The Party Procedure
The hosts of the party (typically the parents of the birthday child) should arrive 10 minutes early in order to greet their guests. Guests gather in the reception room. Please ensure that guests do not arrive earlier than 10 minutes ahead of time as the reception room may still be occupied from the previous party. Please remind each party guest as he/she arrives to wash his/her hands and put on an apron.
The hosts will receive a form from Jeanette’s Cakes on which the guests sign in on arrival—specifying contact details (parent/guardian’s name and telephone number) as well as any known food allergies that the child might suffer from. Jeanette’s Cakes operates a nut-free facility, but if there is any child in the group with a life-threatening allergy or medical condition, it is recommended that the parent/guardian of that particular child is present for the duration of the party. Since space in the decorating area is limited, the host is requested to limit the number of non-participating guests to 5 (excluding him/herself).
The first hour and 10 minutes of the party (or 1 1/2 hours and if it is a 2 1/2 hour party) is for decorating cakes. Decorating should start within 10 minutes from the scheduled start time otherwise there is the risk of not completing the party program. The facilitator, who is in charge of this part of the party, demonstrates decorating techniques and instructs the kids what to do. The children take their cakes home in a cake box. Cakes, once taken home, should be kept refrigerated until they are eaten.
After decorating, there will be time for snacks we include pizza and lemonade. The demonstration cake serves as the birthday cake. Please ensure that fruit and vegetable platters brought from outside are Nut Free to maintain a Nut Free studio. The facilitator will light the candles on the cake and have the birthday child blow them out. This part of the party usually takes about 30 minutes. It is important not to overrun time since we have to set up for subsequent parties.
Depending on what the host wants, the birthday child can open his/her gifts in the lounge. About 10 – 15 minutes is allocated to opening presents. If the hosts would rather take the gifts home for the child to open, this time can be used to unwind in the lounge. During this time Jeanette’s Cakes staff will be cleaning up and preparing the decorating area for the next party, workshop or lesson. It is important to ensure the party finishes within 10 minutes of the scheduled end in order to ensure that the next party, workshop or lesson can start on time.
