Taking it easy-peasy
Eezy Peezy Parties, a new online service takes the stress out of children’s parties, writes Carolynne Dear.
Is there anything more time consuming than planning a children’s birthday party? Step forward Hong Kong mum Christine Smith and her new online children’s party-planning service, Eezy Peezy Parties.
It’s a complete solution for frazzled mothers. Eezy Peezy Parties delivers e-vites, manages the replies, oversees the gift list, delivers presents wrapped and labelled to the party, supplies party decorations and tableware, and even sends thank-you e-cards. The only thing she doesn’t do is fill the goodie bags (“Although I could if you needed that service,” she adds good-naturedly).
She and her team have spent the past 18 months scouring trade fairs and the internet for top party goodies and she believes Eezy Peezy Parties now has the widest selection in Hong Kong.
She has also created a list of entertainers, cake makers, venues, equipment suppliers (think bouncy castles) and interior designers to ensure your child’s party is perfect.
She has plans to move into adult parties soon (“Baby showers, hen parties, 21sts, 40ths and so forth,” she clarifies quickly).
Throughout the year, Smith will be adding to her Aladdin’s cave on Ap Lei Chau, with themed party gear for Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other holidays.
If you don’t need the full package, you can shop online or select elements of the service. If Uncle George is wearing his clown suit to young Brian’s fifth birthday, or little Tabitha insists on a homemade cake, skip these sections of the website and let Smith take the strain in other areas.
