Oct 31, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

So your child’s birthday is less than a month away. The pressure’s on to make his or her special day both unique and memorable, but you’re fresh out of ideas… and time.

To help get the creative juices flowing, we asked one of the area’s best resources, the El Dorado Mother of Multiples (EDMoMs) club, for input on the latest party trends and locations. Boasting members from Rocklin to Placerville with a total of more than 450 kids, this group knows birthdays.

GRADE SCHOOL (ages 5-9)
At this age, boys and girls typically like different things and prefer separate parties. Case in point, boys in second grade tend to be deathly afraid of the color pink and anything having to do with ‘High School Musical.’

For many parents, helping their child plan an at-home, themed birthday party is a cherished honor that stretches their creativity without stretching their wallets. Popular themes include: Camp Out/Western; Pajama Parties; ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s Dances; High School Musical; Beach/Luau; Princess/Pirate; and Sports Night.

Off-Site Attractions
STAR ECO Station – at this Rocklin wildlife rescue center, partygoers can learn about ecology and environmentalism while surrounded by endangered reptiles and exotic birds.’s Incredible Pizza – Roseville’s ultra-cool party place offers a full birthday experience of glow golf, bumper cars, mini roller coasters, games and, of course, pizza. Penryn Oaks Stables ( or The Grace Foundation in El Dorado Hills ( both offer unique horse-themed party packages.
