Special Events and Party Planning

Special Events and Party Planning

Trying to track down the perfect DJ, entertainer, venue or caterer for a party is time-consuming and frustrating. Unless, of course, you’re me! Don’t spend your little one’s (or your) special day worrying about whether there are enough balloons (or canapes, fizz, chairs, serviettes and candles). From venues to menus, music to magicians, dance floors to doing the dishes, we make it all happen perfectly. We’re happy to do as much or as little as you’d like us to (we can plan and organise the entire function, or just arrange the cake!), and go as big or as low-key as you wish.

Errand Running

Errand Running

Even the smallest errand takes valuable time out of your day you simply may not have. Fortunately, we do! We’re perfect at picking up pooches from pet parlours and popping parcels in the post. Plus, of course, any other errand at all that you might need taking care of. We can also recommend service providers for dry cleaning and other services if you’re not sure who to use. Use us on an ad hoc basis, or have us on standby for whenever you may need something done.

If you need a reliable, trustworthy and certified tradesperson, we will find them for you! From plumbing and tiling to painting, electrical work, building and just about everything else, we know a guy! (Or a gal!)

Even at the last minute, we are on Standby to arrange and execute all the strings which need to be tied together.

Packages

Standby offers three standard packages, however every client’s package can be tailormade around their needs

(Please note: some services may not currently be available due to Covid-19 restrictions).

Entry

On Standby, as and when you need us.

R500

Per hour Ad hoc / as required

Could you do with another hour (or two) in your day? Or someone to “be you” when you can’t? Our Entry Level Service is perfect for those crazy days when you know you’re just not going to have enough time to do it all.

So, let us be there to take delivery of your new washing machine while you’re doing something far more fun, glamourous or important. Give us your grocery shopping list, because we know you’ve got wall-to-wall Zoom calls all afternoon. Or allow us to arrange and plan your child’s party while you work, so all you have to do is arrive on the day and take all the credit!

You may not need us all the time, but you definitely need us!

Executive

15 hours of right-hand-person help per month (excluding weekends). You can spread these out as you like throughout the month – they don’t have to be consecutive.

R9500

Per month

Imagine having 15 hours a month – every month – where you don’t have to sweat the small stuff? Or even the big stuff! Ten hours a month where you can simply get on with your life, while we do all the stuff you can’t, or don’t want to do.

For those 15 hours, we’ll take care of all the niggly, boring, stressful tasks that would otherwise either not get done, or get done at the expense of something you would far rather be doing.

Wouldn’t you love the peace of mind of knowing you have someone available every month to help you out when you need a hand?

(Please note: Planning ahead is a necessity, and T’s & C’s apply)

Elite

On Standby 24/7/365

R19000

Per month

With this package you never have to worry. About anything. Ever. Geyser bursts in the middle of the night? Call us. It’s Sunday afternoon and you desperately need another ticket to that restaurant opening? We’re on it. Need last minute changes to flights or hotel bookings? No problem.

With Standby’s Elite Package, we’re on standby all day, every day. Whatever you need, whenever you need it, we’ll take care of it for you.

Give your life freedom and structure so you can be more organised, more relaxed and, well, just more!
