7 ESSENTIAL PARTY PLANNING WEBSITES

As I may have mentioned in previous posts I’m never happier than when I have an event or party to plan. Whether it’s Christmas, birthday parties, hen do’s or baby showers these are my tops websites that I turn to time and time again to ensure the event is truly one to remember.

Pinterest

pinterestThis is where I start with all my party planning, looking for inspiration and deciding on décor ideas / themes. I also find it a really useful tool to save gift ideas as the pictures always link straight to the website so perfect for Christmas planning – just make sure you keep those boards secret!

Partypacks

Party packs is always my first stop for any fancy dress or themed parties – they stock everything from 70’s wigs to disco balls and tableware in every colour and theme you can imagine!

Wedding in a Teacup

Wedding in a Teacup1A great site not just for wedding décor but for all parties in general – the hen do survival bags were a big hit at my sisters recent hen do! They also have lots of rubber stamps which are a great and stylish way to label gifts, party bags, wrapping paper, cards – the list is endless!

Hobbycraft

I always stock up on craft supplies at Hobbycraft, if I have something to make, bake or create! Last year I decided on a toddler friendly “pom pom” Christmas tree and managed to get everything I needed very cheaply in Hobbycraft which saved me a tonne of time and money.

Papermash

Papermash is a fantastic online store for beautiful wrapping, unusual tags, stamps, tablewear and not forgetting stripy straws – they have everything you’d need to decorate a super stylish bash.

Not on the Highstreet

Not on the highstreet is a favourite of mine for personalised items, invites and special little touches, its also great for personalised gifts.

As creative director of Sweetpea PR I spend my days securing press coverage for some of the UK's leading luxury bridal brands, being obsessed with all things wedding related and pretty, setting up Sweetpea with my twin sister was a dream come true! In my spare time I have another great love in my life, my little boy Albie. His arrival a year ago spurred on a whole new interest and my daily Instagram and Pinterest feed is now more likely to be filled with baby style inspiration and nursery decor! I am never happier than when scouring the internet for cute clothing finds and gaining inspiration for the next event I am planning!
