Our Story


Lizzi and Gaby first met at a neighborhood playgroup in 2009 when their kids were just toddlers. A few weeks later, Lizzi spotted Gaby waiting to cross the street with her son in tow.

After a quick “Hola!” the pair made plans to head to the zoo the very next day. And when neither cancelled on the impromptu playdate, both knew the other was the type to stick to her plans!

In the years following the start of their friendship (and after a couple more kids!), Lizzi and Gaby discovered their favorite thing to do together was plan birthday parties for their children, from creating unique and beautiful invitations and decorations to inventing party games. Lizzi had the big ideas, while Gaby’s eye for detail and design background made them happen. The pair finally got to work on Bang & Boom in 2014, turning their hobby into a business one that they love to do together.

After all, a party would be nothing without good friends.
