I don’t know too many 58 year olds who inspire 5 year old birthday parties, do you?
But with a portfolio of over 150+ careers and a killer wardrobe, it’s no surprise Barbie has and always will be an inspiration for so many young girls – so why not have a party in her honour?
But how do you choose between rock ‘n’ roll Barbie, Malibu Barbie or Mermaid Barbie?
Think like Barbie and make everything PINK of course!

I was a HUGE Barbie fan when I was little. My all-time favourite was Barbie and the Rockers, which in hindsight would have made a great party theme!
If choosing just one of Barbie’s roles is too hard though, use a Barbie silhouette and stick with PINK as your main colour mixed with with white and black which will achieve the right effect – we’ve found a few ‘accessories’ to help complete the setting from vendors listed on the Life’s Little Celebrations children’s party directory

The little yellow men in overalls have done it again!
Minions 3 has hit the big screens, and whilst it’s predominantly focused on Gru and his twin brother, the Minions have stollen the show and created a yellow frenzy! Kids go bananas (pun intended!) for these guys, so they make a great choice for a kid’s party theme, and super simple with just two colours to coordinate!
The Simple Party, Sydney
The Minions are of course no strangers to throwing a good party, but if you prefer things a little less chaotic and a lot more thought out, we’ve rounded up some great inspiration and party finds from the vendors on the Life’s Little Celebrations party directory to help get the party started – just add a few fun crazy games and the kids will be screaming for more!

Minions party decorations

So the lovely ladies from The Loot Lab aim to provide time-poor parents with themed party bags and boxes which also create joy for your little ones and their party guests. Today I am delighted to share their range with you!
They’ve taken the stress out of party planning for you! No more running around trying to put together favour bags while you also juggle baking a cake, ordering balloons, booking entertainers and the list goes on…
Someone recently called them “the busy Mum’s Best Friend”, and that’s exactly what they hope they are achieving. They’ve spent countless hours searching for the perfect party fillers to work in with a vast range of party themes.
Today they share more with us on this fabulous party idea!:
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Our Party Boxes are actually lunchboxes in disguise! That’s right – our filled party boxes can continue to be used long after the party is over.
We currently have eight options, with new designs launching late 2017, all designed here in Melbourne, with the aim of creating joy in your child’s life. Each of our party boxes are filled with high quality treasures to ensure hours of fun for all the party guests long after the event is over.
And we don’t stop there, you can customise some of the contents with add-ons for even more fabulousness and then the box itself can become the cutest lunchbox you’ve ever seen or the perfect treasure box for your child.
Our lunch boxes are BPA free, food safe, microwave safe, freezer safe, dishwasher safe and totally fabulous!
WE DO PARTY BAGS TOO!
Depending on the amount of party guests or your budget, maybe a party bag is more your thing! Well The Loot Lab has you covered!
Made with a premium semi-gloss cardboard we have three designs available that will work into any party theme. Our Party Bags come packed with high quality loot to ensure your party guests continue to enjoy their day long after the sugar high has worn off!
Our Party Bags come with our own gorgeous gold foil printed ‘thank you’ sticker, for the ultimate finishing touch.
HIGH ON FUN & LOW ON SUGAR!
At The Loot Lab we have carefully thought out the contents in all of our Party Boxes & Bags so the kiddies can enjoy them long after the party is over. That’s why our range is high on fun and low on sugar!!
Think Notepads, textas, stamps, stickers, bubbles etc.. After filling up on lollies at the party we wanted to give parents an alternative to the traditional take home ‘lolly bag’.
Our box designs are:
Ahoy Matey – Pirate theme
Caped Crusaders – Superhero theme
Clowning Around – Circus theme
Gone Wild – Jungle theme
Make A Splash – Under the Sea theme
Over The Rainbow – Princess theme
