Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule a party?
Please call us at 717-292-7465 or contact us via email to check on the availability of your desired date.

For K.I.S.S. Party Rentals: Once availability is confirmed, a $125 security deposit and a signed party agreement are required to reserve your date. The security deposit will be refunded once all party items have been received and inspected for damage or loss. Balance is due five days prior to the party.

Payments can be made with check, money order, PayPal, or major credit card. A $40 administrative fee will be charged for non-sufficient funds (NSF) on all returned checks.

Please note that prices and contents of packages are subject to change without notice.

How far in advance should I contact you?
We book on a first-come first-serve basis and suggest you secure your date six to eight weeks in advance. Parties booked with less than two weeks notice before the party date will incur a RUSH FEE of $50 and must be paid in full at time of booking and subject to availability. Parties will not be accepted with less than one week notice.

What is your service area?
We serve South Central Pennsylvania (including York, Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, Mechanicsburg, Carlisle, Hanover, and Gettysburg). Our K.I.S.S. rental service area is limited to no more than 25 miles one way from our studio in Dover, Pennsylvania.

Can the party be held outdoors?
Yes. Restrictions do apply, so please contact us for details.

What ages are the parties for?
Our packages are designed for children 4 to 10 years of age. We do custom parties for all other ages on a case-by-case basis. Please note that some items in our packages may not be toddler safe.

Are boys welcome?
Certainly! Please let us know if boys will be attending and we will attempt to have the proper attire, etc. available for them.

What type of menu items do you provide?
We do not provide any menu items in our K.I.S.S. rentals; however, an optional cupcake add-on is available. We are inspected by and registered with the PA Dept. of Agriculture.

Other than our own baked goods, state regulations prohibit us from bringing to your party anything that has not been prepared in a licensed commercial facility. There is an additional charge for the add-on cupcake service.

Special dietary requests (i.e. food allergies) may incur an additional catering fee.

Do you do custom events?
Yes, on a case-by-case basis. Our vast resources allow us to offer many unique features to enhance your party experience. If you have an interest in something special or would like suggestions on how to customize one of our party packages, just let us know. We will prepare and present options for your consideration.

Or, if you prefer, our talented staff can provide an event especially created to reflect the personality and interests of you the client or guest of honor. Just remember, the possibilities are endless.

An original themed wedding we created was featured on "The Knot" and acknowledged by one of HGTV's programs. Whatever you need or dream of, we'd love to hear from you. Please note that consultation fees may apply.

What if the property of Fairy Godmother and Coterie is damaged during my party?
All damages will be accessed on a case-by-case basis and the dollar amount will be strictly on replacement or repair costs. Fairy Godmother and Coterie will make the determination as to whether an item can be repaired or must be replaced.

Do you add the Pennsylvania Sales Tax to the price or is it already included?
Our advertised prices do not include the 6 percent sales tax; however, invoices will include the sales tax.

What if I need to reschedule or cancel my party?
If you need to reschedule the event, every effort will be made to make an alternate date in a reasonable amount of time, based on availability.
