small conversations with The Revelry.

small conversations with The Revelry.

Planning an event for yourself can be stressful. It’s hard to enjoy your celebration if you’re thinking about lighting, cutlery, chairs or party favours. Luckily, you don't have to do that. Trust The Revelry to take care of all the details. Come to us with a seed of inspiration and let them plan and execute every detail – while you focus on making memories.

Throwing a great celebration is in founder Jane’s blood. Right from a young age, she has embraced any excuse to bring her friends and family together in any setting, at home, on the back lawn or deck, down at the local park, or at a hired venue.

We chat with Jane about sustainable gifts, hosting events and more...

Can you please tell us about The Revelry Event Hire and how it all started?

I’ve had my own business for 5 years now, and it has evolved. At the core, it’s all about assisting people to achieve their dream celebrations.  

Our clients are the host of the party, and we help them focus on the catch-ups and memories. We look after everything else to make it easy for them – we hire glasses, plates, brass candlesticks and vases, tealights, and we liaise with vendors. 

It’s our passion to bring people together to celebrate, be grateful, to have so much happiness from being together with friends and family. It’s all about creating memories. 

If you could describe your event style in a few words, what would it be?

Listening to client needs, and vision is really important – then creating an event style that is personalised and exceeds their expectations.

Can you run us through what organising an event can look like for The Revelry?

Running an event is about letting us do the thinking and organising for you. We can plan everything. We put together timelines, colour schemes, options for decorations, foliage and flowers, candles, catering and can manage supplier and vendor relationships.

No event is too big or too small – we love a special dinner party for 10 as well as a wedding with 130 guests, or a corporate event – every event and celebration is special and we like to share in bringing that celebration to life.

You offer such an amazing range of gifts. How do you choose what products to stock?

I choose products that simply I love. They are products that are tried and tested. They work, they are awesome!  Many are from the Coromandel or Hawke’s Bay – they are favourite products. I wear a tassel necklace most days, and I love the bracelets too. I love the power of scent in my home – it brings harmony and contentment to my day and evening, and I love to share all of these favourites with everyone.

Thank you for using our sustainable products. What sustainability practices have you introduced to The Revelry?

Hiring items – is all about us having the storage, and it being used over and over – it’s a very sustainable practice and makes sense on so many levels for our environment and generations to come.  

When it comes to other items, it’s just as important to think about sustainability so using with small products aligns with our focus – it is all about making good decisions and being kind to our environment.  We love your products and love sharing them with our clients – in turn, we hope they love them as much as us, and continue to use your products on an ongoing basis.

How would you say The Revelry’s event have evolved since starting until now?

It was simply a hire business, but we knew there was more we had to offer our clients, and provide an event styling and planning service, as well as a gift line that supports events.  It’s all about being a one-stop shop and saving our clients time and hassel. We love to assist and exceed expectations.  We are Auckland based, but service the Coromandel, and with our gift line we can assist clients nationwide too.

Now that we’re in Spring what are you favourite things to do around in Tāmaki Makaurau to enjoy the warmer weather?

I love to get outdoors with my family, walking, biking, or just smelling the fresh blooms of spring.  It’s wonderful to be at the seaside and feeling the sand in my toes again.  I feel very grateful, valuing and appreciating all we have on our doorstep.

Please be in touch, and we look forward to assisting you :)  

Lastly, can you please tell our readers where they can find and support you?
