Hey! I’m Marissa.

A Darwin wife and Mum of two little girls with a love of celebrating life's moments - big or small!

BAM Party and Events started out as a creative outlet while I was on maternity leave in 2019 with my first daughter.  I designed custom cake toppers and personalised welcome signs that could be hired.

As I scoured the pages of pinterest and instagram for inspiration I was always drawn to the bright and colourful pictures of parties and weddings and dreamed of one day opening a shop of my own where I could be surrounded by the fun and sheer joy that party planning bring me! But as I returned to my day job with another baby already on the way (there's only 18 months between my girls) the thought was pushed to the "too hard basket".

Skip forward to maternity leave 2.0 and the desire to do something my heart was truly in was unavoidable so BAM Party and Events party and wedding shop was born.

If the last few years has taught me anything its that life is truly worth celebrating.  Whether that be life's major milestones or Friday night games night with you family.  If it brings you joy - celebrate it! 

So what does 2022 bring for BAM? Well, Darwin is getting a dedicated party and wedding shop right in the heart of the city and I can't wait to walk into my very own real life pinterest board every day and call it work!

I will literally talk for hours to any one who will listen about all things parties and weddings so if you are in need of some ideas, need help finding a vendor or just want to talk about your plans with someone who will be genuinely interested and just as excited as you drop me a line or pop into the shop and I'd be more than happy to help however I can.
