The Pink House's stimulating Kindermusik playdates, designed for infants to 5-year-olds, give pint-sized Puccinis a chance to tap into their innate musicality while strengthening intellectual, emotional, and social development. The 45-minute class delves into instrument exploration, helping your youngster discover beats, rhythms, and sounds from storied musical appliances, then hops on the larynx train for vocal play, teaching babbling babies and toddling opera singers how to form words and replicate the inflections of melodic windstorms. Settle into story time while building on language skills, then bop, twirl, and form a toddler jam band during movement activities. Round out your three-quarter hour with some together time, harmoniously bonding with your tuneful descendant over newly acquired music skills and your shared love of experimental German pop-polka, then bid adieu with a 10 song CD or memory card and an instrument in tow. The PJ party time playdates give parents the chance to have a romantic child-free dinner from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., while children are entertained with one hour of music and storytime, followed by one hour of supervised play and crafts. Grouponers may buy multiples of either option as gifts, or for their own children to keep them ahead of the musical curve. An excellent way to introduce your child to the world of chords and harmonics, the playdate is also ideal for busy parents or overprogrammed robot nannies who are searching for a unique meet-and-greet between their young one and the art realm.
More than 12,000 different plants line the meandering paths of Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Spread across its 67.5 acres and more than 25 gardens are 30+ works of outdoor sculptures on display, making it one of the largest collections of public horticulture in the US. Between walks in the gardens, guests can relax in a Japanese garden with a traditional teahouse, and kids can opt into one of the educational programs to understand the science behind botany.
The botanical gardens also host events year round, such as antique shows, plant sales, and cocktail parties, so that the plants don't get bored and fall asleep. Additionally, the lecture series brings in big names and novelists to discuss their trade and put on shows for the garden's visitors.
Standard Furniture traces its origins back to 1912, when a local family began traveling through Birmingham, peddling fine household furniture out of a wagon. Four generations later, the business has blossomed into 13 retail stores throughout Alabama and Tennessee, and its century-long commitment to quality furniture and customer service won it the Alabama Retail Association’s Silver Award as one of the Retailers of the Year in 2011. Each gallery abounds with bedroom, living-room, and dining-room furniture from top designers such as Lane, along with mattresses in a range of shapes and styles from brands such as Tempur-Pedic, Serta, and Jamison. At each location, a knowledgeable staff awaits to offer design counsel, suggesting pieces that best suit a household’s style or will hold up against a disobedient pet woodchuck.
At seven locations, shoppers can peruse Mission Possible Bargain Centers' inventory of new and gently-used clothing, furniture, and household items. All proceeds benefit the ministries of the Jimmie Hale Mission, a nonprofit that has worked to help men, women, and children in need since 1944.
