From birthday gifts and decorations, to invitations, gift wrap, cards and cakes - at The Centre you’ll find everything you need to make your loved one’s birthday extra special.

If you’re looking for a hassle-free party option for tweens and teens, some of the retailers at The Centre offer birthday party packages which save you having to track down a venue, plan activities and put goody bags together, and allow you to relax and enjoy their special day.

Whether they’ve got a passion for fashion, love a little pampering or are keen thrill-seekers, there’s a party package to suit everyone.

Claire’s

Budding young fashionistas can have the birthday party of their dreams at Claire’s, surrounded by walls of the latest trends and accessories.

The team at Claire’s will help you choose from a host of creative party themes – including Spa Ooh-La-La with manicures kits, slippers and sleep masks, a Princess theme with tiaras, glitter, feather boas and magic wands, or let them channel their inner Rock Star with sunglasses, lip gloss and temporary tattoos! If they have a favourite character, you can use that as inspiration for the party – popular options include JoJo Siwa and L.O.L.

Kick start their party in style with a Claire’s goody bag - you can choose from an array of must-have items in store with popular options including jewellery, lip balm, plush toys, novelty toys, fun frames, handbags, keychains, sunglasses, pens and diaries.

Or, if you’d rather let your guests decide for themselves, why not treat them to an awesome mini shopping spree? Your lucky party guests get to pick their favourite items at Claire’s using their pre-purchased gift cards and staff will be on hand to help them spend their money the best way they possibly can.

Claire’s will play special party music throughout the store while the party guests shop their hearts out. They can also suggest fun and unique party games and activities for the guests including things like a scavenger hunt in store where guests can track down the Ty Beanie.

The guest of honour also receives a gift up to the value up to £15 and don’t forget to commemorate the day with a special party certificate personalised just for her.

Parties at Claire’s usually take place outside of store hours, such as just before the store opens on Sundays (from 9am until 10.30am) or after the store closes (from 5.30pm until 7pm). Parties can be arranged during store opening hours but it does give the party a more exclusive vibe if it takes place when guests have the store to themselves.

A minimum of six guests is required for a party booking at Claire’s – there’s no cost to hire the shop though there is a minimum spend of £10 per head. A £50 deposit will be required to book a party - just call in to the store in Livingston and have a chat with their friendly staff. The deposit can be redeemed against any shopping that the guests do on the day, or against any product purchased for goody bags. Product for themed parties will also incur an additional charge.

With free fab party invitations available to download from www.claires.com/celebrateparties Claire’s has everything you need to get the party started.

Lush

If they love a little pampering on their birthday, give them an experience they’ll never forget with a totally customisable party at Lush!

Every party booking includes a product making kit for the birthday girl or boy and guests which allows them to create their very own fresh, handmade product and the store offers a selection of games and activities tailored to you which will be selected during your Lush Party consultation.

To make the party extra special, Lush has created an exclusive range of party products including a vanilla fragranced Cilla The Caterpillar bath bomb and Party Balloons reusable bubble bars.

Each guest will receive one of these ready made exclusive products to take home with them, while the guest of honour will leave with a fabulous gift containing three exclusive products of their choice, all bundled up in their very own organic cotton Squiggles Knot Wrap (a fabric alternative to gift wrap based on the ancient Japanese tradition of furoshiki).
