In an effort to help with any questions and all your party planning, here are some that are frequently asked.
If you are looking for somewhere other than your home for the party, here are places I have gone to that may give you ideas:
Grandparents home or relative
By the character name, of course. :) We take staying in character very seriously and work very hard to maintain a magical appearance the entire time we are in front of the children.
A large duffel bag works wonderfully to carry all of the needed show items, so set up literally takes less than one minute. The show can then begin the moment your character arrives and with a little help of someone you designate to help carry the bag to the performance area, our greetings can begin as soon as we see the children.
Due to back to back parties, a time is usually set once the party is officially held, so we do recommend you make sure you have marked the time you desire when submitting a party. However, please do check in as on a rare occasion, change is possible.
All our face paint is by a company called 'Palmer' or by 'Snazaroo'. These are specialty made paints for the face and are nontoxic, something we take very seriously.
Yes! We custom make appearances and shows for fundraisers and companies all the time. Below are some of the wonderful companies we have had the privilege of joining with:
Ronald McDonald House - Winston-Salem
Chick Fil a - Winston -Salem
Brenners Children's Hospital - Winston-Salem
Thomasville Public Library
High Point Christian Preschool
As the mother of the princess, your role once we arrive is to simply enjoy the show and take as many pictures/video as you'd like. We do ask that if the crowd is unruly that you or other parents could step in as a Princess cannot correct the children and constant interruptions will result in aspects of the show having to be cut due to time. We also ask that you help keep the magic alive by encouraging family members to not ask details of us on the way out 'like where we are from? if we're a student? how many other princesses do we do? etc? (This has all happened and little ears are listening.) Other than those small things, hopefully we make the day seamless and peaceful for you as the host.
Princess Performances are geared for birthday children ages 3-8 years old. Each show will have aspects customized to their age to make games, activities, and interactions age appropriate. Please note that the entire show will be geared to the birthday girl's age and the attention span of her guests. For younger groups with less attention span, the story may be reduced and other activities added if needed.Please note if you saw a party for a 3 year old, the interactions, questions, often games, etc will be different from a party for a 6 year old.
You are welcome to book as far out as you'd like up to six months. If you already know your date, time, and princess, feel free to reserve your slot today by sending in your deposit and booking information once everything is approved. Please note final details would be needed approximately three months prior.
Like all areas of service, tips are appreciated and help us to keep our rates as low as they are. And of course, we hope you are extremely pleased with your princesses performances!
Previously I had not limited numbers, but have found that there is less time for many activites and far too much waiting around for children while face painting, makeup, tattoos, etc were happening as well as other activities. Even though I always brought other activities they could do while they waited, they all wanted to be next and just formed a line to wait. In an effort to keep parties filled with many fun activities and a moving show, as well as including more special activities for appropriate group size and prizes, these changes have been made. However, let me know if you have other needs and a custom package and size may be arranged.
At this time, parties can be booked for all day Saturdays or Sunday afternoons.
After holding off making any changes to pricing and packages for two years and also having greater expenses of gas, tiaras, crafts, prizes, shipping, etc, that have continuously risen, we have had to make a few small changes to the shows offered as well as the rates of a few of the packages. If these expenses were to reduce, the smaller packages will be happily offered, but are unavailable at this time for parties booked after March 26th 2012. We truly hope customers understand and know that we've never seen a party entertainment company offer anything below an hour package -something that we did offer for three and a half years in hopes to meet all customers price point.With rising costs, it is just not cost effect to do so any further.
The number of the children for the party should be everyone participating in the show and games including the birthday girl. This number is calculated for certain activities and the time allowance needed as well as for prizes for those participating.
