Gymnastics Party Theme Supplies

Do you remember going to gymnastic classes as a child? So much fun!

Tumbling, jumping and climbing make it a popular choice of extra curricular activity for lower primary school aged children, and the perfect party option for this age group too.

For the full experience (and safety of your household items) many gymnastics venues offer party packages on the weekend, making it a great option for catering to larger numbers too. You’ll find many provide a room or separate area (and sometimes tables and chairs) for you to set up and bring your own catering, and they’ll take care of the rest. Too easy!

Here is some inspiration to get you started!:

Regardless of where you host your gymnastics party, we’ve done a little search of our LLC partners for some inspiration and general partyware you might need to help bring it all together for you.

 

Invitations

Get your guests excited with a fun and creative invitation that will have them bouncing with anticipation. I love the idea of including a photo of the birthday boy or girl as a gymnast!

Decorations

If hosting it at a venue, you may be limited to the decorations you can bring in and the allocated time to set up, so stick to some fun balloons and coordinated tableware for a quick and easy set up and clean up. Or if at home, go all out and let your imagination run wild! Choose bright primary colours, pink and gold or even metallics just like a gymnast’s leotard!

A styled table with customised cookies, wrapped chocolates or cupcakes with toppers is also an easy way to achieve your look.

Favours

When all the gymnasts have tumbled themselves tired and it’s time to go home, what better way to say ‘thanks’ and reward them for their outstanding ability, than to award them all them with their own gold medals or trophies! Kids go wild for these and they’re easy enough to find and be added to a goodie bag with a customised cookie, treats or other personalised gifts.

Celebrate unwrapped: personalised name tags

We’ve all been there. When you have a vision in mind but not really sure of how to execute it or bring it all together, or you’re simply stuck on one particular detail.

This was the case with our guest name tags for the recent Celebrate conference – something I knew we needed, but could not get my head around how they could tie in with the rest of the theme.

So you can imagine my relief (and pure joy) when I spoke with Daniella of Eve & Co who understood the concept straight away and with very few details, just ran with it. What she produced was so far from anything that I could have imagined, but so perfect. Exactly why she’s the expert in designing stationary and not me!

The tassels were what grabbed my excitement initially as this wasn’t something we were using elsewhere, but for the name tags they simply worked and turned them into something so much prettier for guests to wear. Topped off with gold glitter and they coordinated beautifully with the rest of our theme.

These were name tags that guests definitely were excited to wear (and some letting me know they would be keeping theirs to reuse !)

Daniella from Eve & Co creates bespoke stationary for all occasions, and also specialises in christening candles too which make beautiful gifts or keepsakes.

When working with numerous suppliers or you simply don’t have a complete brief to provide, it’s essential that those suppliers have the creativity and listening skills to be able to pick up on elements and just run with it. It takes a lot of trust, but after working with Daniella amongst others, it certainly pays off. They are the experts after all!

Thank you so much for all your hard work with this event Eve & Co! Such a small detail, but one that shone brightly on the day.

Celebrate Unwrapped: Furniture and Prop Hire

When it comes to styling an already incredible venue, it’s a fine line between not enough and too much detail. So when planning our recent Celebrate conference at Sydney’s beautiful The Deckhouse, we knew we wanted to showcase the best the industry has to offer, without detracting from the stunning views by going over the top.

You would have already seen the details of how we styled the tables, room decorations and giant lettering for the big day in previous posts, so this week we’d love to share the details of the fabulous lounge area we had set up for guests to enjoy throughout the day using props and furniture from The Original Silver Teapot.  Our vision was to create an area of retreat for the guests where they could take a moment to enjoy the view, chat with each other or simply take in the view whilst processing all that had been learnt during the day.

The Original Silver Teapot

Working with Shelley of Paper Face Party to style an imaginative, creative and whimsical space, furniture and prop items were hired from Sydney’s The Original Silver Teapot, working with Deb and her team to bring our vision to life. I think you’ll agree they nailed the brief, finding the perfect balance and cohesion with our surrounds and conference theme.

It certainly created a gorgeous talking point for when guests entered the rooms!

Specialising in traditional High Teas, Bridal Showers, Kitchen Teas and Weddings, Deb and her team at The Original Silver Teapot provide a complete suite of styling services, furniture and prop hire plus workshops for Brides. If we had room for her vintage caravan, Sylvia we would have loved to have used her – but I’m sure that would have been crossing the ‘overdone’ line I was talking about for this particular event!

A huge thank you to Deb and Shelley for this beautiful space where so many collaborations, conversations and big ideas were had during the day.

Batman Party Supplies

Ka-Pow! Splat! Oooff!

How cool were the pop culture Batman comics back in the day? Like all good Superhero’s, he’s morphed over time but never really gone out of style, making a Batman party a popular choice for children’s birthday parties of all ages, and an easy one to source and style for.

Whether you choose the bold and bright colours of the comics as your inspiration, or colour blocked black and white or yellow, the options are endless with this theme, as are the supplies available to pull it all together. So we’ve rounded up a few finds from our LLC vendors to give you a head start.

 

Batman Party Invitations

When I think of Batman, his iconic bat signal instantly comes to mind, as does a lot of black and the comic book speech bubbles. Of course not everyone is expected to be Batman, so you can also  extend the invitation to all Superhero’s (or Villains) with a more general superhero invite:

Tableware

To ensure Batman plays the lead role in his own show, keep the tableware to a minimum of two colours, or use coordinated plates, napkins and cups for the comic book effect.

Cake, cookies and toppers

If you’ve predominately used block colours to decorate, cake toppers, the cake itself and custom cookies are a great way to incorporate the Batman logo into your theme, and likewise if you’ve chosen the comic approach, as it will ensure Batman is still in the spotlight.
