Our one-of-a-kind experiences include the Original Paint Nite, Plant Nite, Design-A Sign, Flower Workshop, and Candle Maker, with more on the way. Give your week something to shout about!

At our creative experiences, Co-Hosts work alongside our Hosts to deliver a memorable customer experience. As a Co-Host you are an extension of our brand; it is your responsibility to engage our guests and create a party where people come together to escape the expected and share in fun, creative experiences.

You will:

  • Work alongside Hosts to ensure the successful execution of creative experiences.
  • Run the logistics of the event so Hosts can focus on hosting/teaching. Use provided supplies to set up the room and guest stations prior to the event, check guests in as they arrive, and clean up the room so it is left as pristine as when you arrived.
  • Provide excellent customer service, doing everything possible to make guests’ night even more fun. Maintain positive relationships with our contacts at the venues by representing our brand.
  • Work events for high priority groups such as corporate clients and private fundraisers, presenting a delightful and professional presence as our on-site company representative. These events may require a larger time commitment or additional effort to make sure clients have a superb experience with Yaymaker.
  • Do basic inventory of supplies and communicate back to management if anything needs attention.
  • Take photos of guests throughout the event to help make it even more memorable and worth sharing with friends.
  • Submit monthly work availability in our scheduling system for:
    • at least 3 events per week
    • at least 2 Saturdays per month


You have:

  • A fun, outgoing personality and a “show must go on” attitude! Your presence should positively add to the overall customer experience, so as a “social butterfly” you need to be comfortable interacting with groups of 30-50.
  • Willingness to lift and move items. This may require moving tables and chairs into position as well as lifting bins filled with supplies.
  • Comfort with technology; we use an online application for scheduling and you will need to use our website on your mobile device to check customers in.
  • Minimum age of 21.
  • Ability to work the expected duration of the assigned event (or as we call it, an “experience”)

Length of time at events may vary. Listed below are the approximate work hours per event type:

  • Paint Nite Experience, with co-host - 4.5 hours
  • Paint Nite Experience, solo - 5.5 hours
  • Paint Nite Experience, 50+ attendees - 5.5 hours

Physical Demands:
