CAROLINE GARDINER

Caroline’s journey, preceding the running of one of Ireland’s most successful party planning companies, started in 2003 when she was appointed Sales & Marketing Director of Europe’s largest party store.

Her next related role was running a busy events team in one of Dublin’s most established restaurants. During this period, she gained great insight into her customer’s needs, the logistics and timings of events, budget control and making sure that each event or wedding went perfectly as planned.

Having developed an expert eye in events and parties coupled with a passion to always deliver what the client needs and wants, she founded The Party Professionals in 2008.

Caroline says

“Having started as the Celtic Tiger was dying, I learned how to strategically negotiate on behalf of my clients and to organise an event or party within an allocated budget. Even though we are out of the dark times, I still demand the best prices whilst never compromising on the quality of the service or product.

We are unique in the way that we operate: we don’t have preferred suppliers; we receive at least 3 quotes per event; and we choose our suppliers based on reputation and price. We do background checks on each supplier and will only use a supplier that we know we can depend on. Our customer is king and we work in making sure that each and every client receives the highest customer care before, during and after each event.”
