My back story
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. 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 values and want to reduce the amount of plastic party waste!
