About Us


Dara & Joy

Despite over 14 years experience as a successful programme manager for large-scale transportation projects, Omoniyi Giwa has always had a passion for event planning. Around her corporate projects, she would often find herself the unofficial party planner for family events and special occasions for friends. 

What was a hobby that she enjoyed in contrast to her day job, became the inspiration for Dara & Joy after planning her 4-year old son’s birthday party. 

I was working full-time and trying to organise a birthday party for my son. It was a struggle trying to make the arrangements; endless phone-calls and chasing up – to ensure everything went to plan. I realised that many women must find themselves in the same position, and that I could use my project management skills to offer this as a service.”

Certainly, Omoniyi’s hunch was right. Catering to hosts who wish to enjoy their parties while knowing every detail is expertly managed, Dara & Joy offers the precision and attention-to-detail required for massive corporate projects combined with creativity, style and fun. 

“Dara & Joy allows me to bring all my skill sets together while also allowing me to truly love what I do – creating unique, fun and memorable parties!”
