Among Us

Next, let’s delve into the gaming world with one of the most popular games out there these days – Among Us. Archer’s cool Among Us party featured a sea of blue – fairy floss, cupcakes and jelly. And wait until you see the party favours! Lucky kids!!

Minecraft

Sticking to the gaming theme, Minecraft is another popular request for little gamers. If you’ve been blessed with the request of a Minecraft party, take a party page out of this mum’s book. Aiden’s 10th party was certainly one to remember. Just look at that Creeper balloon wall!

Dinosaurs

The perfect birthday party for a dinosaur fan, Vincent’s mum went all out for her little man’s third birthday. She staged the perfect birthday party for her dino-loving dude complete with plants and dinosaurs both skeletal and otherwise, nests of eggs, personalised water bottles and plant-printed napkins nestled beneath natural kraft cups and plates, all in a lovely earthy colour scheme.

NERF

Ready, aim, fire – this NERF-themed party would have been a huge hit! Not only did the guests enjoy a massive NERF gun war, but were treated with an epic NERF cake, cake pops and cookies. Not the mention some serious NERF swag to take home!

Another great birthday party theme, if you don’t have a heap of NERF guns lying around, is a Laser Tag party. 


Australiana 

Oaklen’s adorable Australiana themed birthday party was a tasteful tribute to all things Aussie with koalas and echidnas galore and a table full of Aussie treats – cob loaf, fairy bread and vegemite pinwheels.

Get ready to be wowed by this insanely beautiful My Little Pony-themed party, complete with a full pony carousel table of pastel-themed goodies. Party games included Pin the Tale on the Pony (naturally) and guests all took home a scrumptious party pack plus their own little Pony.

Cottontail Bunny

If your little one loves bunnies, then you’ll want to hop to this Cottontail-themed party. The mini cakes and carrots (of course), the darling decorations, the pastel party treats – we love it all!

Time to par-tea! And want to know the best thing about it? Most of the decorations and party supplies came from Kmart (score!).

Speaking of Kmart, how’s this for an out-of-the-box birthday party theme – a Kmart treasure hunt? 


Trolls

We’ll end our birthday party round-up with this special party for a very special gal who loves Trolls. Birthday girl Britt, who turned 26, was overjoyed by her supermum’s efforts to pull off a Trolls-themed soiree for her.

Britt was treated to Trolls lollipops, cupcakes and a Poppy and Brick cake.
