project catwalk | fashion show party
The name of the party may ring a bell to some of you, but for those who haven't seen the television series: this is a genuine "fashion design and fashion show"-party!
The birthday girl and her friends become professional designers on a mission: design and create your own dress! And, yes, they will be using a full grown sewing machine (no kiddy stuff) to sew it all together!
And of course they need to accessorize Šnd rehearse the fashion show,
so lots to do, and time will fly :)
Watch the pictures of a project catwalk party at our studio!

during the party:
- 2 experienced party planners attending (Elles and Margot)

- a fashion show for all the parents
- a dress to take home!
- a lovely chocolate theme-cake with the name of the birthday boy/girl on top
- drinks all around | funny theme cups and a very silly drink :)
- several treats, both sweet and savoury
location | at home or at our studio
This workshop party can only be celebrated at our studio, and since our studio is not available for children's activities during the weekend, this party can only be booked on Wednesdays anf Fridays.
Our catering consists of a nice chocolate birthday cake with the name of the birthday girl/boy on it, a very special drink (we don't want to spoil the surprise, but we call it "ditch water"... yes we do :) served in nice theme cups and several little snacks, both sweet and savoury.
A) do-it-yourself | not applicable
B) party at yours | not applicable
C) party at ours | two party planners attending | catering included: 225 euro
party after 16:30 | evening surcharge
In principal, our children's parties end at 16:30 at the latest. At some occasions we may be able to organize a party
ending at a later hour but in those cases, however, a 15% evening surcharge for the entire party is applied. (225 + 15% = 258,75)
late Friday night party | golden tip
If the birthday girl attends school until 15:00 hours on Fridays, you may want to consider throwing a late party on a Friday, starting at 15:30 hours and including a 30 minute high tea (posing as 'dinner') somewhere half way through the party. All in all the party would than last until 19:00 hours (ending with a fashion show from 18:30-19:00), but on arrival at home the children have had their supper and, after all, it's the weekend, so perhaps their parents won't mind, just this once :) This scenario is rapidly gaining momentum, and all the children seem to love it, but off course it does come at a price. The total cost of this late Friday night party would be:
225 (the party) + 15% (evening surcharge) + 75 (high tea) = 333,75 euro.
party during the weekend | weekend surcharge
This particular party can not be celebrated on Saturdays and Sundays, because our studio is not available for children's activities during the weekend, and we cannot possibly move all our appliances to another location.
All our prices include VAT.
- online photo album afterwards: 20 euro | example
- homemade 'goody-bag-balloons': 2,50 a piece | example
- 'poffertjes' lunch for 8 children: 32 euro | extra guests (mam and dad?): 4 euro pp
- high tea for 8 children: 75 euro | photograph of our high tea table
