How far in advance should I book?
It is recommended to book as soon as you know your date. When booking the Paulette's Palace & Production studio or another venue, 2 to 3 months is good timing, especially if you will be doing advertising for an event. Parties at your home should be booked at least a month in advance, weekends fill up quickly and some characters are very popular!

FOR HOME PARTIES : we suggest the character to arrive a half hour to 45 minutes after the party begins so that everyone is present to enjoy!
Can my event/party be outdoors?
Yes! If the weather is inclement, below 60 / above 90 degrees , parties should be inside for the safety of the performer and your guests. The area outside being used must be clean so as not to jeopardize our beautiful costumes. Try to use common sense to make the party safe for all.
