Games & More
We have such fun with games and activities like face painting. See below for ideas; Lisa will discuss what will work best for your child's party.
Cake, Food & Gifts
Bring your child's favorite cake or treat. Another idea is to head over to Sebastian Joes for ice cream; make a parade out of it! Consider finger foods (such as having pizza delivered) if your party is after school or at another hungry time of day. Gifts may be opened during the party if you wish; we have a fun, all-inclusive spin on present opening.

"We celebrated my daughter's seventh birthday at Heartfelt. It was the best birthday experience we've had. The kids spent the time together working on a craft project. Afterwards, they had the freedom to play and wander through the creative environment. Not only did the kids have a great time, several of the parents stayed because the store has such a warm, relaxing vibe. Absolutely the easiest, best party we've had in the past seven years!" - Christi
"Thank you so much for having such a lovely, creative and fun party for my son's fourth birthday. We loved the "Magic Wool Workshop" theme and the darling wooly creatures that we made during the party. Our favorites were the butterflies and brown bunnies. My son's favorite will no doubt be the monster that you created especially for him! Thanks again!" - Alison, Dale and Joshua
Is it our imagination or does it seem like children's birthday parties are getting bigger and more elaborate with every passing year? And even with all the bells and whistles, does it somehow feel like something is missing?
Birthday parties are different at Heartfelt, a cozy craft studio/ shop located in Linden Hills. Owner Lisa MacMartin offers crafting parties with an old fashioned flair. Activities like a treasure hunt, puppet show, face painting, games, and crafts using natural materials are all part of making a child's day extra special. Favorite crafts include decorating a miniature fairy cottage, making a wooden rainbow sword using watercolor sticks, creating fairy or mermaid dolls, even planting a miniature garden. And the large tree house inside the Heartfelt shop is a unique gathering place for the birthday child and their friends.
"I adore birthday parties!" says MacMartin. "As a child, my birthdays were quite simple, just cake and presents with my family. When my daughter was little, I took great delight in hosting her birthday at home. We always did a craft, played games, had a puppet show, made goodie bags, and enjoyed homemade cake with a group of her friends. Now that I have my shop, I am thrilled to offer memorable quality parties for children."
Parents and children alike enjoy MacMartin's birthday parties. Over the years, MacMartin has heard responses like: "This is the best birthday party we have ever had!" "I am so relaxed--I keep thinking there is more I should be doing, but you have everything handled." "I want to have my next party at Heartfelt."
MacMartin strives for personal connection through the sharing of creative activities. She runs all the birthday parties at Heartfelt herself, often with a helper. Parents comment on her sense of calm, even at the height of birthday party excitement. MacMartin smiles, "I work with groups of kids every day and we have birthday parties at the shop most weekends. We have a lot of fun--it's especially satisfying to celebrate with birthday children and their friends. I love my work!"
