Party Mums love growing with you. Most of our new work comes from word-of-mouth and recommendations. We love that our clients ask us to come back year after year, occasion after occasion.

 

ADVENTURE CAMPING PARTY

This was a really fun party to plan and style. With an equal mix of boys and girls attending, we needed to find a theme that would work for all and this was the perfect theme. The party colours were kept monochrome, which work really well when you are surrounded by nature. Two mini camp fires were set up, with camping stools in a circle around the fire, creating a boys camp and a girls camp. There was only one thing everyone wanted to eat round the fire.....sausages!! Wooden crates and mini buckets were used to display the rest of the party food which included snake cupcakes, dirt desserts, donuts and a sweetie corner filled with treats that included bear poop, grizzly bears, twigs, blood worms and wild berries. With the camp fires still lit, it seemed only right that the guests should help themselves at the s'mores station and load up a stick with yummy marshmallows to toast. Party favors were mini kraft boxes covered in moss, containing all the essential supplies needed for a camping adventure. What a great day everyone had.

LUCY'S 8TH BIRTHDAY PONY PARTY

This party focused on bringing the outdoor feel inside. A hessian table runner with a grass runner on top, really gave the table texture and the mini ponies and hay bales placed around the table were perfect for the theme. Other equestrian elements included mini trophies, tack boxes for snacks and rosettes and raffia garland decorations for the room. The pink floral and gold patterns on the tableware looked gorgeous and were perfect for an older girls party. This was the perfect pony party for Lucy and she awarded it first place! 

ASHLEY'S BABY SHOWER

This baby shower had a lovely vintage feel to it, with a classic afternoon tea menu. Tea was served from vintage china teapots on a wooden drinks trolley and an assortment of china cups and saucers were placed on the main table, ready to be filled. Sweet treats included cake pops decorated in soft tones of blue and cupcakes with little blue booties on top placed on individual cake stands, looked super cute. Classic vest shaped cookies, decorated in white with silver edging almost looked too good to eat!A backdrop with soft white curtains, a string of bibs and metallic letters spelling "Baby Shower" was the perfect spot for photo opportunities and a last chance to photo the Mummy to be before baby arrives.

 

KATY's 6TH BIRTHDAY PRINCESS PARTY

Pink, pink and more pink! When you’re 6 years old there’s only one colour choice for your party. This was a real royal party with tiaras for each guest to wear and a fairytale castle on the table, displaying delicious cupcakes in co ordinating pink and duck egg blue. A delicate garland with flowers and princesses hung behind the table and beautiful sugar pink balloons with tissue tassels completed the look. Guests left the party with luxury party bags filled with treats. It’s fair to say that this party had the royal approval.

GEORGE'S 1ST BIRTHDAY DINOSAUR PARTY

George absolutely loves dinosaurs, so it was very easy to pick a party theme to suit him. The Stegosaurus centrepiece was a big hit, with a wobbly head, googly eyes and a button to press that “roared” loudly. This entertained all the guests during their lunch, which included cupcakes with 3D dinosaur toppers and cake pops in a coordinating green colour. The party hats were 3D triceratops with googly eyes that the guests just loved running around making dinosaur noises in!! Decorations included a bright coloured dinosaur banner that complimented the tableware and bright balloons with crepe streamers. A truly jurassic party suitable for any young budding paleontologist!

MOROCCAN THEME 10TH BIRTHDAY PARTY

What a fabulous party this was to plan, bursting with colour and full of gorgeous features that would easily work for an adult party too. We are so excited to be able to share the photos with you.The brief was to create an evening party for a 10th birthday, the guest list was small, only 8 guests in total, but the idea was big. The birthday girl wanted a grown up theme and if possible an outdoor party, which living in the UK is a challenge in itself. She didn't want it to be formal, just more of a chilled out affair, with a few games for fun too. After coming up with various ideas, we knew we had it right when the moroccan theme started to come together. A large marquee was the first priority, no chance of the weather spoiling this event! With informal seating inside, which were floor cushions and a table at low level, this gave the feeling of being an intimate affair with a relaxed atmosphere. Bright colours for the tableware and a mix of different fabrics, plus a lantern centrepiece completed the look. Gold fringed curtains covered the doorway and a red roped barrier prevented access to the marquee, with a VIP entrance sign on display. This was a select party, strictly for invited guests with a VIP badge. What could be more exciting than that to a group of 10 year olds?

JACK's 5TH BIRTHDAY MAGIC PARTY

This party is bursting with bright colours, a real feast for the eyes. A magician and his rabbit appear on all the tableware, but the rabbit ear treat cups have to be our favourite item, they are just too cute. Other party elements included bunting, balloons and photo booth props. Party favors for guests in cellophane treat bags included, a magic wand, pack of cards, fortune telling fish and dice, along with sweet treats. Jack’s eyes really lit up when he saw his party for the first time, it seems we really had conjured up a magical party. 

PAULA'S BABY SHOWER

A beautiful afternoon tea party we set up for Paula's baby shower, vintage, dreamy and ever so cute. Soft pinks and blues were used for the decorations, along with plenty of white floaty fabrics. Fine china teapots and cups and saucers were used to serve the food and drinks and lots of different cake stands displayed the cute cupcakes, cookies and cake pops. A sweetie corner with glass jars had some old style favourite sweets in, like flying saucers and flumps and there were plenty of party games and lots of giggles as guests enjoyed one last big get together before the new arrival.

MAGICAL 7TH BIRTHDAY FAIRY PARTY

The perfect party theme for a 7 year old girl. This party was so sweet and magical, with fairy wings and wands and lots of pink and purple to satisfy any little girl. Party guests enjoyed making their own fairy gardens from kit boxes we put together, containing gems, moss, miniature brooms, signs, flowers and much, much more. There were mini wooden fairy houses to decorate and a trays to put it all on. Hidden out in the garden were small jars with party guests names on, containing their own fairy to put in their fairy garden. What a surprise it was when the guests realised they could take their fairy garden home! Party food included finger sandwiches and enough fairy cakes for everyone!

 

THOMAS' 3RD BIRTHDAY PIRATE PARTY

To be a real pirate you need a ship and the centrepiece for this party was a fabulous galleon, complete with cannon, pirates and a gold anchor. It also happened to be a great display to put the cupcakes on too. The tablecloth was a giant treasure map and there were pirate hats with skull and crossbones for all to wear. Party games included Party Mums pass the parcel and a game of pin the patch on the pirate. When it was home time, party bags with gold rope handles and a skull image with googly eyes kept the theme going and goodies inside included pirate bubbles, pirate tattoo’s, glider, parachute man, lollipop and a chocolate pirate. Thomas loved his party, so luckily we didn’t have to walk the plank!

GRACE'S 1ST BIRTHDAY CIRCUS PARTY

What lovely delicate pastel colours there are in this circus party, perfect for a little boy or girl. So many gorgeous features, including a circus train centrepiece to place snacks in, party hats in the style of a circus big top and circus animals including, elephants, seals, fish, giraffes and lions decorating the tableware. Polka dots, candy stripes and scalloped edges appear throughout the decorations and confetti filled balloons complete the look. A special celebration for a very special little girl.

AMIRAH'S 16TH BIRTHDAY PARTY

Planning a sweet 16th birthday party can be a tricky task. It's just that awkward age where you cant be too cutesy with your theme or colours, yet too much of a grown up theme can be a real no no. However planning this 16th party was no problem at all, especially when the birthday girl Amirah, knew exactly the look she was after.  The colour theme for her party was a very classy palette of gold, silver and black. The centre point of the room, which was also the dance floor, we filled with balloons floating high above with twisty ribbon tails hanging down. We created a gold fringed backdrop with gold letter balloons, spelling out "Happy Birthday" and giant gold number 16 balloons. Amirah achieved the look she was after by sticking to a colour theme and it totally transformed the room, a very sophisticated 16th birthday party! 

JAMES'S 4TH BIRTHDAY POW WOW PARTY

This was such an usual theme, but we absolutely loved it. We sourced mini canoes, tipis and hay bales for the table, which we placed on a grass runner that really made the bright colours stand out. Feather shaped bunting and matching feather headdress for guests to wear and cacti, tipi and aztec patterns on the tableware. This pow wow party really looked like a mini native Indian settlement, it’s no wonder James couldn’t work out “Hau” we had achieved it.

VINNIE'S BAPTISM

A baptism is a very special occasion and a great opportunity to bring all your family and friends together. We were asked to decorate the function room and provide activities and party favors for all the children attending Vinnie's baptism. Keeping things simple we followed the style and colours of the party invite and hung fabric bunting, with contrasting blue colour paper lanterns around the room. Giant balloons with tissue tassel tails were dotted here and there and groups of marbled blue balloons decorated the tables. A colouring station was set up with masks that the children could decorate and wear and party bags were filled with treats and toys that would keep the children happy all party long.
