What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be made at least 2 days prior to the party to warrant a full refund. No refunds are issued for cancellations less than 48 hours prior to the class or after the class begins.Stores may cancel parties in emergency situations, such as during severe storms or power outages. They may also need to cancel a party if a party facilitator becomes unavailable. The party can be rescheduled. If the customer does not want to reschedule, a refund will be issued. If this occurs when a party is in session, then a party can be rescheduled for a time specific to the crafting so the children can complete their projects.
