The Little Caravan

The Little Caravan was lovingly hand crafted and designed to be able to serve drinks from wherever your dream party venue may be. There aren’t many locations that she won’t go!

The beautiful interiors are simple and clean, allowing TLC to slot into any setting. Whether it’s fairy lights and flowers, or wine barrels and rambling ivy, we love styling TLC to fit your individual theme or location.

From gardens to farms (and even cliff tops), you can now plan your dream function anywhere, knowing you can have a fully stocked bar on site . . . and it will look utterly adorable, too.

Envy Events

There’s something truly magical about the collection of details that pulls an event together and to be trusted with that special occasion is incredibly gratifying. Envy Events came from a need to create and was built on absolute passion and love, with every day that passion only grows. I can honestly say that there is nowhere else I’d rather be. I still immerse myself in every event as though it’s the first, I still stand back in awe with what we have created and I still feel that heart bursting pride when you call and tell me that it couldn’t have been more perfect.

We are a small boutique team and our service reflects that.  We recognise that each event is unique and take pride in providing a service that is completely personalised.   We don’t do “cookie cutter” here and our aim is always to exceed expectations, we can proudly say that we have accomplished that so far.

I hope you enjoy looking through the work my team and I have created and I would love to hear from you to personally discuss your special event.

Completely Covered Live Band

Completely covered is a four piece covers band based in Auckland. If you need to hire a band in Auckland for your next event, you’ve come to the right place! We’re your party entertainment central.

We have a strong set list that spans a wide range of eras, and can be crafted to suit the mood of your event.

We bring all of our own sound, lighting and atmosphere so all you need to do is provide the venue, guests and the dance moves, we’ll do the rest!

Good, reliable wedding bands are hard to find. Don’t worry – we’re a responsible bunch of middle aged dads, so will turn up on time, set up and pack down, and behave and act professionally at all times (it’s what we’d expect our kids to do!).

Sweet As Crêpes

Began in 2007 when an ambitious twelve-year-old girl called Annabel Shepherd set up a stall at the very first Coatesville Market North of Auckland. The name was a play on words incorporating Annie’s own initials.

The single crêpe maker and a queue each week soon grew and multiplied into a small family business.

We specialize in making fresh French crêpes on the spot. Over the years, traditional flavours such as fresh lemon juice and sugar, apple and cinnamon and butter and sugar have been complemented by favourites such as salted caramel, Nutella and banana and berries and cream— giving our offering a distinctly Kiwi twist.

Some people enjoy just watching us; most cannot resist having a taste! We now have a huge following of local crêpe-lovers who seek us out, loyalty cards in hand, to get their crêpe “fix” wherever we are.

A delicious range of sweet and savoury toppings is on offer and we pride ourselves in using the best and freshest ingredients we can find—preferably sourced locally.

We also have several gluten-free options and love creating limited editions for special occasions, themed events and weddings.

From small beginnings, markets, school fairs and family gatherings, we have become the local experts in this field and have now grown into an established business with events each week in Auckland and on the North Shore.

Call or email Lisa Shepherd on 021 67 87 62 or to book your next event or checkout SweetAsCrepes on Facebook to see where we will be popping up next.
