Bear-ly Wait Baby Shower

We can Bear-ly Wait

As soon as I saw this Bear-ly Wait Baby Shower range I knew it would be perfect for a blog post to accompany it & I had to do one as soon as I could. I could bear-ly wait and couldn’t contain my excitement, as like I have previously mentioned, I do love a theme. So now the wait is over lets get started…

This range predominately features a Bear holding bunting that says 'It's a Boy', in a woodland environment, with plenty of trees and natural inspired colours, which is offset against a dark blue, almost green.  The bear also has some friendly woodland friends with him including a cute fox and squirrel. 

I do love a theme and this range could be styled with a variety of items, put alongside to compliment the nature that is featured in this range. This could include using wood slices, leaves, pine cones and acorns as well as plenty of fresh greenery. This time of year is perfect for that & it is a great opportunity to go outdoors on a walk and find things that could go alongside the party products. 

You could include the outdoor feel through a variety of items for the Baby Shower. You could add touches of the outdoors to a sweet table or even make your own nature inspired decorations. 

I saw this sign on a Google search and thought it would be perfect for this range – especially as it features a bear and fox. 

This range screams Autumn and as we are now entering that time of this year, this range  would be perfect for upcoming baby showers. 

Plus, Autumn time and colder days, what could be more perfect then a Hot Chocolate bar? I personally love this idea of a Hot Chocolate Bar, especially as the mum to be won’t be able to drink alcohol so this is a great alternative. Plus it is suitable for all ages – young and old. 

You could make up a batch of regular hot chocolate and then have various additions, that people can use to top it and pimp it to their taste. 

You can include a variety of toppings. What about:

  • Mini & regular Marshmallows
  • Whipped Cream 
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Grated Chocolate 
  • Cinnamon
  • Chocolate chips
  • Orange Zest
  • Selection of sauces: Chocolate, caramel 

You could also make your own Hot Chocolate with real Chocolate, for added luxury. 

Create this by melting your chocolate of choice in a mix of double cream and milk. You could also create a few batches using a variety of different types of chocolate. 

I styled a naming day with a similar woodland feel and these ideas or something similar could be used alongside this range also.

I combined natural products with props that fitted in within the theme. Including cuddly toys and also story books that had characters that would be at home in the forest, including The Gruffalo. I also used a fake grass table runner across the table and then placed everything on top. 

A children table was also styled and kept within the theme. By sourcing woodland animal masks and also using a jar of the wild flowers and a very effective red balloon with white dots to resemble a toadstool. 

I displayed wild flowers in jam jars to follow on with the natural theme. I also made this stick vase. I used an empty tin can and I decorated with sticks that I collected while out on a walk. 

I just used a hot glue gun to glue the sticks directly onto the tin. I used a variety of sizes to help with the natural feel, then finished it with a jute twine bow. 

Favours also followed the theme by making individual gingerbread owl cookies. All placed within  wicker style tray and finished with a jute and lace bow. 

A few of my favourite items from the range

Bear-ly Wait Supershape Balloon - £5.99
Bear-ly Wait Table Decorating Kit - £5.99
Bear-ly Wait Plates - £2.59

We hope you have enjoyed reading this blog, as much as we have writing it. 

If you have a friend or a family member who is expecting a baby boy and can bear-ly wait to meet him, then please share this with them.

 

Mermaid Party | Fit for any Little Mermaid

A Mermaid Party

A Mermaid Party has been a big party trend for years. From the days of Arial, a mermaid party has always been a great choice. Plus now with the live version of The Little Mermaid coming to cinemas in August, this theme won’t be disappearing any time soon.

No wonder we have so many Mermaid party ranges still been released and continuing throughout 2018. Currently we have 4 Mermaid ranges available on the Party Ease website: Mermaid Wishes, Be a Mermaid & Magical Mermaids have all been released this year.

So dive underwater, grab all your Mermaid friends and lets have a party that Arial would be proud of!

Mermaid Wishes

Mermaid Wishes, Mermaid Party

This is a gorgeous range that features a stunning colour scheme of purple, gold & turquoise. This really creates more of a grown up feel, so would be perfect for older girls. Plus the play on words has to be one of may favourites things ever – perfect way to shellebrate! It has a great selection of tableware, decorations and even tattoos!

The range also has a great selection of decorations. Mermaid Wishes, Mermaid PartyThe selection of balloons in this range is brilliant & would be perfect for creating a really visual display – perhaps at the entrance of the party venue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be a Mermaid 

Be a Mermaid, Mermaid Party

This range would be great for younger girls who love everything about Mermaids. The colour palette has more of a pastel feel with pale pinks and blues. In the range there is tableware with a selection of the usual plates & cups etc but also has some surprise additions.

Including some party bag fillers that include a selection of necklaces, bracelets, rings and hair slides, that will be perfect for adorning any Mermaids. be a Mermaid, Mermaid Party

Magical Mermaids

This range really has a touch of magic to it & the products almost look like they are sparkling, almost like the sun when it reflects on the surface of water. Magical Mermaids, Mermaid Party

The party game in this range is a take on the popular pin the tail on the donkey, but for this is replaced with a mermaid and seahorse stickers. The game would be a great addition to any Mermaid party.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mermaid Friends 

Mermaid Friends Mermaid PartyThis range just excludes happiness – looking at this range you can’t help but smile!

The mermaid is surrounded by all her sea creature friends and they look like they will make sure the party is great, so don’t think you will need much more! She looks like she has it all sorted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you have chosen your favourite tableware make sure you add in some personal touches to make sure that the party is perfect for you. I think welcome signs are a great way of adding a personal touch to any party. I personally love a sign (or 2). They are an easy yet cheap way to add a special touch to your party. You can even personalise them and include the name of your very own little Mermaid.

So be a Mermaid and make some waves and have an absolutely mer-mazing party!!

A totally EPIC party

Epic Party ideas | How to throw an EPIC Birthday Party

BOYS…Boys will always be boys & throwing them a party can be tricky. They are always changing their minds. What they like is always changing at a moments notice & as parents you are always the last to be told. But are meant to bet the first to know that they haven’t liked whatever since last week!! 

As they get older, it gets even harder to throw them a birthday party.  Deciding on a particular theme can be difficult. They are to old for the classic Pirates or Cowboys, so choices can be limited. But not now, now there is EPIC. 

EPIC combines all that boys love. It includes: fast food, gaming, hashtags, emojis just to mention a few.  Combined all in one party theme. The theme has coordinating tableware & decorations that are designed perfectly for older boys. The range can be a great starting part for the start of a totally EPIC party. You can add your own touches, like decoration, party games etc for your very own totally epic party. 

We have shared a few of our own EPIC party ideas for you…

Epic party ideas food

EPIC Party Food ideas

The EPIC range is filled with all things fast! So when you are thinking about food to serve at the party – this is a great place to start. Think burgers, chips, pizza & put together build your own.

Have a table set up with burger buns, lettuce, ketchup, cheese & other toppings so they can build their burger their own way.

Or your very own pizzeria – with ready made bases, selection of cheeses, meat products: ham, hot-dogs, pepperoni & few vegetables…(might not be used)

Then have some chips & sauce to go alongside your epic food.

EPIC Party Decoration ideas

When it comes to older boys less is more when it comes to decorations. So make your decorations stand out & create a big impact. 

Balloons are great. They create a massive impact & straight away they say party.

A birthday banner is always a good decoration & helps celebrate the occasion & you can get those that coordinate to carry on the theme & create even more of an impact. 

A few balloons & a banner really is all you need for an older boys birthday. 

Epic party slime

EPIC Party Favour ideas

Everybody loves a favour, something to take home with them. You just need to take into consideration the ages of those attending, 

There not just for young children & why should they be. What to put in them gets a bit tricky though. 

So why not think more EPIC…how about a game voucher or some XBOX points or a mini toy dart gun or a gumball machine. Just need to think outside the box to think of something that they would enjoy. 

Or how about getting them to make their own slime to take home? Slime is so popular lately & could be a great activity for them to do at the party & to take home with them as well. Double EPIC!

Check out the glow in the dark slime on our EPIC pinterest board.

Party themes 2018

Party Trends 2018 & New Releases.

2018 has been a great year for new product ranges and so far there have been some ranges in a variety of themes already released. So what better than a post with all this new releases in and the occasions they can be used for as well as party trends for 2018.

 

Party Trends 2018. 

Unicorns is still a popular trend – they really are everywhere at the moment and there is no sign of them going anywhere soon. So many ranges have a Unicorn theme.  Another trend going into 2018 is Mermaid parties – what could be better than an underwater party theme.  Rainbows are also making there way into trends this year as well. What could be better then a brightly coloured rainbow! You could also bring this trend into your party differently by focusing on the colours and using tableware and decorations to mirror a rainbow.  Rose Gold is also another trend that we are seeing everywhere. From fashion to home-ware – so there is no doubt that this trend wouldn’t follow in to partyware. And it most definitely has. 

Baby Shower Themes

Carousel Party 

This new range is a great choice for Baby Showers and has a great design that features colourful carousel horses. 

Sunshine Baby

This range is a beautiful choice for a more gender neutral shower, but yet something that still has colour. It has a lovely happy cloud design and it really is very cute.

A Party Fit for a Unicorn

We LOVE a Unicorn

With it been National Unicorn Day this week I thought what a great time to do a blog post all about UNICORNS! Unicorn parties have been a massive trend and it doesn’t show much signs of it slowing down. Plus everywhere you go you will be seeing Unicorns, Unicorns and more Unicorns. A Unicorn party is suitable for all ages – young or old and the Unicorn theme doesn’t just have to be limited to birthday parties. You could incorporate Unicorns into pretty much every celebration.

So far this year 3 brand new Unicorn themed party ranges have been launched and all are very different in style but have one thing in common, yes you guessed it – Unicorns.

Unicorn Sparkle

Unicorn Sparkle is just as the name suggests and is full of both. The range features gold shiny foiled accent details and it is really does shine.  This range features pastel colours and would be suitable for a younger girls birthday party and has some great products including some really pretty decorations including a gorgeous bunting that has dovetail pennants and a pastel coloured marble effect background. With each pennant having a letter on and it spelling our Happy Birthday in gold writing with a Unicorn head separating the two words. unicorn sparkle bunting

You also get 12 different photo props that are so pretty and have the cutest woodland animals including: a fawn, fox cub and raccoon on.

Make a Wish Unicorn

Make a Unicorn

 

Make a Wish Unicorn is a pretty, iridescent party range with some well thought out added extra design details included. The iridescent detail is continued throughout the range and is on most of the products.  The design and details in this range make it more of a grown up range and more suitable for an older birthday or even for an adult celebration. It could even be used as a Baby Shower range and would be a lovely way to ‘make a wish’ for the new arrival. The range has tableware, decorations and some different products including a pinata and a make a wish candle. Unicorn party bagsMy favourite product from the Make a Wish Unicorn range has to be the party bags.  The party bags have the iridescent design, that coordinates throughout the range with an iridescent Unicorn cutout on the front and the cutest pink tissue tassel paper mane. The thought and the attention to detail that this adds really is brilliant and adds something even more special to a normal item like a party bag.
