I’ve always enjoyed organising my own kid’s parties and events – and I have to admit, I’m one of those mums that goes a little "over the top!” I have two children, Madeline aged 14 and Charlie aged 8. They have been very lucky to be on the receiving end of my party passion – they
even get kids asking them what party they are going to have this year and can they come?
After working in administration and finance in
universities for ages, I thought it was time for a more creative direction in my life – so I enrolled in a Diploma of Events that in 2011. I
wish I had realised what an amazing industry it is much earlier in my life!
I now work for my former teacher Shiree who is the Director of Pilkinton Productions
. We have a passion for creating unique, memorable, sustainable, "wow factor” events, festivals and arts projects that have that creative edge.
I think I get my party and events passion from my Dad’s mum, Gwen. I remember Nana, when I was very young, making heaps of little Easter baskets out of milk cartons with little handles using fringed crepe paper and split pins. She was also involved in the local senior citizens group and put on concerts all the time. She was always helping out with fundraisers and selling lucky number tickets at shopping centres for the local ambulance.
And Nana was also the local supermarket’s "Santa” every Christmas!
I think she would be very proud of who I’ve become – as I too enjoy organising fundraisers, helping out with concerts and fetes for the school and very much enjoy making people, especially children, happy. Although I don’t think I’ll be dressing up as Santa anytime soon!
I decided to launch my own children’s party styling business and website in April 2012, as I very much wanted to throw my hat into the ring, so to speak. I enjoy trolling the internet looking at all the beautiful parties and I’m itching to create my own parties and events for everyone!
After a milestone birthday in 2015, I also decided that I wanted to have my own retail space, so have now opened up a shop front in the lovely township of Buninyong near Ballarat. In the shop you'll find everything on the website as well as an array of giftware, jewellery, cards, wraps and miniature things for fairy doors and terrariums. Come in and say Hi!
