Hi I’m Juliana, and I’m the founder of Partyora.
I’m a people person, lover of life & lover of parties!
My husband, Mark, & I settled down & began a family. Before we knew it we went from just the 2 of us to a family of 6 in the space of 3 1/2 years!!!
Our hands were full and life was very different but we had so many more reasons to celebrate!
With our 4 little boys, 2 of which are identical twins, I had the perfect excuse to throw heaps of parties and it has truly become my passion.
I love to plan every detail, make the decorations, dress up for the ocassion and really celebrate the day!
Throwing kids parties is what I enjoy most!
If i’m not planning the next birthday, and pinning new ideas to my Pinterest, you’ll find me trying to keep the boys entertained with crafts, lots of dancing with our baby disco parties in the loungeroom + surviving on my morning cappuccino or 2!
A bit about Me
Originally from a small town in NSW, my parents threw my brothers and I the most ah-mazing birthday parties. They were the talk of the town. With 30 kids in our whole school, the whole town was there!
Mum was the chef, producer, entertainer and maker of the enormous pass-the-parcel! My Nona was so creative and would teach us how to make the piñata. Dad would recreate cakes from the cake decorating magazine—My hero.
These wonderful and happy childhood memories are where my love for parties all began!
Somewhere along the way I found myself shopping for convenience, buying all the balloons and plastic party items that would end up in the bin moments after being used because it was just quicker. I realised what a waste it was and I felt so guilty.
I knew I could be doing better so I began researching.
I found some eco friendly party businesses, some who completely switched over to an eco friendly range and some who were waiting for the opportunity to do so which is amazing.
Seeing the ripple effect first hand felt like I was really making a difference from the start! It was difficult to find these eco friendly kids party supplies & items in the one place so, I decided why not create it?!
I started on my business journey late 2019 and launched Partyora in January 2020 with some amazing small eco friendly businesses who share the same vision as me.
You can read all about some of the small businesses I work with on our monthly blog
We are almost ready to launch our brand new eco directory which will house some of the best, cake makers, entertainers, florists & more who all share our vision and care about sustainability.
