Trying to entertain pre-teen girls with cardboard and fabric may sound tricky, but Mary Sittler makes it look easy.

The former stay-at-home mom took an idea that kept her intrigued as a child and created My Room Rocks, an interactive party store in Johns Creek, where creativity rules.

“I remember creating rooms for my dolls with my best friend and then I watched my girls do it and I knew there were other girls who would love it too,” she said. “So I decided to make a business out of it.”

Atlanta’s hottest party concept and gift shop for girls has arrived! My Room Rocks, “a girls’ design experience and more”  is not a franchise but an original creation developed by a local mom and former Girl Scout leader of many years, Mary Sittler, along with the help of her three daughters.   My Room Rocks (MRR) features unique interior design parties or walk- in design experiences.  It also offers an eclectic gift shop tailored to girls of all ages including moms, grandmothers, teachers and even a few brother gifts.   Mary named the store to reflect the excitement of her budding designers.  After perfecting the brilliant idea for the  past two years, Ms. Sittler has recently opened My Room Rocks at 10995 State Bridge Road, Johns Creek and  already is attracting a loyal following.

My Room Rocks is all about creativity and design.  It is a one-of-a kind party place that will spark any girl’s  imagination.   At My Room Rocks,  each girl gets to be a designer of her own bedroom (in miniature).   The girls  step into the My Room Rocks Design Center where they choose their wall color, window treatments, bedding, hand- made wooden furniture, accessories, and more.  The choices are endless!  The girls then sit at beautifully decorated  tables that look like beds to assemble their miniature rooms.  “I am always amazed by the creativity at these parties.   I’ve seen eveything from rooms with swings, clouds, jungle, poker,western, flower, and rock star themes.  This is the  one place girls can try out their designs without having to open a can of paint”!  MRR also offers party “extras” such  as realistic furry pets to put in the room, and extra furniture pieces. Also available are MRR t-shirts to be signed by  party friends, and shopping sprees where the girls can buy their own party favors for as little as $5. There is always  plenty of assistance at the parties so the moms can relax and enjoy watching the creativity unfold.   MRR also allows  time for cake and gift opening.   At the end of the party, each girl leaves with a beautifully designed box, with a  carrying handle. As a testament to how much fun and engaging the design experience can be, MRR has already had  many former party guests come back and schedule their very own MRR birthday parties!   My Room Rocks parties start  at $240 for 8 girls and only $25 for each additional guest/designer.  Aside from parties, walk-ins are welcome and  cost $30 per designer.   For more information, call 678-566-3200 to speak with a party planner.

The MRR Gift Shop is unlike any other.  MRR carries a huge selection of Vera Bradley school supplies and room decor,  jewelry, hair bows, cell phone holders, closet organizers, sleep-over bags … “cute, cute stuff”.   Not only does MRR  have items for girls and women of all ages, it offers a variety of items representative of girls today.  “It is not another  pink diva ‘frou frou’ store.  I strive to have gifts for girls with varied interest be it sports, music, animals, dancing, etc.   I also try to find things that you don’t find in other stores”,  explains Ms. Sittler, store-owner.  MRR offers free gift bags  with gift tags for purchases over $10 – so there is no need to wrap or fuss.  Gift registry is also available.

My Room Rocks is currently open 7 days a  week for shopping and accepts walk-in designers.  Hours are 10:00 – 6:00   Monday through Saturday and 12:00 – 5:00 on Sunday.  My Room Rocks is located at 10995 State Bridge Road in  front of Kroger and in between Papa Johns Pizza and McDonalds.  For more information, please visit myroomrocks.com.
