I got engaged in October 2018 and when we started planning our wedding, we realised how difficult it is to find suppliers who offer little touches like sweets, desserts and the such, in our local vicinity for an affordable price.
Between my partner and I, we don't have a mass of income coming into the house - she is a nurse and I work in spectacle lens manufacturing. Neither is particularly glamorous, but we wanted to make our day extra special regardless. We both come from low income backgrounds with single Mum's, both of whom installed hard working attitudes into us.
So, we purchased a second hand sweetie cart and the next day, a friend of mine asked if we could rent it to her for a party she was having - and it took off from there!
My vision is to grow my little side hustle into a full blown business. With the ability to hire out anything from tables and chairs, to magicians and bouncy castles! Maybe that's reaching for the stars - but why shoot for the stars when you could aim for the moon?
My favourite part of my business plan is that our products and services are AFFORDABLE. This means we can provide to low income families, charities and everything in between! With charity events, we do not wish to profit from them, so the only money we take is that which covers our outgoings for products, travel etc. The rest goes back into the charity :)
I truly cannot wait to get started properly - we have already bagged our 2 charity events, a christmas fayre and a birthday party! But we need more support and finance to grow properly :)
