Construction boss launches party planning and events company

Nicola Millward

A Nottinghamshire construction boss has officially launched a home parties and events planning business.

Lollipop Luxury Parties is the brainchild of Nicola Millward, the managing director of Millward consulting engineers.

Since the soft launch in November 2020 the company has hosted over 90 parties. It now employs a team of 11 and it is preparing to move its operations to a 5,000 sq ft warehouse facility in Colwick’s industrial estate.

Lollipop Luxury Parties offers a selection of parties at home or in a venue for clients of all ages including date nights, teepee slumber parties, dome hire, glamping experiences and more.

Millward said: “What started as a passion project for me during the lockdown has turned into a successful venture and I’m encouraged to see that the demand for quality party experiences in the home continues to grow. Whilst quite different to my day-to-day role at Millward Consulting Engineers, I’ve always enjoyed creating beautiful parties for my daughter and organising events and felt that this was the perfect creative outlet for me during both the lock down and a period of personal growth.

“I have ambitious plans for the company and I’m already proud of what we’ve achieved. We have been celebrating milestone after milestone, the most recent being the purchase of a new warehouse facility that we are currently transforming into a creative hub for both Lollipop Luxury Parties and as a base for members of the local small business community. Supporting other businesses, especially women in business, is a key goal for me.”

The company says it mission is to be the East Midland’s “most imaginative party company” and already claims to offer the widest selection of teepee party themes as well as sell- out seasonal specials. Upcoming experiences include an Ibiza Party and a Glastonbury Glamping Festival.
