Although we love the look of real candlelight, not all of our candle holders are wax friendly.
Real flame candles are NOT permitted in terrariums, hurricanes, lanterns, glass cylinder holders, or birch log holders, unless specifically noted in the item description. Non-flame items returned with wax residue will be considered damaged.
Flameless candles are provided for your convenience with most of our holders.
Real flame tealights or glass cup votives may be used in votive holders.
Real flame candles are permitted in brass and glass taper candle holders. We highly recommend dripless taper candles, as you are subject to cleaning fees.
Tealights, glass cup votives, and dripless tapers can be provided for an additional fee.
Caring For Items
For outdoor events, we suggest having an alternate plan in case of inclement weather.
All items must be protected from weather and may not be left outdoors overnight.
All inventory must returned free of wax residue including but not limited to candlesticks, lanterns, votives, and table tops. We highly recommend dripless or flameless candles to avoid wax cleaning fees.
China, glassware, flatware, and serving pieces should be rinsed only to avoid damage caused by food acidity.
Please do not put these items in a dishwasher. We will clean them upon return.
Security Deposit & Damages Policy
We understand that accidents happen and will work with you to resolve any issues as quickly as possible. Since many of our items are irreplaceable, we require a 25% refundable security deposit 14 days prior to your event. If all items are returned without damage, the security deposit will be refunded within 7 days. Customers are responsible for the repair/replacement costs of items damaged, lost, or stolen. Burns, stains, wax, and other damages will be assessed and charged accordingly. Damages and loss exceeding the deposit will be billed to you at a rate of 5 times the rental fee.
Changes & Cancellation Policy
Changes may be made to your order up to 14 days prior to event based on availability.
We allow cancellations up to 30 days prior to your event. Should you choose to cancel before this time, you will not be charged the remaining balance. Events cancelled with less than 30 days notice will be charged in full.
Please note that the 50% initial payment (retainer) is non-refundable.
We do not issue refunds for inclement weather. Please have an alternate plan in place, as we reserve the right to refuse to release items for outdoor events.
