Party supplies for gorgeous style

Sometimes the hardest part of organising a party is just getting started – would you agree?

With so much inspiration provided by our talented LLC directory vendors, it can get a little overwhelming if you don’t have a theme in mind, and we can all relate to changing our minds over and over after seeing so many amazing ideas on Pinterest or Instagram!

I often find working backwards in the planning process can be helpful, albeit strange! Finding inspiration in the smallest details normally left for later in the planning process like decorations, tableware or the colour of the party outfit can sometimes be just what you need to get you off the starting blocks – backwards!

So when it comes time to pulling it all together, start with where you would normally source your products, such as LLC directory partner, The Party Parlour. What I have always loved about this site is that it’s literally a one stop shop for both inspiration and all the party supplies you’ll need to execute a coordinated event.

If you’re stuck for ideas, their party packages are a great place to start, presented in styled shoots with all the required items already curated for you to add to cart to complete the look. Themes are categorised by First Birthdays, Baby Showers, Colour and themes for boys and girls for easy navigation.

If you already know the theme of your occasion and just need the supplies to pull it all together, shopping by category makes ticking off your list a breeze with everything you need from invitations to tableware, unique balloons and garlands, glassware and favours, plus they post Australia wide for added convenience. Tick, tick, tick!

Or if you’re like me and partial to falling head over heels for new paper plate designs, their new arrivals can also provide a great starting block, like these gorgeous new items from Paper Eskimo. These would be so great for a circus or ice cream party! Just pick an item and let your imagination go.

These plates are exactly the type of product that back up my suggestion of working backwards – now just to find the occasion to use them…

Regardless of having a theme or not, The Party Parlour is a great place to start – from start to finish or finish to start!

What are your thoughts on my suggestion for working backwards when planning a special occasion?

Once you have your theme or colour chosen, shopping for the finishing touches is the easy part! To make it even easier for you though, we’ve searched the LLC partners for you and found some gorgeous items to complete the look no matter what your theme. You can search our full list of Directory pages for more ideas and finishing touches from our fabulous partners.

Introducing ‘Hanging Pretty’

I have some wonderful businesses advertising on my blog and I’ll be introducing you to them over time so you can discover some of the fantastic items which exist for your child’s parties and celebrations.

I love handmade items in a celebration and if you aren’t one for DIY there are some talented women who can create handmade decor for you such as Michelle – owner of Hanging Pretty. Michelle is based in Brisbane and works from her home studio, which she established in 2012 as a way to work from home while her kids were still little, making handmade prettiness.

Originally making unique mobiles for children’s rooms after not being able to find what she loved for her own daughter’s room a few years earlier she set about making her own bespoke creation and then went on to establish Hanging Pretty.

This beautiful mobile below really shows how Michelle’s business name “hanging pretty” aptly describes her creations!:

Michelle has previous work experience with events/functions so Hanging Pretty gradually transitioned from bespoke mobiles to custom papery for all aspects of events, boutique displays or photo-shoots where Michelle creates prettiness from a variety of mediums which are as unique as the person they are intended for.  As part of this transition Michelle drew on her experience and love of styling to offer styling ideas for boutique window displays, celebrations for any occasion and weddings.

Can you believe these are handmade flowers made by Michelle? Absolutely gorgeous!

Hanging Pretty has a wide range of possible items for your child’s celebration such as: Sewn silhouette garlands, Cake bunting, backdrops, toppers, embellishments for straws and bottles, tassels, favour boxes and more!

Hanging Pretty Services also include (On Location from Brisbane to Gold Coast): Photo-shoot Styling, event planning, boutique window displays, sourcing of products and more!

Michelle is really lovely to deal with and is fantastic at brainstorming ideas for your celebration and designing something unique for your child’s party theme.

If you have an idea and need someone to make it happen then make sure you contact Michelle at Hanging Pretty.

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!

I really enjoyed putting these items together for this post as it’s such a cute theme for a little girl in a different colour palette to the usual girly themes! Hope you enjoyed it and it will help you with your planning and truly celebrating your own little ladybug!

 

 

 

 

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:

Alannah Rose aeroplane invitation - Twiggi

 

Aeroplane party invitation - The Candy Soirees

 

Aeroplane invitation - Imprintables

 

Paper Eskimo Plane party invitations - Significant Celebrations

 

Plane invitation & printables - PolkaDot Prints

A vibrant vintage invitation which is really unique!

Vintage plane invitation - Katy Jane Designs

These cute airplane printables can be used for lots of different items at the party and I love the boarding pass invitation!

Airplane Birthday printables - Anders Ruff

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:

This cloud and plane paper garland is too sweet for words!

 

Paper cloud garland - Meggy Green Handmade crafts

Buntings always look great at parties and here are a few lovely options which would work for this theme:

I’ve featured this delightful cloud mobile (which comes in various colour raindrops) in my Nautical theme post as it can be worked in for a few different themes and would look great in creating a cool sky effect!

Cloud Mobile - My Little Jedi

I also love this unique paper cloud balloon! It would look fantastic suspended with some clear string:

Cloud Paper Balloon - Upon a fold

Another great effect could be created using these colourful Aeroplane mobiles above your dessert/cake table!

Wall motifs and stickers continue to be a unique decoration which can be moved into the bedroom after the party:

White cloud wall stickers - Giggleme Designs

 

Paper plane peel and stick - Giggle me designs

Tissue pom pom’s would be ideal for a cloud effect. You could bunch them together to create cloud clusters or spread them out throughout the room for a gorgeous cloud scene. The best thing is – they are white so they could be reused many times over for different themes!

White Tissue Pom poms - Ah-Tissue

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!

Light blue paper fan - Mon Tresor

To incorporate balloons into this theme, these blue and white polka dot GIANT balloons would look sensational in the party area!

90cm Blue spot giant balloons - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Table Decor

Your table decor can be worked around the colour scheme you have chosen, but here are a few different options to have your party table flying high!

Light Blue Tablecloth - Le Petit Party

 

Orange table runner - The Party Parlour

 

Paper Eskimo blue table runner - Piece of Cake Parties & Celebrations

These chalkboard placemats could be used in the centre of the table to create a tarmac centrepiece! You could draw runway lines onto the placemat and place some toy planes on them for a great look!

Chalk board placemat - The Princess and the Pirate

Another unique way of dressing the table is this fun world map tablecloth to connect the idea of travelling into your plane theme!

World Map Tablecloth - Melbourne Map Centre

Some colourful tableware choices which we are sure will make the food taste even nicer!

Polka-dot multi plate - P is for party

 

Orange square plates - The Princess & the Pirate

 

Baby blue plates - Occasion by Design

 

Blue Rectangle Plate - Mon Tresor

 

Orange Napkins - The Princess and the Pirate

If you are incorporating orange into your colour scheme then these stripy straws look fantastic in this colour!

A cute alternative to the milk bottle is the use of small glass milk carton’s! They are so fun and different and I am sure all the kids will love drinking out of them!

 Sweet Treats

A nice cupcake wrapper can instantly dress up the simplest of cupcakes! Here a few choices which could work for you:

These pilot accessories are great for decoration or for your little one to wear:

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!

Toy Passport notebook - The Toy Place

Mini map notebooks - Hard To Find

Cardboard suitcases are great to be used for decoration for this theme or as a way of displaying your tableware for the kid’s to collect (cutlery, plates etc), or to display your other unique items such as the above notebooks! They work as fantastic storage for after the party too!

You could decorate the suitcases (or other items for your party) using these cute plane and travel stickers:

How lovely is this globe (and not as pricey as it may look)! It would make a unique decoration for this theme and an educational toy for your little boy for later on too!

For a personal touch this stamp with a vintage plane means you can personalise a range of items for your party! Your little one is sure to love this and it could be used to label all sorts of items for him in the future too!

It’s great to have a hands on activity at a party and these kits to create your own planes/gliders are sure to keep the little one’s busy. You could also have your little boy work on this before the party and then use the plane as a decoration for a personalised  touch!

Love the vintage look of this Aeroplane carousel which would be a unique table decoration and look lovely as room decor as well:

Blue gingham favour bags - Sweet Style

You can never go wrong with polka dots. They always look good!

Blue Polka Dot Treat Box - Sweet Style

A touch of orange if you are working this into your colour scheme:
