What about Children’s or Family Parties?

Although most of our regularly scheduled events require participants to be at least 19 years of age, when scheduling a private party, we only suggest participants are ages 6 and older.  If you have a teen who’s an aspiring artist, contact us to see which party option is the best fit for them.  We currently offer Acrylic Painting experiences only for Children’s parties.  If you have a creative child who love to paint, make their birthday extra special by booking a Create over Cupcakes party!

What Venues Are Available for Private Parties?

Currently, our available venues in our base cities include those listed here with other venues being added all the time.  Create over Cocktails can also come to you either at the venue of your choice or your home!  If you supply the tables and chairs, we will provide all necessary supplies for creation.

How Many Guests Can Be Accommodated?

Subject to the chosen creation, parties within 40km of of our base cities will be priced at cost to cover up to 10 people.  Each additional guest above this minimum will be priced at the individual cost (e.g. $41 tax included per person for regular painting parties).  The maximum occupancy is 60 people without advanced notice and dependent upon venue occupancy.  An initial, nonrefundable $200 deposit is required upon reservation.  Outside of the 40km range from our base cities, parties will be priced at cost to cover up to 20 people, based on the chosen creation.  Each additional guest above this minimum will again be priced at the individual cost.  An initial, nonrefundable $400 deposit is required upon reservation if your event location is outside the 40km limit and a traveling fee may be added as well.  Prices may vary slightly for certain experiences.

What Will Be Provided?

Create over Cocktails will provide the arts & crafts supplies necessary for whatever creation you choose.  Depending on your chosen venue, you are welcome to bring your own beverages and food or have your event catered by a local restaurant.  If booked for most of our venues, menus will be available. You are also welcome to bring decorations for your event!

Can I bring outside food and drinks into the venue?

Typically, as this is against food code regulations, the answer is no.  However, you are free to contact the venue and make the special request.  We partner with venues who are willing to offer their space at no extra charge to guests in exchange for their patronage.  We do, however, partner with some venues who serve beverages only and who welcome outside food and/or catering.

When and How Can I Pay the Deposit?

The nonrefundable deposit is required upon reservation to book the day and time with us and the venue space (if applicable).  Deposits can be paid directly through invoicing via credit card, or by e-transfer or cash.

When and How Can I Pay the Balance?

The balance for the original stated number of estimated guests must be paid within 7 days of your event.  By that time, supplies for at least that number of guests have been purchased, the artist has been hired, and the venue and ourselves have dedicated the chosen day, time, and space to your party, making it difficult to rebook.  If there are additional guests (within reason) at the event, the difference may be paid at that time.  Please collect the balance due for any additional guests (individual payments will not be accepted) and pay the artist in full BEFORE the event begins.  We cannot refund for any “no-shows.”  The balance can be paid directly through invoicing via credit card, or by e-transfer or cash.

What If I Need To Reschedule My Party?

If you must reschedule your private party for any reason, we must receive your request 7 days or more before your event was originally scheduled to take place.  You may only reschedule a private party once.  If you reschedule a second time, it will be considered a cancellation and a new non-refundable deposit will be charged to book the new requested date.  If cancelled within 7 days of your event you will still be charged the remaining balance in full.

What If I Need To Cancel My Party?

Initial private party deposits are strictly non-refundable. If you must cancel your private party for any reason, you will not be charged the remaining balance so long as we receive your cancellation request 7 days or more before your event is scheduled. If you cancel within 7 days of your event you will still be charged the remaining balance in full.  Cancellations can be made via email or by calling 506.607.1141.  Create over Cocktails reserves the right to cancel an event due to rare, unforeseen circumstances, and in such cases notification will be sent at least 4 hours prior to the event and you will have the option to reschedule or receive a full refund.

Once again, initial deposits will be processed at the time parties are booked and are NON-REFUNDABLE. The remaining amount for the booking will be due within 7 days of your event.
