Carnival Party Supplies and Ideas

Come one! Come all!

Carnival party – Paper Face Party Sydney

Thanks to a certain recent hit movie, the carnival is popular once more and it’s revived the classic party theme we haven’t seen in a long time!

A carnival party can be so easily adapted for any age group or occasion, simply by changing up the characters from cute circus animals to something a little more Greatest Showman inspired for older children who loved the musical.

So ROLL UP as we’ve found a fantastic range of carnival and circus inspired party supplies from our LLC Vendors to help pull it all together for you. Just CLICK on any image below to be taken to that business!

Decorating for your kids carnival party is super easy – just use plenty of colour or just red and white, adding fun elements you’d find at the greatest show. Prop hire is another great way to bring the show alive with ticket booths, signs and animals amongst some of our favourites.

Balloon Garlands made easy!

 

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.

They certainly add a huge element of style and ‘wow’ to any party!
