Introducing ‘Any Occasion Events’

We have such fabulous businesses on the children’s party directory and another of my advertisers is  Any Occasion Events which started out as a wedding invitation specialist many years ago and has gradually transformed into a bit of an anything goes kind of business.

From custom invitations and printables, custom made tablecloths and runners, chair covers, candy buffets and sourcing pretty things from shimmer gumballs to cake stands.

Introducing ‘Hanging Pretty’

I have some wonderful businesses advertising on my blog and I’ll be introducing you to them over time so you can discover some of the fantastic items which exist for your child’s parties and celebrations.

I love handmade items in a celebration and if you aren’t one for DIY there are some talented women who can create handmade decor for you such as Michelle – owner of Hanging Pretty. Michelle is based in Brisbane and works from her home studio, which she established in 2012 as a way to work from home while her kids were still little, making handmade prettiness.

Originally making unique mobiles for children’s rooms after not being able to find what she loved for her own daughter’s room a few years earlier she set about making her own bespoke creation and then went on to establish Hanging Pretty.

This beautiful mobile below really shows how Michelle’s business name “hanging pretty” aptly describes her creations!:

Michelle has previous work experience with events/functions so Hanging Pretty gradually transitioned from bespoke mobiles to custom papery for all aspects of events, boutique displays or photo-shoots where Michelle creates prettiness from a variety of mediums which are as unique as the person they are intended for.  As part of this transition Michelle drew on her experience and love of styling to offer styling ideas for boutique window displays, celebrations for any occasion and weddings.

Can you believe these are handmade flowers made by Michelle? Absolutely gorgeous!

Hanging Pretty has a wide range of possible items for your child’s celebration such as: Sewn silhouette garlands, Cake bunting, backdrops, toppers, embellishments for straws and bottles, tassels, favour boxes and more!

Hanging Pretty Services also include (On Location from Brisbane to Gold Coast): Photo-shoot Styling, event planning, boutique window displays, sourcing of products and more!

Michelle is really lovely to deal with and is fantastic at brainstorming ideas for your celebration and designing something unique for your child’s party theme.

If you have an idea and need someone to make it happen then make sure you contact Michelle at Hanging Pretty.
