About Alice's Table
Alice’s Table, found online at AlicesTable.com, describes themselves as a company that works hard to provide women with a “one-of-a-kind” Girls’ Night Out experience as well as a money earning opportunity.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the goal of Alice’s Table is to bring women together to not only socialize but also to be creative and learn new skills in the art of flower care and flower arranging. Their website says that they hope to be a “bright spot in the modern busy woman’s life.”
Customers who are interested in taking part in an Alice’s Table event can either schedule their own event with a company representative in their own home, or they can go to their website and see what events have been scheduled in their area in partnership with local businesses.
Their website also says that participants who really love the Alice’s Table approach are encouraged to join up with them as a company representative in their own community.
This website does not provide the general public with a fully detailed explanation of their Compensation Plan, but they do say that their company handles all payment processing, customer support, platform access, and more for your independent business while representatives are able to take home 70% commission on ticket sales before the cost of flowers.
Because this company partners with so many different providers, like restaurants and retail stores, to provide their events customers will see significant variety in pricing depending on what the event is, where it is being held, what features and benefits are part of the event, and what the maximum size of the event is. Prices for each event will be clearly displayed before customers are asked to commit.
Customers who are considering becoming an Alice’s Table representative themselves will be able to purchase their Starter Kit for just $699. This price includes all the materials you will need for a 20 person event, including aprons, clippers, rose strippers, buckets, watering cans, spray cans, and plant food. It also provides all the learning materials and marketing materials representatives will need.
Unfortunately this company does not really provide their customers with a clear, standard Refund Policy at this time. Instead, their Terms and Conditions states that “payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for unused or partially used events.” They do concede that Alice’s Table might provide a refund or “other consideration” to customers at their own discretion, but no details are provided in regards to what circumstances might lead to this special consideration.

Unfortunately this company does not seem to have many customer reviews at this time, but even without customer reviews, the concerns about this company are obvious, and that is simply the lack of a clear and standard Refund Policy.
While the website does say that their company may offer refunds at their discretion, the reality is that there are many reasons why an event participant may need to cancel their attendance to an event and having a Refund Policy that clearly provides a time period in which a customer could successfully cancel and receive a refund would go a long way toward customer satisfaction.
There also isn’t that much information regarding this company as an independent business opportunity, but since their initial starting costs are significantly higher than many other similar companies, customers that are considering signing up for this opportunity will want to speak to a company representative regarding refunds in this area as well.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different companies that specialize in both “girl’s night out” parties as well as providing their participants with a money earning opportunity if they choose to take part, so customers who are looking for alternatives to Alice’s Table should have a variety of other options.

I was promised a class to learn flower arranging.
They canceled the class and would not give a refund. They said they would reschedule and do it virtual. Because I work in a hospital i told them I was not able to do a virtual because of my hours. This is the description of the class I paid for there is no way they can deliver virtual.I paid 60.00 and they were suppose to provide supplies.
Each guest will receive flowers for a medium sized arrangement and a stylish vase. All the tools you need for the class, including clippers and aprons. Often our classes feature a mixology demonstration with a taste test of the signature cocktail - check your event description to see if one is included!
I had a good time at my class. Even considering signing up. I do feel though, the class was a bit overpriced. Also what got to me, is Exec would go to the table before us and they would cherry pick all the flowers and our table was left with less blooms or buds. I feel that it would be more fair to already have the flowers at each setting with more of selection. Really pissed me off. Also, many of the flowers can be bought for about $30.00 and put your own arrangement together after being taught.
To say Alice's Table is multi level marketing is incorrect. Execs are offered a one time bonus for a referral and do not take a portion of that person's earnings. There is no hierarchy system and the primary focus is on hosting events, not recruiting more execs. It takes about 6-8 events to break even, after that each event is profitable.
