Birthday Party Supplies 101
Invitations - check! Balloons - check! Cake - check! Hmm... Isn’t there something I’m forgetting?
Planning a birthday party can be complicated. Pink Frosting, Australia’s number one online party shop, has taken the stress out of party planning by creating this list of party essentials.
Before you begin buying party decorations and jazzing up your living room, decide whether or not there will be a theme. Pink and white disco party? Black and red pirate party? Once this decision has been made, colour-coordinating your party supplies will be easy.
Invitations - these need to be written and sent out early. Party Invitations come in a multitude of designs in every colour of the rainbow - pretty ones, sophisticated ones, and downright adorable ones. You can even let someone else do this hard part and order Personalised Party Invitations! Get matching stickers and Thank You cards to create a perfect finishing touch to your party theme.
Room decorations - You might choose to go minimalistic here, with a few carefully placed streamers and balloons. On the other hand, you might like to go all out with bunches of balloons tied to sparkly balloon weights; you could drape streamers and birthday banners across the room, hang some colourful swirls from the ceiling, place some party lanterns across the windows, and sprinkle shiny scatterfetti across every surface. Read our Party Decorations 101 article to learn some great tips for creating the perfect party space.
Food accessories - plates, cups, napkins, bowls, cutlery. Maybe some funky straws, too? Grab a few Bubble Acrylic Dessert Bowls in shades of rose, aqua and lime and fill with lollies, biscuits and fresh fruit.
Table centrepiece - in the centre of the table, surrounded by bowls of treats, stands the centrepiece in all its glory. Choose a glittery balloon extravaganza, a beautiful pink princess character, or a fantastic pirate display. Pink Frosting have centrepieces to match almost any theme you can think of.
Party hats and/or costumes - is it a circus theme? Pass out some clown noses. Is it a princess theme? Grab some sparkly tiaras. Or for something simple try traditional party hats in every colour imaginable.
Cake basics - the pièce de résistance! Choose a baking pan. Fairytale castle, dinosaur or pirate ship? Grab a decorating kit, and perhaps some extra sugar pearls to scatter across the top of the icing. Or maybe you’d like a Cinderella cake topper? Choose a cake stand to serve it on. Finally, the candles! Fairies? Ponies? Jungle animals? The possibilities are endless...
Lolly/gift bags - party bags, treat boxes or personalised candy jars? Will you fill them with traditional lollies and treats? Or tiny gifts of stickers, puzzles and toys? Maybe you should grab some cake slice boxes too - so the guests can take a slice of that amazing cake home and marvel at its deliciousness!
