And if you want to try to keep your kid away from eating glue sticks (see Art above), maybe cupcakes would be more your preference. And let’s face it, what mother wouldn’t be all about a chocolate factory or a cupcake house for their kid’s next birthday. Sign me up!

Rita’s Italian Ice

Schakolad Chocolate Factory

Sweet Frog

The Cutting Edge

The Remedy Coffee Treehouse


Some kids just aren’t into all the action and adventure and prefer to have their nose in a book (can I get some pointers?). Maybe you should consider having their next birthday at one of Knoxville’s great museums.

American Museum of Science & Energy

Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge

The Muse


Fountain City Station


If you have a child that’s about to turn one or two, sometimes a park is just the most practical option. After all, they aren’t likely to remember ponies or skee-ball, but you will remember picking the perfect theme and your blank pavilion canvas to decorate as you see fit!  (Ahem, you’re welcome!)

Knoxville Parks and Recreation

Town of Farragut Pavilion Rentals

World’s Fair Park


Is there anything better than a pool party? (Maybe if said pool was filled with ice cream and chocolate syrup, but I digress.) If you are trying to decide where to have a birthday party, pools are always a safe bet for hours of fun, and you will thank yourself later when they crash and burn for bedtime.
