What themes are you seeing as selling out at the moment in your store ? 

Timeless shades of pink and gold remain our top selling products at Ruby Rabbit with the rose gold trend continuing on into the latter half of 2017 and beyond!








Unicorns and pretty pastel themes are also a close second and we are forever ordering in more and more stock to keep up with their popularity. Balloons are by far our most popular item in the #partyshop with two large deliveries per week arriving in.….it’s not a party without a balloon!!!





What themes do you think will be most popular this summer for kids parties and baby showers ? 

Hmmm I would say pretty pastels and floral prints for girls, shades of blues for boys (creeping away from the monochrome!), and for baby showers lots of peach, rose gold and silver.





What decoration items are your customers loving at the moment ? 

Balloon garlands! Everyone loves a little DIY and seeing their very own creations come to life. At Ruby Rabbit we sell hundreds of balloons each week and with our new balloon garland decorating strips creating your own garland is super easy.



What are some of the extra little details popular with your customers ?

Paper straws are always a staple item in most of our orders. They are an inexpensive way to pretty up party drinks and add a little pop of colour to tie in to a party theme.



Do you have a favourite range out this year ? 

My personal favourite is the cactus range from Meri Meri. I love the fun plate shape and colours.


What colour schemes are trending at the moment ?

Rose gold, blush, peach and metallic silver.

T: What are some of the most popular colour schemes you are noticing for boys and girls parties at the moment ?

A: Trending this season for boys’ parties is the ‘Little Camper’ theme with the use of teepees, monochrome colour choices and a touch of green cactus fun! Outdoor fun with lots of space for energetic little boys to run wild! Unicorns and rainbows continues to be our most popular girls’ birthday party theme followed closely by Alice in Wonderland.

These themes are whimsical and timeless keeping both Mum and birthday girl happy with being able to add a personal touch when it comes to styling the party. These themes suit a broad range of ages from first birthdays up to around eight year olds.

T: What unique decorating ideas and theme ideas would you suggest for a baby shower? 

A: I’m loving the green palm leaf with luxe gold for something a little different, or for a softer touch with baby pink.

I’m a sucker for palms and have a ridiculous amount of cushion covers in my home in just that! Yes, I may have a cushion obsession, a rather large one my hubby would say!

T: What are your top picks for spring / summer party trends ? Any particular themes or looks? 

A: The party shop is busy with lots of fun bold colourful orders heading out the door as we move into Spring. Plus we can’t get enough of those green palm leaf and gold pineapple party pieces!

T: What are some of the well loved kids themes you have noticed from your most popular  customer buys? 

A: It seems that pale pink and gold isn’t fading, especially for little girls’ 1st birthdays.

Unicorns and rainbows are a close second and then super cool monochrome for the boys, plus colourful confetti spot orders are always strong and work perfectly for both girls and boys.

The ever popular donuts theme has faded away this year.

T: Are there any must have items you would suggest for mums planning their first kids party? 

A: Balloons and a fun cake topper! Balloons are such simple happy party decorations, and cake toppers can add that little special something to your cake. Both are definite must haves!
