Be mindful that we receive many parTea requests and we want to be able to accommodate everyone. We strongly recommend booking 4 to 6 weeks in advance of your desired parTea date (if available.)It is always helpful if you can provide a few alternative event dates and times as well. You may also check our Event Calendar for date ability. Once you have chosen a parTea date and time, we will hold your reservation for 24 hours to give you time to complete the guest list. At that time you may pay your 50% deposit on our website. Your deposit will secure your reservation, and we will begin finalizing and customizing invitations to be mailed to you. We are sometimes able to accommodate a party on short notice however an additional fee will be applied.

Siblings of Guests: Your ParTea packages cover only the guest of honor and their guests. Please include any siblings in the final guest count if you would like for them to participate in the parTea activities.
Guest attire: Many of our parTeas include costumes/dress up. The children do not get completely undressed, however we asked that the girls come prepared wearing a leotard, bathing suit or slip to wear under their parTea attire. Boys wear costumes over their clothes. Guest attending have the option of bringing along a pair of dress shoes to wear with dress-up.
Late arrivals: Please advise all guests that the parTea will begin promptly at the scheduled time. All activities are carefully planned out, and any child arriving late may join the activities at the point that they have progressed. This is necessary to ensure the least amount of disruption to the parTea, and your understanding is appreciated.
Adults at parTea: We ask that the parent(s) of the birthday child please stay for the duration of the party to attend to possible needs of the children. The parents of guests are welcome to stay and enjoy the fun (if space allowed), however we we ask that onlookers keep the noise level to a minimum so the children do not get distracted and can adequately hear instructions from the hostess.

If you choose to cancel the parTea due to severe weather or illness, please remember that your deposit is non-refundable. We will gladly work with you to reschedule your parTea for an alternate date. Please be advised, if new invitations, food or beverages are needed there may be an additional charge.
Outdoor ParTeas: If the weather is nice, you may take the parTea outdoors to a clean, non-grassy, non-dirt area such as a patio, deck, or garage.
