Hosting an Event Soon?
Welcome to Fun Spaces! We bring play to your event so adults can have a good time while their children do the same, just down the hall.
Are you throwing a dinner party? Adult birthday party? Family Reunion? Getting married? Corporate shindig? Signature fundraising dinner?
While planning your event, you may run across people who you want to attend but may experience barriers in doing that because they have children. You may be one of those people. You might not think it’s your issue. I’ll share my story so you can see where I’m coming from.
I was one of those people.
At a time not too long ago, I was invited to an adult-only wedding, college graduation, several networking meetings, and other special events, but as a previously active woman who was the mother of a toddler (and one on the way), I had a difficult time experiencing life as I once had. As a young mother and Triangle transplant with an always-working husband and few family and friends for babysitting, I realized I could either:
- Attend the event without being fully present because my young child would be with me and need my attention.
- Find a babysitter or drop-in childcare center and worry about what my child was doing for half the night, again not fully enjoying the space I was in.
- Miss attending the event and catch the social media highlights from my other friends who attended the event and had an awesome time.
I chose all of those options at various times during that year. Once my second child joined our family, I truly ran low on options and decided I wanted to change that for me and others in my position. I knew I wasn’t the only person to experience this and after some research, saw that this was not a completely new concept. I founded Fun Spaces to address this need and was quickly working as soon as I started sharing it. That was in 2010 and we continue to bring play to events across the Triangle.
How we work
Fun Spaces is a pop-up play space for special events and meetings. We bring age-appropriate play activities, caregivers and snacks for children ages 6 months to 14 years old to your event venue, and completely manage the space while you and your guests are having a great time. We customize the space to match your event in an age-appropriate way so your youngest guests won’t feel like they missed a thing. There are various ways you can engage with us to provide play for children at your event. Please check our services page for more info on what we do and the types of events we work best with.
