DIY Home Parties
The rustic farmhouse look is everywhere you look these days, it seems, thanks to TV shows like Fixer Upper (who doesn't love Chip and Jo?). We may not be able to help you transform your house, but we can help add to your decor! We can teach you how to create your very own custom sign! All you need are your friends, some food and drinks and the space! We take care of the rest by bringing the boards, paint, stencils, table covers and more to YOU. You can even wear your PJ's! We won't judge! This is perfect for girl's night in, baby or wedding showers, church groups, date nights, Mommy & Me's, Girl Scout troops, you name it! The possibilities are endless, and we'd love to hear from you with your ideas! We offer a variety of sizes including 1'x2', 18"x18", 1'x4', and 18”x36”,' as well as our serving tray designs of the 17" round tray and the rectangle pallet-style tray. Add handles to spruce it up!
How it Works...
Our process is simple. Once your party date is set, your name will be added to the designs page as the hostess. Invite your friends and send them to our website so they can choose their own sign design from our (growing!) list. Registration cut-off is one week prior to your party to allow time for us to cut and prep the wood, and cut all of the stencils. There is a $10 late fee for any registrations after that date. At your party, we'll have a large array of paint and stain colors set up, as well as the tools needed if you want to make your sign distressed. We will walk you through the process, step-by-step, and will be right there to help you the entire way should you need us!
Things to Know!
Here's what you need to know to host a party - For parties within Montgomery County, there is a minimum of 6 people or signs. For any outside Montgomery County, the minimum is 10 people or signs and they are subject to a mileage fee. That fee is based on the current state charge. What we typically do is divide that charge up among the guests, which "usually" comes out to $5 per person or less, and it's added to the cost of the sign. The Rustic Peach provides all of the supplies for the signs, we just ask that you have enough tables and chairs for your guests (plus the space!).
You do NOT have to be crafty to make your own sign with us! Every single party, there is always someone that says "I'm not crafty, I hope I don't mess this up", and by the end of the party, they are so pleased with their sign because it ends up looking fantastic! So, don't be afraid of making a sign. We've messed up more times than we can count, and if you think you've messed up, we'll know how to fix it!
While rustic is what we do, you don't have to make your sign like that. If you like the clean lines and perfect paint, make it that way! If rustic is what you're going for, we have the tools to help you distress your board and give it that worn and aged look that is so popular.
Our process is typically pretty clean (your hands will get dirty) and we do provide aprons to help protect your clothes, however, accidents can happen. The paint doesn't wash out of clothing, and we'd hate for your outfit to be ruined. So, don't wear fancy clothes!
Don't forget to HAVE FUN! This is the time to get creative. Don't like the color you picked? Repaint it. Mix colors if we don't have what you want. Give your words the ombre look. There is no right or wrong!! It's all about what look YOU are going for!
