About US

A little bit about me

Hello, my name is Fredrika, and I am the lady behind By Ballinger.

With a mixed working background between hospitality and social care, I always had a love for creating, planning and hosting! After re training in Events Management and Business I decided the best way to show off my true vision and eye for detail was to create By Ballinger, an event styling business to create true unique and special moments for every occasion.

A lover of food and vintage, afternoon tea is where it all took off. I mean is there anything more lovely than spending the day indulging in afternoon tea treats, sipping prosecco and enjoying it all served in delicate vintage crockery!?

I am here to help bring your vision to life ~ whatever the occasion, I can’t wait to help you create something truly magical!
