Can I drop off my decorations earlier?
This is handled on a case by case basis. We can't guarantee that we'll have space available to store items because we may have events booked however, we prefer that guests bring in larger items such as centerpieces, posters, and backdrops a day or two before the event. That way, our staff can set them up before you arrive, and you do not need to worry about them. On the week of the party, your event coordinator will reach out to you and send you a link to schedule your drop-off time.

5 -12 receive the most benefit from the party.
