THE DETAILS

Every party is two hours and can either be booked 9-11 am; or 12-2 pm. You can bring whatever food you'd like to as long as you take large items like pizza boxes, sandwich trays, etc. with you. A 30-minute gap is provided for kids to open presents, snacks, whatever you'd like.

You can bring whatever drinks you want: soda, juice boxes, or alcohol for those 21+. Please no glitter or confetti, all balloons must be taken with you upon leaving. No open flames except birthday candles.

All decorations must be taken down after the party. Families can come 30 minutes before, stay 30 minutes after to clean up. A 50% deposit is required to save the date; the deposit is refundable up until one week before the event. The remainder of the balance is due 3 business days before the event date. At that point, no refunds, partial or total will be available (aka, you'll want to know exactly how many kids are coming at that point). Attendees cannot be added the day of but can replace participants that will be absent.

Kids will need to wear closed-toed shoes, bring hair ties if needed, and if they have sparkly nails they can't part with, they will be given gloves. Since we're a commercially licensed kitchen, we have to keep with these ServSafe rules to maintain our accreditation.

Please be aware that we do not offer refunds on the day of an event if there are fewer guests than anticipated. Amended invoices can be sent up to a week before your trip. If an event is canceled a week ahead of the date, we retain 50% of the total, and for any cancellations 48 hours before your tour or later, we will retain the total.
