TO say Periwinkles Party Place, which opened in January, is kid friendly is an understatement.

The business has themed parties for children aged three to 12, a cafe and a studio, which hosts yoga, dance classes and breastfeeding classes among others.

Owner Lisa Perry uses Pinterest to stay ahead of latest trends in kids’ parties and has a “list a mile long of new themes” she can’t wait to try.

She also keeps an eye on what other party businesses around the world are doing.

“Diversity is paramount to being modern and succeeding in today’s small business world and we are lucky enough to have an incredible space that we are using to its fullest potential,” she said.

“To be modern you need to stay fresh and keep offering different things, whether that’s events, food, and workshops, whatever keeps people looking forward to what’s happening next.”

Lisa said social media had incredible power in Mandurah and she uses it to connect directly with customers and respond immediately.

“Because we’re always doing something different, social media gives me the freedom to create content on the fly, post a picture of the gorgeous party theme we just set up, or the delicious cup of coffee I just made,” she said.
