Deposit can be returned the day of your party or put back on the card it came from. Please note that the deposit holds your date for your party. If the minimun number of gustes is not reached (6), the party will be cancelled and the deposit will not be returned. Please understand these parties do take alot of prep behind the scenes. However, your deposit can be used to re-schedule your party if the minimun number of guests is not reached. Hostesses can only re-schedule one time before another deposit is due.
