Any fairy worth her wings will tell you that there’s no better place to celebrate a birthday than at a fantastical outdoor garden. Lucky for San Diego families, Hamilton Children’s Garden is designed to enchant your little ones. Home to many memorable birthday fêtes, this San Diego garden boasts over ten fun areas (from gardens to a tree house) for little revelers to explore and learn. Click through the slideshow for our inside look to a party of whimsical fun.

The Picnic Area

The garden's picnic area can be reserved for birthday parties so that guests can gather in one central area. It's also where our mini fairies slipped on their glitter wings and indulged in a little whimsical face-painting. The wearable wings make a fun (and inexpensive) party favor.
