  • Don't forget to take photos and remember to get a family photo with the birthday child as well!

  • If you have questions before your party don't hesitate to reach out! We are always happy to answer any questions you have or to pass on special requests to your performer. 

  • If you need anything the day of your party the best way to reach us is by phone or facebook message sent to The Painted Palace as we are often so busy with parties that we can't get to emails regularly throughout the day but will see phone calls or fb messages. 

  • After your party we would love to see any special photos you have taken! If you don't mind us sharing them publicly please let us know since we always love sharing party photos but will only do so with your permission. When you share photos we would love for you to tag Seattle's Princesses or The Painted Palace to help spread the word about our parties!


What is the schedule/plan for the party?

While each party type has a set list of activities planned, our schedule during each party is flexible. Our performers are trained to evaluate each group of party goers and will determine the best order of activities based on the kids. For example, a high energy group may benefit from an active game first while a shy group may enjoy hearing a story first while they get warmed up! For most parties we end the party with singing happy birthday and saying goodbye as cake is passed out. 

How do I address the Princess?

We ask that you call the princess by any name that fit their character whether it's a generic name like The Snow Queen or a more specific name like Cinderella. For the best party experience be sure to ask all questions as if they are the real character come to life! To the kids this really is what most of them believe and our performers will stay in character throughout your whole party to keep this magic alive. 

Who is here with the princesses?

For many of our parties we send an attendant along with the princess. They are there to drive the princesses (most of them are used to horses, carriages, and canoes - not cars) and to help with anything that you or the performer needs during the party. 

What do I do at the end of my party?

At the end of your party the princess will gracefully say her goodbyes. As she leaves, you can pay your party balance via cash or check if you have not done so already via your party booking link. If you wish to tip your performer you are welcome to do so in cash or a check made out to The Painted Palace with the character's name and tip in the note line or in a marked envelope. We ask that you be discreet with any payment or gratuity so that the little one's don't see!

Can I add additional characters to my party?

We are happy to add additional characters leading up to your party depending on availability but we recommend putting in your request as soon as possible as characters book up quickly! To submit a request please email us at
