Frequently Asked Questions:

Can we bring our own Food? Sure! Bring whatever you'd like of food or drink and cake, etc. We'll help you set up, serve and clean up.

What age kids do you plan for? Most of our themes are designed for kids between ages 5 and 12. We'll modify as necessary to work with the ages of your child and their friends.

What about parties for younger kids? We offer parties beginning at age 3 and 4. These are designed for open, unstructured play with plenty of pretend-playsets. We limit the size to 12 children max so that these younger party-goers fully enjoy their experience. 

How long is the party? Our birthday parties are 90 minutes of magical, creative fun! The 1st hour consists of the activity or craft and the last ½ hour will be devoted to any food and opening of gifts. If we plan for a longer party, please allow $25 for each additional half hour.

How many kids? The room can hold more kids than you'd likely want at the party. Keeping it manageable, we prefer about 12 - 16 kids. The base cost covers 12. Each additional child is $12.00. Siblings that stay and participate will be included as a guest for the final count. 

Do you offer party invitations? Yes we do! Our graphic designer will create a personalized .pdf invitation for you to send to your friends and family. And they can even use the invitation as a coupon for shopping in our store. Please add $10.00 for printed invitation cards with envelopes.  

What do I bring? You would plan to bring any food to be served. And because most people will want a particular color or design theme for the tables, you would also want to bring all paper goods (tablecloths, napkins, plates, cups and utensils) We can provide our standard Happy Birthday unisex party supplies for an additional $25. We will help carry in, set up, serve, clean up for every party.
