A bit about me...

Kids Dream Parties was an idea I had as 'party season', as I like to call it, approached. The time of year when Miss Evie (5) comes home with the chitter chatter and excitement of the many upcoming birthday celebrations. What type of party will they have this year?! "What type of party will I have this year?!!" I had an idea, recognised the gap in the market and jumped on it immediately. The event planner in me ignited! Within a matter of days, Kids Dream Parties was well underway - ideas were flying, stock arriving, and the word was out! Mangawhai's first ever kids sleepover company! It was warming to have others in the community get excited with me, and the support from local businesses was epic! I really wanted to utilise not only my own event management experience, I also want to utilise and highlight the talented individuals and businesses this awesome community has to offer - support local Mangawhai! 

Magical Mangawhai has been my home away from home since I was 19, and since 2015, my family and I have been lucky enough to now call it our home (what an absolute dream!). I am an ECE teacher, and having taught at the local kindergarten, I have had the privilege of getting to know many of the Mangawhai community. My husband also owns a local business, and could possibly be found talking to yours about concrete! We have 3 children - Luka, 11, Evie, 5, and Ollie who is 1. 

The thing is, I know all too well that life is busy, and sometimes organising a party can be overwhelming, or tricky to manage with limited retailers and services in a rural town. My goal is to take the pressure off, providing easy options, packages and optional add-ons that will set you up for a successful party - with ease! Parties that are a sure thing to be talked about and remembered for a lifetime, shared with good mates and family. 


So, that's me! I'm pulling out all the magic, Mangawhai, to bring to you a party your kids will always remember.


Giggling, dancing, sharing secrets, dreaming and imagining... I remember my childhood sleepovers vividly. I can tell you firsthand, as a little girl, sleepovers with my best mates were some of the most memorable and fun times of my childhood. Let me help you create an unforgettable party experience for your children.
