We recently caught up with them to find out what makes them tick...
What do you love most about creating beautiful parties and events?
B. Taking photos of the finished product, when all the beauty and ideas come together!
K. I love sourcing inspiration from as many areas as I can, and then seeing it all come together on the day, I get a surprise every time.
What inspires you?
B. A blank canvas, pretty pastels, sugarcoating events!
K. The endless creativity, generosity and sharing of ideas and projects from the amazing girls I have been fortunate enough to have met and work with over the years in this business.
What lead you to start Sugarcoated Events?
B. After coming home from London and falling pregnant I spoke with mum about starting up our own events business. For as long as I can remember mum has been creating the best parties and it was time we came together to create for others.
K. After many years designing and styling for family and friends my daughter Brie returned from London and decided it was time we joined forces and Sugarcoated Events was born.
What is your fondest memory of being a kid?
B. A busy and fun house full of kids and a loving family. (I am the middle of 5 kids).
K. Growing up in a family of 5 kids there was always so much happening at our home, weekends were full of friends, swimming, and dad behind the wheel of our speedboat towing us around in the River.
Where is your favourite place to shop for kids in Sydney?
B. Kido store in Surry Hills, Charbella in Cronulla, My Messy Room in Summer Hill.
K: I love Country Road and Seed Kids, Charbella in Cronulla
If you were to create the ultimate cupcake what flavour would it be?
B. Vanilla on vanilla, with a touch of coconut! Oh and sprinkles!
