PLEASE NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that the items are packaged in original (or similar) packaging and ready for shipment.


If there is visible damage to the packaging, please mark your delivery slip as such. You should also open the package immediately and inspect the product for damage. If there is obvious shipping damage, you may refuse the item and ask the freight carrier to take it back to the originating point. Please contact Event Decor Direct as soon as that happens.

We will begin our investigation and claims process with the shipping company. These can take anywhere from 8 to 30 days to complete. We will replace the damaged merchandise at no charge to you.

In order to return an item, you must first request an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number from Event Decor Direct. This request must be received no later than seven (7) business days from receipt of the merchandise. You may request an RMA number by calling 1-800-914-3538 or by sending an email to customer.service@eventdecordirect.com No merchandise may be returned without an RMA number. A form will be sent to you via email that must be printed and returned with the package. A 15% restocking fee will be assessed to all non-custom orders. Call us if you have any questions about this. Shipping fees are non-refundable and you will be responsible for return shipping costs.
While we do our very best to meet customer deadlines, there are always situations where a deadline can't be met. Failure to meet a deadline does not remove a customer's obligation to pay the normal cancellation fees. The best way to prevent this is to make sure we are aware of your deadline and to monitor your emails for a tracking number sent out around the time an order gets shipped.

In your request for RMA # please include the following:

1. Your order number. 

2. The item number of the products you wish to return. 

3. The quantity of the item you want to return. 

4. The reason for the return.

PLEASE NOTE: All merchandise must be returned in the original condition, packaging and shipping configuration. Product received in other than the original packaging may not be resalable, and either no refund will be issued or additional charges will apply. If in doubt, please discuss the situation with us before requesting an RMA.

Items in the Themed Decor, Event Furniture, Scratch and Dent, Portable Displays, and Storage Solutions are not available for returns and all sales are final.

Any products that are custom made such as Designer Tablecloths and Overlays or are custom sewn to your specifications are considered final sale and cannot be returned.


Generally, your order will ship within 48 to 72 hours, but it is VERY IMPORTANT that if you have a deadline you meet, you make us aware of it.

If you are contacted by Event Decor Direct because of a delay, backordered item, or we cannot meet your deadline and you wish to cancel your order we will reverse the payment and cancel the order.

If you decide to cancel your order, please contact us at 1.800.914.3538 or email to customer.service@eventdecordirect.com as soon as possible and we will cancel the order. If we are able to cancel, your credit card charge will be reversed with no restocking fee. Your credit card statement will reflect both the charge and the refund.

If your order ships and you cancel immediately after it ships, you will be responsible for all outbound and inbound shipping costs. You will need to receive the order and then call us to arrange a return per the above RMA instructions. Refusal of a shipment is not an acceptable way of returning/cancelling an order and may be subject to additional fees and penalties.

Cancellations or returns must be authorized in advance.
