Birthday parties are an essential part of childhood, making life-long memories for children and adults alike. Smile and A Song Princess Parties discusses the latest in birthday party trends and how you can throw the coolest party around!

Popular Princesses

Moana and Belle were Smile and a Song’s most popular characters in 2017 since their movies were fresh on everyone’s minds. Parents even built wayfinder boats in their backyards for Moana, and Belle waltzed in several beautiful ballrooms. We even got Lumière out to a few parties as a duo with Belle, where he sang “Be Our Guest”! Belle was more than happy to be a guest at the Director’s Guild of America, where she wore her beautiful Christmas gown.

Snow Princesses maintain their popularity and are showing another surge of interest in 2018. They performed several events throughout the last year, including the Frozen Sing-a-Long at the T.O. Civic Arts Plaza to hundreds of children in attendance. Parents always enjoy decorating with ice castle standouts, hanging snowflakes from the ceiling, and even creating a play area with “real” snow!  

Fun-Filled Party Locations

Most of the parties Smile and A Song caters to are boutique parties in the home, but we also attend parties hosted at event facilities. We’ve been to playspaces such as Scooter’s Jungle in Simi Valley, the Hideout in Oak Park, and Kidz Korner in Encino, to name a few popular options for out-of-home parties.

Another classic favorite is Alice and the Mad Hatter, and what better way to celebrate with them than a lavish Mad Tea Party! We have been fortunate to have Wonderland Party Props to create the perfect setting to celebrate a very merry unbirthday and more. Our Mad Tea Parties are not only popular with children, but Alice and the Mad Hatter also make appearances as atmosphere characters at upscale adult events, like the Los Angeles Chocolate Festival and Pastry Show at the Omni Hotel in Los Angeles.

Not in the mood for a Mad Tea Party? We’ve been the guest of honor at plenty of  proper tea parties as well, especially popular with younger girls. The Tranquility Tea Room in Thousand Oaks, various country clubs, and even private homes have been a delightful setting for these smaller-scale parties. Your character princess of choice take the lead at these tea parties, and she would sit at the head of the table and review the proper etiquette for a lady at a tea party. Little girls enjoy a taste of real sophistication by dressing up and attending the event with real china teacups and dishes, complemented with finger sandwiches and pink lemonade.

The Magic of Smile and A Song

With children, every moment counts, which is why we hold our crew at Smile and A Song to the highest standards in all aspects of “character,” no pun intended. Our cast members are rigorously tested to ensure they can give quality performances in any situation, and are trained to never break character, no matter what. We also take care to thoroughly screen our cast members, making sure that they are compassionate, safe, and can work well with children (and adults) of any age.

Smile and A Song specializes in smaller, more intimate boutique parties to ensure that each child receives quality, one-on-one time with their character. Check out our different package options to see which one fits your needs. Though our primary services areas are in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, we do offer a customized video service if the distance is too much to travel.

We highly recommend booking your party 4-6 weeks in advance to get your choice in dates. Contact us today for more information or event inquiries!
