useful tips for organizing kids party in melbourne

I’ve listed decorations as No 5 of the “5 Essential Ingredients for a Kids Party in Melbourne because after the birthday cake, the children entertainer, the party food ideas and the presents it’s the last thing to be considered and probably the only thing that is not absolutely essential. If you’re a time-poor working Mum the decorations are the one thing you can do without.

PARTY SUPPLY SHOPS The quickest and easiest way of decorating your home for your child’s birthday party is to go to a party supply shop. I like to visit in person because I can browse the isles for exactly what I want and perhaps see things that I would not have thought of. Disposable plates, serviettes, drinking cups, table clothes all add to the ambience as well as enhance your chosen theme. Take it a step further by adding balloons, tissue balls, streamers and disco balls, The trap is getting carried away and buying more than you had budgeted for. Try www.amazingkidsparties.com.au ONLINE PARTY SUPPLIERS I did a search online for “kids party decorations in Melbourne” and came up with online stores all over Australia who would ship for about $9.00 – $10.00. If you have a clear picture on your theme, colour scheme and how much you want to spend, online shopping could be for you. Try from many listed online suppliers. Party DISCOUNT SHOPS Whether you buy high-end decorations from a Department Store or go for the cheap stuff, it all comes from China and will end up in the bin. So save yourself some money and check out the discount stores in and around Melbourne like Daiso, Tokuya, Hot Pricing and Stuff and Nonsense You’ll find things like kids’ colouring books, party stuff, costumes, gift bags, boxes, and wrappers, decorations, tableware, and a hundred other things that will add a quirkiness to your party.
