What makes Petite Princess Parties so special!
We aren’t your run of the mill entertainment company. Petite Princess Parties was created with the vision of offering a higher standard in children’s entertainment and events.We provide quality entertainment filled with singing, royal activities, storytelling, magic, and more! With the highest quality of costumes, we make sure every detail is perfected. Each of our costumes are custom designed and created by our own Fairy Godmother, and provide the foundation of the quality entertainment we hope to achieve. Our princesses are some of the most talented actresses and singers you can find in the region, and bring a love of children, and especially a love of magic to create memorable experiences for your son or daughter. Our goal here at Petite Princess Parties is to bring life to famous storybook characters that live in your children’s hearts.
Are you Disney Princesses?

I don’t see anything that fits my party on your packages page? Now what?
We want to help you find the perfect “glass slipper fit” for your party. Please email or call to tell us more about what you’re looking for. We are always happy to provide a customized quote based on your party specifics.
What can I do to make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible?
There are a few things that always helpmake the day run smoothly. First, try to reserve a close parking spot for the character, so she will not have to fight to find parking and walk far. It also helps the party start at the time it is supposed to. Have water available for the character to drink throughout your party. Try to get the kids ready and get them together right before the character arrives, so she can get into the activities with the children right away. Arrange for the eating time to be either before or after the character visit. (If pizza arrives at the same time the princess arrives, the two conflict with eachother). Have an outlet available for us to use for our music player. If there is not one available close to where you are having us do the activities, please supply an extension cord for us. That way we can have the music while we are doing games etc. If your planning an outside part, make sure the area is guarded from heat/sun, or from any wet weather. Have a clean, dry, shaded area for activities, free of dirt, mud, water and any other bad weather conditions that may cause an ill effect to the party activities and the guests.And last but not least have your cameras ready throughout the party, you don’t want to miss special moments of your daughter with our princesses!
How does the flow of your visit go?
Our entertainers will arrive 10 minutes prior to your desired start time to set up and make any final costume changes. They arrive with all the necessary materials for your chosen activities and will be fully costumed ready to enter the party right on time! We begin with the talented princesses singing their signature song. From there we move into the interactive story time. Based on your choices – we put together a customized “glass slipper” fit based on the size of your group and party space. Our overall goal is to keep guests engaged as much as possible! So cutting down on waiting time is key. Often with two character parties you will see one princess doing sparkling makeovers while another leads a group craft and we’ll all join back up together once we’re through for the next fun activity! Our hour wraps up with about 5 minutes to take any photos you may want or to sing happy birthday etc.
How do you fit so much into only an hour? I don’t want to feel rushed.
Every party is different, just as all children react differently to live entertainers. While we work on a timeline, our main goal is to create an enjoyable, energetic experience for the children. If necessary we might improvise or modify an activity to facilitate maximum enjoyment and comfort. In other words, we go with the flow. We also kept this in mind when structuring our packages, which is why you will notice there are maximums on the amount of children per package. If your party exceeds these numbers we require an additional performer or may direct you to the next package up. By keeping our child to performer ratios low – we are able to ensure that every child feels they’ve spent adequate time with the characters and we, as entertainers, are able to ensure the party keeps moving and everyone stays engaged for the full hour! Of course if you would like to add additional time we are able to offer that as well! Just take a look Petite Princess Pick and Choose Options
So the princess is fine handling all the kids for an hour? I’m thinking of hosting the adults in a separate area during this.
Adult guests are expected to supervise their children. While your entertainers strive to offer a picture perfect entertainment package, they are not there to babysit nor discipline unruly or overexcited children. If a child is acting out and being disruptive during a party, your entertainer may politely ask you or another adult to remove them from the group until they are ready to re-join. Also, a lot of our activities such as sing alongs, story time, and crafting are a wonderful chance for parents to participate with kids and the princesses! Not mention ADORABLE photo ops Thank you for your understanding in advance!
Do you provide dress up clothing?
We can offer a dress up trunk full of costumes, props and wings for $50. Please be aware the dress up trunk is for packages over one hour.
Do you have your own party space?
No. We are a fully mobile party company! But our hope is to find a space to host our own parties next year!
Do you entertain at parks or other venues besides houses?
Yes! We can travel to any type of venue your party is located. Some venues have their own restrictions and guidelines, so please check if your venue allows outside entertainment before booking with us.
How much space do you need?
We’ve performed in all kinds of places and strive to adapt our activities to your space. Ideally, enough floor room for everyone to sit in a circle together is ideal. We like to conduct a lot of our activities in a circle time-style atmosphere.
What is your service area?
We service all of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati. That doesn’t mean traveling is out of the question. We would charge a travel fee based on mileage
What is your travel fee?
We will travel up to 20 miles for events with no travel charge to you. Any parties located between 21 miles to 35 miles from us have a $15.00 trip charge. We determine Mileage via http://www.fueleconomy.gov/trip/ . We calculate our mileage from Cincinnati, OH. You can check your distance before you call if you’d like, or we can check for you when you book with us. Any parties located between 36 miles to 50 miles from us have a $35.00 trip fee. Anything over 50 miles up to 60 miles is a $50.00 travel fee and a 1-hour minimum visit must be booked. Call for pricing over 60 miles
When should I have my princess arrive?
What we see most often that works very well is to have the princess(es) enter 15-30 minutes after your party start time. This allows for any latecomers to not miss out as well as it gives kids a chance to settle in. Once our hour of entertainment comes to a close it’s also a nice option to be able to lead the kids to either food or cake. It lends a nice distraction for an easy exit after the princess(es) bid farewell.
I’m ready to book my party! Now what?
Please fill out our online booking form. This allows us to capture all of your reservation details in one place. From there we reserve your performer(s) and contact you directly to confirm all your reservation details as well as provide your final party quote including tax and any other fees that may apply.
When is payment due?
A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking. The rest can be paid on the day. We kindly ask you pay our performers away from the children, so we preserve the magic!Final payments are due no later then the day of your party, and we only accept cash on the day of your event. If you would like to make you final payment by credit card, please call and we will send you an invoice, which you may pay no later then the Wednesday before your party.
How do you collect payment?
We collect payment securely through PayPal. PayPal is a highly trusted 3rd party processor, which allows you to maintain the privacy of your payment details. If you’ve ever made purchases on Amazon or other similar sites you are probably familiar with the process! Providing credit card numbers over the phone or through email is not secure and we will not process payments that way. We are however more than happy to assist you with using PayPal and answering any questions for you
What is service tax on my invoice? Why am I paying that?
Since we are a company that offers a service, we charge all our clients service tax to cover our KY state tax business tax at the end of the year. Many vendors don’t separate it on invoices and instead lump it unseen into their flat fees. We separate it on invoices to allow us better organization as a company at the end of the year.
Do the characters accept gratuity?
Absolutely! The entertainers that serve you are all extremely well trained and make it their number one priority to ensure your party is a success. Gratuity is not included in the total of your package price, so if you want to show your entertainer that you loved their performance, gratuity is a great way of doing so. Though its not expected, it is always appreciated.
What is your cancellation or refund policy?
All parties performed are nonrefundable. If you cancel your party up to 48 hours before your date, we will issue you a refund, minus your deposit. A cancellation of your party less than 48 hours before your date will incur a 100% cancellation fee. Clients may reschedule their party at no extra charge if we have availability. Clients will be refunded 100% of their payment in the rareevent that Petite Princess Parties has to cancel an event on an emergency basis.
