Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans

I am an absolute planner.  In everything I do.   Whether it be a holiday, a party, a weekend away or a trip to the shops – I plan.  So when things don’t pan out as I expect them to it throws me.

So when life threw the latest curve ball at me recently – a big one at that – It knocked me for six.  Maybe because of how close to my heart it was, or maybe because of the severity of it.  My Mum was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer at the end of October last year.  Needless to say I raced across to South Africa to be with her and spent the last few months of 2015 with my Mum and my munchkins in South Africa, and although we are lucky to still have my Mum with us, she continues to fight this dreaded disease.

My Mums diagnosis was a huge reminder to me to not take for granted that “tomorrow” is what I think it will be, nor what I’ve planned for it to be or what I am expecting it to be.  My wish for you and your families this year is for you to hold on to the famous Lennon quote from “Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy),” and remember to enjoy every moment and every day you have with your loved ones:

                         “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.

Maternity leave until July 2015

Since our launch almost a year ago we have had the pleasure of coordinating a number of precious children’s parties around Melbourne.  From pink elephants, vintage train, mystical winter wonderland through to under the sea themed parties and events …… with a lovely mix of baby showers, first birthday parties and fun toddler events!!  We have loved planning and coordinating each and every one and look forward to many more in the months and years to come!

During this time we have also worked closely with some amazing and talented suppliers whom we are so pleased to have met and developed relationships with.  Melbourne really has so many wonderfully talented people!!!

A few of the highlights of our most recent parties are pictured below (complete galleries to be loaded on facebook soon).

Amongst meeting new suppliers and coordinating numerous parties and events we have also had some big news with the birth of our little boy early this year.  As such tiny tot’s events are focusing on family life currently and enjoying the new addition immensely.

We are taking a bit of time out from planning tiny tot parties until July 2015.  We are still responding to inquiries and taking bookings for the last 6 months of the year, however please bear with current response times and allow 3-5 days turn around.   At this time we are only in a position to respond to email inquiries, therefore please submit your enquiry to for a response.

Thank you for your understanding whilst we enjoy this precious time. Chantelle, Tiny Tots Events xx

up & running… children’s parties melbourne.

This is it.  I am finally doing it.  After years and years of planning and coordinating events of all shapes and sizes from private birthday parties, conferences, gala dinners, cocktail parties and weddings……all for big people, I have now decided to start having some fun with little people’s parties and events!  Having wanted to setup my own business since my first job as a wedding coordinator, I am finally doing it 16 years later.  So excited it’s finally happening and that I get to have fun working on children’s parties and special events.

The turning point for me making this decision was just after having styled and coordinated my little girl’s first birthday party.  I had so much fun with her little owl theme that my brother in law questioned when the “marching band was due to arrive!”

It was apparent to me then that this is what I was going to do.  I am privileged to be able to follow my heart and work where my passion lies….  With 100% coordination of children’s events!

I look forward to sharing the tiny tot’s events with all of you through my blog in the months and years to come.  I will be posting all the tiny details to share the how to’s, where to’s and what to’s in little people’s parties.   A snapshot of some of our recent parties in preparing for our business launch is featured below.
