Way back when...

We started with a love of creating beautiful celebrations - and the belief that all things should be celebrated! We get one life, it should be a good one, and having family and friends around us is such a big part of that.

We started in 2011 - known then as Oh Buttercup Events, and have evolved and changed in leaps and bounds ever since. Our core values and creative passion is still as bright as ever, and we are always looking for innovative and creative ways to make something truly personal and special for our clients - whether that is helping our clients choose decorative items to hire, to styling their wedding or a corporate event. We love the diversity and change the industry constantly brings
