Luxury Living: Kiddie Birthday Parties
Remember when you used to anxiously wait for your birthday to roll around each year? OK, so it's been awhile, but you know the feeling of that special day. These days, believe it or not, when it comes to children's birthday parties, Luxury Living is what they're all about.
(WSVN) -- It used to be a cake and a clown in the backyard was good enough for any kid. But nowadays, children's birthday parties aren't kid's play anymore... They take serious planning and can cost you big bucks.
Erica Porter of Myra & Company says, "We're really the place to come for a birthday party because we welcome kids all day every day, whether they're spending 10 dollars or 2,000."
"Are you ready for a birthday party today?"
At Myra & Company in South Miami, little girls, like Jamie, are pampering themselves and their friends with luxury spa birthday parties.
Erica says, "A lot of the girls who have their birthday parties already come here to get their hair done, but they've never had a massage or a facial, so I think just introducing the little ones to the beauty of taking care of yourself."
Mother Maureen Piero says, "Some of the moms are saying I'll bring my daughter, but can I stay too."
Who can blame them?
The party starts with a yoga class, where you can ooom and ohmmm yourself into relaxation.
Then after a good stretch and meditation, head over to the spa.
Here, you change into a robe, and then let the pampering begin.
From a marvelous manicure...
To a refreshing facial...
To a relaxing massage, if you want it, Myra & Company has it.
"Basically, any of our services can be taken from a basic, to a spa, to a luxury, so we're available to anyone at any budget."
The treatments are great and the treats even better.
Enjoy a chocolate smoothie as you sit back and get that perfect pedicure.
Or have your makeup done by a professional...
"Happy birthday to you."
After the pampering, it's time for cake...
And, of course, no party's complete without a goodie bag.
"Thank you for coming to my party," says the birthday girl handing out goodie bags.
A luxury spa birthday -- a special day for everyone.
"We just want the kids to be happy and have a good time," says Maureen. "This is something extra that's a little bit different and a little bit fun."
Birthday Guest Mary Martinez says, "It's fun because I've never been to this kind of birthday party."
Myra & Company plans spa birthday parties for children 7 years and up... Parties can start from as little as 30 dollars to up to 500 dollars a guest... Now that's a party!
