What is the recommended age for a children's party?
Our parties are suited to children ages 4 upwards. Younger children may find the Chocolate Pizza making more suitable. Each package on our website has a recommended age.
Please visit our party packages page.
What do we need to provide?
All we require is a table setting of space per person and a small area for the chocolatier to work from that is visible to the guests.
We may require the use of a microwave and a small space in a fridge/freezer, a standard drawer or shelf is enough (we can place moulds on top of things).
AT A VENUE
We may require access to a fridge or freezer. A microwave can be provided by the chocolatier.
AT THE CHOCOLATE ROOM
Is it messy?
The parties are surprisingly not messy. But feel free to wear aprons to get everyone in the mood, however this is not essential. Table clothes are not essential either, depending on the work surface. Any chocolate spillages set very quickly and can be easy scraped off easily or wiped away effortlessly with a hot cloth.
Is there a maximum number?
THE CHOCOLATE ROOM
Maximum number 20 per session. We think 10-15 children is a nice number but we can fit 20 max.
The maximum number is subject to the space available. We can provide more chocolatiers according to numbers.
