If a child does not show up, do I still pay for that child? Please remember, you will be charged for the final head count you gave prior to the party.

Cancellations and Refunds: If you must cancel your party for any reason, the following refund policy applies: We will be unable to refund your deposit.  
Invitations:  Invitations are mailed to you in bulk three weeks prior to your party date. You may then mail them or hand deliver them at school.  

Arriving & Departure Times: I suggest that the birthday girl and guests arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to the party start time.  Extended-hours parties can be accommodated if arrangements are made in advance.  I appreciate your consideration and understanding.
  Costumes: All costumes are made to wear over a child�s own clothing; however, leotards and/or spandex pants and t-shirts are my recommendation.

Parking: Please leave some space for us to park near an entrance where we will not be blocked in. We would appreciate easy access, as we have a lot of heavy items to carry into your party.

What happens if a guest arrives late? Because our parties are based on a schedule, they work best when all guests arrive on time.  Those guests coming late may join the party at whatever point it has progressed to. FOR EXAMPLE: The group has already completed the make-up session and has moved on to the dress up, the late guest must skip the make-up and join in the dress up. This is necessary in order to provide the least amount of disruption to the party, and your understanding is appreciated.

Can parents of the guests stay for the party? This is a high-energy party with make-up, dress-up, photo taking, crafts, and lots of movement.  If there is ample room without interference we welcome an audience.  

Who takes care of a guest if they become ill, are a behavior problem, or do not want to participate? Guests who do not wish to participate will need to be attended to by you. We are not responsible for the behavior of the guests.Tea-lightful Parties is responsible for hosting your party and engaging the guests in a constant activity. Good behavior is always promoted, but it is your responsibility to monitor and take charge if a child is not behaving, becomes ill, or does not wish to participate.

Can boys attend he party? We welcome boys at our parties.

Can siblings of the guests stay? All guests under three years of age must be supervised. We provide many accessories that contain small parts at our parties and they may not be appropriate for very small guests. Please remember that our party packages cover only the guest of honor and their guests. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate unexpected guests or siblings of guests, as we prepare our parties based on the final head count given to us prior to the party. Siblings (of any age), who are not guests of the birthday child, will not be permitted to use any equipment.

Food and Beverages: Please refrain from serving "messy" foods at your tea party such as chili dogs, condiments, and other items.
I will be happy to suggest an appropriate party menu for the event.

If a child does not show up, do I still pay for that child? Please remember, you will be charged for the final head count you gave prior to the party.

How do I reserve a party? To book a party please contact us to check the availability of your date on time.  After your date is confirmed, please complete our online payment reservation form and follow the instructions to submit your deposit online. We are happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding the party via phone or email but reservations must be made using our online reservation system. 

Can I hold my party upstars? Unfortunatley, we are unable to set up and host parties on the second level.  In recent years it has become physically demanding to carry such items that we bring upstars. We thank you for your understanding.
