Hi! I’m a corporate services coordinator by day and party planner in my dreams! I’m Cornish born and bred but am now living in Hertfordshire with my hubby and 2 boys having come via Bristol, back to Cornwall, London and the Cayman Islands.
I’ve always loved decorating for a party but my real love (some might call it obsession) for party planning and party DIY came about when I started planning my wedding in Cayman. A tiny island in the Caribbean has limits on party supplies when you don’t want to spend a fortune on hiring a professional service to do it for you.
There was lots of Etsy shopping and Pinterest searching, not to mention endless nights of trial and error.
From there the obsession began, Palm Tree Printables came in to being and Sunshine & Smiles became a bit more than a far fetched dream.
Sunshine and Smiles – Events by Rachel is now a reality, starting out with parties in a box for hire.
I’ve been there, you have a great theme in mind but you can’t seem to find everything in one place and the hours of searching online shops, strolling the high street and looking at endless Pinterest posts is just too much to face. Now you don’t need to. Easier for you and better for the environment, you can now hire everything you need and return when you’re done so I can get it ready for the get party.
