Igloo Experiences Blog


In far less than ideal weather conditions (read pouring down with rain and we got soaked twice over) the Mistress team put together our first Igloo Experience at Napoleone Cider yesterday for a proposal as part of a day organised by The Yarra Valley Touring Company

As our first proper trial run we are now able to give you some more information & update our offering.

Even on a cold (roughly 10 degrees) wet day the igloos are cosy and warm, with our candles from Mr Jasper Says creating a scented ambience.  

After putting up the igloo in-store we thought we may only be able to accommodate up to 5 people but we are happy to announce that 6 people, with 7 people at a max is definitely doable. (all on our vintage lounges or armchairs)

A bit of background info on how long the process takes to set up, and pack up for our team.  Whilst conditions weren't great yesterday and we still have plenty of practice to get under our belt it took 2 Mistresses 1.5hrs to set up the igloo and then another hour to set up the interior (this includes lugging furniture from the van, etc).  Then pack up was about 30mins, and we left the poles for our Junior Mistress to clean once we are back at the shop.  But hey, we think you are all worth it. xx
