From baby’s first birthday to tween tea parties – make it a tasteful affair
Your child’s birthday isn’t just a fun excuse for cake and games, it’s an emotional milestone for the parents too. We say mark the occasion with the style it deserves with these tasteful party ideas for children of all ages. From elegant Peter Rabbit styling to a beautiful take on outer space, our themes will delight discerning adults as much as the little ones.
Even though they won’t remember it, baby’s first birthday feels extra special. Keep celebrations small and curated with a tea party at home: our official Peter Rabbit collection makes a picture-perfect theme for babies, with illustrated tableware and a garland that will look sweet hanging in baby’s room once the party’s over. Our Woodland collection, with adorable bears and earthy tones is another option – or go for our puppy and kitten tableware for an equally fun baby theme. Alternatively, a ‘One-der the Sea' party with our sensational Under the Sea range will dazzle your little one and guests in equal measure.
Toddlers love a farm! Our take is more modern than muddy, with pastel colours and painterly illustrations on tableware and garlands, full of cute piggies, roosters and tractors. Little guests will love the party blowers and farm animal ears – guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment. Combine your farm decorations with our Construction range; delight your toddlers as they build towers and race their trucks around, and use our colouring posters as an easy way to keep them busy after lunch!SHOP FARMSHOP CARS & TRAINS

Choosing the right partyware for tweens and teens is just as important as picking the right theme for your toddler or pre-schooler! Interestingly, between 10-13 years-old they may even go for a nostalgic theme they liked in earlier childhood such as pink or roller-skates, or may be hankering for something more grown-up like a sophisticated French tea party theme (our Ladurée collection is the go-to for this). Sports-themed parties are an easy win for this age group too. Either way, getting every detail right from the napkins to the plates and cake topper will keep them smiling.
