HEDS: We are a Markham-based creative events company. We use our creativity, craftiness and penchant for everything pretty to create hoopla for both personal and corporate events and occasions. With over 10 years in floral design and two lifetimes of crafting, we can deliver a unique, handmade, totally rockin' event from invitations to signage, floral arrangements to floral crowns, unique backdrops to full-on installations, and everything in between. We create hoopla!
Hoopla all began with a need to get out of our corporate jobs and finally do something in the creative field. Our husbands are best friends, so we've known each other for years. One day, as we were complaining about our jobs, we just said to each other, "We need to do something creative. And we are going to be really good at it." With backgrounds in both events and florals, event design was just a given. We came up with a plan, got some clients (all family and friends to begin with) and started a website. Then it just happened!
HEDS: We love the planning stage. After meeting with our clients and understanding their needs, we go back to the drawing board, so to speak and come up with some wicked ideas. Our next favourite thing is the install. There's not a better feeling than creating something you came up with and it looking so good. Our not so favourite part, as with most creative professionals we're guessing, is the whole business side - accounting, taxes - numbers aren't our thing.
HEDS: Shannon - glue gun! Robin - pinking shears!
RB: Tell us about one of your favourite projects (each or together).
HEDS: Last year, we worked on a sweet 16 birthday party. It was straight out of MTV's Super Sweet Sixteen. We covered the whole ceiling in disco balls, pinatas, frilly garlands and lanterns. It was heaven! Also, we just recently did a baby's 100th day circus celebration and we loved every minute of it! There were handmade marquee lights, blow up circus animals and lots of red and white striped fabric. It was different and it was super fun!
HEDS: Over the past three years we have collected a lot of stuff! Since floral design is a big part of our business, we have a ton of vases - antique, modern, clear, opaque, etc. The rest of the stuff is pure fun - disco balls, pinatas, flamingoes and lots more!
