My child loves Disney princesses/Cars II/The Wiggles. Can you do any of these party themes?
No. Home Made Parties does not do any licensed character parties.
Can I just have a simple clown party?
Yes. Clown parties are our fave here at Home Made Parties. Simply book and pay for a 1.5 or 2 hour classic party package (clown party).
Why the name – Home Made Parties?
The name Home Made Parties encapsulates two aspects of our service and philosophy. A Home Made Parties event can come to your home, bringing the party and the fun to your child in their very own home (we come to you). Home Made Parties is committed to sourcing home made and hand made goods and products for your parties and events, made by crafters and artisans committed to creating unique goods with an emphasis on sustainability.
How much does it cost?
Please refer to our Party Packages page for a detailed breakdown of the pricing structure.
Party packages start from $165.
For most clown parties expect to pay from $195 (1.5 hours) OR from $250 (2 hours)
For custom theme and party creation, where we work with you to create a children’s party package suitable to your needs and budget the concept creation fee is $300. (This does NOT include any of the items used to create your event.)
Please note: Home Made Parties does not do licensed character parties.
What is a ‘concept creation fee’ and what do I get?
This is a detailed list of both ideas and contacts that you can use for almost every aspect of your child’s party, including, but not limited to, the type of confectionery and food served, (custom made and ordered), ideas on how to present it all, party favour ideas, even the type and style of fabric that will be used. It is a ‘grand plan’ consisting of both original ideas and how to implement them, and may include some of the contacts of where to obtain the supplies. You are essentially paying for the design. Where you go from that point is completely up to you, the client. You may chose to implement all of the design/ideas yourself, at your own time and expense and thus that is the end of the service provided by us, OR you may chose to provide a budget and work closely with Home Made Parties to see the party implemented and executed perfectly – set up (and packed up) for you.
How much notice do you need?
Well, that depends. For a simple clown or fairy booking possibly only a couple of weeks, if we have a vacancy. For other parties, involving catering, you may need to contact us at least 2 months prior to your event. This gives enough time to source products. (3-4 months is even better!) Christmas is usually the busiest time, so if you need a Christmas booking, PLEASE contact us at least 1 month prior to your event and accept that you may need to be flexible with the times on offer.
We do NOT usually accept bookings more than four months is advance.
