Parties are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
Reservations can be accepted 1 year in advance of the date. A minimum of 4
weeks in advance of the event date is preferred. However, reservations made
within two weeks of the date will incur a 10% rush fee. Contact us to book
By paying your deposit you are agreeing to the terms and
conditions of the contract, which protects the client as well as the company.
When we arrive at your location prior to the start of your event, we will
request that you sign the contract and pay the remainder of our fees
before we begin setting up.
Our packages prices are calculated to include 8
- 12 guests, including birthday child. There is however, no limit on the number of guests you can invite,
but for each additional child over our standard 12 add 15$.
with more than 15 invited children will automatically incur an additional
hostess fee of 75$. If, unexpexctedly, less than 15 arrive
you will still incur the fee. The Mad Hatter Tea was specially designed for large numbers of children and is exempt from the
additional hostess fee!
Costumes and party activities are designed for
children over the age of three since our game props, favors, and prizes
may contain small parts. If children under the age of three are present
for the party, they can be dressed in fancy dress or an outfit but their
participation may not include costumes, favors, game prizes, or a complete
table setting. If a child is expected to participate in the party in any
way (siblings), please include them in your total guest count.
We cater our themes for both boys and girls. Please inform us should you
have boys in attendance so we may accommodate them with appropriate costume choices.
We come to your home, club house, or other location of your choice.
If you are having your event at a rented venue it is the parents' responsibility to
arrange for our accommodation.
Our party packages range in length from 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on age,
theme and party package chosen. Your party hostesses will arrive 30-75 minutes
prior to the event to setup and dress in costume (where applicable).
If you must cancel your party for any reason at least 30 days
before the event, you will receive your full
deposit. If, however, you have to cancel with less than 30 days notice, your deposit
is non-refundable, but we will be happy to reschedule for you. Should it be necessary to
resend invitations, there will be an additional charge.
In the event of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances on your
party date, Little People Parties reserves the right to reschedule your party.
If you choose to cancel your party due to inclement weather or illness, please
remember our refund policy as outlined above. Either way, we will gladly work with you to
choose an alternate date for your event based on availability.
Yes, 8-12 invitation sets are included in our party packages.
They are personalized and theme coordinated. In the event additional invitations
are necessary, a fee of $3.95 will be charged per invitation set.
The client can provide a changing area for the children to change
into their costumes. We provide a dressing screen for modesty.
Depending on the party theme, light makeup, face painting,
and temporary tattoos may be applied.
A photo session might include a group image,
individual photos of each guest and, if time permits, a shot with each guest
with the birthday girl at the hostess’s discretion. Each guest will receive a
photo to take home as a keepsake. Photos are burned onto CD and given to the
parent. As is the nature of photography we cannot guarantee that all images
will be flattering of each guest. Little People Parties reserves the right,
with the parent's permission, to use images of the event on our website and
in advertising materials.
The parent(s) of the birthday child must remain at the party
until its conclusion. The parents of invited guests are not required to be in attendance.
If a child is expected to participate in the party in any way,
please include them in your total guest count. Unfortunately, we may not
be able to accommodate unexpected guests, as we prepare our parties based
on the guest list. However, every attempt will be made to make them feel included,
comfortable and welcomed. A 15$ per child fee for additional unexpected
guests will be applied to the final bill.
The party hostesses are responsible for engaging the
children in activities. However, we are not responsible for the behavior
of the children. We kindly ask that you monitor disruptive behavior accordingly
to ensure a positive party experience.
