Creations Party Depot is the brainchild of two dedicated mothers, Rowena Marie “Ena” C. Tai and Marie F. Lo, bound together by their love for all things related to parenting and motherhood. This event styling company specializes in beautifying event spaces with party decors and furnishings that are tailor-fit to every client’s taste and budget.

“We’ve always loved arts and crafts even before we became mothers,” shares Ena. “And now that we have our own children, we get to enjoy more of crafting by sharing little handmade creations with kids and fellow mommies. We’re also very hands on when it comes to planning our own parties. We even make the decors, invites, and pastries ourselves.”

Channeling Martha Stewart eventually took Marie and Ena from one creative venture to another. “As DIY (do-it-yourself) fanatics, we are always on the lookout for unique art materials --- to a point that we’ve become hoarders. To our dismay, there are just a few shops in town which sell these items and we end up buying our materials abroad or in Manila. We knew a lot of mothers are also into crafting, nowadays. So we decided to put up our own online shop and supply materials to other DIY fanatics.”

“It didn’t take long before inquiries started to come in, asking us if we supply party decors. Soon, our online craft shop became a full-blown business, servicing parties and other events. Now, aside from supplying craft materials, we also lease out food carts and design dessert stations and table centerpieces. We also customize loot bags, giveaways, invitations, and other party decors.”
Ena describes their planning and design philosophy as creative, contemporary, and fun. “Some parents may have this notion that anything DIY or handmade is expensive. Marie and I understand and share all these concerns on budget and party planning. That’s why we always work around our client’s budget. After all, our main function is to help every family create happy memories.”
