Planning a Chick-fil-A Birthday Party


My baby will turn five this Sunday, I seriously cannot believe it. I can already tell that we are officially leaving the toddler phase, not only by his appearance (no more dimple bottom ha), but his maturity and personality has just blossomed over the past few weeks. The way he loves and cares for others just blows my mind and the phrases I hear from him typically make me take a second look (whether it’s obnoxious or sweet).

I think five is going to be a great age for my little man! Let me know if you have any tips on having a five year old.

We celebrated Ryders birthday this past weekend at Chick-fil-A.

I know, it sounds a little crazy to celebrate a birthday at a fast-food establishment. Four years ago me, would probably have never done this. However, three kids later, this was a wonderful idea.

Why Chick-fil-A?

If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you would know that my family adores Chick-fil-A. We visit our local Chick-fil-A at least once a week. Not only do we love Chick-fil-A’s food, but my little guys enjoy the play place so much. This particular Chick-fil-A has one of the only play places that my littlest guy, Jett does not get stuck in.

The Details

Each Chick-fil-A doesn’t have to offer birthday parties. I called three Chick-fil-A’s to see what all they offer. It was incredibly inconsistent across the board. One of the Chick-fil-A’s would have handle everything for me, they would take care of the decorations, food, favors, and have the cow come. This sounds great right? The problem was, the party had to be on a Wednesday or Friday in between the hours of 3pm-5pm, needless to say that was slightly impractical.

I ended up picking the Chick-fil-A that essentially didn’t offer anything. This worked out for me, since I enjoy the party planning aspect. One of the event coordinators for our Chick-fil-A did stay with us the entire time and helped me with anything I needed.

Sadly, the cow was unable to make an appearance. The coordinator told me before the party, if they were not busy she would make it happen, but they turned out to be fairly slammed that day.

What I Ordered

Each child received their own Chick-fil-A kids meal and were able to pick their beverage. I also ordered a nugget tray and fruit tray for the adults. I didn’t order beverages for the adults, which I now would have done, I was a tad parched by the end.

Ryders party cost me about $220 total, including food for five kids and adults, the cake, and decorations. We actually had two meals worth of left over nuggets, so for the first time in history we ate Chick-fil-A on a Sunday!

This party was perfect for our current stage of life. It was great on the budget and perfect for the amount of kids who attended.

    How fun is this?? Our closest Chick-Fil-A is about 45 minutes away, so this isn’t something that’s feasible for us sadly, but if we get one closer I would totally have a birthday party there.

    I haven’t been to a Chik-Fil-a in literally years! They sure have made upgrades in certain locations with play areas for the kids.

    Oh no shame that the Chik Fil that you had chosen was quite inconsistent but it is great that you did not mind doing the party planning yourself. Still at least you had two meals left over!

    I have yet to be to a chick-fil-a because I try to only eat out on Sundays and … I love his birthday cake. Sounds like a great party!

    This is such a cute idea. We use to go to Chick-fil-A for a playdate once per month. I am sure my daughter would love this party.
