Larmesa Lees is the owner and Director of An Enchanted Party. “I believe that by harnessing a child’s natural instinct to explore and by embracing creativity and imagination a child may be open to all possibility, perhaps the most valuable gift we parents can give our children”.
Larmesa creates all the shows which have been fine-tuned over 15 years to offer a truly magical and enchanting experience for all little people. “We only have highly skilled performers with a natural rapport and passion for entertaining children and their precious imaginations, thus guaranteeing a show full of delightful, captivating fun for each and every very special event”.

"A huge thank you to you and your team who all were absolute professionals throughout the whole event. I had so many people tell me how wonderful the fairies and pirates were and how fantastic the stage show was. I was just so impressed with all your staff and their attitudes. The event is primarily a success due to them creating magic with the children and they make it look easy when it most certainly is not.
Also on a personal level thanks for being so supportive and helping me out during my first festival, it was lovely to work with you and I look forward to many more successful events! Also if there is any feedback from yourself or your entertainers on how the event could be improved please let me know, I think we get better every year by learning as we go"

We are delighted to be a part of your special day!
Home Party: If you plan to have your party at home we will make do with any space you have available, we have entertained in lounges, bedrooms, decks, gardens any space is fine for us.
Venue: If you plan to have your party at a venue we recommend you book early as they can book up well in advance.
You will know best what your birthday child can manage.
Once you have decided on your party date and time you can then book your entertainment, please browse our website and like us on facebook for inspiration.
You may choose a one or two hour entertainment option and you may like to combine entertainers for double the fun and games.
Please note if you are having over 18 children we do recommend having two entertainers. One entertainer will do their best but may need an adult on hand.
Try to send out your invitations a minimum of two weeks prior to your party date, three weeks is ideal. Please contact us so we may email you our gorgeous hand crafted invitations to print, we have one for every theme.
Please feel free to discuss your party requirements as we provide everything you will need to take the stress out of your special day from table and chairs, cakes, decorations, goodie bags, bubble machine or the entire party package. View our party extras.
We advise to book your entertainer a minimum of half an hour after the children arrive so they can all be there, hand over presents and settle in.
If you have booked the two hour entertainment package you may like our entertainer to meet and greet the children before they start their show.
Keep in mind meal times when planning your party, if the children arrive right on a meal time they may need to eat before the entertainment. If the entertainment is close to a meal time you may like to have a bowl of popcorn, or something to hand around during the show, please keep this simple so as not to distract the children too much.
We find having the entertainment before the food means you can prepare the party food so when the entertainer has finished their show the children can go straight onto the food. Please be mindful if the table is close by the show the children will be distracted if food comes out before the show has ended.
If you have booked the two hour entertainment package you may like our entertainer to mingle with the children while they eat, cut the cake and have photos.
It’s nice to have a quiet space for the entertainment so the children can easily concentrate without parents chatting close by. If the parents do happen to be close by please have them quieten down when the show is underway.
Please have a cd player or iPod docking station handy, our entertainers provide their own music.
If you are booking a Face Painter with the Entertainer they can easily paint faces while the show is underway so having them overlap is not a problem but you may wish to have one after the other.
If you book a Balloon Twister with the Entertainer we recommend having them one after the other so that the children get the most from each experience.
Try not to make too much fuss about the party to your child leading up to their day; this will help them stay relaxed.
Just before the entertainers arrival it is helpful for a parent to gather the children together, settle them down and chat to them about appropriate behaviour when a special guests is coming to the house.
Our entertainer will phone you the Monday before your party to confirm your details, you may discuss anything you would like them to be aware of and there is the option of your entertainer chatting to the birthday child which may help settle their nerves.
We will email you a magical spell to print out and do with your birthday child the night before their party; this will create the magic leading up to their enchanting Enchanted Party experience!
Have a lovely day!
