Balloon bunches

We know lots of you have unfortunately had to cancel or post-pone events, or you're going ahead without some of your loved ones being able to attend.

We're here to help in any way we can so please get in touch with our team. 

We have been busy putting together lots of balloon bunch ideas for lots of different occasions. You can order these in advance for collection from our retail store so on the day you just need to pop in & pick them up so you don't need to wait.

Delivery fees during standard working hours Mon-Fri start from $25 - if you let us know how many bunches you need and the delivery address we are happy to provide a quote for you. Please note: for all balloon deliveries someone will need to be home to accept the delivery. 

These bunches are also a great option if you want to send something to a friend or family member in Auckland that you are unable to visit, just to let them know you're thinking of them on their special day. We also have a range of greeting cards which we are happy to add for you. You can check them out here: greeting cards. If you send us the message we are happy to write this in for you and include with the bunch.

Jungle party inspiration

The much anticipated arrival of our new animal print orbz last week created a lot of excitement at Pixie HQ! We promptly changed out our window display so that we had an excuse to inflate some!

 

 

This then sent us on a full on jungle party inspiration search … here’s a few of the ideas we collected together, you can view lots more ideas over on our Pinterest board: jungle party inspiration

 

Our animal balloon characters make a fun addition for any jungle, safari or zoo theme and are great for taking pics with. We make these at our retail store. Get in touch for details!

 

 

Our jungle party hire package is full of items to help you set the scene:

 

    

  

                 

We’ve used the jungle party pack in our window display along with some of our other hire items such as wooden rounds, wooden crates, glass domes, drinks dispenser, greenery …

 

    

    

  

We’ve got some great jungle partyware ranges available.

Check out the cute ‘Happi Jungle’ range which is perfect for 1st birthdays & baby showers

  

The ‘Go Wild’ range is fun & colourful. A few of our favourite things in this range are the alligator platters and the snake cups!

  

Or if you prefer the big cats then check out the ‘Mini Felines’ range

 

  

 

We’ve got lots of options for leaves and greenery to create a fun jungle vibe including:

green foil curtains - create a quick easy back drop for a photo area or to go behind your cake table

crepe streamers – hang from the ceiling like vines or use to create a ‘streamer wall’ back drop

paper leaves – hang them, pop them on the table or add them to a balloon garland

 

   

 

And there are so many amazing ideas on Pinterest for jungle themed cakes! Here are a few of our favourites which are all simple but very cute (there are more on our Pinterest board: jungle party inspiration)

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.

/cake-cupcake-stands-for-hire

 

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