Adult parties are held on any night of the week (depending on our openings and availability) and are typically held from:

  • 5:00 - 7:00 pm
  • 5:30 - 7:30 pm

If you desire a different time frame, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

  • The adult party fee is $149.00 (for up to 10 guests)  Additional guests are charged a $15.00 per guest party fee. This fee covers the help of two friendly employees for the evening and also includes all of your jewelry labor costs for the evening as well. (Normally labor fees apply, when we attach necklace, bracelets or make earrings). Please let us know if you expect more than 10 guests for your party, so that we can have an extra employee for the evening.
  • Adult parties may serve wine, beverages and cake. If  you wish to serve any additional cold food items there is a $50.00 food fee. Many guests who add the food option enjoy bringing cheese, hors d'oeuvres, sandwiches, veggie trays, etc...anything you'd like to serve at your party. If you are having it catered, we can accept deliveries at any time we are open during the day. Just let us know if we should expect a delivery. Please note that we do not allow hot food or chafing dishes to be served. You can also drop off supplies at our store at any time during the week of your party, to help make the evening of your party go smoothly. If you don't serve food, remember that we have a number of delicious restaurants right near our shop. We highly recommend Del FuegoAppoline, and Sukho Thai.
  • Our parties are held after store hours so that you can have the ENTIRE store for your party!
  • If you have a set budget that you'd like your guests to stick to, please let us know in advance so that we can pull examples of that price range to show your guests. We can work with any budget from $10.00 (which is enough to make a pair of earrings) and up. In order to give each guest attention,  guests will be limited to one project. All guests must make the same TYPE of project, which is chosen at booking. At the bottom of this page you will see the photos of the choices. Guests will have many creative choices on what they want their pieces to look like, you are only committing to a TYPE of jewelry. (A necklace party, a bracelet party, etc...)
  • To guarantee your party reservation, a non-refundable $50 booking fee is collected.  Gratuity and any additional fees or supplies can be paid for on the night of your party.
  • Your party will be carefully planned to end on time. We ask that you respect the 2 hour party time limit, and bring your party to a close on time. If you are not ready for your evening to be over, we have many fun restaurants and bars in the area, which you can even walk to! If you think you'll need longer than 2 hours for your party, please just let us know and we can give you a special quote for a longer time frame. Parties that exceed their allotted time without a prior booking will be charged $39.99 per 1/2 hour.

To book your party please call and ask for the party manager, or email us at BeadShopNewOrleans@gmail.com

Bridal Party Details:

Brides bring your bridesmaids in for a private party and create your own CUSTOM wedding jewelry of your dreams! It is a GREAT way to get the bridal party together, create something beautiful, AND mark something off of your long "Wedding To-Do List!"  The wedding party will love making their own pieces and we will be here to guide you through the fun jewelry making process. If you would like your bridesmaids to have matching sets, many brides prefer to come in a few weeks before the party. We will help you design their bridesmaids piece first, that way on the night of your party, they will all have a necklace to copy, and it will guide them through the design process.  If you prefer to give the bridesmaids some creative choice in the process, we can accommodate that as well. Just let us know your preference. The party pricing is the same as the above Adult Jewelry Party details. If the host prefers to pay for the bridesmaids materials in addition to the party fee, you can do that as well. Otherwise each bridesmaid can be individually responsible for their beads and supplies on the night of the event.
