As you drive on the 67 acre estate in a distance you see the castle. Her party will begin with a 30 minute tour of the castle and will be about where Barbie sleeps, eats, gets dressed (wink, wink!)
Below is the carriage house, all gatherings are held here or at a small room in the guest house. The Lyndhurst is for touring only, no functions inside due to preservation efforts.
The archway leads to a courtyard (where we'll play games, weather permitting.)
Now, before you start tossing snowballs at me for such an extravagent site. I am thrilled to help (in some small way) with the continued preservation of such an architectural gem. I also love exposing children to architecture. And, at a $100 room rental fee it is significantly cheaper than most kiddie party venues. ($100, is if you have a family membership to Lyndhurst.)
I'll be coming up with ideas to transform this space. One of the reasons I start planning early is so that I don't make last minute budget busting decisions. With plenty of time ahead of us, I can explore all options for creating a special "5th" party.
