Q: How do I book a party?
A: We’re so glad you’re interested in a party at the La Petite Palace! Once you have reviewed our Party Packages and made a package selection, complete a Party Inquiry form to start the process. After receiving your form we will check date availability, answer any questions, and contact you with booking information.
Q: How much is the deposit to book? What is the payment plan?
A: A $100 minimum deposit is required to book a date and time for a party. Deposit payment must be remitted within 24 hours to secure your date and time. The remaining balance is due 7 days prior to the event. For events booked within fourteen (14) days of the event date, an invoice for the full balance will be due to secure the date and time.
Q: Can I have additional entertainment at the La Petite Palace?
A: To protect NOLA Pixie Dust, LLC character integrity, the only character entertainment allowed to be present at La Petite Palace will be characters provided by NOLA Pixie Dust, LLC. NOLA Pixie Dust offers a wide array of character options and we are happy to discuss custom requests. View the available character options HERE.
If a face painter, balloon artist, photo booth photographer, etc. is desired, please contact La Petite Palace prior to booking their services to confirm the appearance.
Q: Am I able to bring my own food? What kind is allowed?
A: Outside food is allowed but MUST fit within the menu criteria of our “A La Carte” catered menu options. Due to the time restraints with keeping the party on schedule, no dishes besides those listed will be accepted into the La Petite Palace. NO food that requires warming devices will be admitted. To keep with the nature of the “Tea Party” theme, only cold hors d’oeuvres will be allowed. If you have a question about a dish you would like to provide, please contact us prior to confirm approval. Please review your terms and conditions for a list of unapproved items.
*If you choose to provide your own catering for the adult guests, you will be responsible for plates, cups, napkins & utensils.
Q: Can I visit the venue to see the facility prior to my party?
A: Absolutely! Please give us a call at 504-457-1608 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment. Venue visits are by appointment only due to scheduling requirements. Appointments can be scheduled before the first and after the last scheduled party of each weekend. In addition, venue visits can be scheduled for select weeknights. We are not able to accommodate visits during and/or between private parties. Our venue is a single party facility and the time directly before/after private parties is used to preserve the magic of a delicately decorated space prepped and ready to entertain the next guests upon arrival. We will not be able to accommodate any walk-in venue visits at the respect and privacy of our guests.
Our glass front doors provide a view of the entire venue space at one glance. Stop by anytime to take a peek inside with no appointment necessary to view the space without a tour! (On special occasions during Holiday/Event preparations our privacy panel curtains may be closed as we work on special projects. If applicable, we intend to only have the curtains closed for a short period of time so that the space can be viewed with/without an appointment.)
