Creating a stylish party with unique details and that WOW factor doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming even if you aren’t much of the hostess!!

By sticking with the essential for your tablescape you are half way there and all you need to add is some stunning balloons as a backdrop and you’re done!

Decorations bring the fun element to any event and what’s a party without balloons! A balloon backdrop is such a stunning decoration that’s so simple to put together. We love these pink, blue and metallic confetti jumbo balloons with streamers and tassels. Simply fill with helium and arrange behind your dessert table to create a striking backdrop. You can find these balloons and other foil and fancy balloons all under the BALLOONS tab on our website.

The tableware you chose will set the scene of your event and we have all the partyware supplies at your fingertips, all in one place on our website.

Below is a list of all the essential party tableware items that will get your tabletop looking beautiful and your entertaining a breeze! Paper tableware is an easy and inexpensive way to work in with your chosen theme with the added bonus of no cleaning!  Our Pastel Bright range of party paper plates feature beautiful pops of colour with a ruffled edge and gold fold detail. They are perfect for both outdoor and indoor celebrations. We have also designed gold foil cocktail speckle napkins to compliment the range.


We fell in love with Pantone’s Duck Egg Green and combined it with a touch of gold and black. This colour is so versatile and perfect for almost any occasion – birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, a party in the park or even at the races – think Melbourne Spring racing carnival where the champagne flows all day and the hors d’oeuvres, cheese, and crackers are displayed on our stylish party tableware!!

It’s always a good idea to have stylish paper plates and cups handy for all those occasions where you don’t want to bring out the fine china yet want something beautiful for your celebration.

If you are planning around a particular colour theme these plates and cups come in many other colours – gorgeous pinks and purple, a stunning deep blue and a sunny yellow – check out all the gorgeous colours under the TABLEWARE tab on our website.

A white or a pastel coloured tablecloth keeps it fresh and will make the colours of your tableware pop! Black party cutlery works nicely or you can choose elegant gold flatware for a more glamorous touch.

Fresh florals sure have a way of elevating your table top to the next level. We have chosen kangaroo claws from our local florist Azalea in South Melbourne that features stunning pink flowers and sturdy long black stems. These florals can be arranged directly on the table to add that unique decorative touch. The best way to stretch your budget is to ask your florist to make up a bunch with lots of greenery and a few seasonal blooms – greenery works well scattered directly on the table or in a vase.

The key elements of any party are the desserts of course!! and the sweets you chose for your tabletop spread will be a feast for the eyes.

No party is complete without a cake or two or three!! Beautiful buttercream and fondant creations by the talented Vanessa at Pastel and Bloom are a vision of loveliness! Cupcakes dressed in gold glitter cupcake wrappers or desserts in cups are a few more pretty addition that will bring your dessert table together – display your desserts on cake stands in varying sizes and heights to create a cute display for each dessert.

To elevate your cake to the next level you can add a fun script laser topper to your cake. We have cake toppers for birthday celebrations, baby showers and my more to suit any party theme you are planning around. Best of all our acrylic toppers are reusable! To add a bit of fun to your tablescape we love these fancy balloon cake toppers.

Take a look at our black, gold glitter and gold mirror acrylic Party for Stella range of acrylic cake toppers where you will find a topper suitable for your cake

And there you have it……one stylish soiree!!
