cute places to host kids birthday parties in la

arlo has finally gotten to the age where i just don’t think i can handle hosting his birthday parties at home! i think most people start going out much sooner than us, but i’ve loved having home parties so i can go all out on the themes, i just can’t do it anymore if we’re going to have to invite school friends and such! luckily izzy is still a baby so there will be plenty of home parties still lolllll …

anyway along with my intense researching, i also asked instagram for some suggestions of places to host parties and was kindly offered many, so i thought i should share them all with you in case you’re looking too!
