Let The Celebrations Bloom

26 Sep 2016

With the weather warming up, it's time to take the party outdoors! Here, everything you need to let the celebrations bloom (on a budget).

THE ESSENTIALS

A party without decorations is like a tree without leaves. Ensure your decorations exert joy and good vibes, where first picking a simple colour scheme will help you to figure out the rest. Your party needs may differ depending on the type of celebration, but in any case, simply making a checklist will allow you to properly prepare. To help you out, here's a list of awesome items you may want to add:

  • Balloons
  • Banners
  • Streamers
  • Confetti
  • Novelty Bubbles
  • Party Hats
  • Streamers
  • Board Games
  • A Piñata (still fun at any age)

You can find these party essentials and more at Big W and Woolworths, and save!

Food, glorious food! So maybe you can't cook, but guess what? We won't tell. Thanks to Sumo Salad's sensational and delicious catering options, your amazing feed is just a form away. Because we all have our strengths and weaknesses, so when it comes to things we're not so great at - don't stress, leave it to the pros! However, one thing we can do pretty well is play that funky music...

THE MUSIC

If you like your Top 40 hits more than your classics, your rap over rock, or you simply like a bit of everything and anything that sounds good - JB Hi-Fi has you covered. Choose from an extensive range of genres including compilations and mixtapes for keeping the party game strong. Just like a person's taste in movies, your taste in music is personal but when it comes to party time, we recommend variety. Here, all-time favourites and greatest hits should do the trick! Prepare for impromptu karaoke.

THE SERVINGWARE

Whether you opt for a tea-party, an American frat party with red cups or a candle-lit dinner outdoors, consistency is always key. This doesn't mean everything has to match, but it does mean that balance is essential. Having the right contrast helps to set the mood, motivates your guest to unwind and makes you - the ultimate party host.

THE MEMORIES

Let the good times keep on coming! Capture the fun right there and then with the quintessential instant camera; both fashionable and compact. With a Fujifilm Instax, you can take "hipster snaps" in no time. These instant, cute-sized pictures prove the perfect sentimental gift for your friends to take home and adore. You can also collect your instant pictures for creating a cool wall collage displaying your fondest memories and adventures. If minimalism is more your style, then your interior will love this idea.

Party up without breaking the bank at MacArthur Central for all your entertainment, food & drink, specialty and tech needs - to plan an event your guests won't forget! Store trading hours vary.

Celebrate good times, come on!
