Bold Girlz: Changing the World, One Girl at a Time


Each year we seem to struggle in finding the ideal place to celebrate our daughters’ birthdays. We go round and round birthday party ideas – from theme parks, bounce house places, to tea parties. This year was no different when my eldest daughter turned 10. Until we hit the jackpot of all girl birthday party venues: BOLD GIRLZ.

We decided to go check out the new birthday party spot at the Kaleidoscope Shopping Center in Mission Viejo. Within a few minutes of entering Bold Girlz, my daughter decided this was “the place” she wanted to have her party. In researching all the Bold Girlz services, we also learned that they offer more than just birthday parties.

Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer Cheryl Beck founded Bold Girlz in 2010 with a mission to empower girls through fashion and encourage them to give back. In 2012, Bold Girlz opened its first boutique and party place in Costa Mesa, and a second location in Mission Viejo in March 2014.

“Bold Girlz is a passion for me, empowering young women to pursue their dreams, whether in music, sports or academics. The B.O.L.D. in Bold Girlz is an acronym for, ‘Brave, Original, Loving and Daring.’ We celebrate the ‘Bold’ in all of us where anything is possible,” explains Beck.

As a mom, I love Cheryl’s vision of raising girls that embody these traits of empowerment and confidence, which is all the more reason we decided to have my daughter’s party at Bold Girlz.

Party Packages Galore
Bold Girlz offers a wide range of party packages for girls. Themed parties can be customized and are available at different levels that include Fashion Parties, Spa Parties and Rocktar Parties.


Etiquette Workshops and Finishing Programs
Bold Girlz offers several etiquette and finishing programs for building self-confidence and style. The 2-hour Group Etiquette Workshops are designed to provide highlights of all the basics, including table manners, meetings and introductions, poise and carriage, posture, sitting and cyberquette. Happy Girlz Finishing School is a weekly program that runs for three consecutive weeks, which focuses on self-esteem building, grooming and skin care, etiquette, table manners, hair and make-up and fashion show finale. Dates and times vary based on location.

Community Service Projects
Embodying the core of Bold Girlz mission of growing girls with confidence to change the world, there are a variety of opportunities for girls to model just that. Pillow Case Parties allow girls to think outside of themselves while doing something kind for others. The girls are taught to hand-sew the pillowcase using a pattern, then they add colorful ribbon for straps and turn it into a ‘dress’ sending hope to young girls in Africa. This is a great Girl Scout activity as well. Fashion FUNdraiser is held quarterly with live entertainers to raise 
money for worthy causes.

I’m so glad we stumbled upon Bold Girlz, which offers more than just parties and glamour. During my daughter’s spa birthday party, the Bold Girlz staff not only did an amazing job sharing the importance of self-care and having fun, they encouraged that loving yourself is the first step in changing the world.
