How to run a successful children’s party

 

 

Tips for Hiring an Entertainer:

After your initial contact with any entertainer (magician, balloon twister, face painter, juggler), be sure to ask for an agreement (email or letter) before you issue a deposit. The agreement should outline information :

  • total fee (does this include travel?)
  • type of payment (check, cash, PayPal)
  • cancellation policy
  • arrival time
  • time of performance
  • insurance and CORI information (if working with children in a corporate setting: library, school, recreation department, etc.)

Be sure to also ask about:

  • set-up time needed
  • amount of performance space required
  • if there is a tipping policy
  • any limit as to the number of attendees
  • tables, chairs, or electricity needed
  • can this be done indoors/outdoors
