A minimum 50% Deposit is required 21 days prior to the event. The balance is due the day of the event prior to the start time. Due to the fact that we work with live plants, if for any reason, the event must be rescheduled or cancelled less than 14 days before the event date, the 50% deposit is not refundable. If the event is postponed, Garden a la Carte will do everything possible to apply the 50% deposit to the new rescheduled event date. If the deposit is not made on time, the event will be cancelled. Please provide your tax exemption certificate.
*Garden a la Carte does not provide food or drink and is not liable for accidents or injuries before, during, or after the event.
