Party Bags & Supplies Review and Giveaway

Party Bags & Supplies Review and Giveaway: Birthdays a pretty big deal in our house, I always try to make them extra special normally starting planning about six weeks in advance. Both the boys have early Summer birthdays which is the perfect time of year to host something at home and in the garden. Although saying that we have been caught out before weather wise and with Monkey starting school and now having a class of twenty odd kids this year will be the first year we hire a hall. He has requested a SuperHero party this time round. However before Monkey turns five Kipper has his first birthday!

We will be holding two parties for Kipper, one with his little NCT buddies and a family gathering at home. Ive learnt my lesson on the later, first time round with Monkey we had a huge get together and I spent the whole time entertaining and hardly any time with Monkey at all. It went by in such a flash I think we only managed one photo of the three of us and we didn’t even get round to cutting the cake. This time round it will be a much quieter affair.

Monkey’s First Birthday Party theme was The Hungry Caterpillar and strangely enough we have settled on the same theme for the NCT party. Its perfect as we have a little group of both boys and girls, the bright colours instantly appeal and we all love the story. You can read all about Monkey’s Hungry Caterpillar Birthday here, I also have a Pinterest board set up. Its scary to think I was planning the same themed party almost five years ago. Now I went a little over board with the theming but you don’t have to, one of the easiest way to theme a party is by buying table ware. With all the NCT mums having at least one other child and many of us being back at work, we have decided to keep the stress levels to a minimum and have done just that. Our party ware has come from Party Bags & Supplies.

One of the things I look for when choosing where to buy our party supplies from online is that they have a wide range of themes. Especially as I will be buying for more than one Birthday at a time now. Fast delivery is also very important as inevitably I will have forgotten something or we will have a few extra unplanned guests and need something last minute. If found their website very easy to navigate and everything is grouped together. Party Bags and Supplies also have party kits which include pre filled party bags making life even easier. If you want to make up your own then there is also a large range of well priced toys and gifts.

Not needing party bags this time round I ordered items individually and I was really surprised with how much we could get for just over £30 despite ordering branded pieces

  • Two Hungry Caterpillar Party Pack for 12 which were £10.99 each
  • An extra packet of 12 Hungry Caterpillar plates at £3.50
  • Two extra packets of 12 Hungry Caterpillar cups at £3.00 each

To make the money go even further they offer unpatterned coloured table ware which you could mix up with branded bits. With a pack of 8 plates starting at £1.13 thats really good value. The items arrived promptly and well packaged so there was no chance of anything getting damaged or squashed. I will be ordering from them again especially as they have a huge range of SuperHero supplies. If you are currently organising a Birthday party then you may want to check out my Party Checklist which hopefully will help take some of the stress out of it. If you are looking for some inspiration then have a look at some of our other themes such as The Gruffalo, Going on a Bear Hunt (my favourite) and Paw Patrol.

    We’ve managed to avoid throwing a full on kids party for my son just yet, but I’m conscious that this will probably be the last year we can get away with it! I love the look of this set, it’s a really cute theme, and I love the low stress aspect to it even more! The thought of party bags is one of the most fear inducing things ever, so pre-filled ones sound an absolute dream! #TriedTested

    Can recall nephew many years ago had a Birthday party at local Community Centre. he had family and friends who attended the party. Music and refreshments as well as party games were enjoyed. He seemed absolutely delighted that his Great Aunt attended, he was fond of her. Just as we her nieces and nephews were fond of her. Though she had not married or had children she was good with children, as well as adults. Maybe it came from her having been socialised with adults and children in the times when families and friends visited each others homes, had afternoon teat and a chat etc. He continues to have fond memories of her which is nice. She is well remembered by many of us. I would like to think that her friendly welcoming spirit lives on. That maybe we have learnt from her friendly interaction, kindness, Caring nature etc.
