Frequently Asked Questions-Parties at LME
How do I book a party? There are a couple ways to book a party and we would love to help you do so! Once you talk to one of our Little Miss Everything party planners to ensure the date and time you want is available we can book your party in-person (at 220 Oak Street, Brentwood), over the phone (925-513-4700), or online here.
Is a deposit required to book a party? Yes a $50 non-refundable deposit is required to officially get your party in the books. The deposit is transferable if you decide to change you party date or time (we need at least one weeks notice to change party date/time).
How far in advance should I book my party? Our Saturday party slots can tend to fill up fast. If you have a specific date and time in mind we suggest you book as soon as you are ready. We are always ready to book parties four+ months in advance. Typically we recommend 4-6 weeks in advance but we always try to accommodate last minute requests as well.
What days of the week do you host parties? We can host parties seven days a week!
What times do you schedule parties? In order to have ample time to clean up between parties we schedule weekend parties with a 10:30AM, 1:00PM, 3:30PM or 5:45PM start. During the weekdays we allow more flexibility with party start times.
What is included in a party? We provide invitations for your party prior to the event. During the event we provide table linens, white paper products, and anything we might need for the services you choose as part of your party package.
Is outside food permitted? Outside food and drinks are welcome. We do not provide food or drinks included in your party package but we work with some great businesses if you would like suggestions for food and dessert.
How long is a party? Parties are 1 hour and 45 minutes of non-stop fun! Our Petite & Sweet Party Package is 1 hour and 15 minutes. You can purchase extra time for an additional fee (and if available due to our schedule).
Can I arrive early to set up for my party? Yes! You are welcome to show up 10 minutes before your party start time. Our party hosts will help you with whatever extra decorations or food you have to set up. Parties that would like to show up more than the allotted 10 minutes of party prep we suggest purchasing extra party time.
How many hosts do I get for my party? During our Petite and Sweet Party we provide one party host devoted to your party. Our Weekday Soriee and Basic Party Package include two party hosts. Parties of 13 or more will have additional party hosts depending on the number of total guests. During peak boutique hours we will also have a LME staff member working our retail area.
Can I tip my party hosts? Absolutely! Gratuity is not included in your party package and is highly appreciated! Our party hosts split the tip evenly.
Do you have a bathroom? We have a bathroom that party guests are welcome to use.
Is there a fee if I cancel? The $50 party deposit is non-refunable. If you give us a week's notice we will be happy to transfer your $50 funds towards a different party day and time or you can use the credit towards one of our events or merchandise in our retail section.
