Be inspired by our round-up of the most perfect party themes we have seen from our clients this past year.


1. Unicorn Theme

There’s no doubt about it! Unicorn themes were THE most sought-after and celebrated theme this year and we saw so many beautiful parties in this gorgeous girly theme. I predict Unicorn parties will continue to trend in 2018.

2. Enchanted Fairy Theme

When the amazing Miss Kyree Loves asked us to design some party stationery for her baby’s first birthday in Decemeber, we were so excited to come up with the perfect design to match her whimsical mood board for the party. This theme will most certainly be a popular choice for stylish mamas of girls in 2018.

3. Boho/Tribal Theme

This theme became trendy way back in 2015 and it’s still a very popular choice for little boys and girls. Open to interpretation, there are many ways to style this theme to create a unique look for your party. Options include using teepees, tribal headwear, woodland creatures, rustic serving platters, and playing on the “Wild One” phrase through personalised decorations.

4. Paper Plane Theme

Mamas of boys often feel frustrated that there are fewer options for stylish themes compared to all the pretty girly choices available, but Louis’ mama Angela proved all the boy mamas wrong by creating the most elegant and stunning party for her little man this year! The theme was Paper Plane with a “Time Flies” motif used throughout the decorations and stationery. I feel this party theme will be hugely popular in 2018!

9. Little Lamb Theme

I always think it’s lovely to match the party theme with your child’s interests, so choosing a theme around their favourite nursery rhyme is a sweet and sentimental idea for a party that will create precious family memories.
