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.
