Is she really the dream girl?

What are Mabel’s measurements?


Seriously! You never ask a girl that! Just kidding! Mabel is a big girl...she has a presence to say the least! Mabel is just about 8 feet tall, 8 feet wide and about 17 feet long (from the hitch to the back)! Please keep in mind Mabel is attached to a full size pickup. We can get Mabel anywhere both will fit. All we need is a flat space and we would prefer to have access to power. Mabel needs enough room to park, and there must be room for the truck and Mabel to pull through and/ or around. It is preferred that sufficient electricity is provided with a standard plug (but a generator can be used if need be). If relevant, please contact your venue to check their rules on drive up trailers. If permits are needed for Mabel to be present at the chosen location, it is up to the client to provide the permit. *If there is any doubt about whether or not Mabel will not fit, we will conduct a site visit to assess the space.

Then, we arrange a time for Mabel to be picked up and off to her next Magical event Making Memories. With Mabel’s Blank Canvas option....you, your caterer, event planner or venue would be in charge of all alcohol, food, glassware, rentals, decor, styling,etc. “Mabel with Chaos and Cappuccinos” is another option- more along our Making Magical Memories and Making Memories with Mabel packages (listed on Services page). Have Chaos and Cappuccinos style Mabel for your event and curate all of your visions, bringing them to life.

Yes, we have general liability insurance. Any Vendors working in Mabel must be fully Insured.




Do I need to get a Special Occasions Permit (SOP)?


YES, if Mabel will be serving or selling alcohol & only if you are holding your event on public property (ex: Town hall, Church, Event Venue, etc.). If you are holding the event on private property (ex: Backyard, Cabin, Property, Farm, etc) a SOP is NOT required. For more information and to apply online, please visit Alchol and Gaming Commision of Ontario website. We are always happy to help with the application process if needed! A Special Occasions Permit (SOP) allows for the sale and service of alcohol on special occasions, such as cash bars at weddings or private receptions, as well as larger public events. A SOP is required any time alcohol is served anywhere other than in a licensed establishment or a private residence.




How many people can fit inside of Mabel?


Comfortably a dinner party of 8-10 people can fit inside Mabel while sharing and gathering together over a meal with a harvest table. *Standing, Mingling, Lounging, Photo taking, Grazing over yummy desserts, drinks and charcuterie boards is a different story....10-15 people can comfortably stand, lounge and relax inside Mabel while Making Memories over conversations, laughing, eating, drinking, photo taking and of course, memory making. But remember...that is just inside! She creates a gorgeous backdrop or main statement piece for all those mixing and mingling around her and in front of her.




Can you set up inside if needed?


We sure can! If the weather isn’t cooperating, or you just prefer the indoors, Mabel can move inside if there is appropriate space. If there isn’t a space (i.e barn, garage, etc.) you can coordinate a tent or other type of shelter for Mabel to be parked under.
