Question: Do you travel? If so, how far?
Answer: If you live within 20 miles of 3421 Patricia Dr in Urbandale, you are not charged a travel fee. A $25.00 travel fee will be applied to parties that go beyond the 20 mile radius. If you are more than 40 miles away, you will pay the $25.00 travel charge plus $2.00 for each additional mile that we must travel.

Question: Where do we go for the party?
Answer: We are full service. You just name the place and time and we bring the party to you! Most of the time we are in the home but we have also done parties at libraries, community centers, hotels, party rooms of restaurants, Blank Park Zoo, etc! We need at least 100 square feet for our parties.

Question: Do you provide the costumes that the guests wear?
Answer: No. The guests bring their own costumes. If some do not have princess dresses, any outfit will do just fine.

Question: Can we have the party outside?
Answer: Sorry no. We need to keep our costumes and wigs inside due to weather elements. We also need an outlet for our music. We will however make exceptions for ROYAL VISITS with the following charcters: Cinderella, Tinkerbell and Blue Beauty.

Question: Each party package is for 8 - does this include the birthday girl?
Answer: Yes. The birthday girl plus seven friends is what each party includes. You may add additional guests for $15.00 each.

Question: Do I need to include babies and toddlers in my count for the party?
Answer: No. Children under 3 are too young for our activities. A 3 year old can be counted in but that child will need some adult assistance during the party.

Question: What ages are "Little Princess Parties" appropriate for?
Answer:: We begin our parties at age 4. Little girls ages 4-8 are in the "prime princess" years. We do offer a ROYAL VISIT option for younger princesses under 3 years of age.

Question: Do the girls really drink tea at the tea party?
Answer: No. We bring our very own Princess Punch with us to the tea party. The punch is made up of pink lemonade, Sprite and sherbet.

Question: If there are not 8 girls at the party, do I still pay full price ?
Answer: Yes. The price is set for "up to 8 people" (including the birthday girl) No discount is given to parties with less than 8.

Question: How much set up time do you require?
Answer: NONE! The party begins when the princess arrives and "unfolds" throughout the party. The royal maid that attends each party serves at hostess and will keep the party moving smoothly from beginning to end.

Question: Are parents allowed to tip the princess?
Answer: Tipping is allowed but it will be nothing that the princess is expecting. If you feel her performance was tip-worthy, by all means.

Question: What do the girls wear?
Answer: Although there is no offical dress code, the children get into the party more if they too are in costume. Any dress would be fine for this.

Question: Can boys come?
Answer: Sure! As long as they are interested in what we are doing, there is absolutely no problem with male guests. Boy will receive "KING" crowns instead of tiaras.

Question: Can the parents of the other children stay and watch?
Answer: YES!!! As long as there is adequate room available, we have no problem with an audience.

Question: Can adults take pictures/video during the party?
Answer: Yes!!! Take as many as you can!! (Feel free to post them on our facebook wall!!).

Question: What do I need to provide?
Answer: You will need a few things. You need to have a table for us to have tea at. (if you are ordering a package with a tea party) This table will need to have as many chairs as there are guests plus one for the princess. We will need one large open room where we can play the games at. Please remember to make the space as open as possible. The princess will also need a chair /couch to sit on during magical story time.
