So, you’ve got a special party to plan. Perhaps a birthday, hen party or wedding? Wouldn’t it be nice to support small businesses and buy unique, beautiful or handmade party supplies?
I’ve scoured the internet to bring you five of my favourite party supply businesses suitable for adults and children alike, I hope you’re going to love them too!
First up … badges and hats …
If it’s a special birthday, Ellie’s Beautiful Mess hand makes fabric hats and number badges that will make you squeal! The sparkly, glittery, squishy numbers will have everyone singing “happy birthday to you” all day long!
Let’s talk about party decor
Hello Party sell the most fabulous balloon garlands kits that really stand out from the crowd (I really want to cover my whole house with these). I also think a tassel garland brings a bit of sparkle to any party, plus you can keep it up long after the party is over!
Balloons to Behold
Bubblegum Balloons make it easy to brighten anyone’s day, celebration or party with their inflated and personalised Bubble Balloons – arriving perfectly party ready by post. Whether you’re hosting a Mermaid themed soiree or a Superhero extravaganza, there’s something for everyone.
You’ve decorated your venue and you’ve nailed the badge or hat to wear. Surely every party needs a pinata? Kate from Pinyatay hand makes every pinata to order and they’re absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Possibly too lovely to smash up, so you could just use them as a centrepiece if you can’t bear to destroy them or you could purchase one of the pull string options.
If you’re organising a hen party you might just want to check out one of the listings at the bottom of the page (I won’t say anymore, chuckle, chuckle!)
DIY Photo Booth
Foil letter balloons are bang on trend at the moment and Best Day Ever supply some excellent choices which are perfect for photobooth backdrops. Add in some tissue paper pom poms or honeycomb balls and a tinsel curtain and you’re good to go!
These lovely small businesses are my personal favourites, but I’d love to discover more. Who do you recommend? Which party suppliers, trends and brands are you coveting on Instagram?
Thanks for reading, my next blog is all about independent suppliers of sweet treat and party table accessories, so please get in touch if you can recommend someone who fits the bill.
