Anatomy of a Party: Mili Mouse’s 5th Birthday – The Venue

World, I would like to proudly introduce you to my amazingly witty god daughter, Princess Amiliya. She’s a Jackie-of-all-trades, balancing a rigorous educational schedule with the exploration of some of her favorite pastimes, such as singing and dancing.  She keeps the other kids in the neighborhood in line, gives better relationship advice than most adults I know, and her fashion sense is impeccable.  Amiliya is, by all accounts, amazing!  And on September 24th, this little ball of energy will be turning 5.  Yep, you guess it…we’re having a party!!

After much deliberation, we decided that for her 5th birthday, Mili will be trading in her crown and wand for a shiny pink sheriff’s badge and boots as the theme for this party is ‘The Wild, Wild, West’.  Now, I’m not going to unveil all of the party details right now but I did want to give you a sneak peek into the venue.

Linvilla Orchards (Media, PA) quickly emerged as the fan favorite for the party location.   It is a 300-acre farm dedicated to agriculture, entertainment and education. They are open year-round and grow various crops of fresh fruits and vegetables for picking and purchase, including apples, nectarines, apricots,  peaches, pears, plums, grapes, cherries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pumpkins, squash, sweet corn, tomatoes, eggplants, and peppers, straw and Christmas trees.

The farm also features white tailed deer, sheep, goats, emus and rabbits plus a large collection of chickens, geese, pheasants, quail, doves, ducks, peacocks and guineas.

They have several affordable birthday packages but every party is 2.5 hours and starts with a hayride through the fields and orchards.  The following is also included in the standard price of each package:

  • Entrance into Playland
  • Coloring books
  • Corn to feed the animals
  • Tables in the picnic grove and
  • A party balloon
  • A complimentary hayride ticket for a future visit for the birthday child
  • Freshly baked pizza
  • Lemonade or apple cider
  • A specially decorated sheet cake (your choice of vanilla or chocolate) with a farm theme
  • Birthday farm theme paper goods (party hats, cups, plates, forks, napkins, tablecloths and candles)
Stay tuned as I will continue to unveil the details of the most anticipated 1st grade party of the year.  Until then, enjoy browsing our Inspiration Board for Amiliya’s 5th Birthday on pinterest.
