Balloons have well and truly taken over the party scene and Balloon Garlands are the perfect way to create that wow factor at your celebration and kids party. Whether you are wanting to create a party backdrop or dress up a dessert or cake table, a garland is certainly the way to go and Favor Lane have a gorgeous range of balloon decor to choose from that we’re pleased to give you a sneak peek of tonight!
Now thanks to the One Styling Party DIY Balloon Garland Kits, you can easily create your own beautiful garland in under an hour.
The DIY Balloon Garland kits from Favor Lane are available in 14 colourways, each of which includes all you need to make a 2 metre garland.
They have recently introduced matching Balloon Bouquets which include 12 x 30cm balloons which can be filled with helium. Half of the balloons included in the kits are double layered (one balloon inside another) to create a unique and appealing colour.
Inside each the kit, you will receive:
12 x 30cm balloons (including a minimum of 3 confetti filled)
36 x Mini 12cm balloons
A Hand (air) pump
A balloon decorating strip
Step by step instructions for assembly
If you are wanting to add other colours to your garland, they sell individual 12cm Mini Balloons and 30cm Standard Size balloons in a broad range of colours from just 0.40c each.
STYLING TIP: The addition of 2-3 of their Jumbo (60, 75 or 90cm) Balloons will really take the garland to the next level. A touch of foliage will also add a beautiful finishing touch.

Favor Lane suggest inflating your balloons the day/evening before your event. This will take approximately 20 minutes. When you are ready to start assembling the garland, lay out the balloon decorating strip and begin inserting the tied balloons into the pre punched holes. It is best to alternate the direction of which you push the balloons through however our packaged instructions will explain this further. Allow at least 30 minutes to assemble the garland.

It’s always exciting when a new wave of party themes take over our Instagram feed, and right now one of the hottest trends is an unlikely one! Swans, flamingos and unicorns have had their time….now it’s time for the Llama!
Better known for carrying backpacks through the Andes (or Emperor Kuzco in The Emperor’s New Groove), the humble llama has exploded onto the party scene, bringing with it plenty of colour and festivity for any occasion.

Cute, furry and never short of some bright accessories, a llama inspired party can be a lot of fun to put together with a little imagination. This theme could be mixed in with cactus partyware and bright fiesta party supplies or turned pretty with pastels – so we’ve showcased a mix of both to give you ideas of what you could use for a Llama party!

A few years ago when I first started planning my own kids parties….the range of partyware was limited to polka dots, stripes and chevrons. Now the kids party scene is bursting with fun partyware and “Party! she said” newly renovated online store has a huge range of Licensed Character parties, Themed parties and Party bundles which allow customers to pick and choose and stay right on trend with designer partyware !
They have so much to offer and if you can’t see it, just ask and they will be happy to try to source it for you.
“Party! she said” is now an online mother and daughters venture who used to be called Fantasy Kids Parties. Starting way back in 1985 it started as a catering and party styling service when the daughters were very young and it was a relatively new idea and because they loved to party, that’s all they knew and we love all the ranges they are now stocking:
Trending is their new stock from Daydream Society in the USA and Glitz & Glam a very versatile range just coming through their store now – suited to adult celebrations, baby showers and Christenings.
Their bundles are varied and they can also bundle up a pack of partyware that is just right for you.
Party! she said is a small business and small business is such a lovely way to feel like family, which is what they try to make their customers feel. Old fashioned customer service, but mixed with an online presence! Based in Adelaide they offer shipping Australia wide. Party! She Said is on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
They also have a range of fun and stylish decorations and backdrops:
As well as licensed partyware and a range of party supplies to suit popular kids themes such as a ballerina party:
They have also recently launched a new venture “Lollygraze” in Adelaide metro which you can book via their website as well as “Abelia Flower Crown” workshops with information also on their website with the aim to offer flower crowns to purchase and also in DIY kits in the future!
As you can see – their range is bright and stylish and they have so much happening! They are definitely a store you want to involve when you’re party planning for your next kids party or celebration! So head to their website now to start your planning!
There isn’t a kid I know who hasn’t marvelled at a Superhero and their incredible powers, and thanks to the talented folk at Pixar, Marvel, Disney and the like, Superheros have morphed beyond the traditional stereotypes, making them more appealing than ever to both boys and girls.
The best part? Superheros make great kids party themes!
Superhero Party Inspiration, Sweet Heavenly Events, Sydney
Not only is a Superhero party a popular theme for kids, it’s also popular with parents as it’s super easy to pull together. Take inspiration from the Superhero stylists and go beyond the primary colours with girly pastels or monochrome black and white, and insert some comic book fun with speech bubbles, city landscapes and monograms to create something special – maybe even your own Superhero! We’ve also included some traditional red/blue/white superhero partyware in this blog for you if you love the classic look!
As always – the items showcased are all from our wonderful network members that are also listed in our Directory section of our website!
