Additional Guests:

​All parties with more than the allotted guests per package will require an additional fee of $15-$50 per guest. To ensure we have enough help to handle your guests and the requirements of the party,unless otherwise noted, all events with more than 6 guests will require additional attendants and a fee of $40. Parties with 8 or more guests will require a gratuity of 18%.


Minimum/Maximum Guests:

 Our children parties are designed and priced based on the packages chosen,with a maximum of 12-15 guests per party including the guest of honor. If only 4 guests show up you will still be charged the price of the package since it is an "up to" price. Please note that any amount of guests over the package "up to" amount (including the guest of honor) will acquire an additional guest fee. If you have guests show up who are not part of the final head count we will be unable to accommodate them as we will have only brought enough supplies for the amount of guests expected.​ Likewise, because we purchase and provide items based on your head count, no refunds will be given for guests who do not show up. 


Siblings/siblings of guests: 

At Couture Avenue we strive to make it our responsibility to make sure things run as smoothly as possible. To do this we ask for a final head count 7 days before your event so that we may have enough supplies, gift bags, and treats for everyone. Unfortunately we can not accommodate siblings who are not part of the guest list. While our Children Parties are for any age, our Spa Parties are not. We also can not have children under the age of 5 participate in our spa parties. We will allow a child who is 4 or 5 to participate in the spa parties that are meant for older girls, but you or the child's parent/guardian will need to help the child with activities that may be hard for them to handle alone.


​Guest arrival time: 

We suggest that the guest of honor and their guests arrive no more than 10 min before the event time.Guests should also arrive with unpolished nails for spa parties.


Party Time:

​ Couture Avenue Parties last between 1.5-4 hours. The amount of time needed is based  on  many  factors. Since we schedule more than 1 party a day, we can not extend a party pass the allotted time stated on your invoice. We will arrive 1-4 hours in advance, to set up. Please allow 1.5 -2 hours for us to clean up and break down our stations after your event. In efforts to serve you better, we ask that you do not allow children, early guests, or pets in the service area during set up or breakdown times. 


Set Up:

Please be sure that there is adequate parking for our staff to access your venue easily and efficiently.

​We will desire a large single room to set up the proper stations, as well as access to a sink for water disposal (Spa Parties). Please note that WE DO NOT move furniture. The space we are using will need to be clutter free, clear, and open. Please inform us upon booking what space or spaces we will be using. Once we figure out which room we will be using, set up happens quickly. We request that you do not allow any children or pets in the area during set-up. Please note that pets are not allowed  in the party area during the event time for hygienic reasons. Failure to remove pets from said areas could result in our staff leaving the premises. No refunds will be given.


Other Locations:

Couture Avenue Parties is a mobile party service which means we come to you and host your event where ever you would like. There are a few things you should note when having a party other than your home. If you decide to host your party at a hotel, clubhouse, indoor recreation center, etc. you are responsible for the fees, permits, rentals, etc. We may not be able to bring chairs and tables inside of hotels, clubhouse, indoor recreation center, etc. If this is the case, arrangements will need to be made, but hopefully tables and chairs will be provided with your rental. Likewise, any parties at hotels that require a bellman or parking fee are your responsibilities


Food and Beverages: 

If you request refreshments they will be made fresh the night before,the day of your event, or purchased from one of our vendors. Our punches are made on location so that they will be and taste fresh.  If you are going to provide your own refreshments please inform us of your list so that we can decide what kind of decorations to use on and around the table.
