1. Ombre Pastels

Our personal fave has to be the return of the pastels! Ombre Pastels are set to be in full swing this year. We’ve even incorporated it into our slime parties! If your kids are slime obsessed, check out our new Kids Slime Parties click here.

2. Desserts in Disguise

Dessert is always the highlight of every children’s party and we have seen some amazing dessert tables in our time. This year, take your desserts to a whole new level with this awesome ‘desserts in disguise’ idea. From flamingo macaroons to whoopie pies that look like peaches. Theme your dessert to match your party theme – kids would go crazy for these!

3. Balloon Garlands

Last year, we saw balloon decorations taken to a whole new level with stunning balloon garlands. This trend is here to stay and we are sure these garlands will make a regular appearance at your child’s birthday party. Get creative with colours, shape and layouts to create the perfect arch way, photo area or display for your cake table.

4. Say My Name

Personalisation is a massive industry and a photo favourite. With giant lettering, balloons, acrylic displays and much much more, make your birthday boy or girl feel extra important on their special day with a name display. We have seen this trend grow across the events industry and this year, it’s your chance to get it in on the action.

5. Fun Foods

Did someone say food? 2019 is set to take food displays to a whole new level. Last year we saw the grazing table take over as the party favourite but this year, experts tip extra creativity will take over your kids party food buffet. We can help you add a splash of colour and fun to your food table with our party bags. Check out our range here.

  • We booked a Bop till you Drop disco party for my daughters 5th birthday and it was fantastic! We had 14 little girls dancing and singing their hearts out. The party was utterly perfect! Anisa was so much fun and her energy endless. She kept the kids captivated from start to finish. They had such a fantastic time. I will be raving about this for a while I can promise you.

  • Thank you Bop Till You Drop for the amazing entertainment you gave to all the children at my daughters 6th birthday party. All the kids had an amazing time singing and dancing, with parents coming up to me at the end of the party or texting me to let me know how much of a great time their kids had at the party, and it was all thanks to your team. They made my daughter feel very special on her day!

  • We just had a Bop Till You Drop Science Party today with 14x 5 year olds, and they all loved it! Volcanoes, rockets, magic milk, slime. What could be better? They put on lab coats and were able to participate in the experiments. My daughter really liked Shannon, our Bop Till You Drop Host. Thanks so much Shannon! Much credit to her for being such a patient, engaging, and energetic host. We have now had 2 great experiences with BTYD. Thank you!

  • What a fantastic party you created. I literally just booked the hall and brought the food and you guys made it a party!!! Disco lights, microphones and a song choice that was perfect for all the 7 year olds plus the few younger ones we had at the party. The energy of your hosts was amazing!!! They didn’t stop dancing and jumping the entire time and it made the entire party so easy for me as every single one of the kids was completely engaged in the party the entire time!!!
