The Little Carousel Is a boutique event styling and hire business based in Christchurch. We specialize in Children’s Birthday parties but you name the event and we can do it! We even offer wedding styling packages. Our love for classic and vintage with a pop of modern , sets us aside from your usual party businesses. We have an eye for detail and love watching the magic of parties come alive!


After noticing a gap in the market in children’s party businesses in Christchurch, I decided to combine my love for parties and styling into a business that would take the stress out planning parties for busy parents. Why not spend more time enjoying the time with your family, and let someone else organise the party? Whether you want a custom party or just to pick up one of our themed party boxes, or even hire a few items for your own special party, we are here to help.


As a mum who has done a number of parties/events myself, I found sourcing the items for the perfect party a fun but tedious job. You have to shop all over to get the items to put your party together and then we are left with the decorations afterward, and where do we put them?! Especially if you don’t have that particular theme again.
That’s where our themed party boxes and hire items come in, you don’t have to find the items, or even try and store them afterwards, we take care of that for you.
We believe this is such an economical and environmentally friendly way to do children’s parties, lets minimize wastage and reuse what we can!


The Little Carousel was dreamed up by me- Jen Collett. I am trained teacher turned event styler and also a mum of three. I love children’s parties- the researching, the designing, the planning, the creating, the prepping and the styling (basically the whole process!!)
I love finding unique items that will fit in perfectly with the events, and so my Hire Library is filled with unique finds and many one off items that I hope will be a perfect finishing touch to your event.
I believe in supporting small and local businesses, so a lot of my hire items or party supplies/decorations are made right here in New Zealand by many other talented mums!
