Host A Party!
For private parties, we require a minimum of 10 people (not including the host). You will get a standard sized sign free. If you have more than 15 people you can opt to get a free specialty sized sign instead. If you do not have the minimum amount of people we will need to cancel your party or reschedule. Please be aware of our refund/cancellation policy for your attendees.
The price of the class includes prepped wood (cut, sanded and stained) ready to use stencils, paintbrushes/sponges, many paint colors, etc. Prices start at $45.
Ideally, parties should be booked 4 weeks in advance (no less than 21 days). I create a private party listing on my website that your attendees will purchase beforehand. Everyone must be paid and registered by the given deadline. We do not accept late registrations. I will also create a Facebook event so you can invite friends and I can help with questions. Parties can be held in our shop's party room (Muscatine, IA) your home or if you would rather you could ask a restaurant if you could rent their meeting/party room to hold a party.
If we are traveling to your party then hostesses are responsible for providing tables, chair, and tablecloths to protect tables from damage. I will need a table or counter space for paint and an outlet to plug a hair dryer into if we need to speed drying times along. If you are having a party in our shop's party room you do not have to worry about any of this.
Hostesses are responsible for providing any beverages and snacks for their attendees.
There is a non-refundable $30 booking fee (plus tax). This fee also secures the date of your party. Your party link will not be started until this payment is received.
Please read our FAQ 's for more information.
You will find cancellation/refund info here. I would really like you to be aware of all terms/conditions/policies before you book. :)
