A deposit for an in-house event cannot be transferred/used for anything other than in-house event. (no change to a Tea Party To-Go option, individual Tea Seatings, or other food/merchandise.
FINAL HEAD COUNT: This is a seated, catered, formal place setting event so we MUST receive an EXACT head count. We will not be able to accommodate last minute additions/changes if additional guests show-up. Please let your guests know it is necessary to RSVP.
One week (7 days) prior to the event, your final headcount is due. Please call or email us with that number. t.
If a person is present within the party room during your event, they are to be considered a guest for the final head count regardless of whether they choose to partake of any food/tea or not, including children during and adult event or adults during a children’s event.
If the party is for children (under 18), we require at least 1 adult (parent/guardian) to be present as a paid guest per every 5 minors and to be responsible for the conduct of the minors.
We do not allow persons to attend in “observance”. All persons present must be included in the final, paid headcount. The exception to this policy would be for a professional photographer hired to shoot during the event (they will not be seated nor a part of the food/tea service).
All guests will be served the same menu, regardless of age.
*If children are present, they must be supervised by an adult (18 or older) at all times. Highchairs and/or booster seats are not available.
Due to space constraints, strollers are not permitted in the Party Room.
Our setting is not suitable for children under the age of 5.
DÉCOR: In order to make things as easy as possible for you, we encourage you not to bring any added décor items. Our Royal Party & Tea Room is a beautiful, highly decorated space requiring nothing more. Should you wish to bring added party décor, it must be limited to small, table-top items. NO glitter, NO confetti. NO glitter-filled balloons. A small banner may be used and may be attached to our front curtain area with clothespins only (not provided).

EVENT TIMING: We generally hold multiple events in the party room each day so timing (entry and exit times) is critical.
