A few years ago when I first started planning my own kids parties….the range of partyware was limited to polka dots, stripes and chevrons. Now the kids party scene is bursting with fun partyware and “Party! she said” newly renovated online store has a huge range of Licensed Character parties, Themed parties and Party bundles which allow customers to pick and choose and stay right on trend with designer partyware !
They have so much to offer and if you can’t see it, just ask and they will be happy to try to source it for you.
“Party! she said” is now an online mother and daughters venture who used to be called Fantasy Kids Parties. Starting way back in 1985 it started as a catering and party styling service when the daughters were very young and it was a relatively new idea and because they loved to party, that’s all they knew and we love all the ranges they are now stocking:
Trending is their new stock from Daydream Society in the USA and Glitz & Glam a very versatile range just coming through their store now – suited to adult celebrations, baby showers and Christenings.
Their bundles are varied and they can also bundle up a pack of partyware that is just right for you.
Party! she said is a small business and small business is such a lovely way to feel like family, which is what they try to make their customers feel. Old fashioned customer service, but mixed with an online presence! Based in Adelaide they offer shipping Australia wide. Party! She Said is on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
They also have a range of fun and stylish decorations and backdrops:
As well as licensed partyware and a range of party supplies to suit popular kids themes such as a ballerina party:
They have also recently launched a new venture “Lollygraze” in Adelaide metro which you can book via their website as well as “Abelia Flower Crown” workshops with information also on their website with the aim to offer flower crowns to purchase and also in DIY kits in the future!
As you can see – their range is bright and stylish and they have so much happening! They are definitely a store you want to involve when you’re party planning for your next kids party or celebration! So head to their website now to start your planning!
Do your kids get excited every time they see a rainbow, or is it just my kids?
