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?




Kids Party Plates

One of the great things about kids parties is that you can have fun with the party decorations and tableware! It’s a great excuse to use some really bright patterns and colours and there is a huge array of fantastic paper plates now…no need to just use the plain plastic ones from the $2 shop if you want something a bit more different!

I enjoy putting together a table for the kids now that my children are a little bit older. My girls always have fun on the day setting out the plates and cups for their friends and get excited about having a table just for them – and cute and fun paper tableware is fantastic for this!

Here’s a round up of some new styles of paper plates I’ve spotted recently from vendors on the Life’s Little Celebration’s children’s party directory (which you should totally check out when you are party planning!)

All the source links can be found below (and you can find even more styles of kids party tableware by browsing the links):
