A typical party takes about 4-6 hours total, this includes time spent from arrival to departure. One-one half hour for set up, two to two and a half hours for the activities and tea party and one hour for break down and clean up. A 50% deposit is required upon booking. Completion of payments can be made the day of the event.
Before arrival, tables and chair must be places in the area in where the party will take place. My assistant and/or I will take care of everything else! We do light decorations, activity/tea party set up, host, and clean up. Parents/Guests are welcome to participate (parental assistance is required for children under the age of 5), take photos, etc. All the parent of the Birthday Child really needs to do is entertain the adult guests (if they are not the ones having the tea party) and periodically check on the younger guests to ensure that everyone is behaving accordingly.
Upon arrival I will unload all the supplies in the area where the party will take place. Hand parent food/drink items that require refrigeration and start setting up.
During the event I will introduce myself and give a brief rundown of what’s to be expected and the rules/etiquettes of a tea party. After that, the party will commence. We will start with the activity. Then move on to dress up and tea party preparations; have the Tea Party, eat, and drink (have FUN). Once everyone is done with eating/teatime this is the best time to sing happy birthday.
Finally, I/we break down and clean the area for departure. The remaining balance will be made at this point and the event will have officially ended.
