Palette Posse Paint Parties provides everything required, except for tables and chairs. This includes tablecloths, aprons, cups for water, paper towel and all materials, paints and accessories specific to each project. (We have tables and chairs available to rent for a small fee, if required). All of our equipment is either one time use or cleaned/sanitized between parties and events.
Palette Posse Paint Parties does all set up and clean up and we require time outside of the party time for same. We typically ask to arrive 20-30 minutes prior to start time for set up.
Once a date is booked for your party, we will prepare an Agreement for review and signature. Once the Agreement has been signed and returned, your date will be secured.
We require a minimum of 5 painters for a private in home adult party, but we have no maximum number of guests. As long as you have the room, the more the merrier!
For private in-home parties booked with 10 or more guests, the host(ess) paints free!
Our paintings range in price, typically between $35-$60 per guest, dependent on medium used, size and complexity. Some larger or specialized projects may cost more.
Discounts may be offered for large corporate events and fundraisers.
For parties within the TriCities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody) we require a minimum of 8 children OR for parties with less than 8, a flat rate of $160 is charged. Where the minimum number of guests is reached, children’s paintings are charged at $20 per guest.
For parties outside of the TriCities (but still in the Lower Mainland), the above rules apply and a travel fee of $20-$30 is required. For parties of 10 children or more, we may waive the travel fee.
As our paintings and projects are generally created on custom cut wood or specially prepared materials, we require pre-payment for all guests of private parties at least one week in advance of the party date. For certain projects, payment may be required two weeks in advance. For large or corporate parties, a deposit may be required.
Payments are requested by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. If credit card payments are required, we can accept same via PayPal; however, there may be an additional charge.
In some cases a host/hostess may wish to pay Palette Posse for all guests up front and collect cash from their guests at the event.
An Invoice and/or Receipt can be provided upon request.
We understand that despite best intentions, unforeseen events could possibly affect the host’s ability to host a pre-planned party. If you need to cancel or reschedule your party, we ask that you let us know as soon as possible and no later than one week prior to your party date. For adult events, if specific guests that have already paid become unavailable to attend, we will refund their payment if the cancellation is made prior to the one-week deadline. If a guest cancels after this date or does not attend on the date of the party, refunds will not be offered, however, the guest can “sell” their spot to someone else.
If a party needs to be cancelled after our one-week cancellation deadline due to illness or emergency, we will hold your payment and reschedule your event to a later date.
If a party needs to be cancelled due to instructor illness or emergency, we will, if possible, have the party proceed with one Instructor. If this is not possible, we will have to either arrange for the party to be switched to Take Home Kits, or we will have to cancel or reschedule. In case of cancellation due to illness or emergency on our part, a refund will be issued, if other arrangements cannot be made.
Palette Posse Paint Parties takes all necessary precautions to avoid mess; however, we cannot be responsible for any paint spills. We use Acrylic paint, which can be wiped or scraped off hardwood, laminate etc.; however, we recommend painting where there is no carpet. We provide tablecloths to cover your table and aprons for all painters, which we recommend all painters wear as Acrylic paint will stain clothes.
For adult parties or events, Palette Posse Paint Parties is not liable for the behaviour or safety of any guests at private or corporate parties where liquor or other substances are consumed.
We are accepting bookings for parties, fundraisers and events in 2024.
