There is no shortage of local party venues to celebrate your child’s special day. But sometimes, we just want to keep it close to home — or in it! Convenience, a familiar setting for timid kids, and not having to schlep food and party supplies to a different locale all make at-home birthday parties a win in our book. But being responsible for all the entertainment can feel overwhelming. Corralling a group of preschoolers or moody preteens is not for the weak.

Luckily, that’s where mobile celebrations come in. These Seattle-area party services, rentals and entertainers have your back — bringing the party to you, and making sure everyone has a good time, in the comfort of your own home. From leveled-up sleepovers to out-of-this-world magic shows, cute critters or creative crafts, these on-the-go fun-makers are here to make your dream party come true. All you have to do is sit back and take the pics.

Xakary the Magician

How do you make party magic happen? With an incredible birthday magic show, of course! Famous for his live shows, Xakary the Magician (who got voted in on “America’s Got Talent”) will make sure your birthday kid's special day is truly magical. Expect mind-bending tricks, a magic lesson and loads of laughs. And of course, no magic show would be complete without a fluffy live bunny. The shows run an hour long, and themed goody bags are included.
