Hooray! Is just an understatement for exuberant parties. Parties with a spontaneous look, but also a solid backbone.
You know it: an overcrowded agenda, no desire for a banal party, no desire to run from hot to her and let your agenda bulge even more. The answer? The a-tot-z-approach that Hooray! offers.
If you're looking for a party with natural and style, you'll often be hungry. With Hooray! I want to change that. Parties that are both friendly and surprising and sophisticated. It's not an easy challenge, but it's precisely that challenge that feeds my creativity. And also: for me, a party is only really successful if it gets stuck. At Hooray! you can go for refreshing events with a nose for aesthetics, which surprise you down to the smallest details.
What can you expect from Hooray! Depending on your expectations, I will look at every aspect of your event. From the location hunting to the flower bouquet, catering, decoration, styling, make-up & hair, invitations and music. With a recognizable signature and an outspoken style. On the festive day I take care of the full coordination of your event, so that you can enjoy it above all.
You compose your own party formula so that - if you want - you only have to slide your feet under the table.
