WICHITA — A birthday party Connie Hamilton threw for her granddaughter a couple of years ago is the inspiration for her latest business.
Hamilton is opening Party Party Party next to her Connie’s Cookies in the Sweetbriar shopping center at 21st and Amidon.
“I’ve been asked for years . . . do we do parties or do we do classes?” Hamilton says.
Now she will.
The new business, which will be in about 1,700 square feet, will have several party rooms and will offer packages that include baking and frosting cookies.
Hamilton threw a similar party when her granddaughter, Haley Smith, turned 9.
“It was such a huge hit, most of the girls were like, ‘Mommy, Mommy, I want this for my birthday!’ ”
Hamilton initially thought she’d offer the parties mainly for young girls on the weekends.
“Everybody I mentioned this to said the same thing. ‘Well, what about the big girls? What if we want to have a girls’ night out?’ ”
