Frequently Asked Questions

What if my guest count is not shown?
Because of the nature of our business, we must set guest counts in services of 8. Each cart serves 8 to 16 guests. We suggest you invite more friends if you are a little under. The more the merrier, after all!

What if my guests or I have dietary restrictions?
You will be prompted during check out to let us know. We can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy free. All menus are inherently nut-free.

Is there going to be enough food and booze?
We portioned plenty per person, but food service is self-serve. If you have a snack or drinks monster in your mix, you suggest you “plus up” in both categories at check-out to add more. Drinks are measured at four 6oz cocktails per person and two 4.5oz pours of wine per person.

Can I switch out my rentals or décor?
The rules of style are simple and finite, Cher. So, no – you can only change your food and drinks for dietary restrictions and requests for more. You can also add party packs for specialty décor that you can keep which are great for birthdays, showers, and other special occasions.

Are you going to have more themes... I mean, looks?
We intend to launch more looks on the back end of 2021. 

What if I don’t live in NYC?
We currently deliver to the NYC area only, and will be launching to other US cities later in 2021. Sign up for our mailing list and follow us on social and we’ll let you know when we’re there.

Up to when may I change/cancel my order? How?
You may cancel or change your order (subject to availability] up to 8 days prior to your party. Cancellations within the 8-day period will not be refunded.

Can I throw my party outside?
We love a backyard party! Our cart comes on 360-degree rotating wheels with locks so you can set it and go. Think of it like a mini hotel luggage trolley in terms of capability. We can’t help you with the rain though.  

Why am I getting multiple carts?
Our signature cart is designed to scale with the party size--the more guests, the more carts, and thus always the perfect amount of party supplies. Each cart serves up to 16. So, if you are throwing a party for 32, you get two carts. We suggest placing bars around your party place so no one has to wait at a bar for their drink.

The best part – our speakers daisy chain together so you can create surround sound for larger parties!

What is the size of the cart and will it fit into my house?
Each cart is 36” W x 45” H x24” D. If you don’t have room in your party place (home, office, studio, wherever), please don’t place your order. We will not be able to refund customers on event day if the cart doesn’t fit through their door, and in their place.

What if I don’t have an elevator?
The cart is actually designed to break apart and can be carried up stairs by our delivery folks. You will be charged a small fee for this service and it will be shown at check out.

How do I set this thing up?
Upon arrival of the cart there is a quick set-up guide if you’re looking to be done quickly. There is also an e-book with styling recommendations and further information to master the art of hosting.

Is this going to clash with my house or venue?
Our pieces are intuitively designed to fit together and match most spaces. The top is made of Corian quartz, the façade is made of wood with brass details so it can be dressed down or up.  

Thanks for the awesome food,but do I need serving platters?
When we say we thought of everything, you we literally don’t want you to do anything besides pulling things out, heating it and setting it out. Our transport devices are show-ready high-design serving ware. 

Do I need an oven?
All of our food can be served room temp and its dee-lish. However, we do suggest that about 1/3 of your service is heated up--typically at 250 degrees for about 10 mins. It will be labeled for you so it’s clear to see what’s hot and what’s not.

What if I break, forget to re-packor steal something?
Our business is based on being able to rent things again, so it’s a real cost to us. You will be charged a hefty replacement fee for anything we send you that doesn’t get returned to us. So party professionally please.

Where can I buy this stuff?
We have a “shop the look” section coming soon. But we encourage you to check out our partners in the meantime:

Les Filles music
