What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a graphic designer, I have always loved creating and knew that I wanted to do something creative.

What made you start your business?
I’ve always had a passion for gorgeous paper products and wanted to work for myself and design my own products.

What’s the most outlandish job/party you’ve ever done?
Designing the theme for my sons christening, where I created a Noah’s ark theme. I drew all the graphics myself and produced invites, tags and matching partyware. It was a great success and loved by so many others that it is now one of our most popular ranges.

What would be your ideal party?
I would love to have a stylish party designed by myself that is outdoors, like on a boat on a nice day on the harbour, where there is lots of colour, glitter and sparkles. And of course lots of fun.

What makes your business unique?
Every single product is designed by me in our Sydney studio. I design and produce seasonal ranges and every year we launch a new range of partyware that is in line with the current fashion trends.

What do you love most about your work?
That I can design and create my own unique and high-quality products. I love it when wholesale customers come back and tell me they were blown away by our range and that it has sold out within a few days of being in their store. I also love being part of a network of entrepreneurs, it’s great to be around other people who are working towards the same goals.

 Who do you admire and why?
I admire and am inspired by other entrepreneurs that have built successful businesses from scratch and are now very successful in what they do.
