Decorating a party is my favourite part of the planning process. You can be completely creative with your theme or colour scheme and bring your ideas to life in front of your party guests. If you’re not super-creative though, the process of decorating your celebration may be daunting. This is where online party shops like Pink Frosting and Baby Showers Australia can help! The range make decorating easier because the helpful people at these shops have arranged all of the party decorations into themes and colour schemes so you can mix and match the party supplies for your theme and taste, as well as for your budget.
I’m starting a new series today focusing on party presentation ideas. There are so many beautiful blogs around the world to give you excellent ideas on how to present your party. Some of my favourites are Hostess with the Mostess, Pizzazzerie, Kara’s Party Ideas and Amy Atlas’ Blog. You can subscribe to these blogs to get daily inspiration for your party and see how the experts do it. Many of these blogs also present real party ideas and galleries – straight from the house of people just like you and I – people who just love to entertain and have created a really beautiful party. The catalogue of ideas will have you inspired for years of creative parties!
Then you have amazing websites filled with party planning tips and ideas. The one you’re reading now – Australia Entertains - is packed with tips to make your party perfect. Others that we adore and turn to for inspiration include Martha Stewart’s most excellent website which could have your days filled for months reading entertaining tips and inspirational ideas, the Pink Frosting party ideas website is packed with great Australian ideas for party planning including seasonal menus and flower guides for our part of the world, and although it’s not very pretty, the About Entertaining pages are packed with great party tips and etiquette guides.
Finally, even if you’re planning a christening or kids birthday party, you should visit the exquisite wedding ideas blogs for inspiration. Our favourite wedding blogs are the ultimate Australian wedding blog Polka Dot Bride, the spectacular daily swoon-fest at Style me Pretty and Brooklyn Bride, as well as the lovely and entertaining features at Wedding Chicks.
So over the coming months, we’ll explore great party presentation ideas. The first will be cupcake wrappers, which must be my all-time favourite indulgent party decoration!
