Q: Why should I book with Princess Parties and Events?
A: We understand that there are many entertainment companies in the area to choose from and we are so happy that you are considering us to help make your celebration magical. We could list off the things that we do differently than the majority of our competitors but at the end of the day what it really comes down to is that we care very deeply about what we do and want to share that with others. We are sincerely passionate about this kind of work and want to not only utilize our talents and abilities to create a magical experience for your little one but also help them know how special they are. We live in a world that is becoming increasingly more difficult to raise children in innocence and imagination with good examples in the media to look up to, and strive to not only create a fun atmosphere, but be good role models to them. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and what we do. If you book with us, we promise we will do everything within our power to make your event a wonderfully magical experience for you and your guests. :)
Q: How far in advance should I book my party?
A: We strongly encourage booking at least 4-6 weeks in advance if possible, especially if your party date/time and character choice are not flexible. We do sometimes have last minute availability so please don't hesitate to contact us, but please keep in mind that all reservations must be confirmed with a deposit at least 48 hours prior to the event or weekend, whichever comes first.
Q: Do I need to pay a deposit to book my party?
A: As is industry standard, a deposit is required to book your party. This booking deposit goes toward the total party price and reserves you on the calendar, giving you priority over others wanting to book that day. The deposit amount will depend on the service you are booking.
Q: Where should I plan on having my party?
A: We bring the party to you! Most commonly people have their party in their home if they have a living room or back yard large enough to accommodate their guest count. Other common places we have hosted parties are reception halls, churches, local dance studios, indoor playgrounds, preschools, parks, and banquet rooms.
Please also make sure before you book the venue that it allows outside entertainment, as some venues have their own restrictions and guidelines for this. Certain beach and public locations have restrictions regarding music, so please make us aware of this beforehand so we can substitute certain activities if necessary.
Q: Will the character(s) I book look like what is pictured on your website?
A: The costumes pictured on our website are the actual costumes we use at parties. If something looks different it is because it has been updated since the picture was taken to ensure a quality experience. Actors may vary but if you'd like to see a picture of your performer prior to booking just ask!
A: There is no limit to your guest count! Do keep in mind, however, that your party host will be able to more effectively entertain your guests if you keep your party to a reasonable size.
Q: Can you customize activities to accommodate younger or older ages, and can boys participate?
A: Yes! Please let us know when you book and we will accommodate your age range! Boys are welcome to come too! Some personalities may not be as engaged as others but we try to structure all of our activities to be enjoyable for both boys and girls.
Q: Is there a way to receive a discount for my party?
A: Yes! We offer a discount for Monday-Friday daytime parties! (Holidays not included, certain restrictions apply.) We also offer a military discount (with proof of service) and have special offers available for returning clients.
Q: What types of party games do you play?
A: The party games we play will depend slightly on your group of children as each group is different. We will "play it by ear" a bit when it comes to specifics to accommodate your particular group but generally speaking, the activities are self contained (meaning they can be done in a living room or similarly sized space) and do not require prizes or set up.
Q: Should I have my guests arrive before the party host does?
A: Yes, it is a good idea to start your party before the party host arrives so everyone will be in attendance for the activities. Usually 30 minutes after the party start time is sufficient.
So that your paid time can be fully utilized, it is helpful if you already have the area set up where you would like the party host to entertain.
