Hi! My name is Janelle. Owner and designer of Pink Hippo Party (formally known as Pink Hippo Boutique). I was born and raised in Ohio and moved to Georgia in 2003. I am a huge and I mean huge Buckeye fan! I love college football in general but my Buckeye games are what I live for on Saturdays! ;)
I also love to sew! This is a new found love and passion of mine. In February 2012 I lost my strong and courageous mother to breast cancer. She was my best friend and I have struggled with her loss but found a creative outlet in sewing. She gave me her sewing basket and some of her old books and I am hoping to open my own boutique very soon. Be on the lookout for my grand opening!
I have two children who are my inspiration for this business. My son is going to be 8 soon and my daughter just turned 5 and started kindergarten. I also have a fur-baby named Finley. He is an English Cream Goldendoodle who is loving and silly...just like my other two! LOL.
Anyway...How I got started making party items was because of son. When he turned a year old I could not find any invitations that I liked for his party. I searched everywhere. The only ones I could find where really expensive and we were on a tight budget. So after I settled on something I decided that I did not want to do that again so I started my own business. I have always loved children's parties so it seemed very fitting.
Pink Hippo was officially opened in 2009 and although we have made many changes since then we have continued to grow to meet our clients needs and wants. I love what I do and most importantly I am able to be with my children as they grow.
Thank you to all my wonderful customers over the years for helping Pink Hippo
become what it is today. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
My two little hippos!
