Frequently asked questions

Is there a minimum order amount?

Nope, order as much or as little as you want or need.

Can I reserve items for an upcoming event?

Our inventory is unique. Many items are one-of-a-kind. Unfortunately we cannot hold items for upcoming events. If you want something and it looks unusual, we suggest you order it when you see it on the site. If you want something more generic, we cycle through use inventory pretty frequently, so it’s possible we’ll have what you’re looking for in stock at a later date if you’re not ready to purchase it now.

How far will you ship items?

We ship anywhere in the continental US.

Do you deliver?

Yes, we offer a delivery option for large items that cannot be shipped for customers located within 100 miles of Washington DC for an additional charge. Prices for delivery start at $150 and go up based on mileage. Certain large items must be delivered and therefore are only available to customers within 100 miles of Washington DC.

I’m throwing a party. Which areas do you suggest I consider for decor enhancements?

  • Welcome table/entrance area

  • Gift table

  • Bar area

  • Bridal party table and/or sweetheart table

  • Guest tables

  • Buffet table

  • Dessert table

  • Photobooth

  • Restrooms

  • Wedding canopy and ceremony area

Is it possible to see the items in person before I place an order?

Yes, especially if you are located in or around Washington DC. Contact us at to schedule an appointment or give us a call at 202.836.2064. Inventory visits are by appointment only.

I have an idea of what I want, but I’m not sure which items will go well together or how many I’ll need. Can you help?

We’d love to help. We are available for free 20-minute phone consults to answer questions like this. Shoot us an email at to schedule your call.

I’m looking for a particular item but I don’t see it in your inventory. Can you help me find it?

Yes! We love to source new items, especially when we know they are already loved, even before we find them. If you’re interested in something that you can’t find on our website, send us an email at to discuss what you’re looking for.

In addition to decor for my event, I’m looking for tables, chairs, linens, glassware, lounge seating, tents, string lights, etc. Do you have these items?

No. We focus on decor elements only, but we have great friendors. If you need help figuring out where to find what you’re looking for and we don’t carry it, we’re happy to give you a referral. Send us an email at

For items where there are many (like bottles and buckets), can I choose the ones I want individually?

We will do our best to get you exactly what you want! If you’re ordering more than one item which are similar but not exactly the same, add a special request in the notes when you check out, and we will do our best to honor it. If you do not make a special request, and you order multiples, we’ll provide a curated mixture that is interesting and works together. We cannot guarantee special requests but we can guarantee the mix will look great!

Items that are big and/or unique are all listed individually, allowing you to choose the specific one you want.

Will you also provide flowers for my bottles, vases, wooden boxes, crates, etc. and help styling my event?

No. You can easily choose the flowers yourself by visiting any wholesale or retail florist or rely on your party or venue planner to make those choices. We recommend choosing local farms or florists who work with local blooms as a more sustainable option.

Do you charge sales tax?

We collect 7% sales tax for all customers residing in the State of Virginia.

Wow. This is a lot. Can I really do it myself?

Absolutely! Remember this is your event/wedding and/or decorating project and there is no right way to do it - only the way that feels right to you. We make this possible by curating the unique items you’ll want or need, allowing you to express your vibe fully.
