Birthday parties in Sacramento are always loads of fun thanks to the diverse array of attractions, historical sites and kid-centric shops available in our Capital City. If you’re looking for the perfect venue for your child’s Sacramento birthday party, you’ve definitely hit gold.

Sacramento Birthday Parties for Girls

Girls who love to dress up will fare well with the selection of Sacramento destinations available to them.

For a classically fun birthday, head to A Dash of Panache in Roseville. It truly is the anti-bounce house celebration with a delicate little tea room and plenty of dress up options. Attend this tea party decked out in feather boas, sunglasses and tiaras supplied by the shop – or bring your own duds for a perfectly themed celebration. A Dash of Panache offers a variety of girly themes including:

- Royal Princess Party

- Tea Birthday Party

- Teddy Bear Picnic

- Spa Salon Party

- American Girl Mystery Party

Another adorable option for your Sacramento birthday princess is Enchanted Memories. This party service comes to your house or other selected destination, and entertains your guests with a variety of activities. While they use names like “Blue Princess” and “Pink Princess” to avoid copyright infringement, the princesses that arrive are very obviously Cinderella, Belle, Sleeping Beauty and more.

They even keep a professional pirate on hand for the boys.

Depending upon your budget, an Enchanted Memories party may include:

- Princess themed story time

- Make-up application

- Craft activity

- A “royal coronation” ceremony for the birthday girl

- Bounce house rentals for adventurous princesses

They do not provide food, but this is great for families looking to save money bringing in their own food. An approved caterer list is also available on their website.

Party “add ons” include:

- Disney artist John Denton with glow in the dark face painting

- Golf and Glow package that includes a fedora hat, star ball necklace, flashing bracelet & spike ring and slotted glasses.
