Children's Jewellery Making Parties
in the comfort of your own home or venue
Organising a child's birthday party can be a stressful experience. Let me take some of that stress from you with a Ciao Bambino Jewellery Making Party. Suitable for children age 5yrs to teens, it will be hassel-free, creative and fun and will leave you free to prepare the food or mingle with the adult guests while I take care of the entertainment.
I will visit your house or venue with my vast selection of colourful beads, charms and threads and teach the children to make their own beautiful bracelets, necklaces and bag charms/keyrings.
All activities will be appropriate for the age of the children and tuition will be provided for the duration of the party.
Scroll down for FAQs and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
How much does a Ciao Bambino Jewellery Party cost?
5 to 8 years - £90 for up to six children / £12 each additional child
9 to 12 yrs - £130 for up to six children / £12 each additional child
12yrs + - £150 for up to six children / £15 each additional child
How long does the party last?
The party will last around an hour for 5 to 8 years and an hour and a half for 8 years and over. However if the children need a little longer to finish their creations, that's OK.
What is included?
All the beads, charms, threads, tools and accessories needed to make at least three bits of jewellery each
Expert tuition for the duration of the party
Gift bags for the children to keep their jewellery in saving you the stress of party bags
Certificate of Achievement for each child
Invites (digital copies so you can print as many as you need)
How much time do you need to set up?
I will arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the party starts to get everything ready for the children.
What do I need to provide?
A table big enough to fit the children and myself around with space in the middle for our beads and things
Some background music (kids can be really quiet when they're concentrating so a little background music is good)
Food and games for after the jewellery making
I will bring beading mats to protect your table but you might want to provide a tablecloth for a little extra protection
Is it only suitable for girls?
No, not at all. In my experience all children like to get involved. My bead collection contains blues, blacks, greens, pinks, purples....something for everyone. One of my favourite jewellery creations ever was made by a grandad!
Does the party have to be at my house?
No. I can provide a jewellery making area for your festival, fair, wedding, holiday club or event. Please let me know your location and duration of the event and I will be happy to provide a quote.
How do I book?
Please send us a message via the form on the CONTACT US page with your questions, date and time of the party, number and age range of guests. I aim to answer all messages within 24 hours but please allow a little longer at weekends/public holidays.
How much notice do I need to give?
As much as possible to give you a better chance of your date being available. If you have left it until the last minute (no judgement. Life gets in the way sometimes) please contact me anyway, I may be able to book you in.
How do I secure my booking?
Once I have confirmed your booking, a £30 non-refundable deposit is payable within 5 days. If the deposit is not received within this time then your date will be made available for someone else.
When do I pay the balance?
The balance is due in full 7 days before the event. I will send you an invoice 14 days before and payment details will be included. Payment can be made via Paypal, BACS or through my website or you can pop into the cabin at White Elm Garden Centre and pay by card.
What if I have to cancel my booking?
If you have to cancel then I require 7 days notice. Any money paid will be refunded (minus the £30 non-returnable deposit). A cancellation within 7 days will result in the full amount being payable.
If the cancellation is due to illness or an emergency or one of those unavoidable events life throws at us sometimes, I will do my best to re-book another date for you.
What if my party is cancelled by Ciao Bambino?
If I have to cancel I will give you as much notice as I possibly can. In all cases, you will receive a full refund of all money paid so far including your £30 deposit. Wherever possible I will offer an alternative date.
