All About Sugar Coated Mama

Hi I’m Sarah, I’m an over the top sweet tooth, I’m an Aussie country girl who used to race dirt bikes, I’m a big believer in living life with a truck load of passion, and I’m Sugar Coated Mama… For a list of Sugar Coated Mama services, click here.

Established on my birthday in November 2012, Sugar Coated Mama came about from my insatiable desire to sugar coat anything and everything, even a meat pie if I could! I’ve worked for over 15 years in Public Relations and Events for the TV industry, so sugar coating is certainly an acquired talent!

I live with my hard working hubby and little girl Mia (with a new bubba on the way) in a stunning part of the world just out of Sydney. We have the beach on one side and lake on the other, and as long as I’m walking distance to chocolate, life is sweet!

In between tuckshop duty, taxi runs and curbing my new Instagram obsession, I love to fuse my passion for sweets, parties and beautiful things together to create an unforgettable celebration for you.

In addition to featuring my own styling and events, I also showcase my favourite parties, the hottest party styling trends around the world, DIY ideas and my crazy antics on my blog, making Sugar Coated Mama your inspiration board for the perfect soiree!

You can also catch me on Channel 9’s TODAY SHOW teaching Karl a thing or two about party planning and DIY ideas once a month. So if you love parties as much as I do, visit my Sugar Coated Mama Youtube channel for more party tips as featured on TODAY.

“Sarah O is the most fantastic person to work with. She has boundless energy, is highly professional and motivated, meticulously organised, knows just about everybody there is to know, and has an enthusiasm for her clients brands that creates an excitement that is infectious. And all done with a smile! There is simply no one better at what she does. But be warned…she drives a car at the same speed she runs her business…like a formula one driver!”

“People often ask why there are so many people in The Chaser. The real answer is that it was the only way we could keep up with all the media interviews Sarah Osmotherly would line up for us. She was relentless and knows everyone in the land, one of kind.”

Melanie & Shaun Yeo
Bride & Groom

“Thank you for creating our amazing dessert and sweets buffet for our wedding, the table was PERFECT! It was exactly what we had imagined but even more beautiful!”

And of course the sweets tasted divine! All of our food choices were included along with a few extra surprises! The sweets were so professionally made but still had the home made feel. The table truly was the feature at our wedding reception, everyone commented on how they had not seen any table as beautiful & we thought so too.

Sarah you were so friendly and lovely to deal with and it put us at ease to know you were just as excited as us to be designing a pretty dessert table.

Thanks again Sarah & to all the suppliers, “you are wonderful!”

Live the sweet life

I believe whole heartedly that life is for our enjoyment and learning, to find our purpose and to Live the Sweet Life!

I feel very blessed for the sweet life I have, but like everyone, it takes hardwork, resilience, patience, long suffering, love and passion to find and keep the sweetness.

My husband dropped a bomb on me a few years into our marriage and said he wanted to pursue his dream of being a doctor, I was shocked, he was old (27 was old back then) and I was pregnant! But knowing the determination in his eyes, I jumped on the medical band wagon, swapped roles and spent many years as the only income earner. Thankfully the sometimes impossible journey is over and he is now a much loved family doctor. Our family has been so blessed because he followed his dream, he is an incredible man.

Gratefully I was then able to take a much needed sabbatical from my PR business in early 2011 to spend more time with my beautiful family. I loved my career as a Publicist, but trading the stilettos for flip flops and walking the red carpet for walking my little girl to school has been a life changing decision, I have never been happier. Life really is about enjoying the simple things.

I fell in love with being a full time mother and housewife, which surprised everyone including myself! I started baking and styling blissfully sweet memories in the kitchen at every opportunity and designed friend’s weddings and parties in my spare time. It became clear I had found what truly makes me come alive! So I hung up my PR hat, put on my Sweetstylista apron and enter stage left Sugar Coated Mama! I love it because I can mostly work from home, have balance in my life and get daily joy from the things I’m passionate about.

So go on my friends, take up the courage to LIVE THE SWEET LIFE, no matter what comes your way…
