Date: July 1, 2010
Carolina Parent readers voted on the best party planning services and goodies in the Triangle, resulting in these 2010 Family Favorites.
Ted Rablais of Ted's Twisted Balloons and Magic was voted the top family party entertainer. He twists balloons (as many as 100 for one sculpture) at birthday parties, elementary schools, churches, trade shows and other types of events. Magic tricks are also part of the show. www.tedstwistedballoons.com.
Bounce U tops the list of popular places to have a kid-pleasing celebration.
Honorable Mention – Monkey Joe's is also a tried-and-true location for parties. (See Rainy Day Outing for both facilities.)
Birthday Cake or Treat
Once in a Blue Moon Bakery's cakes are top of the list for many parent party planners. The bakery also turns out delicious cookies, pastries, breads and other baked goods fresh every day. If you can't eat just dessert without feeling guilty, breakast and lunch are served in the café. 115 W. Chatham St., Cary; http://bluemoonbakery.com.
Honorable Mention - Harris Teeter grocery also is a popular local stop for cakes and baked goods. Locations across the Triangle; www.harristeeter.com.
