How would you describe yourself/Business? We are a “One stop” for all events decorations and catering needs.
What are the challenges that you face as a business owner? Business is seasonal and mostly busy during the summer period. Winter season is quite slow and very little business coming in. Also being an independent contractor, diversifying the client base is vital to a growing business but can be difficult- especially when the client in question pays well and on time. For many small businesses, having a client willing pay on time for a service or product is a godsend.
Why did you decide to go into business? I am a foodie…Lol! I love and enjoy cooking, I am fascinated with colours/balloons etc and after planning my own successful wedding, I decided to put my party experience to good use and started my own business as an Event Decorator. I had opportunities thrown at me from clients in helping to coordinate their weddings, birthdays etc. Also Individuals often find they lack the expertise and time to plan events themselves so we step in to give these special events the attention they deserve.
