about Lion House:
A pioneer birthday party, for children ages eight to 12, provides participants with a sense of how their 19th century counterparts might have celebrated their birthdays. The party room is decorated with child-sized antiques, boys wear coonskin caps, and girls wear pioneer bonnets (but the birthday girl gets to parade around in an extremely outside-the-theme tiara). Guests play pioneer games, listen to pioneer stories, and pull taffy. A light lunch of ribbon sandwiches, vegetable sticks and a nut cup is served with peach punch. Ice cream and a birthday cake with the birthday child?s name on it is included, as are party invitations (available in The Lion House office). Birthday presents from guests are held in an old washtub until the birthday boy or girl is ready to open them.
A special gift from the Lion House is included - choice of a stuffed lion or porcelain doll.
Parties are priced for ten children and two adults. A $75 deposit is required 2 weeks before the party. Party times during the summer are 10am, 1pm and 4pm but only 4pm during the rest of the year. Reservations are taken well in advance.
