Ladybug theme

One for all the little ladybug’s in our lives this sweet theme is perfect if you are after a girly theme which has a great vibrant colour palette of red, black and green rather than the traditional pink or pastel colours! Of course you can add in pinks or yellows into the colour mix for this theme as well if you wish.

It’s also a great theme if you want a garden theme but something different to Woodlands or Fairies.

Hope you enjoy this selection !

Rainbow Theme Party Supplies

Rainbows remind us all of dreams, hopes and great things to come so no wonder they have become a popular theme recently for boys and girls celebrations! Such a positive & bright theme and an easy one to put together because you can mix and match a range of colours of any item to create create your rainbow effect.

However in this post I have mainly featured items which already have the rainbow colour palette.

To put together something unique, combine other cute items in with the rainbows such as clouds, unicorns, umbrellas or a pot of gold!

Sweet Shoppe Theme

What could be sweeter than a sweet shop party for your darling little one? Such a fun theme with lots of beautiful colours, candies, candy jars and more!

You could set this party up based on a traditional lolly store, a girly sweet shop with pastel colours or a bright modern candy store! Dream up different ways of displaying/serving the candies or treats (I’ve provided some unbreakable options in this post too!) and try not to eat too much of the candy before the day of the actual party!

Hope you enjoy….

The soft colours of this bunting would help create a pretty feel to your candy shop:

Or try this garland for a fun look!

Spring smart garland - P is for Party

Love this bunting as you can pick/choose which flag designs you like when you hang it up and can decide the order of the patterns as well. So if one of the designs don’t work into your theme you can leave it out:

Paper Eskimo bunting flags - Born to Party

These sweet paper chains can be easily made yourself with this kit of pre-cut paper which is adhesive and makes creating a unique and fun decoration easy!

Candy Hues Paper linkits, precut strips with adhesive to make a paper chain - Linkits

Sweet Treats

You could make a variety of coloured cookies with this sweets cookie cutter. They would look great on the table or could be used to make some cookie take home gifts:

Scallop cupcake toppers - Twiggi

Also loving the yellow and white combination of these cuties:

The scalloped look of this cake stand would work in so well with a sweet shop theme, besides the fact that it is just gorgeous and could be used for many parties to come!

Now onto some items to display and serve your candy if you are having a candy buffet.

I have included some glassware as well as some unbreakable options as well, so depending on the age of your guests you can choose what is most appropriate! If most of the little one’s are very very young and it is mainly the adults you are having the dessert table for, then you can’t go past the beautiful glass jars for a classic sweet shop look!

However there are still fun options for displaying your sweets if you are worried about the kids around the candy jars!

First off I love these selections for a traditional sweet shop style:

Glass ribbed jars, set of 3 - Sweet Style

 

Parnella Glass Jar - Sweet Style

 

Ryder Candy Jar - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Bormioli Rocco preserving jar - Peters of Kensington

Just adore these selections of elegant and modern candy jars:

Tatiana Candy Jar - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Samantha candy jar - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Chrissy glass jar - Sweet Style

Emmy glass jar - Sweet Style

If you are after some more affordable options, Ikea has a few simple but cute candy jars available such as this one:

Mogden jar with lid - Ikea

Or these sets of 3 are another great idea:

Set of 3 Apothecary jars - Little Big Company

 

Candy Jar set of 3 - Piece of Cake Parties & Celebration

For easy candy access (perfect for kids who you think can handle the glass but you still want to make it a bit easier for them) these candy bowl options are great!

Glass bowl small - Sweet Little Birdy

 

Myles Candy Bowl - Sharnel Dollar Designs

Onto some fun unbreakable options and as you’ll see there are plenty of cute ways you can display your sweets/treats which are safe for tiny hands!

Love this turntable which can be used after the party too, to store all sorts of items!

Pink turntable with buckets - Sweet Little Birdy

Dress up these cones with some pretty paper:

Paper cone cup - Mon Tresor

These tin buckets which come in a range of colours (but I love this colour!) can be used to display lollipops as shown, as well as other treats:

12cm bucket - Lily Chic Events

Icecream cups and cupcake wrappers could also be used if you have a smaller group and hence less volume of lollies to serve

Dixie Cups - Sweet Little Birdy

These sweet melamine bowls come in such lovely colours and can be part of your kitchenware after the party!

Miniamo pastel melamine bowls - Belinda James

Another simple option is a tray such as this from Ikea which is easy for the little one’s to access and useful to display a few different lollies:

Krus jar with lid - Ikea

These colourful trays would look great for serving your other treats on, displaying cake pops or your drinks:

Smula tray - Ikea

To make it even more fun to serve the candy, try one of these cute scoops or tongs:

Bamboo tong - Sharnel Dollar Designs

Card holders - Occasion by Design

 

Elegant tags - Sweet Style

Special Themed decorations/ideas:

Another lovely way to display your lollies is to place some of the jars on this tiered stand – wouldn’t they just look even sweeter?

Pinwheels are SO cute for any theme, and these pinwheels (available in other colours too) could be used as extra decoration on your sweet table for a fun look:

Tangerine pinwheels - Paper Polaroid (US)

To create a sweet shop feel, perhaps use a welcome sign such as this printable one and place in a pretty frame:

Or for a more traditional feel this vintage shop sign:

Open & closed metal sign - Lark

This bright chalkboard sticker could also be used to write a welcome sign or birthday message!

Grape chalkboard stickers - Giggleme Designs

Love this print! I’ll happily follow it’s advice =)

Keep Calm Print - Poster Pop

If you are creating different levels on your sweet table, this colourful wrapping paper would look great wrapped around the boxes you might be using to place your other candy jars on:

Superhero Theme

If your child would love to have Super powers a Superhero party is the perfect chance for them to at least pretend for a day, that they do!

As you can see from the printable designs below – a generic superhero theme or one based on a comic book look, are popular rather than only a specific character (ie superman, batman etc) party.

Remember to visit the Party Directory section of this site in the midst of planning for this party to find all the items and suppliers you need! You can view my PINTEREST board for this theme here.

Aeroplane Theme

‘Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away….’! This sweet Aeroplane theme is so cute and perfect for little boys!

Let images of planes (vintage or modern), clouds, pilots, wings, airports, luggage & travel inspire you!

You could use a blue/white/red colour palette however I love some recent Aeroplane parties (see the end of this post) which have used the unique colour scheme of blue/white/orange and so I’ve incorporated some of my choices around this selection. However some of our previous posts such as the Nautical Theme & Fire engine theme have cute ideas for red decor.

You can have a lot of fun with this theme with the use of boarding passes, a luggage claim area (where the kids can collect their meal boxes or party favours), paper aeroplane making activities and more! I hope this collection below inspires your ideas and sets you on a fun journey of planning for this theme.

Invitations & Printables

To launch this post, here are a few printables and invitation collections which I thought were really cute for this theme:

Hanging Decorations

The Aeroplane theme is perfect for hanging decorations of clouds and flying planes and you can really be creative in creating a sky effect which you can then transfer into the bedroom/nursery after the party for a cute style:

Hang a bunch of these blue paper fans together for a blue sky backdrop that you could then mix the white pom pom’s into as well!

An aeroplane theme compliments a travel decorations/items as well, and these unique notebooks could be used for the little one’s to obtain stamps  during the party (for example when they they complete a party game). If you wanted you could even have different  “Country” stations set up at each game area, so they are “flying” to different countries for each game and receive their stamp on arrival! These notebooks would also make great party favours too!
