girls party tableIf you’re one of those people who simply use white tableware and make do at their parties, then stop! Your party tableware is a huge part of your party, simply because it’s in a place where everyone can see it, and most people are going to be using it at some point. If you’ve put the effort into making a super fun theme that all of your decorations and accessories adheres to then why not keep your party tableware themed to go along with it?

Must have party games #partygames

Fun-Gift-Pass-The-Parcel-And-Main-PrizeParty games are always the highlight of any party, aren’t they? Whether you’re a fan of musical games, outdoor games such as water fights, races, or maybe even a piñata (we really wouldn’t advise trying this indoors, but they are fun!), there’s always something brilliant about seeing a group of children have fun at a party together. If you’re looking for some great ideas for your birthday party games, then we’ve got a few for you now.

In the realm of games for children’s parties, you can’t not have a pass the parcel or two in there. If Winners-Medalsyou’re not one for sourcing all the prizes and wrapping the parcels yourself – not everyone has the gift of wrapping, we know – then why not take a look at our pre-filled range? It saves the trouble of thinking of the kid’s party ideas for prizes and the game itself, and saves you time because we do all the hard work for you.

Other great children’s party ideas for games include things you can play outside. When the weather starts warming up, why not start having sports competitions, races, and anything else you can think of! All you really need for games like this is a set of cones (like these brightly coloured, high quality Melissa and Doug ones), and some winner’s medals to give out as prizes to the winners!

decorations balloonsWhat really brings a party to life? Music, for one, guests, for another, but decorations play their part too. Colour, colour and yet more colour is usually the order of the day when it comes to decorating a room for a children’s party. From bunting and balloons to streamers and hanging paper ornaments, when it comes to party decorations, more is less.

Have you a children’s party to organise? What you need is a varied and unique selection of party decorations, preferably from one supplier, so that you can buy everything easily from one outlet.

That’s what you’ll find at Parties Wrapped Up. We’ve got everything from patterned paper lanterns to confetti to garlands.

Nothing brings a party to life quite like party decorations. Decorate, embellish and give your party the wow factor it deserves.

Everything you need to throw a party to remember

Children don’t need much to have fun. If there’s cake, balloons, games and silly hats on offer then you don’t need to provide much else. A magician? A person who makes balloon animals? Bring them all along. But what you really need to make sure you’ve got organised, is all the party supplies.

Choosing your party bag fillers

party-bagsParty bags are commonly given out to guests at the end of a party, as a sort of “thank you for coming” and appreciation of their time and being at your party. These are a fantastic little gift for your party guests, and children in particular absolutely love them – but how do you choose the right party bag fillers to suit both your party theme, and your guests themselves? Well, as connoisseurs of party planning, we thought we’d weigh in and give you some tips on how to choose brilliant party bag fillers for your little loot bags at the end of your celebration – just keep on reading!

Choosing the best party bag fillers for your celebration

When you’re choosing your party bag fillers for your party, there are a few things that you’ll want to consider to make sure you’re getting the right bits inside, these can include:

  • Age
    The age of the recipients will definitely play a big part in what you’re likely to choose to pop into your party bags. Not everything is going to be suitable for especially young children, and older children might prefer something with a little bit of complexity (while a toddler would likely be over the moon with a bouncy ball!). You can see examples of this in our own party bags, which we often separate by age and who would be most likely to enjoy it.
  • Gender
    While plenty of little toys are perfect for both boys and girls, the fact remains that there are still certain things which, generally, will be preferred by either boys or girls. This is almost certainly something you’ll take into consideration when putting together your party bags to make sure they’re completely loved!
  • Interests
    If you’re having a small party and know all of your guests very well, then you might want to cater to their individual interests for their party bags. Likewise, if you know the whole group has a shared interest, then you could base your party bags around this shared interest so all of the contents are along a similar theme.
  • Party Theme
    Most people curate their party bags to fit with the theme of the party they’re throwing. Ensuring that the bags and the contents all work well with whatever theme you’ve chosen is a great way of ensuring that your party is totally cohesive! You can choose from a range of our themed pre-filled bags if you prefer, also. The link is provided below.
  • Your Own Budget
    Don’t forget to take your own budget (and time) constraints into consideration! After all, party bags are intended as a small gesture, so there’s no need to go overboard with them and fill them with all manner of things that end up costing more than the party as a whole! Keep it simple, and your guests are sure to love them!

We hope we’ve been able to give you some advice, guidance and inspiration for choosing fantastic party bag fillers to round off your party perfectly! You can find our range of party bag fillers here, or if you’re still feeling like you need a little bit of extra help, then why not just take a look at our pre-filled party bags here? They’re already completely ready to go!

Spring outdoor parties – everything you need

It’s nearly Spring! The clocks go back very soon, heralding the arrival of one of the most pleasant seasons, and the start of some lovely weather! So, it’s time to start getting your barbecues out and dusting them off; digging out the picnic basket and getting your plastic crockery ready to go – it’s time for some outdoor parties! If you’ve got a special occasion coming up that you’re considering celebrating out and about in the park, at the beach or even just in your own back garden, then you’re in the right place for some helpful hints and tips!

Spring Outdoor Parties: What will you need?

Pom_Pom_Picks_2_www.partieswrappedup.co.ukGetting outside with family and friends is a fantastic thing to do even when you don’t have a thing to celebrate, but add a party into the mix and you really can’t beat it! But what will you need to ensure that your party runs smoothly and you’ve got absolutely everything to throw a fantastic party? Well, that’s what we’re talking about today!

Tableware that’s safe around little ones and hard ground.
Glass crockery, young children and the outside world don’t really mix too well. Stick with something sturdy (such as our prettily patterned melamine range – find it here) to lay your food out on and some card pieces for eating/drinking from (find our themed tableware sets here) – not only is it safer, but the card saves on washing up, too!

Decorations that fit the outside environment!
We mention them a fair but, but our range of paper decorations (find them here) are perfect for when you’re out and about! They’re light enough that you could attach them to a tree, or a post, with sticky tape and not have to worry about damaging anything when you’re taking them back down again. They’re brightly coloured, perfect for mixing and matching and look fantastic no matter the occasion you’re celebrating – we’d recommend taking a look!

Party games that take advantage of the space!
Thinking of party games for while you’re outside can be a little bit awkward; having to take loads of things with you isn’t ideal either – but with a ball and our Melissa & Doug Activity Cones (find them here), you can create loads of games that you and the little ones are sure to absolutely love! You can play ball games; racing games; even musical games if you have a battery powered speaker. Just use your imagination!

Fun food for all your guests
You’re not going to want to prepare lots of fantastic food only to be unable to transport it to wherever you’re having your party! Have a look at this fantastic list of recipes which has plenty of ideas for your outdoor party menu.

We hope we’ve been able to help out and give you some great inspiration for your celebrations while the weather’s a little bit warmer – take advantage of it while it lasts! To see everything party related that we stock on our website, then check it out here!
