A kid’s birthday party where everyone is invited to get creative. What could possibly be better? Lavulous Workshop’s flip flop party package offered at its Repulse Bay shop offers up to eight kids the chance to design a pair of flip flops in their own special way. With soles made in Brazil, the party-goers can choose to mix and match soles and straps and customise them with an extensive range of cute and bright charms.
There is even a new special range of women’s charms launching soon for the mums who accompany their children and want a slice of the fun! The birthday party package starts at $290 per person and includes unlimited accessories. Children who attend the party are kept creatively entertained and enjoy the beautiful beach setting at Repulse Bay. Plus, they leave with their own beautiful flip flops in hand (or on their feet, if they can’t wait to get them on). Win-win all round!
Sassy Mama tip: Lavulous Workshop’s Repulse Bay venue is ideal for small, intimate parties, but if you would like to have 10 kids or more share the fun, you could invite the team to your chosen venue as well.
From now till July 2020, use the code SASSY2019 when booking your child’s birthday party, or while ordering one of the premade flip flop favourites to get a 5% discount (online or at the store).

No wonder then that FunZone in Kennedy Town makes our list! This creative custom-built soft play and indoor padded playground is 100% North American built and adheres to the highest international safety standards.
