Most of my parties tend to be around the 2 hour mark. It is the average amount of time to get the children painted, entertained, fed and party bag and business card in had before they are sent on their merry way. Cue.... "breathe a big sigh of relief for the parents!!" Well not until after the sweeping up has been done! he he
However, we offer alternative length parties although from 1 hour (local only) to two hours or even longer. The larger the party the quicker the designs have to be, however we also work with teams so if you would prefer to have several artists working on different services at the same time, then just ask. The birthday child also receives a balloon model as a gift and we endeavour to make something to fit in with the theme of your party. Once your enquiry is made, a confirmation email will be sent along with our terms and conditions and a deposit invoice to secure the booking.
To help you decide how you want to shape your party, here are some options:-
OPTION 1:- Face (or arm) painting for up to a class size party. We endeavour to paint all the children but there usually are a few who
decide to not have anything at all.
OPTION 2:- (a) Face painting and glitter tattoos for up to 25 children. Children can choose from either a face paint or a glitter tattoo but
the birthday child receives both.
(b) face painting and glitter tattoos for up to 15 children. The children can have both
OPTION 3:- Half face painting half balloon twisting party for up to 15 children (flexible on this number but designs have to be quick to
count children twice and changeover).
OPTION 4:- A mixture of face painting, glitter tattoos and balloon twisting for a small number of children.
OPTION 5:- "Princess Parties" for up to 12(ish). All the girls receive a detailed beautiful face paint, glitter gem cluster (which can be
reused or stuck on a precious belonging), a glitter tattoo. Plus a balloon princess wand will be brought for all the children.
OPTION 6:- Face painting and natural henna tattoos (please visit my other website for information on my natural henna).
Please note that due to insurance purposes (and I do value my insurance) children under the age of 3 cannot have their face painted or a glitter or henna tattoo. We can provide them with a small arm design. Infants under the age of 3 also cannot have a balloon model due to the fact that it poses a choking threat.
INFORMATION ON PRODUCTS
What products are used? Not all FDA approved products are the same even if they state they are safe. I have seen many products over the years and in my experience I know that cheap and certain products are to be avoided. Some commercially available and lower cost brands are oily and contain bleached chalk, lanolin and parabens. My main products used are labelled as pure as they do not contain such ingredients and also dry matt. Being a FACE member I have had to research further into product care so I ensure I only use higher end makeups and adhesives. Also, having allergies in my family, I know that it is not worth taking risks with the posibility of a reaction.
