Extravaganza Party Themes

Luau
Feel as if you’ve just stepped into a tropical paradise with this party! The Luau party includes tiki & island decorations and games. Every child attending the party gets to go home with a lei. Children can dress the part of an island hopper by wearing grass skirts. Kids get their picture next to palm tree to take home as a keepsake.

Western 
Howdy partner! The Western birthday party includes Western decorations such as a cactus, wagon wheels & steer heads. Every child who attends the party gets a plastic cowboy hat and sheriff badge. Kids get to sit up on the saddle and have their picture taken and meet one of MCM’s animals.

Pirate 
Ahoy Matey! Be a birthday pirate at the Museum. This party is all about the birthday pirate and his or her mates! From red & black pirate decorations, an Island Hopping game with pirate treasures, bandanas for guests and a pirate hat for the birthday boy or girl, a swashbuckling good time is guaranteed as each child goes home with a special photo.

Purple Princess 
Step into a world of make-believe! Your child will be the ruler of all they see as they sit atop our child-sized throne. The children will act out the role of princess complete with a royal crown, play royal games, and have pictures taken on the throne!
