Top 10 checklist to make your party a success

  1. Arrive no more than 5 minutes before your scheduled party time. We will have your table set up and ready for you at your scheduled time.
  2. Parties have a fixed itinerary to fit nicely within the 2 hour time slot. Your party host will pace your party and let you know what will happen next (play time, pizza, cake cutting, presents, etc.). After the party, guests who would like to stay longer can re-enter for $12 at the admissions counter.
  3. You may bring a cake, but be sure they do not contain any nuts. The TreeHouse is a serious peanut-free facility. No outside birthday cakes are allowed without a booked birthday party held with a credit card.
  4. You may bring goodie bags for guests, to be passed out at the end of the party, but again... no nuts.
  5. You may bring themed plates and napkins if you wish, but we provide all you need.
  6. Do not bring themed cups. We use cups with lids and straws.
  7. Do not bring decorations such as table cloths or signs.
  8. Do not bring ice cream or any other outside food. We cannot store it or serve it.
  9. Balloons provided by the TreeHouse are for decoration only, and may not be removed from the table. Please note that we have a strict balloon policy: If you wish to bring additional balloons in your party theme, you may bring in 1 single bunch on its own weight from the balloon store. Balloons must stay on the table until you leave the building, and may not be given out to children while at the TreeHouse.
  10. Relax and let your party host take care of serving food, refilling drinks, cleaning up and pacing the party. We want you to enjoy yourself!
