If you are organising a party I may have found the perfect website for the supplies! Just up the road from me (by chance) is the Party Bag and Supplies company.
While DD is now too old for me to need their party bags (though being able to buy ready filled themed party bags is a pretty cool idea! and prices start at £1 each) no one is ever too old for a party.
The site is really easy to search and browse and they have excellent selections of themed sets of paper plates, napkins, cups, table cloths, balloons and gifts.
So whether you opt for a cartoon style kids party, an animal theme or something more grown up there will be something for your celebration. Search by simple colour, including gold or silver (great for wedding anniversaries) or by theme, the A-Z of kids party themes has a lot more than 26 options from Angry Birds, through Disney to Zootropolis! A party set of 8 place settings with a Zootropolis theme is only £10.
But while I did love all the kids themed things it was the more retro things I decided to try out, and I was not disappointed. I chose items from the Truly Scrumptious party selection, and I was impressed not only by their beauty but by the quality too. I especially loved the easily put together cake stand with reversible tiers. I regret not getting doilies too! But I was pleased I chose tiny cake flags for decoration.
The fact that our set included decorated floral cake cases too, just forced DD and I to bake some cakes to show it all off to it's full potential. I can't help thinking that it would make a delightful Alice in Wonderland party, all we needed was a dormouse in a teapot.
I really liked the idea of using these paper plates for a summer party and will be using them at festivals too I think (no washing up!) and of course I shall be using the pretty bunting whenever I can.
You can browse the vast range of products at the Party Bags and Supplies website and if you follow them on twitter, you might even get a discount code. 💰
Disclosure : I was sent the set of paper tableware for the purposes of the review but all the opinions and words are my own.
