Having organized an array of kids' birthday parties for celebrity families, Los Angeles–based event planner and designer Sarah Granger-Twomey of PIE Productions is an expert at all-ages affairs that appeal to the whole crowd. 

Here are her top tips for creating an unforgettable kids' party that adults enjoy just as much -- along with photos of a party she recently threw for her two daughters in her Los Angeles backyard.
