Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashlie Fisher and Amy Williams.
Hi Ashlie and Amy, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Hey! We are Ashlie and Amy, founders of the Orange Social. We are a local mom-owned business, curating special events and pop-up picnics in and around the Dunedin area. A couple years ago we found ourselves a little group of friends where we would take turns hosting dinners, rotating out whose house it would be at. It was during this time where we realized the importance of community/friendship/being social. Then, the pandemic hit. And while our gatherings were few and far between, we still had each other to lean on.
Fast forward a bit, we realized that we wanted to make our love of hosting and design something we share with others in the community. We could combine what we love to do and help others make memories by curating events and picnics locally!
We absolutely love what we do. It brings us such joy to bring ideas of clients to life and create lasting memories.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Being open and honest in a business with a close friend is a must for us. Keeping that line of communication open is crucial. We are also finding a good mom life/work-life balance. I know a lot of moms can feel us on that.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
The Orange Social is Dunedin’s social supplier. We want to be your one-stop shop when it comes to making your event come to life, whether that’s a pop-up picnic on the beach to celebrate your anniversary or your one year’s old’s birthday bash. We can handle everything from tablescapes to design to balloons. Be sure to follow us on our Instagram page for more exciting news to come on what The Orange Social has to offer.
What does success mean to you?
Success for us is our clients walking into the sunset happy. This business for us is about curating an event that makes for a memorable experience. That is a huge success for us.
