What if I'm attending a paint & sip and are under 21 or don't drink alcohol?


During our painting classes we offer an assortment of non-alcoholic beverages for guests under 21. You must be 21 or older with valid ID to purchase or receive alcohol. Our paint and sip sessions are recommended for painters over the age of 16. Younger painters may attned, however, please note that our late evening classes tend to be more adult focused. During our princess parties and events we do not typically serve alcohol unless otherwise noted or as requested by the party host for a private party. During events where alcohol is available we will only serve it to guests over 21 and will check all IDs. Non alcoholic beverages will also be available.




What is your cancellation policy?


For public classes and events we require 48 hours notice to reschedule your reservations. No refunds, all sales final. Cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice will be charged a $10 rescheduling fee and will not qualify for refunds. No call/no shows will not be refunded or rescheduled. For private parties and events our parties and events our deposits and retainers are non refundable. In the event that you need to change your party date or time, we will accept reschedules on a case by case basis with advance notice via email only.




What should I wear?


For painting parties, we do provide aprons, however, you shouldn't wear anything that you couldn't live with getting a little paint on. Acrylic paints will not wash out of fabrics once they have dried. For character parties most little ones choose to wear their favorite prince or princess costume or fun outfit! Adults are welcome to wear any level of dress, however, we ask that adults not come in full costumes to avoid any confusion for the kids.

We also have a selection of princess dresses, tiaras, and other fun accessories for purchase in the retail section of our venue!
