Please allow at least 10 days in advance in order for us to make arrangements for your booking. Once you have decided to go ahead with the booking, we will request for your billing address and contact number in order to issue an invoice for your booking with payment details. A 50% deposit will be required to secure and confirm your booking which can be settled by cheque, bank transfer or online transfer. Once deposit is settled you will be given a Booking Confirmation with full details of your booking.
The remaining 50% fee must be settled by cash or cheque on site on the event date for personal bookings and by cheque or transfer within 30 days for corperate bookings.
Once booking is confirmed the deposit is non-refundable and the booking is non-changeable, except where there is lack of availability upon rescheduling under a red or black rainstorm warning, or No.8 or above Typhoon signal is hoisted. Only under such extreme weather circumstances we will reschedule your booking depending on availability. The 50% deposit will be charged as cancellation fee for any cancellation under other circumstances.
Set Up Requirements
We normally arrive 15 minutes in advance to set up, please prepare 1 table not smaller than 80cm x150cm and 2 chairs in advance as it may cause delay if we do not have a table ready. Please also allow adequate space for children to queue up and good amount of lighting in the area. For outdoor bookings we will need shelter from rain, sun and strong wind.
Our face painting artists can paint around 12 quality faces in an hour depending on details of the designs. We may not be able to paint more than the agreed number of children upon confirmation. If you wish to have an additional number of children painted, a charge of 400HKD will be applied for every additional 30 minutes in which the availability of the face painter is not guaranteed, since the artist may have other appointments on the day. We often cannot go over the agreed time, this is due to our other commitments on the same day.
We encourage those who would like to have their face painted to queue up early once the painting time has begun, as we may cut the queue 15 minutes prior to the finish time depending on how busy it is, in which there is a possibility that we may not be able to paint those who queue up last. Please also consider timing carefully if you are to hire another entertainer during the event, the face painter may not be able to paint all the faces if everyone is off watching a show.
