For all the parties we offer we can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests in one sitting. We require a minimum of 6 guests to run any party. An ideal number of parties guests is 10, this is so that Emily can provide lavish amounts of help and support to all guests involved. If you wanted to invite more than 12 guests, we can accommodate this but over two floral sittings or potentially by bringing in another florist to assist.
Due to the use of sharp implements all guests need to be over the age of 5 years. Any 5-8 year olds need additional adult supervision (4 under 8’s:1 Adult) any over 8 year olds can create florals unaccompanied.
Tools and flowers
Persephone Violet LTD will provide all tools required to create the beautiful designs at your party. These are loaned to you for the duration of the party. All breakages and losses will need to be paid for. The tools are presented in pretty jar with a luggage label for each party guest. We also provide Persephone Violet Flower School aprons to protect party clothing.
All flowers are provided for the party and will be of a seasonal nature. If you have a particular flower you’d like to use or learn about during your party, please do let us know (this may be subject to an additional charge). Any flowers of a dangerous nature such as roses (due to the thorns) will be prepared in a way to minimise risk (e.g. the thorns will be removed).
A non-refundable booking fee of £50.00 is required to secure your booking and is required along with the completed booking form and signed terms and conditions. The full balance will be required no less than two weeks prior to the event. We are happy to provide a payment plan over a number of months leading up to your party if required. Please contact us about this option.
Payment is accepted by credit or debit card; BACS transfer or PayPal. By making the £50.00 booking fee payment you are legally bound to abide by our set out terms and conditions.
Dates and availability
Persephone Violet can run parties in the evenings or at the weekend. We are flexible and try to accommodate the needs of all our customers. Please enquire to find out if we have availability for your date.
If for whatever reason you need to cancel your party, please let us know asap. 5 days or more notice is required for cancellations. Unfortunately, if less than 5 days’ notice is given full payment will be required.
If you need to rearrange dates again, please let us know in plenty of time so we can try and accommodate this.
Flowers – shades, varieties and availability
Flowers and foliage’s are living, which means due to natural variation sometimes the flowers ordered can be of a slightly different colour or shade to what was originally thought (this is a very rare occurrence). Due to more advanced growing techniques in recent years we have been able to reduce this to a minimum. When in the situation that some of your chosen flowers cannot be sourced we will provide close alternatives which we will ensure you are happy with before proceeding.
Persephone Violet also accepts no responsibility for any allergic reactions caused by flowers provided. We will of course help to advise on floral materials that will reduce the affects of hay fever due to pollen. If you have any worries or queries do let us know and we will be happy to assist.
