    Check Out What Others Have Done


    Your best starting point is to search the web for what other clever people have created and use that as a guide. If you search the image section of your preferred web search site, you will have a great visual representation of what can be achieved. Pinterest is also a fantastic starter for ideas! Just type in your theme and then "party" to open the floodgate of ideas!

    Get ideas from friends and family and join online groups for people interested in party planning to get their suggestions.

    Make sure you check through our past blogs as well for some creative ideas for your chosen theme and jump on our live chat to speak to one of our awesome party staff for some ideas on how to incorporate our items into your theme!



    Colour Coordinating


    This is the easiest way to get the theme you want. If you look at the colours that are in their theme they want, you can match them pretty easily with plain colour balloons, plates, cutlery, napkins, and decorations.

    If you search on Google for the theme you want and "colour palette", it will usually bring up some results showing you the colours that go with the theme.

    Depending on your particular theme, usually it is best to go with either three colours, or one main colour with two or three accent colours.

    Also check if there are any other stand out features of the theme that you can substitute with generic versions; for example, you might want a Bluey themed party so you can add generic paw print items to your decorations as well.

    Making It Yourself


    You may get lucky and find someone who can custom make party items for you in your theme, but it may become quite pricey and sometimes a long wait. If you are a little bit crafty, you can easily make your own party items!

    First, figure out what types of items you want to create and take note of any measurements you need, such as the space on treat bags, the size for a cupcake pick or cake topper, or a banner.

    It is usually quite easy to find images for your theme online. Once you have some, you can use an online program such as Canva to personalise and add names and other text.

    If you have a printer at home, you can print out your images in your chosen size. Microsoft Word has a great feature under the Mailings section to create labels in any size and you can then duplicate your image in there. If you don't have a home printer, you can take your file to your local printers or upload it to a custom printing website where you can get your design printed on pretty much anything!

    Putting It All Together


    Once you have all your bits and pieces, you just need to set it all up!

    There are so many ways now to create an eye-catching party display, such as creating a balloon garland or arch, and adding banners and curtains to create a stunning backdrop.

    If you do get anything custom made, the best thing to get would be the cake! Make it the centrepiece of your decorations and everything will all just come together nicely!

    You will have all your guests asking how you managed to find all your items and the birthday boy or girl will have the party they wished for!
