So many mums are loving soft play toys at the moment for their kids parties as they are SO perfect for the toddler/preschooler age group which are harder to entertain by other means! For older kids, the slumber party trend has exploded lately! Kings Party Hire in Melbourne meets the needs of both these age groups with their wonderful hire range!
King’s Party Hire began after owner Katie worked as a nanny in London. Being such a popular industry Katie moved back to Melbourne in 2014 realising there weren’t many companies offering soft play hire in Melbourne. And so the idea ten became reality, King’s Party Hire was born.
King’s Party Hire have something for everyone. From Soft Play zones to keep your youngest guests happy, or children’s ordinary sleepovers being transformed into magical Slumber Parties.
The team at King’s Party Hire love seeing how happy the kids are and the best reviews they can get is when they come to collect the equipment and the children don’t want it to go or the party to end.
What you can hire: Starting with enough soft play items to do one party a day, they now have a large range of soft play items aimed at babies and toddlers and they add new equipment every year.
From differently sized ball pits to soft foam playhouses, foam shapes for building and creating, bouncy animals, with safety mats included, jumping castles, kids tables and chairs and now slumber party hire items for the older children.
King’s Party Hire get a lot of happy customers who love that the children are kept busy and entertained throughout the party, especially at venues where there might be nothing else for the children to do. It means all the parents can relax and enjoy the party too.
They will deliver, set up and collect at the end of the party so there’s no stress when organizing the kid’s entertainment. They also do the occasional public event, markets, Christmas festivals and they will even be at a car show in a few weeks time.
So whether it is soft play for toddlers and preschools or teepees for a slumber party – if you’re a Melbourne mum, head to King’s Party Hire to find out more!
Has your house been invaded by slime yet?
Ours has – multiple times! Thankfully I was worded up on a handy tip to use vinegar to remove it from any surface (including carpet), so the slippery, slimey fun can continue. It’s since sparked a wave of interest in science experiments and my kids have even been creating more slime at school…and bringing it home (*thank you…not*)!
A science and slime party theme is perfect for inquisitive school aged children, and we’ve found some great items to help pull it all together – and then watch an episode of Myth Busters or Operation Ouch! for some more inspiration!

Science and Slime Party Entertainment
Some things are sometimes best left to the experts, and out of the house! So consider a party entertainer that can supply all the equipment or a venue that doesn’t require you to clean up for the ultimate in messy science fun!

It’s so great to see kids interested and excited in science, so why not encourage it with a science and slime party. Mums and Dads might even enjoy it too!

Roll up everyone! There’s a wonderful business to introduce you to tonight – Beth from Kids Prints is one of our talented members who loves to design stationery for children’s parties!
One of the most popular themes from Kids Prints is a Circus Carnival theme which I am sharing tonight with some customer images from a party using her stationery.
This is a great example about how choosing a great invite and stationery design, helps coordinate ALL the party elements and make party planing so much easier! The stationery really brings the circus theme to life and gives the party that carnival feel!
As you can see – from the carnival signs to the favour tags to the food labels – the carnival stationery was used throughout to create a fun setup which is coordinated, using the design by Kids Prints

I’ve recently shared some girl Christening supplies and ideas on the blog and now it is time to share a gorgeous boys Baptism by Melbourne stylist Style by Luxe!
There are some favourite boys Christening themes but it is wonderful to create a modern and new take on these themes!
Yiota from Style by Luxe created this modern take on the nautical theme!
Modernising traditional themes is another way to create new styles and concepts. Their modern take on the nautical theme using a beautiful silver boat as the central attraction for this baptism of twin boys, ended up being such a beautiful display.
The theme was brought through from invite to personalised lollipops and to the final end product which of course was the dessert display.

Its not easy coming up with new themes and styles for every event, however Style by Luxe loves creating custom events to suit everyone’s theme, colour and concept. At times, minimal items can still make a real impact when designing and styling a space. Their “Angelo” blue and gold baptism with the cake being the main display is one such example. With a beautiful floral arrangement, great props and balloons they were able to make a real impact!
