Late arrivals: Please advise all guests that the party will begin promptly at the scheduled time. All activities are carefully planned out, and any child arriving late may join the activities at the point that they have progressed. This is necessary to ensure the least amount of disruption to the party, and your understanding is appreciated.

Guest attire: Our parties include costumes/dress up. The children do not get undressed, and we asked that the girls come prepared wearing a leotard, bathing suit or slip to wear under their party attire. Boys wear
costumes over their clothes.. The costumes must be kept reasonably clean. Therefore Buccaneer Birthdays will ask that the kids not eat or drink while wearing the costumes.
