Meet Owner, Laurie Cohen

Owner, Laurie Cohen Thank you for taking a quick break from your overwhelming day to take a look at Birthdaypartykids. I hope that our site makes your role as a Super Mom, a little easier. In 2007, taking the cue from some of my friends and reaching back to find something I knew and could share, I developed my first website, Within the pages of the site you will find some of the most unusual ideas for Weddings and Babies that the web has to offer. With the success of ForBrideandBaby, I felt the desire to expand my business to include a website where people like you can find all the information necessary to throw fabulous children’s birthday parties. In 2010,I added Halloween and dress-ups to the site,  featuring costumes for Halloween and Dress up.

I have been an entrepreneur for over 30 years. Twenty years ago, I was the owner of Northbrook, Illinois based Kreative Kids and Parties, Inc. where I taught music and imagination classes to local children ages two through five. I also created a music and imagination class that I performed at children’s birthday parties. Kids and their mom’s still run up to me on the street and tell me I sang at their parties or at their children’s parties! From those parties came a personalized entertainment service selecting and contracting over fifty entertainers for parties. Several years later, I opened a complete party goods store providing the party goods and goody bags for children’s parties and favors and centerpieces for weddings, bar mitzvahs and other parties. Though on its third owner, Kreative Parties is still a prominent business in the Northern Chicago suburbs. I want to share all that I learned about throwing a great kid’s party with all of my new Internet customers.

My goal is to make throwing a great party as easy and stress-free as possible.  Just choose a desired theme and I’ll do the rest.  Let me be your personal shopper and I’ll search the web for the best and most interesting products available and share my finds with you by theme.   You just need to select the items that you want.  It’s that easy! Make sure to check  all interesting articles, craft and activity ideas, and tips and tricks to transform a good party into a fantastic one. On this website, I have added some comments to personalize your experience and lots of information to make your experience a great one. There are many “Checklists” to keep you on target and links to articles and tools to help even the most organized party hostess.  I hope you use this site as a tool to create unforgettable birthday parties for your adorable children – ones that are I am sure you’ll remember!  Bookmark it and come back often, that’s why I developed it!

about BirthdayParty Kids

When I am not at my computer, you’ll find me with my husband of forty-five years, one of my three daughters or three sons-in-law or doing my most beloved job…being with one of my seven grandchildren! I’ve planned many luncheons , showers, birthday parties and given three weddings, so it’s no wonder I know how to cater to the needs of busy women and moms. Drop me a note and tell me what you think of the site. I welcome your comments, good and bad. So please, contact me.
