It may have been released over 12 months ago, but the hit movie TROLLS is here to stay in the land of parties! And at home on DVD just quietly too – such a great movie!
The colour, hair, characters and messages make this is fantastic kids party theme – just channel your inner Princess Poppy and go all out we say. We’ve found some great items from our LLC Vendors to help get the party started (cue music).

Now all that’s left is the fun tunes of the soundtrack, and you have yourself one VERY colourful and happy Trolls party! Hug time!
Inspiration for a kids party theme can come from anywhere! Sometimes if your child is old enough they can tell you what theme they would like. However if they are little (or perhaps indecisive) you may need more ideas – whether it be from looking online at parties, invitation designs or even cakes and desserts!
Today I am sharing some amazing cookies from Flyawaypineapple to inspire you with some popular kids themes. Rhian’s amazing cookie creations can be posted Australia wide and are perfect for kids parties as you will see.
Summer party themes:
With the warmer months coming up around the corner, now is the time to be dreaming up inspiration for all those summer parties! You can’t go wrong with bright colours and fruity themes as well water-related themes for that time of the year!:
Popular themes featuring teepees, cactus and donuts have been high on trend this year, along with unicorns, carousels, modern safari and mermaids! The advantage of picking a theme such as this is that it is much more easier to source partyware and decor to suit:
Then of course there are all the much-loved parties based around specific characters, toys and movies that your child loves! Simply seeing what your child loves to play with or read or watch will give you inspiration for a theme such as this!:
Themes for older kids
For kids 8+ it can get a bit trickier when it comes to party planning! Science parties, bowling parties or sports based parties (eg soccer, gymnastics) can work very well not to mention parties involving craft or a cooking based activity or a movie party!:
For the little ones and their first birthdays – the sky is truly the limit! However I have loved the rise of animal based themes which suit a first birthday perfectly. Go with a cute Deer, bright Flamingo or pretty Giraffe…or for boys you could go with a monochrone Panda theme, a woodland fox or bear or a modern safari animal!
I hope these stunning cookies have inspired you ! Flyawaypineapple post their amazing cookies Australia wide so contact them via their website to enquire on an order!
One of the biggest kids party trends over the last year has been the Unicorn party theme – so it was a must have party inclusion in the first issue of “Celebrating Little Ones” magazine!
Perfectly Sweet came up with the bright vision for this Sleepy Unicorn birthday party and collaborated with a range of vendors from the LLC Children’ party directory to put together this gorgeous setup for the magazine beautifully photographed by Rachel Richter Photography.
It started with the amazing invitation by Eve and Co:
Which then came alive in this amazing setup:
This cake by Velvetier (who also created all the desserts) is a stand out – with this theme being hugely popular and sleepy unicorn cakes flooding Instagram, this unique take on this theme blew me away!
The balloons and partyware from Favor Lane added a wow factor and stylish touch with the gorgeous rose gold balloons and tableware mixed in with the bright decorations:
What cuter favour boxes could there be for a Sleepy Unicorn party than these by Glitter and Glue Designs?!:
I love this unique idea of having the kids make their own unicorn horn by filling up a pyramid container with lollies:
Of course another fun activity for any kids party is the pinata with this colourful custom pinata made by Party Pony Designer Pinata’s:

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have heard the news that has Lightning McQueen fans VERY excited.
Cars 3 is due for release in cinemas around the country June 22, just in time for school holidays, sending mini race car drivers into a tail spin of anticipation! I must admit though, it’s been a fantastic franchise that has been enjoyed in our family, so I’m sure the new movie will also be well received.
Judging by the popularity of Lightning McQueen and the movie over the years, as well as the trend for movies to quickly become a favourite party theme, we’re predicting a lot of red with requests for Cars parties over the coming months! So we’ve found some great finds from our LLC Vendors to get your engines racing.

Cars party decorations
You won’t have any difficulty finding licensed party ware if that’s your preference, but to avoid Lightning overload, take inspiration from the colours of the characters and the Grand Prix to create your own creative spin on the theme. We love the use of red or yellow, white and black as a base, which you can build on with any licensed products or character inspired desserts.

If you are trying to avoid using too much licensed party ware, a great compromise is to alternate between plain bold colours and licensed tableware, or use licensed plates with plain napkins and cups. That way you’re still letting the mini’s enjoy the star appeal of the characters – because let’s face it that’s what they want!

Any fruit based theme is always bound to be cute and a cherry themed party – one of the cutest! This sweet but on trend-theme was the inspiration behind the “Cherry on top” shoot which graced the cover of the first issue of “Celebrating Little Ones” magazine!

It all started with this sweet invitation using custom illustrations by Elk Prints (also seen in the above party backdrop) and brought together in this invitation by Eve & Co Stationery:
As you can see – the invitation really came to life with the party setup!:
The amazing sign which was part of the backdrop was created by Communicake It:
The cakes and desserts did not dissapoint – all created by My Petite Sweets in Perth:
I love all the cute setups which were incorporated into this shoot! Also loving the cute favour boxes by Glitter and Glue Designs:
