How to create your very own professional looking party decorations at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional to do it for you. At One Stop Kids Party Shop we are all about quality and fair pricing. We don’t want to sell our customers rubbish balloons so we only use the best brands such as Qualatex and Sempertex the world leaders in balloons and we only have a small mark up on them as we count on the support from our loyal customers that we know will always come back to us after their first order as they will be so in love with their products.
At www.onestopkidspartyshop.com.au we have evolved with the times and we have embraced the new direction that parties and events are heading in. Gone are the days of cheap looking licensed party ware and non matching balloons and plastic take home loot bags. Birthday Parties, Baby Shower Parties, 1st Birthday parties, newborn photo shoots, engagement parties, weddings have now all dramatically changed! I think a lot of these changes have come from talented people sharing their ideas on Instagram, You Tube, Facebook and the likes and it has made us all re think and re look at the way we decorate for the special occasions in our lives. It’s funny as 6 years ago Disney Princess and Pirates for example were the go to for kids parties and at the time I thought they looked amazing, now with the emergence of metallic rose gold balloons and metallic rose gold confetti balloons, and gold banners, peach and pinks suddenly those old licensed party themes look terribly tacky and cheap, yet surprisingly they were and still are really expensive.
Slowly but surely as time permits between running this website, a huge Ebay store and looking after two children and a working dog, I am starting to bring the website and the business into the new era of party styling. I’m always open to request for custom orders so please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any enquiries.
You are viewing our listing for a sheet of 100 Balloon Dots, (DOES NOT INCLUDE BALLOONS) These Balloon dots are double sided which means you can use them to stick one side to the ceiling or to the wall. They are great for creating a balloon ceiling because you don’t require helium, you can choose to add a balloon string to each balloon so it gives the appearance of loose hanging helium balloons or you can choose to just have the balloons themselves without string stuck to the ceiling. You might wish to bunch them close to together so the entire ceiling becomes like a balloon cloud or you might separate them. Here at One Stop Kids Party Shop we have a massive selection of premium quality balloons at extremely competitive prices.
If you are using the balloon dots to help you with creating a balloon garland they can really improve the final look of your garland as you can stick one side to one balloon then stick another balloon to it so you do not end up with gaps between your balloons. Or you might choose to use say a 28cm balloon and attach a 25cm or 12cm to it to help create the garland. At One Stop Kids Party Shop we have several DIY Balloon Garland Kits available for sale, you may wish to add your balloon dots to your order of the Balloon garland Kit, in order to give your Balloon garland that really tidy professional finished look!!
Please note the listing is for 100 balloon dots only and does not include the balloons or any other item shown in the photographs, they are there to provide my customers with ideas and inspiration on how they can create a professional look themselves without the added cost of having to hire a balloon specialist.

If you’re searching around for a suitable baby shower theme that isn’t diaper pins and teddy bears, let me just say that a solid rainbow party is always a crowd-pleasing favourite. The rainbow colours mean that it does not matter if the baby shower party is for a little boy to be or a little girl to be and rainbow makes everyone feel happy, is there not a better way to welcome a new baby and new life into this world? At One Stop Kids Party Shop we have all your Rainbow Baby Shower Party Supplies covered.
How to start organising your Rainbow Baby Shower Party?? Sometimes the hardest thing about organising a baby shower party is where to start? Well don’t overwhelm yourself with everything you have to do just do one thing at a time and please don’t feel like you have to do everything yourself when throwing a baby shower party for a friend or family member. It is a huge job putting on a baby shower party and it can get very costly so don’t take feel like you have to do everything. Just remember everyone gets so excited about the impending arrival of new life and I’m sure your friends or family members will be only to happy to take on some of the responsibility of the party. So get your notepad out and write up a list of things that need to be done and consider who would be the best person for each of the responsibilities. I advise writing down the following tasks. Invitations & R.S.V.P & Thank you letters for after the event, Baby Shower Games, Baby Shower decorations, Baby Shower tableware such as plates, cups, tablecovers, Baby Shower game Prizes, Take home favours for the guests, Party Food, and cake. As the overall co ordinator of the event you will be responsible for where the party takes place and how to bring everything together on the day. Consider budget, be realistic about how much things costs and research the costs before committing to anything to grandiose!! Ask your friends and family would they each feel comfortable taking on part of the costs involved etc.
Ok so once you have established the budget and responsibilities of each of the parties involved in putting the shower together you can perhaps advise the parties that need extra help on where to source some of the awesome supplies for the baby shower party. And that is where the team at One Stop Kids Party Shop comes in very handy as we have the biggest online selection of rainbow party supplies and baby shower party supplies so you should be able to source just about everything from us.

Make sure to get a handful of small prizes/Gifts for baby shower party game winners. If your not sure what to get or where to get it let One Stop Kids Party Shop send you a list of products we can order in for you to give out as small prizes that are specific for Baby Shower Parties.
If you are organising the baby shower party for yourself or even a close friend or family don’t be shy to delegate most people are very excited about the upcoming party and are more than happy to help out which will make the financial stress of hosting a baby shower party a thing of the past. Have one or two friends send out the invites, another 2 people to organise the venue/time, another two or three friends organise the tableware, and another couple of friends organise the games and prizes. Then have a few friends put together the take home baby shower favours/goody bags. As you can see when you break down all the things involved in organising a baby shower party it is too much for one person to be expected to do.
Get each guest to bring along a plate of food to take the pressure of the host both financially and time wise, maybe make things fun by suggesting a theme for the food, you can make this request as a part of the invitations. Or if you want to keep things more traditional just include a note in each of the invitations maybe asking some guest’s to bring a salad, another couple of guest’s to bring sandwiches, another few to bring chips, cheese, dip, fruit platter and another few guests to brings a dessert.
Make sure your Mum to Be has a comfortable chair/lounge that is specifically designed for her. By the time most Mum’s to be have reached their baby shower they are very heavily pregnant and you want to make sure that your mummy is not only comfortable but made to feel like a princess at her shower. Design/Decorate a very comfortable chair or small lounge for your mummy to be and make it very obvious this is her seat and her seat only. This way she will feel confident knowing she does not have to stand on her feet the whole time etc.
Have a baby shower registry for the baby shower gifts. You do not want the mum to be ending up with 25 newborn onesies, or 30 pacifiers!! It is better to sit down as part of the baby shower party preparation with the expecting mum and dad to be and have a discussion as to what they really need. Then perhaps put together a baby shower registry. Email the registry out to the guest’s and do a first in first serve system. So each guest nominates from the list of gift idea’s what they would like to get the new mum to be and you. There is always going to be guest that do not like the idea of been told what they can or can not get the new mum to be and that’s fine just be gracious as after all the baby shower party is about the celebration of the new baby not about the gifts and it is not worth offending family or close friends at this time as it is a happy time. There may be generational differences or cultural differences that will cause there is to be some guest’s on edge with a baby shower registry so just check with the mum and dad to be as they know their family the best.
Another idea with the baby shower gift might be that everyone donates what they can towards a large present that the new mummy and daddy need such as a cot and bedside drawers, pram, car seat and so on. You can make it a confidential donation so if anyone is experiencing financial hardship they are not left feeling embarrassed.
At the end of the day a baby shower party can be a fantastic fun event that a mum to be will remember for a life time, so it is important to put some planning and thought into the shower after all there is nothing better in the world than celebrating the arrival of a new baby.
