Let’s get this party started!

Welcome and thank you for reading my very first blog post!

 

For the past 6 months, I have been busy toiling away developing my new online party boutique, Red Carousel. I’ve spent many hours in front of a computer screen; designing party printables, curating the best collection of products and putting together the website – all to help you party in style! It’s been so much fun choosing all the new stock for the shop, I’ve been like a kid in a candy store. I think I’ve finally (after many cups of coffee and sleepless nights) found the perfect balance of products to open shop with – and it’s only going to grow from here.

 

From where I’m standing, it’s a rainbow of colours and everything is oh-so charming. There are pretty balloons, vintage paper straws, perfectly coordinated tableware, designer cupcake liners, vibrant party printables, polka dots everywhere! It’s all fun, beautiful and very inspiring.

 

I’ve also spent some time behind the camera, styling and taking lots of photos. My creative side has been in overdrive! My biggest excitement, however, is helping my customers plan their special celebrations. I already have a couple of party styling projects coming up, which I’m really excited about.

 

While you’re browsing online, feel free to check out Red Carousel’s facebook page and blog frequently. I’ll showcase different party and craft ideas, helpful if you’re looking for something different or inspiring; tutorials, recipes, tips and advice to help you navigate the confusing party-planning process and party projects you’re going to love.

 

You’ll also find my personal loves too: handmade hobbies like sewing, crochet, cake decorating and children’s crafts featured pretty regularly as well. Every now and then, you may even find random insights into my daily life and a behind the scenes look at what goes on around here too.

 

I hope you enjoy the blog. Do let me know you’ve been to visit, I’d love to hear from you!

 

Ps. I’ve had people ask me about why the name Red Carousel. Basically I wanted a word that represented things such as “fun”, “playful”, “childhood” and “party”. The red and white are the colours of the Singaporean flag :)
