You want it to be perfect – we do, too. Here are some of the things people often have on their mind before scheduling an event. If something is missing, just ask.

Do you provide alcoholic beverages?

We know wine or other spirit drinks may be a common part of events, which is why table settings include stemware. But we leave this up to you and your guests, mostly because of personal preferences. But also because we don’t want to be part of any morning headaches. 🙂

Can you accommodate parties of 8 or more?

Maybe someday! At this time, we are equipped to host up to 6 guests. This has to do with the quantity of vintage chairs, table size, multi-piece place settings, and other items in our storehouse. Plus, the original intent of hosting such a special gathering is the intimacy, where you can reconnect on a meaningful level.

What happens if it rains?

Wind, rain, or snow…you just never know (in Wisconsin). Due to the length of time to collect and store the vintage items we use, we will not continue the event if we think there is a possibility of those items getting damaged in any way (not to mention you and your guests!). We’ll work with you to reschedule. If you can’t reschedule, we look forward to planning an event for you another time. Your security deposit will be returned to you if we are notified within 24 hours and no expenses have been incurred. Soon we hope to host indoor events at our “soul shed.”

Can you host an event indoors?

At this time, we are not hosting indoor events on location. We promote outdoor settings for the best ambiance to get you in touch with nature and experience something magical – one of the most calming and rejuvenating things you can do. Soon we hope to host indoor events at our “soul shed.”

What should my guests bring?

The goal is for everyone to be completely at ease. There is no need for them to bring anything unless you wish to allow them to bring additional dishes or spirits. We do recommend guests bring a personal sweater or blanket for chilly nights as the sun sets – we’re pretty sure they’ll want to linger. 🙂

What happens if I need to cancel?

If you wish to cancel, your deposit and any other payment will be returned to you in full if we are notified within 24 hours of the event, simply because of a lot of preparation and planning go into each event. Otherwise, the security deposit will be kept for expenses and time incurred.

What else is the security deposit for?

Many hours and visits to shops allow us to have the collections we offer. In the unfortunate event that any of the items we set up become broken or damaged, we will keep the security deposit in order to replace those vintage sets that were found over time.
