I am so excited to have finally figured out how to reach out to you guys on this thing lol! Technology is not my strong suit clearly but I’m in awe of it and embracing it nonetheless to share with you lots of exciting news and trends in the party supplies industry!
I want to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you! I am so grateful for your support of my small business. I intend to share an email with you, my valued customers just a couple of times a year to bring you some ideas and inspiration for your next special occasion.
I know it has been such a tough year for all of us. Personally speaking, it’s getting to spend time with friends and family that has been the thing above all else I have missed most. BUT, I believe there is definitely a mood shift in these last few weeks, spring has sprung, the days are longer and brighter, there is a sense of hope as vaccines roll out and education reopens. We’re getting there and soon we will be able to meet up with those we love.
That said I am a realist and realise that when this happens it is probably going to be safest outdoors and in small groups from a couple of households. With this in mind, I have put a lot of time into selecting some really exciting ranges for all your outdoor meet up requirements for the season ahead. So whether it's celebrating a well overdue catch up in the garden, classic afternoon tea with a granny you’ve missed very much or a teddy bears picnic in the woods as a fun playdate to plan with a friend and their family, there is something for everyone.
Have an Egg-cellent Easter!
I’m pretty sure we are all really looking ahead to Easter, I for one am off chocolate until then and I can’t wait for multiple eggs on Easter Sunday! I think the excitement and hype is far greater than it has ever been with people going all out to make this our best Easter yet. With that in mind, I have carefully handpicked a range of gorgeous decorations to get your home ready for Easter.
From pretty pastels and hope-inspiring rainbows collections to fab bunnies, chicks and Easter Egg Hunt kits, we’ve got something for everyone to ensure the whole family can make the most of the opportunity to celebrate this Easter.

These have also become really popular for online catch ups and celebrations where the organiser sends a little zoom kit out to each of their guests to take part in a zoom, teams or a facetime celebration which is a really nice idea I felt it was worth sharing with you all.

Wedding & Special Occasion Trends
My heart goes out to all those couples and their families that have had so much uncertainty around their big days since the pandemic started, it should be such an exciting build-up and I feel many couples missed out on that, yet on the other hand I know from so many brides who have touched base that the smaller more intimate weddings they have shared with their families have been very, very special indeed.
For any of you looking for some inspo on the latest trends in the party supplies industry, I have found that the wedding trends often carry through to other special celebrations in time for example hen parties, baby showers, christenings, communions, confirmations, and indeed birthday parties. So with that in mind when buying for the season ahead I try to source high-quality mix and match products that work really well together to serve a whole range of customer requirements. I hope you find some inspiration for your special occasion, wedding or otherwise amongst them here.
