We understand that planning an important event is stressful and can rob you of the joy of the celebration when you’re worrying if you’ve forgotten anything.

Whether you are celebrating a little number, or Big “0” birthday,  an anniversary, engagement, intimate wedding, bar/bat mitzvah or other traditional event, Blue Velvet provides a very personal approach and single point of contact service.

Our dedicated team takes great pride in creating the most unique and spectacular celebrations, with no detail left to chance.  We take care of site selection and management, appointment and supervision of partners and vendors that align with your budget and vision.  We provide guidance from catering and menu planning, invitations, gifting and etiquette advice.  By sharing detailed timelines, mood boards and priority access to the Blue Velvet Events planning team from start to finish, you can relax knowing that everything is taken care of.

Your Blue Velvet Events coordinator is the first to arrive on site and the last to leave on event day.  We manage all elements from set up to conclusion as well as guest assistance, cueing activities for a successful event flow to final goodbyes.

We ensure your vision is brought to life and expectations exceeded throughout.

Thank you so much for all that you have done to make my special birthday one to always remember. I could not have asked for a more beautiful backdrop to the perfect evening and it was more than I could have ever dreamed of and more – all thanks to you.

I don’t know where to start, these guys are just amazing. Every year I plan and set up my daughter’s birthday on my own, however this year I wasn’t going to be able to, so decided to go with Blue Velvet Events. They planned everything so well, the cute Madagascar propped table, the cake with the Madagascar characters, food, events and activities; everything was just perfect.

Where do i begin. From the planning, to the decor, to venue selection, entertainment, accommodation, room drops and all the fun quirky ideas to make the day extra special for Mel – I was blown away. I can unequivocally say that were it not for Blue Velvet Events I would never have pulled off such a phenomenal surprise party for my friend. You took all the hassle out of hosting an event for me and by being at the event from start to finish you ensured that we could all enjoy ourselves until the small hours of the morning. Honestly was so impressed and have referred Blue Velvet to many of my friends
