Monroe Street Movement Space Birthday Party Checklist

Thank you for choosing the Movement Space for your celebration.
We have compiled some helpful guidelines and agreements for your birthday party.

After reading the following, feel free to contact us with any remaining questions.

  • Two weeks prior to your party we will contact you to confirm your contract details and to schedule a time and day for you to deliver your party goods.

  • Your delivered items can include all paper goods, utensils, cups, plates, party favors, drinks, chips, crackers and any other non-perishable foods. Also include containers for left over food.

  • You will need 5 rectangular table clothes for parties of 15 participating children and 6 table clothes for parties of 25 participating children. {paper or plastic table clothes--standard banquet size--54"x 96"}

  • On the day of your party bring any fresh food items and your cake with you at party time. 
    If you have an ice cream cake the dimensions of our freezer are 22"wide x 16"deep

  • The Movement Space is a shoe free environment.  It is a good idea to let your guests know this in advance.  Shoes are allowed in the lobby only.

  • Party family should arrive no earlier that 15 minutes before party start time. Party guests may not enter until party start time. This will ensure our party staff enough time to set-up and prepare all activities. There is a 15 minute grace time at the end of the party for party family and guests to leave. After 15 minutes there will be a rental fees of $100 per half hour. 

  • We will hang signs downstairs and at the elevator to help direct your guests to the Movement Space. 

  • Please note: From time to time the elevator is out of service.  We cannot always guarantee it will be running.  In this case we will make sure guests are greeted downstairs and guided up.  At the end of your party our staff will help carry your party gifts and extras down.

  • If you are ordering pizza or any other hot food have it delivered 45 minutes after your party starts.  We recommend that with pizza some of the pies are cut into "child sized" slices.  We will typically  break for a snack and drink time one hour into the party.

  • The Movement Space party limit is 85 people.  There cannot be more than 25 participating children attending the birthday party. This count does not include babies that are held by an adult.  Any child that is crawling/walking is considered in this 25 child count. We will do a final headcount during your party and if there are any additional children past your booking contract there will be an extra change of $100-$300. depending how many extra guests are present.

  • Please keep in mind when sending your invitations that our occupancy load is 85 people.  On the day of your party if your guest count reaches 85, we will be forced to send anyone past that number away.

  • All children attending the party must have an adult present who is responsible for that child. This does not have to be a parent but must be someone who can contact the child's parents if an emergency arises.  The party family will be responsible for any children left without a supervising adult and must have emergency contact numbers with them for each child.

  • Juice boxes for the children make serving more efficient than pouring drinks into cups. 
    Cupcakes can be used in place of a large cake if preferred.

  • You do not need to provide any decorations.  The Movement Space is a colorful, festive and cheerful environment.

  • Most importantly we ask that you think of a theme your child would like his/her party to be based around. 
    For example: Prince/Princess, Superheroes, Butterflies, Sports, Cars, Dinosaurs, or a favorite movie.
    We will design the activity/adventure around this theme to make a unique and memorable experience for your child.

  • The approximate timing of party activities will be as follows:

    • 10-15 minutes: Arrival and Greeting of Guests

    • 40-45 minutes: Guided Activities/Adventure led by Party Staff

    • 15-20 minutes: Snack/Food

    • 30-40 minutes: Activities/Adventure led by Party Staff

    • 15-20 minutes: Happy Birthday Gathering & Cake

  • The remaining balance of your party fee will be due on the Friday before your party. 
    We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
