I just threw a birthday party for my father in law at the Pratt Fine Arts Institute. All of the attendees (60 guests) were encouraged to make glass art - fusing glass, blowing glass and glass bead-making. There were instructors on-hand who were great and guests now have a unique piece of art that they made. The professional glass blowers started off the evening with the birthday boy blowing huge glass bowl that he helped design. We turned the sculpture studio into a buffet room, hired a band and had a great time. There was food (outside caterer) and drinks and art and birthday cake. Everyone loved it.
Anyway, if you are looking for a totally unique party...call up Pratt...be one of the first to have this new kind of party. Also, feel free to contact me with questions, etc
