Colour your party: Black and White

Black and white – two colours which work well with so many others – so put them together and it’s a winning combination.

Add in a 3rd colour if you wish, anything goes with these two.

So here is some inspiration for any black and white celebrations you are planning!

All the links are under the collage and come from the fantastic vendors in the Children’s party directory.  Please note if you are after the hire items in your state, e-mail me for contacts:

Superhero Theme

If your child would love to have Super powers a Superhero party is the perfect chance for them to at least pretend for a day, that they do!

As you can see from the printable designs below – a generic superhero theme or one based on a comic book look, are popular rather than only a specific character (ie superman, batman etc) party.

Remember to visit the Party Directory section of this site in the midst of planning for this party to find all the items and suppliers you need! You can view my PINTEREST board for this theme here.
