So, it was the perfect birthday party for my 6 year old daughter. Friends, cake, games, accessory making, dancing.... And best of all-----manicures and pedicures at a nail salon. I'm talking REAL, professional mani-pedis, in a hip international salon that grown-ups go to!
JoliNails (www.joliarts-salon.com) now offers birthday party packages, where girls can indulge in mani-pedis or mini facials. I rented the salon for 2.5 hours.
There is a music and arts classroom JoliArts (www.joliarts.jp) on the first floor, where kids can do art projects (we used paper clips to make bracelets and had an origami making competition) and play games, listen to music, eat cake, etc. There are options to have musicians come and perform too, since the parent company of JoliArts is a talent agency with loads of performers registered, (www.j-cast.biz)
The nailists took reservations in pairs. Two girls and their moms went to the 2nd floor salon JoliNails www.joliarts-salon.com , while the remaining kids played at JoliArts www.joliarts.jp.
I brought a home made candy cake and decorated the room. It was a lot of fun.
How do you like my cake?
Actually, pretty easy to make. Separating the M&Ms was time consuming but it was good mother-daughter bonding.
We had about 20 kids but it was pretty crowded since most of the moms stayed. I think the space is more suitable for 10-15 kids for this kind of party. But, it was so much fun!
