Thank you for considering Hummingbird Candle Co for your Celebration! We would love to Get Lit with your group! Here are all the important details about our Private Events!
Private Events are held in store on Tuesdays and Wednesdays ONLY. Our shop is closed those days and you'll have the entire space just for you and your guests. If those days of the week don't work NO Worries you can sign up for a public event here.
We require a 10 person minimum to book a Private Event.
We have a max of 16 seated attendees that we can accommodate per hour of your event to insure the safety of your guests and our staff.
We can absolutely accommodate larger groups; we just tweak the experience layout and create groups that will go through the experience in shifts!
ie. If you have a total headcount of 20 we could have 10 of your guests go through the experience and celebrate with you at 11:30am and the second half go through the experience and celebrate with you at 1pm. This keeps everyone safe and follows NC COVID guidelines, gives us time to sanitize in between groups, while ensuring you get to spend time with both groups! It's like having Events in ONE! We would just need a final headcount a week prior to ensure adequate staffing and supplies.
Prices include: exploring our candle 30+ scent candle library, everyone will pour their own custom (1) 9oz coconut wax candle with an 80hr burn time per guest, Hummingbird reserved for 120 minutes, Dedicated Hummingbird Chandler to guide your groups through their experience, BYOB + BYOFood – we cleanup and all participants receive 10% off all retail products during the event. You will also have access to the shop 30 minutes prior to the event for set up of food, libations, and decorating.
Private Event Pricing: $47.20 + tax per person gratuity included.
One Payment: If you are covering the cost for your guests we are happy to send over an invoice. We are also happy to split the total payment into 3 equal payments so you can pay over time. A $200 non-refundable deposit is required and the remaining balance due one week prior to your event.
Individual Payments: If your guests are paying individually we will create an event link and you're welcome to direct your group to purchase their tickets individually online! Please note, we do charge by anticipated RSVP, not by attendance. A $200 refundable deposit is required and once all guests have purchased their tickets we will refund you the full $200 deposit. If you don't reach your threshold we will deduct the ticket fee of $47.20 per person for each empty seat. And refund any remaining funds. ie. If 17 of your guests purchase their tickets but your reservation is for 20 we would deduct $94.40 +tax from your $200 deposit and you would receive back $101 of your deposit back on the card you used to reserve the event. It takes 2-7 days for refunded deposits to show up in your account!
