FAQ What do you do? Snowflake Entertainment will send a fully costumed character of your choice to your event location. There, the character will engage in games and stories with your guests. We have several package options so that your experience may be tailored to fit your needs.
Why can’t you offer Disney characters? Other companies do! We respect the Walt Disney company, so we do not use their trademarked characters and products for profit. It is illegal to do so, and jeapordizes Disney’s image. However, our actors use speech, movement, and mannerisms (as well as costumes, accessories, and hair styles) to give the correct illusion. We work hard to make sure your child believes he or she has truly been visited by a fairy-tale character.
What sets you apart from other companies? We are unique in many ways! Firstly, we are unique in quality. Where appropriate, our entertainers wear quality wigs–we never buy from halloween stores! You will not see our wigs or our costumes in any shop! All of our costumes, wigs, etc are handmade using quality material by our experienced seamstress. These may all seem like trivial things, but when it comes to taking pictures, a cheap wig or low-quality satin will show its true colors. . Beyond that, our actors also study their characters. We look at each characters’ back story, how the character would move, how the character would talk–all of it! We work hard to be the best we can. All of our actors are extremely passionate and dedicated to what we do.

If the event you want to cancel is three months away or more, we can refund you your deposit minus a $25 administrative fee. If your party needs to be canceled due to inclement weather and unsafe roads, we will do our best to reschedule your party to a new date and time and your deposit will be applied to your new party date.
Isn’t ____________ under copyright?
All of our characters are taken from the public domain, meaning they are not under copyright. Most people assume that a particular company came up with a character or a character’s name, but a closer look at the original tales shows that is not true. Belle was Belle in the original “Belle et la Bête” (Beauty and the Beast), Aurora was named so in Tchaikovsky’s ballet, Dame Gothel was the wicked witch in the original Rapunzel, etc. We have taken each detail into careful consideration to avoid copyright infringment.
Can boys come to Princess parties? Boys are always welcomed at our parties and they usually enjoy themselves as much as the girls do! If your party involves items that the children take home, the boys’ items are always “gender-appropriate” and are carefully selected to match the specialness of the girls’ gifts. If your party involves dress-up for the girls, the boys will be provided with dress-up material to be pirates. If your party involves make-up for the girls, the boys will get temporary tattoos and/or face paint.
What do I need to supply? Please supply a room large enough for the princess to be able to entertain your guests. If your party involves making a craft, please provide one large table (with or without chairs.) If your party involves make-up, nails, face-painting or tattoos, please provide one small table and two chairs for these activities. What age of children are your parties geared towards? Snowflake Entertainment will structure and design your party around the ages of your child and her guests. However, most parties are geared for children ages 3-11. Many families want a princess at their child’s 1st birthday party. The princess will do her best to make sure that the young guest of honor enjoys her special day!
Do you just do kid’s parties?
Absolutely not! We are available for play-dates, bedtime stories, random visits, weddings, grown-up birthdays, anniversary parties, random parties, sweet 16s, honeymoons, company events, church gatherings–all sorts of things! While we are happy to attend a grown-up’s birthday , we DO NOT ever do “adult” parties.
We are having our party at a restaurant. Can a princess come to the restaurant? We are happy to provide entertainment at parties hosted at a restaurant or at any other venue. We just ask that you inform the restaurant staff that you will be having entertainment. If an extra table is needed to do crafts or face-paint, etc., we will ask you to arrange for this with the restaurant staff. When is the best time for the Princess to arrive at my party? The princess should be schedule to arrive at least twenty minutes after your guests are scheduled to arrive. When should my guests eat? We prefer if your child guests eat before the Princess arrives at the party. However, if you prefer to serve food during the Princess entertainment, we ask that children clean their hands and face before touching the princesses.
How far will you travel for an event? All parties within a 20 mile radius of our home office in Nashville, TN are included in our current rates. However, we charge $1 per mile round-trip, so we are able to travel absolutely anywhere! Any city, and state, and, yes, any country! If the event location is not in Tennessee, travel expenses apply. Should I tip the princess entertainer or the assisting staff members? Gratuity is not included in the price of the party packages; however, they are greatly appreciated. We recommend a standard gratuity based on the total party amount of 10% to 20% at your discretion.
