Santa Claus is Coming! NO WAITING IN LINE!

What: Pretend Play Party in Denham Springs is hosting Santa for three days!

Our play center is age-appropriate for children 0-8; however, ALL ages are welcome!

We can not guarantee that everyone will be able to get their picture within his two hour time frame.  Each customer will be given a number upon arrival if they would like a picture with Santa.  Customers must be present when their number is called or their turn will be forfeited.  Pretend Play will no decline to give numbers out at the time in which we can not guarantee a picture before Santa departs for the day.    Admission covers the cost of play.  NO REFUNDS will be issued if children do not take a picture with Santa.

Our Frozen Party Package - Take A Look!

Our favorite graphic designer Lauren Haddox Designs has turned our Birthday-themed Party Pack into a Frozen color scheme, and we have added embellishments to tie it all together.


Here is the FROZEN theme that will detail what we now provide in our ultimate party packages:


We provide the banner, framed decor, cupcake stand, cupcakes, cupcake toppers, and accents as pictured above.




We provide a Frozen Poster displayed in the party room! (Empty space is where the pizza boxes are placed).
We provide the waters and capri suns with themed accents!



We provide a birthday-themed gifts Sign that is placed on the cart that tells your guests where to place their gifts that our party assistants will unload onto the stage for present time.



We provide the sugar cookie party favors with either the initial of the birthday child or the age that they are turning on their birthday.  And we will decorate the theme with accents that tell your guests "Thank you!"



We provide the birthday-themed printables and a sign that welcomes your guests to the table.



We provide a welcome greeting so that customers walking in know that they are walking into a party for a special guest of honor.  


We provide invitations for the expected number of guests (up to our regulated number of expected guests), that is optional and the responsibility of the customers to pick up in advance upon paying the deposit.




And finally, we provide the silver table covers and one-topping pizzas unless you opt out (due to the party time), in which no reimbursement will be given.




If you choose to order more food, cupcakes, or sugar cookies for your adult guests you may at an additional cost. 
Only perishables go home with the family of the guest of honor.

ALL other inclusions are the property of Pretend Play Party and (extras) do not go home with the family of the guest of honor.

PRICING


Should you throw a birthday party at your house or Pretend Play?

As parents, we want to "save money" and have a birthday party at our houses rather than rent a facility.
But then, we spend anywhere from $250-$550 on our parties without realizing it.  We spend money on: food, dessert, plates (big and small), cutlery, table covers, decorations!, balloons, activities/entertainment (bounce houses, characters, etc), and many other things ( hidden costs! ) that come with the territory of a party-ready home.

On top of ALL of that, you may need to contact bakers, planners, rentals, etc.
And you will probably shop at about 4 different retailers before you find everything you need: party stores, markets, etc.

AND don't forget the cleaning, preparation, assembling, hosting, and post-party clean-up.

WHY DO THAT TO YOURSELF?!?!?
I think because you don't usually add up all of the individual transactions (and minutes) that you pour into a party, you may think that you are saving a bundle.

But, that's probably not the case.

So, let us do the work for you!

We now have Party Package's from our favorite graphic designer Lauren Haddox Designs that are Birthday-themed to your color scheme.

Here is a PINK AND GREEN theme that will detail what we now provide in our ultimate party packages:

We provide the banner, framed decor, cupcake stand, cupcakes, cupcake toppers, and accents as pictured above.


We provide the waters and capri suns with themed accents!


We provide a birthday-themed gifts Sign that is placed on the cart that tells your guests where to place their gifts that our party assistants will unload onto the stage for present time.

Do We Have Any Teacher-Moms or Teacher-Grandmas Out There?!?

As a former teacher of Kinders, I am excited to reveal our latest offer for teachers… YOU deserve it!


We would like to offer teachers 10% off Melissa & Doug retail to stock up on table time toys, dramatic play toys, and more educational supplies for their classrooms.  If you spend over $100, we are glad to offer 20% off!

10% off admission is another perk for teachers!

SUMMER HOURS

We have extended our hours for the month of June, and if all goes well July will be the same:




A little about our changes:
On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays we are usually only open until 2:00 but we have extended our hours for June, and if it is sustainable then we will keep them open until July.
Saturday and Sundays have extended our hours also ever so slightly.
We are not putting on any scheduled family nights this month but will possibly plan a big summer bash with face painting and other fun activities and will promote the event later this month.
June 8th we booked a private party so for all of you afternoon birds, we have hours for you this month!

Leave a comment with your feedback. 
We love to hear from YOU!
