Lovely Princesses and a Fantastic Birthday

Snow White and Cinderella were absolutely lovely and the birthday girls had a wonderful time. The princesses came for 45 minutes, which consisted of 2 songs, a story, 2 quick games, and cake cutting. It was the perfect amount for 10 4-year olds. I would recommend Tea in Tiaras without hesitation.

Face painting was great!

We got a face painter for my son's 5 year old party. It was a reasonable rate and she was great! She was on time and did a great job. All the kids were very happy with the face painting they got and the parents, too.
The only thing is I wish we got a confirmation call or email to put our mind at ease that the face painter will be there at the time requested. We ended up calling the owner the night before the event for confirmation.

Great entertainment for our children's camp

Our program does camps for children with chronic and life-threatening diseases. Tea in Tiaras worked so well with our children and interacted with them and showed them such a lovely time. We had around 100 kids playing with them throughout the day and they stayed animated and enjoyable the whole time. Good variety of artists and characters.

Snow White is marvelous!!!

We just had my daughter Chelsea’s 4 th birthday on Jan 14th with Snow White. She is absolutely marvelous. Before, we have thought to have the party in somewhere else, and decide to take Tea in Tiaras for it is relatively cheaper, but really don’t how it will turned out. Until the moment I saw Snow White walked into backyard, I knew I made the right decision, all the little girls were holding their breath, and their parents too. “Did you come from the Disneyland?” A girl of 6 year old asked. Also that moment, you realized, as a adult, you so used to underestimate your kids’ imagination about the princesses in their dream world, you started to appreciate Disney. All of the adults in the party will never forget that the question a girl asked later, “Do you watch TV? My mom said princess never watches TV.”
All my guests’ parents were wowed at Snow White’s professional way of handling the party, reading, activities and attentions to the girls. The most amazing thing is, when we checked our pictures at the end of the day, amazed at that she almost never blinked her eyes (I believe only once), always a big smiling face in almost all the pictures. As a result, your guests and their parents really appreciate the tons of pictures you send together with your thank you note.

Tea in Tiaras

Karrinne started her career as an Event Planner doing large scale fundraising events for the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. After having two children, Karrinne has enjoyed planning baby showers and birthday parties for family and friends. After discovering that she really had a passion and talent for planning parties and face painting, she decided to start a children's theme party & entertainment business called Tea in Tiaras. Karrinne started the business as the Fairy Godmother doing dress-up princess parties for little girls! After they became so popular, she started adding popular princess characters requested by parents! Over time after requests from clients for face painting, balloon twisting, magic shows and other forms of entertainment, Karrinne began adding more and more forms of entertainment to her business.

Over the past 5 years Tea in Tiaras has hosted 300 parties and have entertained over 7,500 children to date. What keeps us so cutting edge is that we have always listened to our parents and continued to expand our business from Princess Tea Parties to a wide variety of other theme parties for both boys and girls. Family is important to us and so we have extended our Tea in Tiaras family even further by hiring professionally trained performers such as actresses that sing and dance, mimes, clowns, aerialists, tight rope walkers, stilt walkers, fire performers, balloon twisters, singers, dancers and much more! Tea in Tiaras strives to always bring quality entertainment and services, offering to take care of every detail and always making sure our parties are fun, entertaining, educational and memorable! Don't go with the rest...go with the best!

Testimonials

Hi Karrinne,
I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the ballerina you sent for our daughter Siena's birthday party on Saturday! Melody was amazing! She was entertaining, talented and so great with the kids. They all loved her and had a blast! She really rounded off our ballerina themed bday party (and was the highlight for the girls). Thank you so much! I will definitely recommend Tea in Tiaras to other moms!
Sincerely,
Lori
