Woodland fairy party inspiration

Our adorable little woodland hire package has us dreaming of a fun woodland fairy party so we've put together some cute ideas to share with you ....

 

Set the scene on your party table with our new woodland hire package ...

     

     

 

Why not add our fairy jars or seed light jars as cute table centrepieces ...

    

 

Or how about our glass domes ...

    

 

We've got lots of lovely vases available to hire as well that also make great centrepieces - either fill them with fresh flowers or choose the wide vases and fill with other decor items ...

     

 

Our top picks for your party tableware are either the pretty Truly Fairy range from Talking Tables or how about the very sweet daisy chain range ...

 

     

 

Of if you're opting for individual food boxes our little toadstool baskets are a fun option and the bags with handles are great to fill with take home treats ...

    

 

Pretty butterfly bunting and tassel garlands are a lovely idea for decorations for this theme ...   

    

 

And we are loving these ‘stuffed’ bubble balloons as a fun option for this theme:

    

       

 

If you’re doing some fairy themed baking here’s a few of our favourite products, you can view our full range of baking products online & in store: baking products

 

We've also transformed our window display this week with lots of fairy friendly ideas ... here's some pics, most items can either be purchased in store or hired from us

   

   

    

And we've collected lots of fun ideas over on our Pinterest board - here's a few of our favourites and you can check out all the other ideas here: woodland fairy party inspiration board

Some fun decorating ideas for a “Roooaarrsome!” Dinosaur Party

Got a Dinosaur fan in your house? We’ve put together some great ideas to help you make your next Dinosaur party a “Roooaarring” success!

 

 

Re-create this look!

Here’s all the details for how to re-create this quick & easy dinosaur setup at home yourself.

Our mesh wall is perfect to create an instant backdrop. Use this beside the food or dessert table, as a photo backdrop, behind the cake table, or at the entranceway to your party – there are so many ways to use the mesh wall.

We’ve added our mini air filled letter balloons (available in silver, gold or rose gold) to spell out “ROAR” – we also have the mini air filled number balloons so you change this to a name and / or age combo.

 

 

And we made a simple 1.5m garland to go across the top of the mesh wall, instantly transforming it to match the theme. These basic garlands are made using 11” and 16” balloons. Seen here in Dino themed colours, but can be customised to suit any theme. And best of all, they start from just $50 pick-up from our Mt Eden store (conditions apply).

Here's the links to all the products we used in the photo, including the mesh wall hire, the balloons we used in our ready-made balloon garland, ‘roar’ letters (uninflated) & a bunch of 3 dinosaur balloons on a weight this look can be created for less than $136 … Or even cheaper if you make your own garland:

 

                               

 

The quickest way to create a fun party atmosphere is with helium filled balloons. Instead of using weights for your helium balloons, how about using these super cute dinosaur figurines (available from our retail store) to hold your balloons in place. These would also make cute party favours.

 

                                    

                                                     

 

We’ve got a great range of dinosaur balloons in stock including some fun large shaped foil balloons. They look great in bunches or how about these cute Dino columns. The balloons are all available to purchase online & in store. And if you’re in Auckland you can also order the columns from our retail store - they come all inflated and ready to just place where you need them.

 

We found these super cool dinosaurs made of balloons over at www.brisbanekids.com.au – aren’t these a great idea!

 

 

And here’s some more of our favourite decorations and ideas you might like …

 This Roaring Dino Centrepiece is a great addition to any table. It is crafted with thick card so it can be played with again and again.

 

  

 

And we just love these dinosaur footprints. Simply stick the stickers to create the dinosaur footprints in your home! For added fun why not have treats at the end of the trail!  And how about the dinosaur happy birthday garland as a great finishing touch to your dinosaur party.

 

    

 

Looking for some inspiration for your dessert table? We’ve styled our window in rustic and glass which we think is a great option for a dinosaur party – check out some of the pics above. Most things shown are available to hire – click to check out our full hire range 

We have lots more fun Dino products available on our website and everything online can also be purchased from our retail store.

We’ve also been busy collecting lots of ideas together for food, decorations, party games & more on our Dino Pinterest Board as well – check it out for some inspiration.

70's Disco Party - with a twist

Check out this amazing party put together by one of our Pixies, Tracey to celebrate her joint birthday with her bestie Carolyn. Their ‘Staying Alive’ 70’s Disco theme was inspired by Studio 54 with a twist… welcome to Studio 45!


VIP entrance …. Are you on the list?:

    

 

The balloon wall by Pixie Party Supplies was a great photo backdrop & really set the scene:

       

 

Lots of hours spent scouring the 2nd hand shops resulted in a fabulous 70’s album cover photo back
drop:

       

 

It’s not a disco party without a disco floor which was made by Tracey and her hubby and a few cans
of neon spraypaint!

          

 

Tracey & her hubby were excited to showcase the bar that they made & painted … lots of love,
sweat & tears went into this & we think it was well worth the effort – amazing job! The filled acrylic
sign and drinks bucket was hired from Pixie Party Supplies who also customised the Bar sign with a
customised decal to fit the theme.

/acrylic-stands-for-hire    /drinks-buckets-for-hire

 

Check out all the 70’s inspired food! You can’t have a 70s party without prawn cocktails and
asparagus rolls. Tracey used the mini catering cubes and bamboo cocktail forks from Pixie Party
Supplies to make the prawn cocktail appetisers, and the black serving tray available to hire from
Pixie was fantastic for serving the food:

/mini-catering-cubes-40pk         /wooden-trays-for-hire

 

The mirrored cupcake stands were a huge hit for the disco themed party. Not only for cupcakes but
for the disco floor coloured vodka Jell-O shots as well.

/cake-cupcake-stands-for-hire         /cake-cupcake-stands-for-hire

 

And whilst not exactly 70s, no party is complete without donuts. The donut wall was hired from Pixie
Party Supplies and the donuts were blinged up using the edible silver Cachous sprinkles from Pixie
Party Supplies

/donut-wall-for-hire        /donut-wall-for-hire

 

This was Tracey’s first attempt at icing a cake. Supposed to be a dance floor and records around the
base of the cake – but the silver number cake toppers and candles from Pixie Party Supplies certainly
helped make the cake look great. And it was displayed on the black cake stand available to hire at
Pixie Party Supplies.

And here’s a few more of the little details that we loved!

Introducing Esa – Event Stylist

 

Pixie Party Supplies is pleased to announce we now have an Event Stylist – Esa, from Dream Catcher & Co Styling - in store part-time to help our customers plan and style their own parties. Esa has been featured on Kara's Party Ideas and Oh Its Perfect and we love her work! Her passion is helping create amazing events and she is looking forward to being able to share all her tips & ideas with our customers. As Esa was flitting around the store today, making balloon garlands and decorating a mesh wall to pretty up the store, Tracey followed her around and chatted to her to find out more about Esa.

Name: Esa

Business Name: Dream Catcher & Co Styling

How long have you been in business? Officially a year and a half.

What made you start event styling?

Having my daughter. It started as a hobby but when I had my daughter I wanted to do something different that I couldn’t find anywhere else and wanted to create for her. I found that I was quite good at it. Then people started asking me to style their children’s parties as well – and it went from there.

What inspires you?

I get inspired from just looking at things and putting them together and then seeing what modern twist I can put on them. That’s my speciality – I love taking ordinary things and modernising them and adding that extra modern twist.

What do you love about what you do?

Being able to be creative is the best part. I love when I can make the customer’s vision comes to life and that I get to play a role in that. I love making their days really special.

What’s your favourite event so far?

Definitely styling my daughter’s My Little Pony Party. (Check out the amazing pics featured on Kara's Party Ideas and Oh Its Perfect).

So what do you like about working at Pixie Party Supplies?

I love discovering new things and seeing how I can put them together and add that modern twist. I love being surrounded by so many pretty things – I feel like a kid at a candy store – seeing all the new stock and inspiring new ideas.

What’s your current favourite product here?

The new bride range – I love it!

How can you help our customers?

I feel like I can give them new ideas, share my inspiration with them and help them explore different ideas and add that extra twist.

What do you enjoy doing when not styling parties?

Spending time with Hannah, my daughter. And always looking for my next inspiration.

How would you describe yourself?

Quite shy and reserved. I’m hands on and creative but quiet – I’m the background guy.

As well as hanging out with us 4 days a week Esa also runs her own business Dream Catcher & Co Styling. If you would like some advice on styling your own event call in and see her in store for some free tips & ideas. If you need a full styling & set up service she can help with this too (pricing dependent upon your requirements). She also has a range of products available for hire. You can contact her through us at Pixie Party Supplies. Esa is available in store Sundays 9:00am-3:00pm and Monday-Wednesday 9:30am-4:30pm. She would love for you to come & visit so she can help you create that special twist for your own parties.
