Can’t think of a theme? Bedazzled keeps a close eye on the the latest ideas. Founder Juliet Oldfield shares three of the hottest trends in children’s parties right now…

1 Star Wars
Star Wars was a firm favourite last year with the release of the new film, so we had to constantly brainstorm to reinvent this classic theme so each party had its personal touches. While we designed this show stopper event we had the Star Wars theme tune on repeat for inspiration, reminding us of how grand and exciting this party needed to be.

Children's party themes: Star Wars is big again following the release of Rogue One

We created a dramatic entrance for our Jedis to battle through by lining the room with Storm Troopers. Once in the main party room we set up dynamic freestanding outer space backdrops framed by stunning balloon arches and sculptures, including a balloon sculpture of Darth Vader himself!

The children led into the world of Star Wars by our Jedi entertainers who challenged the children to activities, crafts and themed games in order to become mini Jedis themselves. Then they were served sandwiches in the shape of the Millennium Falcon, sipped on Jedi juice and enjoyed a slice of Yoda cake. At the end of the party each child was knighted a Jedi, receiving their very own cloak, lightsaber and certificate.

2 Candy Land  
We had the pleasure of transforming a client’s garden into a Candy Land extravaganza, which was beautifully bright and busy. The weather worked in our favour and we were able to spill out the decorations from the summer home and across the garden.

Children's party themes: Candy Land is colourful and funWe used a rainbow of colours for the design, which was a lovely alternative to the popular pastels we use for many of our events. We created a main stage area in the summer house for the entertainment to take place with freestanding ribbon backdrops, flooring and cutouts.

We then decorated the garden with giant colourful fans hanging in the trees, bunting lining the fences, glittery 3D sweets in pretty pots, giant candy cane-shaped balloon sculptures and big gob-stopper balloons.

The children were entertained with themed games, dancing, bubbles, face painting and pony rides. The gorgeous ponies were even dressed to impress with rainbow ribbons plaited into their mane. We really do like to ensure that everything matches and that detail is key.

3 Under the Sea
We recently designed a magical Under The Sea adventure, immersing out client’s home under water. Our brief was to ensure it was factually correct and to use chosen favourite sea creatures within the design.

We started by designing a scuba diver cartoon of the birthday boy, which featured on the invitations, party bags and backdrops. To create the impression of being under water we completely filled the ceiling with air bubble balloons getting bigger as they went up. The rest of the room was decked out with sea creature cutouts, floaty ribbon backdrops and balloon sculptures in the shape of seaweed.

We created the sweetie table of dreams with stingray cupcakes, oyster-peal macarons and scuba-diver cake pops. The entertainment was led by our scuba diver entertainers taking the children on a dynamic magical watery adventure. Fun underwater facts were shared and explored, crafts were completed and the party was finished with a seabed disco that all the adults got involved with.
