Jenny, the Head Pixie, here to share a bit about our journey so far with you ...
Back in July 2012 after a move from Wellington to Auckland, I decided to take the plunge and leave corporate life to focus on Pixie Party Supplies. I had opened the business at the end of the previous year as an addition to our toy hire business in Wellington and it very quickly became my passion. I have always loved parties, in fact one of my earliest memories is of my first birthday party! I had previously struggled to find a good range of children’s party supplies and the overwhelming feedback from friends and customers was that they were having the same problem. So from very humble beginnings of a Facebook page and a few boxes of products we quickly grew our product offering. We still continue to add new product lines every month (we’ve got over 3,500 lines now!) and we noe stock products for all events and occasions.
In September 2013 we started another chapter for Pixie Party Supplies as we became the official NZ distributor for the Sundays range of beautiful boutique party products and ceramics. We further expanded our wholesale offering mid-2017 when we added the lovely My Minds Eye range which is a great compliment to the Sundays products. We supply these pretty products to lots of retail and online stores and event stylists all over NZ.
Fast forward to May 2014 and we opened our pretty boutique party store in Epsom. Then in June 2017 we relocated to a much bigger premise in Mt Eden where it is now easier to browse & buy from our full range and we have plenty of room on busy Saturdays when the shop is full of balloons heading off to celebrations all around Auckland! We are thrilled that we have become a ‘destination store’ and have people travelling from all over Auckland & further afield to come & see our products and get tips & advice in store. We would love for you stop by!
An exciting new addition to Pixie Party Supplies in 2019 has been the introduction of our hire range. From kids tables & chairs to acrylic plinths, cake stands, vintage china & lots more! We are going to continue to add to the range so if there's something particular you're looking for let us know.
We are always adding beautiful new products & evolving to keep up with latest trends & we have lots more exciting things to come! You can keep in touch with our latest news by subscribing to our newsletter and following us on facebook & instagram. And make sure to pop into our store regularly – or frequently visit our website – we have lots more gorgeous new products coming your way.
One of my favourite jobs is scouring the globe to find the very latest stylish partyware to add to our collection & share with our customers. I love helping customers create just the right 'look' for their event to wow their party guests. I'm proud to present our carefully curated collection of stylish partyware and hope we can help with some beautiful products for your next event soon. Our team are happy to provide styling advice and share all our tips & ideas with you to help make your occasion special. Feel free to contact us any time by email or please come and see us at our pretty boutique party store at 90 Mt Eden Rd, Mt Eden, Auckland.

I've been working here now since the beginning of the year (2018) and I just love discovering loads of new products for almost any theme imaginable. I enjoy putting products together for different party themes and my favourite product has to be the "It's Not a Party Without Bubbles" napkins - they are so me ;) But there are so many pretty products it's really hard to choose just one. Outside of work I am Mum to a very busy teenager and wife to my wonderful husband of 15 years. Since turning 40 (a few years ago now - eek!) I've been ticking off items from my bucket list including skydiving, snorkeling with sea turtles, jumping off the sky tower and much more. Starting here at Pixie Party Supplies I had to add learning about helium balloons to my bucket list as well - so much to learn and I'm still learning and living life :)
The thing that I love the most about working at Pixie Party Supplies is that I can use all the knowledge I have about designs and colours in a new different way. I have worked in the fashion industry for almost 6 years in total so it was very exciting to go in a new direction. I have been working at Pixie Party Supplies since April 2019 - and it has been AMAZING!.
If you speak Spanish or want to practice your Spanish a bit more I will be more than happy to speak to you in my mother language.
Outside of work I am a personal trainer, I love going outdoors, discovering new restaurants and delicious food, pretty much just enjoy life!
I have been working here since September 2017, and am now in my last year of high school. I enjoy the working environment at Pixie Party Supplies, and being surrounded by people who love styling their own events as much as I do. I love the wide range of products especially our cute Meri Meri ranges and our gorgeous confetti balloons.
