    The staff was extremely helpful and we had an amazing party for my older daughter. We have been back since and have done hand/foot print plates of my infant for the grandparents.The also offer summer camps, which I will be trying.

    I had a party like this for my older daughter at Paint Some Pottery a few years back so I thought I knew what I was getting into by booking this party. Wrong! I am glad that I had the experience though, as I could make the party move smoothly. There was no help from the staff with this at all. Where to begin? First, they never called to confirm the party. I had to call and ask all the questions and give the answers to questions that had not been asked. No big deal—they are new so I did not think too much of it. We got there and no one introduced themselves to me or my husband. They did have a few pieces of pottery set aside that the children could choose from, but there were not many and they looked like the ones they were trying move out of inventory. I asked if I could bring a few more pieces from the shelves over so there would be more of a selection. I was met with a dirty look and a big sigh. I ignored it and began to move 3 or 4 more pieces within the price range over to the table. I could tell they were not happy, but I wanted the kids to like what they were painting. After the party began, I asked about the party favors I had requested at booking and again was met with another sigh. They were not together and they had to have someone else putting them together while the party was going on. The facilitator was not a kid person, she did not smile or make the kids feel at home. She never introduced herself to the kids either. They were asking me to fill up paint colors, how to do things or where to put equipment. There was no discussion of different techniques to use or if you made a mistake what they should do, etc… Not one child was offered an apron. My husband and I had to ask if they had them and then go get them and ask the children who wanted one. I had to keep my eye on the time to make sure the kids were moving along and we could get to cake. The facilitator sat in the back corner and painted the whole time. At one point, she wanted the kids to line up to sign the birthday plate. She yelled out that they were to line up. Several times she did this and then looked annoyed that none of the kids were moving. I looked at her and said , ” Where? Where exactly do you want them to line up?” Once she was more specific, the kids moved into place and signed the plate. I also started the clean up process. She never moved from her spot in the back. I told the kids where to put their finished pottery, where to wash hands, and where to put their dirty utensils. We did get in the birthday cake and ended up opening presents at home. I have never written a review on here before, but felt that for the price of the party, is was not a very good experience. I had a great experience at Paint Some Pottery so I had a good comparison. If you are a good party facilitator and have to have it here, you might consider this, but if you are looking for someone else to run the show so you can relax, look elsewhere.
