family and they engaged my shy daughter, which I truly appreciated. When the guests arrived, I simply had to lead the guests to the party room. Laura and her team warmly greeted each guest. In fact, their level of enthusiasm and warmth was maintained throughout the party. I was so impressed with the age-appropriate activities and every guest was smiling and participating--even the shy friends. I enjoyed watching the party so much, I almost forgot to serve my daughter's birthday cake!

I intend to hire Party Pals again next year!" - Kimberly

Rock on!
"Party Pals is the best money I have ever spent in a birthday party. From my first contact with Laura, a former teacher, I knew we were in good hands. We talked on the phone and she described in detail the entertainment that would be provided for my 3 year old daughter's party. And the party went exactly as she described! Laura and her team arrived and set up the party within just 20 minutes, with my daughter looking excitedly on. They came dressed professionally, fun colors and looked great. They team is so well equipped and required not a single thing from me. We had the choice if doing the party either indoors or outdoors, they are so flexible and it would have been great either way. Laura and her team keep the kids so engaged and under control the entire time, the kids don't want to miss a single minute!! The pace of the party was tailored to the kids' attention span, so that when one activity was ending, the next was already set up and ready to go. The best part was that I could just look on and enjoy seeing the kids play and have so much fun, while seeing to the parents, preparing the food and cake, taking pictures.
I have to say this was the perfect party, just pure fun for the kids, very entertaining while not too over the top. My other option was to get a moonbounce. I am so glad I did this instead! The kids would have jumped for awhile, then would have been bored. Almost every parent asked me how I had found Party Pals and asked for the contact information, which is the ultimate compliment!
No matter what your child age, the party will be tailored for that group, as it was for my daughter. Her party could not have turned out any more perfect, I'm so thankful to Laura and Party Pals for making it a day we will always remember!!" -
Mercedes

"Laura and her team were fabulous! From the moment I spoke to Laura on the phone I could tell she was very warm and passionate about what she does, which instantly made me want to book her and her team for my daughter 1st bday. The kids had a blast with the activities Laura and her team planned. Laura and her team were energetic and enthusiastic and made the whole experience fun for the kids. I would highly recommend Party pals, they are awesome... Thank you for making my daughters 1st birthday a great experience and memory for her!!" - Farhana

"We had a Blue and Gold event in March. Laura and her team came and played all kinds of games with the boys and their siblings. I think the favorite was with the parachute! Laura was wonderful with the kids, and made the whole process easy and very fun. Thanks Laura!" - Ken and Alison

"We had Laura and the rest of the Party Pals help us celebrate Tommy's 6th birthday in May.  They were absolutely wonderful!  The weather didn't cooperate and rain started falling down an hour before the party started - so in no time, Laura and the kids changed gears, moved all furniture in the basement and set up a great play area for the little kids.  They kept 15-20 kids entertained indoors for an hour and a half, even giving them face paintings to take home to their parents.  And while I was chatting with the parents and feeding the kids cake, Party Pals put everything back together and the basement looked like there never was a party with dozens of kids.  The furniture was back together, everyone was super happy!  Thank you Party Pals for one of the best parties ever!" - Asya
