Named one of Parents magazine's top 10 birthday chains, Color Me Mine's international franchise of DIY ceramics studios cater to crowds young and old. Hundreds of unadorned ceramic pieces—including vases, flatware, and whimsical figurines—await the attention of kids and their keepers, who coat them in colorful glazes during birthday celebrations, summer workshops, bachelorette parties, and more. Guests simply follow step-by-step instructions that nonetheless leave plenty of room for creative expression. When they're satisfied with their work, the studio's professional kiln workers fire the finished product, which customers can retrieve within the next week.
