Information on Creative Celebrations

1. How long has Creative Celebrations been in business?  Creative Celebrations has been in business since 2001.  

2. Who is Creative Celebrations?  Creative Celebrations was founded by Amy and Neil Rubenstein in 2001.  Amy has a strong background in early childhood and theater.  Creative Celebrations was born when she decided to use these skills (and her creativity) to create unique, interactive theme parties for children. 

3. What types of services do you provide?  Creative Celebrations can do everything from entertaining at you party to helping you coordinate a wedding or Bar/Bat Mitzvah.  We offer custom goodie bags based on our theme parties as well as add-on such as aprons and lab coats for some our of messier or science related parties.  We also offer many of your favorite costume characters that can be added on to any party or booked for a stand alone appearance. 

4. Are there any articles or write-ups that I read about Creative Celebrations?  Creative Celebrations has been interviewed for a number of articles of the years.  One article that is still readily available was published in Special Events Magazine.  Another one was recently in ChicagoParent Magazine.

5. What organizations are you a member of?  Creative Celebrations is a member of NAEYC, Art of Barter, IMS Barter, and Chicagofun.com.  We constantly evaluate other organizations to determine if we should join.

 

 

 

1. What is the average cost of a party?  Our parties range in price from $200 to $300 depending on the theme you choose.  However, if you add goodie bags, a costume character, or additional party time the price can increase. 

2. What is the average length of a party?  A standard party is 1 to 1.5 hours.  However we can entertain for as long as you would like. 

3. What days of the week to you offer entertainment?  We can entertain any day of the week.

4. Can I purchase party supplies from you?  Yes, we sell party supplies through our partnerships with other great party supplies websites.  Feel free to visit our Party Store, Piñatas.com, BirthdayExpress, Birthday in a Box, or The Party Works for all you party supplies needs.  

5. Do you only entertain at children's parties?  No, we have a number of theme parties that are perfect for adult parties, corporate events, holiday parties, and team outings.  We can also provide Caricature artists, impersonators, magicians (for adults and children), Casino nights, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

6. What do your goodie bags include?  We make goodie bags for our various theme parties as well as custom ones.  Each goodie bag includes 6-8 items for $6.50 per bag.  We do include a little candy but most of the items are not candy.

7. Do you offer costume characters?  Yes, we offer many of your favorite costume characters.  We are adding new characters all the time.  Characters can be booked as a stand alone appearance or added on to any of our theme parties. 

8. Can I rent inflatables, carnival games, etc. from you?  Yes, Creative Celebrations can help you with any of your party needs whether it is inflatables, carnival games, fun foods, or just about anything else. 

9. How far in advance do I need to book an event?  We usually ask for at least 2 weeks. But we do our best to try to accommodate everyone who calls.  However, we often book up to 6 months in advance, so this is not always possible.  Our recommendation would be to call as soon as you start thinking about your birthday party or event.  

10. What if I need to cancel or postpone a party that is already booked?  If an event needs to be postponed due to an emergency we will do our best to accommodate you.  However, if an event has to be canceled, typically the remaining balance is due to Creative Celebrations.  If the event is cancelled on the day of the event, there is also a cancellation fee in addition to the remaining balance. 

11. What are your payment terms?  We typically require a credit card deposit upfront before sending out a contract.  We ask that you send the contract back with an additional deposit.  The remaining balance is due the day of the event.  Payment terms will be different for full service events such as weddings or Bat/Bat Mitzvahs. 

12. Do you have a location where I can have my party?  We do not have a location at this time to host parties.  We can entertain at your house, a local park district, restaurant, or any where else you can rent a room. 

13. Can you provide references?  Absolutely.  Upon request, we can provide references.  Please check out our testimonials as well.

14. How much time do you need to set-up for a party?  It varies per party.  But we try to get to every party at least a half hour before the party begins.  This is not always possible due to traffic, weather conditions, and other unforeseen circumstances

15. Have you ever canceled a party or event on a client?    NEVER.  Once you book a party or event with Creative Celebrations, we guarantee that we will be there to entertain at your event.  We never have and never will cancel on a client. 

16. Who leads the parties?  Either Amy (Creative Celebrations’ founder) and/or her husband Neil are at every party.  One or both of them lead every single party. 

17. Do you offer full service party planning?  Yes, we do.  Creative Celebrations can help you coordinate any type of event from a wedding to a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or anything in between. 

18. How far will you travel for a party?  We will travel to almost any suburb of Chicago as well as some areas of Wisconsin and Indiana.  A good rule of thumb is if it is more than 1:15 from the 60090 zip code, we may not travel there.  Call us as on any given day we may be willing to travel a little further.  Also note that any city more than 15 miles from 60090 may incur a travel fee.

19. What if I don't see a theme that I feel my child will like?  We have over 40 different themes to choose from, but if you don’t see something, please give us a call.  We create custom parties all the time.
