To secure a booking, 50% of total payment is required this will secure the date and time of your event. The remaining balance is to be paid in full three business days prior to event.
All bookings require three days notice for ordering purposes.
Please note that no changes are to be made to the booking within 96 hours of the event. This includes guest numbers, dietaries and decorations/theme.
In the unfortunate event that you need to cancel your event with us on the day or prior to the date of service our refund policy is as follows:
Covid- 19 Update:
We have reviewed our standard cancellation policy and updated it to account for these exceptional circumstances.
We would like to offer all our hosts the options below which are outside of our standard cancellation terms:
· If your event is more than 10 days away at the time of cancellation, you have the option to cancel your current booking date and receive a credit voucher with us for the full amount of your booking allowing you to rebook with Rustics once the situation has improved.
· If your event is 9 days or less away at the time of cancellation and you have concerns, please contact us via email immediately. In many situations we have already begun the planning process of ordering ingredients, placing floristry orders and designing by this time and therefore costs have already been incurred.
If utilising a Covid -19 credit by either rescheduling an event or booking a completely new event occurs within 6months of the cancellation than all pricing will hold. If the booking or rescheduling occurs after the initial 6month cancellation, the event will need to be requoted using Rustic Platters & Events' current pricing.
All rescheduling of events will be based on our availability. If we are unavailable for your new event date, we will continue to hold a credit for you. No refunds will be given for unavailability.
Please note that this policy is only valid for Covid -19 circumstances. All other cancellations will be referred to our original cancellation policy.
Loss, damage or breakage of decorations, props, pallet tables, rugs, glasses, dried flower arrangements, platters and any other rustic items by event hosts or guests of the event will result in full cost of purchasing a replacement. In the case of bad weather it is the hosts responsibility to ensure all hired items are removed from the elements and secured in a safe, dry area until collection from us.
Please note: Flowers are included in your Platter, Grazing table & Picnic packages. You are welcome to keep all fresh flowers used for your event, however dried floral arrangements and vases must be returned to us in same working order.
Any consumption of platters, picnic boxes or grazing tables after a 2.5 hour set up period is done at your own risk and Rustic Platters & Events will not be responsible nor liable for any results that may occur. Please note we encourage all summer grazing to be inside in the cool and away from flies. Our grazing tables must be set up in the shade and away from direct sunlight if outside.
Unfortunately we do not offer nut free grazing- our commercial kitchen is not a nut free zone and all food should be consumed at your own risk.
Upon booking with us you adhere to our very reasonable terms and conditions.
