Goldfish Swim School: A Birthday Paradise

This post is part of a sponsorship with Goldfish Swim School. Here at CMB, we only partner with businesses that we believe bring value to our community!

Every year, I struggle with planning where to go or what to do to celebrate my children’s birthday. Once I have that part figured out, I usually spend the day of the party stressed over all of the hosting duties.

Goldfish Swim School Birthday party

This year my family was blessed with the most fun and stress-free birthday party at Goldfish Swim School. This was the first time in six years that I was actually able to truly enjoy and join the party with my family. Instead of running around worrying if there’s enough food on the table, keeping the party on schedule, and making sure everything is taken care of, I was able to actually swim and play with my kids thanks to Goldfish. It was the most fun and unique place for a party.

Goldfish takes care of organizing and setting up!

Mamas, half the battle of a birthday party for littles is getting everything ready to go, yes? I can’t be the only one who feels overwhelmed when faced with the prospect of shopping for supplies, decorations, goody bags, etc. With a Goldfish birthday, I didn’t have to! 

We arrived at Goldfish Swim School a little early to set everything up only to find that they had already done that for us. (Glorious!) When we walked in, it looked like a tropical oasis with tiki hut tables and palm trees. The staff had made gift bags for us with so many neat things in them, including a coupon for the families to enjoy another free swim. Ours even included a t-shirt for the birthday boy! We could see the pool from every angle of the room and it was so inviting that my kids were chomping at the bit to get in the water. My son didn’t even want to wait for his friends to get there; he just wanted to dive right in!

A Goldfish birthday includes worry-free pool time

We had an hour and a half of fabulous swim time, which included a lifeguard for the duration of the party. The staff provided an abundance of pool toys and activities for everyone to play with, even a canoe! My son loved climbing in the canoe and tipping it over while others enjoyed playing on the other unique pool toys like surf boards and floating cars. The staff would kindly come in to keep us on schedule and let us know when it was time to order the pizza and generously offered to pick it up for us. (Two more things that Mom didn’t have to track. Did I already say it was glorious?!)

Once we were out of the pool, the facility had very nice showers and immaculate changing rooms and restrooms. They provided hair dryers and clothing dryers for your swim suits and towels. As the evening started to wind down and it was time to sing “Happy Birthday”, Goldfish was even kind enough to supply delicious chocolate and vanilla cupcakes for us.

If you are looking for a vacation from the stress of party planning and hosting, I suggest you slip on your swimsuit and enjoy a paradise-themed Goldfish birthday party! The atmosphere was relaxed and inviting and the staff was kind and helpful. Most importantly, my birthday boy had the best time swimming with his friends for his birthday. I cannot thank them enough or be more grateful for such a fun and smooth birthday party.

No matter the time of year – whether you are sweating in your shades or freezing in your winter coat – you can throw on your swimsuit and enjoy your time at Goldfish Swim School.
