Creating Fun Balloon Table Centrepieces & Decorations


I love balloons. They are cost-effective and fun decorations that brighten up any room and these days you can find a balloon to suit any occasion. For my kids birthday parties I organise to have an inflated balloon for each child that is attending and secure them to the balloon weights and at the end of the party I then hand the balloons out to the party guests as they leave. The only trouble I have had is chasing the dad’s away from them (helium balloons are like catnip for dads – they just got to try the chipmunk voice).   more »

Peter Rabbit Party Ideas


Happy Birthday Peter Rabbit!!!!! Celebrate the 110th anniversary of the tale of Peter Rabbit at your own child’s party this year with the classic Beatrix Potter range from pinkfrosting! Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree……... We have all grown up with the wonderful characters that Beatrix Potter created and it is so nice that the longevity of Peter Rabbit and his friends can be enjoyed from generation to generation.   more »

Fun at the Fair Party Ideas


Decorate the area with streamers, bunting, fairy lights (not only around the room but along the bridal table, under a white tablecloth) and paper lanterns in various shapes, sizes and colours. Display vintage fair ground posters around the room on easels. Have a balloon stand near the entrance and as the guests arrive, they are each given a bright coloured balloon and party popper. Use bright table cloths of pink, blue, green, red, yellow, orange, gold and black. For the table centrepieces make your own with Styrofoam ball/block in which you set a bouquet of little balloons and party pin wheels.   more »

Crystal Caves Gemstone Party Ideas


Kids love shiny, sparkly things, expensive and precious things. They also love dirt, digging and collecting their own little treasures. If you happen to have a budding gemmologist in your house, why not make their next birthday party a gemmologist field day? Even better, make your child’s birthstone the centre of the party theme, therefore decorating using the gemstones colour. For example, May’s birthstone is the Emerald, a gem that by looking at its inclusions can determine the mine and country which it came from (Columbia, Afghanistan, Brazil, Zambia and America), and to make them a vivid green they are oiled and as such will need to be re-oiled every few years.   more »

Peter Pan & the Pirates Party Ideas


Make the party food bright and colourful, but call it “Invisible Food” like in the movie Hook with Robin Williams. The Lost Boys sit down to what looks like an empty table and using their imagination come up with the most amazing and fun food which they then turn into a food fight. Set the table with this fantastic Pirate Ship centre piece and on each end of the table the Jolly Roger decorations.   more »

Mermaid Party Ideas


For an upcoming girls 6th birthday party why not take a journey down into Atlantis where the mermaids live and let your little girl and her friends be mythical mermaids for a day? Australia’s #1 Party Shop can help you make a Splash with their range of Mermaid inspired birthday products. From mermaid invitations, or make your own using Pink Frosting’s Martha Stewart craft collection. When I think of mermaids I think of sparkles – lots of glitter and underwater treasures. Create an underwater Mermaid Cove decorated with blue and green streamers hanging down. Fill a treasure chest piñata with sweets and trinkets (a pirate treasure map or two and some princess trinkets) for the mermaids to watch over.   more »

School Formal Party & Decoration Ideas


A bittersweet moment in life for students is the graduation and formals. Whilst excited they are about to embark on the next stage – graduating from primary school, year ten and year twelve. It could also be tinged with sadness as some of their friends may be off to attend other schools or move to another location. This was the case for me, being an Army brat.   more »

Mystical Winter Wonderland Party Ideas


As a child one of my many favourite collections of stories came from the imagination of C.S. Lewis and his Chronicles of Narnia. A place filled with strange and wonderful creatures and a battle waged between a great and wise lion named Aslan and an evil White Witch who sought to control Narnia and all who lived there. The first book called The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe starts the adventure of four children, siblings Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy who are sent off with all the other children to live out the Second World War in the relative safety of the country side. They end up at a country manor owned by a Professor Kirke.   more »

Peter Rabbit 2nd Birthday Party Ideas


Looking through the great range of party themes on the Pink Frosting website I was excited to see one of my own childhood favourites now in stock ready for parents to snap up for their little ones’ birthday party. What am I talking about? When I was little, a wonderful and imaginative author, illustrator and conservationist by the name of Beatrix Potter was introduced to me by my mum. The stories of Peter Rabbit and his siblings Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Tom Kitten, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs Tiggy Winkle, Samuel Whiskers and my own close to the heart forever favourite The Tailor of Gloucester.   more »

Start Your Engines Racing Cars Party Ideas


Little boys love cars. They are only too happy to tell you all about Roary the Racing Car and Lightening McQueen and his buddy Mater (as in “Tow Mater”). When my brother James was four years old he would go everywhere with a collection of matchbox cars stuffed in his pants pockets – so many that he could not walk or sit down properly. In his little hands he would hold the two favourite cars for that day. Our cousin Brendan had an even bigger car collection and when they were together all you could hear were two four year old boys making car sounds as they raced their best cars around the floor of the bedroom. It must be something that is ingrained in boys – the attraction to wheels, engines and loud revs. The faster they go, the cooler it is and Disney Pixar got it when they made the movie Cars and Cars 2. Even I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised how cool Cars was when we saw it at the movies (we had no kids at that stage).   more »

Rainbow Party Ideas


Have you ever found yourself wondering where the Rainbow ends, and what would you find if you could reach it? As a kid I would get excited whenever I saw a rainbow and I would wonder where it ended and if there truly was a pot of gold or something more. I loved the children’s cartoon Rainbow Brite, and yes I have a Rainbow Brite t-shirt that I still wear despite being a 30 year old woman. What is not to love about Rainbows? Bright, pretty and a perfect theme for a twelve year old girl’s birthday party!   more »

Weird Science Party Ideas


When it comes to planning kids parties, some of the best ideas come from movies. Take the film Flubber for example. A story about a scientist who creates this incredible green goop that bounces about and sets off a wild goose chase. What a great idea for a ten year olds birthday party? A science theme party where instead of playing pin the tail on the donkey or pass the parcel, they can make their own experiments and learn weird and wonderful things. I’m talking about bubbling volcanos, make your own flubber, jumping coins and kid-friendly lava lamps. The kids will love to sit and try their hand at being mad scientists and the looks on their faces when they make something jump, bubble, burp and stretch will be priceless. A quick search on line can bring up plenty of easy, kid safe science experiments that can be made from items in your own home.   more »

Hello Kitty Party Ideas


So the starlets love her and she is often seen adorning their clothes and accessories. Mariah Carey has her rider (performance demands) set out in that her room must be decorated entirely with her and has an admirable collection of all her products. Who am I writing about? Well she is a little white kitten who is known as Hello Kitty! Next to the rich and famous, Hello Kitty is also loved by little girls the world over. My daughter is a Hello Kitty fan and has a little collection of Kitty dolls and pictures.   more »
