What package should I choose?

Usually, the two most important factors in determining your package are the length of time you’re looking for and the number of guests you are expecting (we think in terms of “screens”, so families count as one guest). Our Special Package is most popular, but if you’re throwing a party for a pre-k child or younger, our Base Package might cover enough time for that age. If you’re the type of parent that likes to “go big,” you’ll want the Special Package Plus, which includes the most guests and additional planning time prior to the party.

Looking to book a short-notice event?

We require all bookings to be completed no later than the Monday prior to the weekend of your event (weekday events require 4 business days). Due to volume, we cannot guarantee a time slot for any event until complete payment is made on the payment portal of our website and we’ve replied in kind to confirm. Do not delay! We often fill up weeks in advance!
