Trolls Party Supplies

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).

Disney Pixar’s Cars party supplies

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.

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!

Carousel Party Supplies

It’s been a big few weeks here at Life’s Little Celebrations with the launch of the new “Celebrating Little Ones” magazine! If you still haven’t had a read make sure you do here.

Now onto this weeks blog party supplies round up! One of the fondest memories I have from my childhood is of a music box that mum would wind up at bedtime, and I’d listen to it before falling asleep, watching the carousel of horses go round and round. It was pink and white and I thought it was just magical.

These days, the song still plays in my head when I see the gorgeous vintage carousels at the carnival, and I’m equally delighted when I see so many talented stylists using it as inspiration for a magical party theme. It’s the perfect mix of vintage nostalgia, horses (everyone’s favourite animal!) and girliness.

Take a look at some of these beautiful examples.

Minnie Mouse Birthday Party Inspiration

minnnie mouse party inspiration

Styling by The Sweet Cart, Perth


For an 89 year old, Minnie Mouse still has everything going for her.

Not only is she lovely, stylish, great with kids and has a shoe wardrobe any female would be jealous of, she has the uncanny ability to just keep reinventing herself!

All jokes aside, the coveted Minnie Mouse has never gone out of fashion in my book, but is proving to be super popular with little girls lately. Of course when you’re as famous as Minnie you have your face branded on pretty much anything you can think of, so finding supplies shouldn’t be too hard for the die hard fans! But if you’re after something a little more boutique (or is that bowtique?) then I’ve found the perfect pieces to pull together a soiree even Minnie would happily attend!

This party can be styled with the traditional red/white/black or pink/white – or for something different go with a floral look or a unique colour scheme. Anything works as long as you work in the Minnie Mouse head silhouette!

Let’s get our polkadot on!

Minnie Mouse  Invitations & Stationery

Pink or red, black and white makes a great colour palette for a Minnie Mouse party, and don’t forget the polkadots! Just add the instantly recognisable Minnie Mouse outline with bow and you have yourself a theme.

We’ve seen a really big trend in backdrops playing more of a role in room decoration instead of  just for photo backdrops, so why not give one a go and use in conjunction with  coordinated balloons, tassels and other accessories.

Trend to watch: Rustic Baby Shower

Gone are the days of boring baby showers that no one wanted to attend! These days they are quite the social event social and fill our social feeds with gorgeous images that can make even this mother of 4 want to do it all over again!

One trend we’ve been paying close attention to is the rustic baby shower theme. So, so divine and works well as a gender neutral theme, or can be adapted to a slightly more masculine or feminine feel with colour if required.

Key features to include in a rustic baby shower are natural, earthy tones, natural elements such as wood, florals and even fauna, and a few vintage elements like lace and mason jars. You can also work in some metallics for a special pop of colour!

To get your inspiration flowing, we’ve found some great items you can easily source from our LLC Vendors to get a head start.

Rustic Baby Shower Invitations

Set the tone of your event with beautiful invitations that the mum-to-be can add to her keepsake box. We love these ones printed on wood by Eve & Co which could be customised to suit a baby shower theme:

Rustic Baby Shower Decorations and Tableware

Sometimes starting with a blank canvas can be a little daunting and sometimes end in a creative block! But in this case, you can’t go wrong by starting with a neutral colour palette of woods, kraft paper, hessian, florals and adding muted, pastel colour for a gorgeous layered rustic theme or throwing in some metallics for some extra wow factor!

A gorgeous authentic chalkboard sign such as this suits the rustic feel perfectly and is a special way to welcome guests and personalise the baby shower decor:
