Today we chat to two girls we could shimmy and shake with all night, Lisa and Bianca from Hello Kit Co. Their kooky hand-curated party kits give us #LIFE , and are perfect for those who have minimal time on their hands to plan a party!
Introduce yourself and your business.
We are Lisa and Bianca and our business is Hello Kit Co. Our business is all about celebrating and decorating. We have sourced and created kits and sets of elements to bring crazy-colour, happiness and originality to the party!
Why did you start your business?
As visual merchandisers/stylists we had so many unique ideas that we wanted to bring to life. Over the years, we had worked with some fantastic brands, concepts and suppliers and we thought that it would be fun to bring some of this into people’s homes – just like the retail and commercial jobs we had worked on.
What gap in the party market does your business fill?
We try to source and (if something that we want doesn’t exist), develop products, specifically so they work together well as a story. That’s the visual merchandising side, that’s always a driving force. We have tried to really ‘Kit’ up and create stories key products, so that creating an aspirational look and feel is achievable for everyone. We have also tried to keep things really affordable – our cake toppers, [confetti]](/s/confetti) and poppers are price-accessible. We have explored local production options where possible as well. We love the idea of supporting local!
Why should you and your business be invited to a party?
We will always bring originality and a unique touch. We are quiet in personality, but colour is our music!
What do you find captivating about the world of events?
We love the idea that you can captivate people’s imaginations, and effect their mood. It may be an invite in one of our Diamond Treasure Trinket Boxes or a gorgeous confetti trail on a birthday morning – it’s the ‘wow’ of the positive experience that’s captivating.
What is your go-to party tip?
More is ALWAYS more!
What is in your party purse?
We have been known to try to board planes with staple guns in our bags! And Allen Keys. Very unintentionally.
What is your go-to party outfit?
Something black! And sparkle is always good!
Describe your dance floor style.
We have a preference for dance floors that light up! (haha!)
What story will be told about you the day after the party?
“We have never seen that before!”
