EDITOR’S NOTE

And so restrictions and isolation continue in this crazy year we call 2020! The second half of the year is one of mixed feelings. Whilst our friends in Brisbane and Perth are slowly getting back into some sort of party norm, our friends in Victoria are not so lucky and NSW is most likely not too far behind.

And in these changes we have seen businesses become more creative and expanding their services. We have seen more DIYs and we have seen parties live on. And if you need some convincing my friends then this edition of our mini-mag is definitely proof that despite the craziness of 2020, parties live on.

Things continue to be tough for everyone, though we Remember #PartySmallerPartyHarder - because a small continue to seek comfort in that fact that things will get party can still be mega on style, as you will soon see! better soon. Take care, all! In 2020 we have seen the party industry suffer and also change. As party throwers / goers we have had to change the PS. THANKS TO ALL THE PEOPLE MAKING THE way we not only host parties but also attend them (masks, WORLD A SAFER AND BETTER PLACE! sanitising stations, face shields, guest restrictions).

showcase our skills in something we don’t get to do every day.

Not only was I made to feel very welcome, but the talent, enthusiasm and skills were next level! This party was a very girly take on a theme that is often put together in a more boyish style. This was a fourth birthday celebration for a dinosaur loving, tutu obsessed little girl!

We opted for lots of pinks and pastels paired with the lush greens of tropical jungles and then the glam of metallics! We fused elements from many of our favourite styles. The props, including the shimmer wall and lace tepee from Party Mamma Party Hire really brought the whole vision and aesthetic together. h

In A Barbie World! PINK CARS, BEACHSIDE LVING, THE BEST WARDROBE –LET’S FACE IT, EVERYONE LOVES BARBIE! THAT’S WHY SHE’LL ALWAYS BE A PERFECT INSPIRATION FOR PARTIES.

IT’S OFFICIAL – BARBIE SOIRÉES ARE NOW A PARTY SENSATION! If you’ve missed all of those Barbie booths flooding your feed you must be hiding under a rug because they are just ubiquitous! Whilst the phenomenon of the Barbie party is by no means a new trend, it seems in the last year (coinciding with her 60th birthday) the Barbie party has been elevated to a new status in the hearts of kids and grownups alike. Our love of selfies and photos have no doubt encouraged the emergence of the popular Barbie booth - I mean, who wouldn’t like to play pretend (especially when it’s an ever-youthful fashion doll), just for two minutes? One of the most endearing things about a Barbie party is that it tranverses themes very easily. Whether going for a tropical vibe, retro aesthetic or something pretty and pink, Barbies are very well suited to the idea. h

Party Mums came to the rescue when they were asked to plan and create an intimate family birthday picnic for a quaran’teen’ager celebrating a milestone birthday during lockdown. The birthday girl’s love of lemons fit perfectly with the theme ‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade’. Party highlights included beautiful scalloped edged tableware with gold foil detail, a white mini drinks trolley serving fresh homemade lemonade, mini lemon balloon straws and a bespoke lemon shaped piñata. The party centrepiece was a vintage dressing table filled with balloons, flowers and eucalyptus, displaying sweet treats which included mini popcorn boxes, chocolate bars, push pop sweeties and personalised cookies. All perfectly matched to the party theme. h
