Birthday Party Process
The big day has arrived, now what? We’ve outline how the party program is run to insure your child and friends have a wonderful time!
- If you have requested invitations, we will have the jpeg file emailed to you within 2 business days.
- If you are having a canvas painting party, your child can choose the design they would like to paint here. (all guests paint the same design)
- Party Day
- You may arrive at the studio no earlier than 15 minutes prior to party. (We may have a workshop or party scheduled before you that will be just ending)
- Your Party Hostess will greet you and help you get set-up in the party room.
- If you are having a pottery or mosaic party, your party hostess will have a cart ready with a selection of pieces each guest can choose from when they arrive.
- The Party Hostess will lead the children through their art project (the art session takes up to half the party time)
- Approximately halfway through the party, the Party Hostess will clear the projects from the table and prepare the table for food consumption.
- The last half hour or so of the party is dedicated to pizza, snacks, cake, ice cream etc. (Remember we provide one 8oz water and one ice cream cup per child, you are responsible for bringing any paper products or utensils you will need for whatever food you bring)
- Presents must be opened at home.
- At the end of the party, the Party Hostess will settle up the final bill with you.
