2. What day & time slots are available?
Typical parties run for 90 minutes
Fridays: 3:30 pm; Saturday & Sundays timings are 10:00 am, 12:30 pm or 3:30 pm. You are welcome to add an additional 30 minutes to your party for a small added fee.
3. How soon should I book my event?
Our parties book up quick. We typically make birthday reservations 1-3 months ahead depending on the personalization required. We strongly urge you to book your event as soon as you have made a decision. If we have an opening and you request a reservation less than one week out, we will charge a rush fee of $50. Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide printed invitations for parties booked less than 2 weeks out. In such an instance, an electronic Evite or Paperless Post is recommended.
4. How many guests can you accommodate?
Our parties are intimate and fully customized. All events are designed and priced for 10 children. However, we can accommodate up to 22 children. Please note that due to fire & safety rules, we are unable to make any exceptions beyond 22 children. We also strongly encourage drop-offs for children 5 and older.
5. What is your refund policy for birthday parties, just in case?
We require a $200 deposit at the time of reserving you party date. Please note that all parties at La Dee Da are custom created especially for your child based on the theme and package you have chosen. We take great lengths to personalize every aspect of your event and a lot of time, research and costs go into delivering a truly spectacular event. 50% of the party deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable in the event of a party cancellation up to one month of party date by Party Host, for any reason. There will be no refunds given for parties cancelled less than 1 month prior to party date. The cancellation fee is the property of La Dee Da, LLC. Unfortunately, 100% of your deposit will be forfeited (and no credit will be issued) if you need to cancel within 7 days of your scheduled party. In the case that we have booked outside vendors like a pastry chef for a custom cake, a music vendor, a character visit etc. an additional cancellation fee will be applicable based on the vendors being used. We hope you will understand that there is just not enough time for us to schedule another party and other vendors have reserved their schedules as well. If for some reason due to an emergency you are unable to keep your event date, we will try to accommodate your event at the next availability we have. Our events book up months in advance and this could mean having a party during the week.
6. Do you allow outside food?
We do allow you to bring in your own food for your event. However, we recommend that you keep the menu simple as children tend to eat little at birthdays. Typically cake/cupcakes, a snack and juice box is sufficient. Please do keep in mind that we do not allow any outside food that contains peanuts. If you are looking to add some additional pizzaz to your party have a few recommendations for pastry chefs that offer an exciting portfolio of designer cakes and cupcakes. We also have the option to add several different party trays or pizza for an additional charge. We offer a complimentary coffee and water station for adults for our Goldilocks package.
7. What about food for adults?
If you chose to bring in food for the adults, please try to keep the items simple again. We also ask you to kindly to bring in your own paper and plastic products if serving food for adults. We typically only provide the set-up for the children. If you need additional paper products for adults you are welcome to add-on for a small charge of $5 – $10.
8. Can I use my own decorations?
We provide upscale personalized custom styling for every birthday event. However if you wish to add your own decorations you must let us know one week in advance. We do not allow any glitter, silly string or confetti. You are responsible for taking down your own decorations. Kindly complete the registration form to begin planning a birthday party at La Dee Da. We will follow-up with you to confirm and finalize details within one business day. If you wish to stop in and see the studio and browse through our party portfolio, please call us to schedule and appointment.
9. Do you provide birthday party favors?
Depending on the birthday package you chose, a favor may or may not be included in your pricing. We can customize favors for your guests complete with ribbons and favor tags. Favors start off at $6/each and up.
10. Do you allow drop-offs for birthday guests?
We encourage drop-offs for party guests 5 and older as long as there are 2 supervising adults from the host child’s party present throughout the entire event. Supervising adults are responsible for all un-accompanied minors and must assist with pick-ups at the end of the event. Parents will be required to sign a drop-off form and we will only release the child to the names listed on the form and with proper identification.
11. Can we open gifts at the party?
There is typically not enough time to open gifts during the allotted 90 minutes at the birthday event. You may add additional time to your standard 90 minute party time if you would like to open presents at the studio.
12. Will someone help me load my car?
Yes, we will gladly assist you with taking gifts to your car after the event. Please pull to the front driveway and a member of our studio staff will help loading up.
13. How much time before my event can I come to the studio?
We allow the host family to come to the studio 15 minutes before their event. Please note that we are busy setting up for your event prior to this time. If you come too early it could cause distractions and delays to our set up procedures. Similarly, we also allow an additional 15 minutes at the end of the event for packing up and loading up cars etc. We do start breaking down the event right around this time and in certain cases getting set up for the next event. There will be a $50 charge accessed if you and your guests stay past this time frame.
14. Do you offer birthdays outside of the studio?
We are premier event planner & stylist for children’s parties and yes, we can set up a party, shower etc. at any location of your choice complete with set up, projects etc. Please contact us at 404-963-7391 for more information.
