OUR PROCESS

Party planning can be stressful – OUTSIDE the BOX’s goal is to alleviate some of the stress and make the process fun, exciting, and affordable

INITIAL CONSULT

OUTSIDE the BOX provides every client with an in-person (when possible), individualized initial consult allowing us to:
  • gain a comprehensive understanding of the client’s vision for the event; 
  • discuss the menu of services OUTSIDE the BOX offers;
  • present an array of samples to prompt ideas and hone in on styles, colors, etc.; and 
  • set the overall tone for the project. 

INITIAL CONSULT FEE

There is a $100 non-refundable fee for an initial consult which is due at the time of the consult

PROJECT ESTIMATES

Using the information gathered during the initial consult, OUTSIDE the BOX will prepare an estimate. OUTSIDE the BOX will submit the estimate to the client for approval. Once the estimate has been approved, the client will be required make a deposit of half of the estimated cost.
