I get asked for unicorn party supplies a lot! So here are my top unicorn party ideas for creating a magical unicorn theme.  Build your theme You know I love a statement piece that you can build your theme around.

    Celebrating The King’s Coronation with Kids

    The King’s Coronation will be here before we know it, and it’s as good an excuse as any for a party! So here’s my advice for celebrating the Kings’s Coronation with kids. Celebrating doesn’t mean you have to go crazy buying lots of new party supplies. Because I’ll bet good money that you’ve got a union jack flag or two hanging around somewhere from the last jubilee. Although, just like with kids’ party themes, not everything you use has to have the union jack on it. Plain items in red, white, and blue work really well, and you can use any leftovers for your next celebration. But there is one item…

    Party Planning

    What makes a good kid’s party?

    Back when Party Box by Design was just an idea, I was sitting at my nephew’s birthday party next to my Dad chatting. We’d literally just finished putting the decorations up before people started arriving. The weather was horrendous that day. We had to dry everything off that we took into the hall where we were holding the party, so it took much longer than we were expecting to set up. But as we were sitting back looking proudly at our hard work, my Dad said to me, “of course, no one actually cares about any of these decorations!”We then both laughed as he remembered what my business idea was.…
