What do you do when the parties you throw for your kids are so stunning in every way that the guests – and their parents – gasp in delight? You open up a party store, that’s what!
Remember the delightful Snow White birthday we featured in our party section a few months ago? Well Simone, the mum behind that particular bash, has rather nicely decided to share her knack for finding just-so party bits and pieces with the rest of us. Invite Me, the stationary design business she started after throwing in her graphic art job to raise her daughters, is now Invite Me, boutique partyware place extraordinaire.
Simone and business partner Amanda have stocked their online store with the sorts of things that dream parties are made of. Of course, there’s Simone’s delightful invitations in dozens of different designs for boys and girls. But there’s also stunning cake stands and candy jars for creating picture-perfect sweets buffets, there’s mini glass bottles to go with the paper straws, there’s tableware with spots or without, beautiful fabric buntings, quirky tissue paper garlands and everything else imaginable for a supremely stylish celebration.
Once you’ve oohed and aaahed your way through the plethora of paper pompoms and cupcake wrappers, you’ll also find the most incredible array of party favours. Our particular favourites are the oversized carnival windmills pictured up top ($4.95) and the pretty pastel coloured ribbon wands below ($7.95 each), but there’s plenty more to take your fancy.
To celebrate their grand opening, Invite Me is giving away two party packs – one for girls and one for boys – worth more than $60 each to two lucky Babyologists. The girls pack includes a set of six pink cupcake or princess invitations with matching stickers and goody bag tags, six pink ribbon wands and a pack of pink striped paper straws. For boys, there’s six blue car or rocket invitations with matching stickers and goody bag tags, six whirly windmills and a pack of blue striped paper straws For your chance to win, just leave a comment in the post below by September 10, telling us which party pack you’d like and why.
If that’s not enough to put you in the mood for a party, Invite Me is also offering Babyologists a generous twenty-five per cent off all purchases with discount code BABYOLOGY25 until 18 September. Happy celebrating!
