rec room creative birthday party packages

we provide fun, open-ended and highly creative experiences for birthday party celebrations, mom's night outs, family socials and more!

party packages - let's celebrate!

(please note that we have signed on to support Ryan’s Ride on June 9th, 2019. should you wish to celebrate that morning, please note the road closures and parking modifications at ryansride.org)

whatever it is you're celebrating -- a little's birthday, a big's birthday :), a baby shower, a mom's night out, friendship, a corporate event, etc -- we're honored and uber excited to be part of the festivities!  our philosophy is that time spent on parties should be fun & memorable, and that you should spend time on party related things that matter and that make you happy...not stress you out. check out our party packages & options below, and also the party partners tab for food, cake and cupcake options to make your celebration suuuper easy and turn-key!!

don't hesitate to contact us at hello@recroomcreative.com with any questions.  or feel free to pop on by for a 10 minute-ish site visit during open play hours =) otherwise, once you book your celebration, next steps will be for us to send you some questions so we can get brainstorming on customizing your party activities, music, decor, favors, etc!

lol party option

if you'd like, your child can choose to be a rec room kid for their party!  what are rec room kids?  rec room kids are birthday children that choose to forego gifts for themselves, and choose instead for gifts to go to charity on their behalf.  this year, toys will be going to the down syndrome connection of the bay area (dscba).  in addition, we will donate 20% from all toy and craft purchases made during the party. (please see our lol page for additional information.)  so to recap, why be a rec room kid?

  • it's easy-peasy and hassle-free for your guests and you -- they show up, purchase a toy or craft for charity onsite, and we take care of the rest!

  • it's great for the community -- in addition to bringing smiles to the toy recipients, you'll be supporting the dscba with 20%

  • it's a great teaching moment -- many of us have a lot, and this is an opportunity for your littles to choose selflessness, kindness and compassion. it's also a heart exercise for us bigs, to give as generously to others as we do to ourselves =)
