"I'm sorry but it's really not fair on other visitors to close the door to the children's room and hold a private picnic birthday party. And it's a lovely cake, but your candles might set off the fire alarms. I'll give you a few minute, but you will need to pack up the food and let other children in."

For some people, no amount of "no food" signs will ever register, as they continue to act as living examples that common sense really isn't that common.
P.S. The building has previously burnt down, so the attendant was, understandably, a bit twitchy about people having lit candles in a room full of dressing up clothes, soft toys and fake plants.
