I love a well themed and co-ordinated party – the little details that tie things together have always been something that I have appreciated so when it came time to plan my kids parties it was the perfect opportunity for me to focus on these details and I guess one thing led to another and here I am!
What is your favorite part of your daily work … when you reflect on the day, what is most rewarding?
So many things are rewarding – I am particularly excited by my photography work that I am currently doing – to be able to capture those details about the party and really highlight them is wonderful. I also get so much reward from the lovely comments and feedback I get on Facebook, my blog and via email. It is wonderful when someone takes time out to comment on something you have created.
What is your most memorable party design project?
There have been a number of memorable projects especially in the past few months – the elegant yellow and grey mothers day table I recently put together is memorable because of the location, time and date it all came together. The fabulous fluro pink and white table that I put together for a recent party was memorable because it was so fantastic to look at and the Oh Sweet Mum Cake Table I created for an amazing e-vent a few weeks ago would have to be one of the most amazing collections of cakes all in one place that I have ever seen!
If you could style a party for anyone in the world, who would it be?
Oooh someone who wants to create a wow factor – for some reason J-Lo keeps coming to mind – I think she would be the kind of girl that would like something classy and spectacular!
What thing/place/event were you most recently inspired by?
Seasons and colours are inspiring me at the moment – I just received some beautiful new blue cake stands into my online store so I am feeling very inspired by blue!
Where is your favorite place you have traveled to?
I love Bali – I have a really an amazing connection with Bali – it’s serenity and beauty it wonderful – I could visit every year.
Where in the world are you dying to go next?
Byron Bay on the coast of Australia – I am headed there next week for a 4 day photography retreat and I am jumping out of my skin to get there!
What is your favorite Rosenberry Rooms product(s)?
I have always wanted an armoire and I love the look of the Provence Armoire – so elegant.
Do you have any news that you would like to share, perhaps about upcoming events or projects?
There are a number of great projects in the works – one for a fabulous US party girl and hopefully a magazine feature later in the year – still lots of planning to do but very exciting opportunities.
