Confetti Fair started out as the answer to every parent planning their child’s party and has swiftly grown into a nationwide fair across Australia. In a nutshell, Confetti Fair aims to link together home and online-based business to party hosts. Touted as “Australia and New Zealand’s only boutique party fair”, it doesn’t disappoint. Its exhibitors have on display the best in party ideas - from décor to desserts to everything in between. Launched in 2012, Confetti Fair returns to Sydney this Sunday the 3rd of May with its ‘Confetti Fair Junior’ series at Fairyground Follies in St Peters. LENZO had the chance to chat with the mastermind behind the event, Claire Cassey.
What can event-goers expect on the day?
One of a kind boutique products, incredible baking talent and plenty of event inspiration for parents as well as free demonstrations for the grown-ups. This year also has exhibitions from:
- Fairy Fantasy Parties
- Born to Party
- The Party Parlour
- Free Range Living
- Cuisine with a Theme
- Honey Lane
- Love the Occasion
- Simply Peachy
- Elegant Tea Time
What’s in-store for the young ones at this year’s fair?
Kids have an action packed day in-store for them – face painting, macaron decorating and a petting zoo filled with cuddly and loveable animals. Confetti Fair Junior hasn’t forgotten the superheroes! There is Iron Man and Optimus Prime in the morning, and Elsa and Anna in the afternoon.
What are some of the upcoming party trends that may well be showcased at Confetti Fair this year?
Boho is definitely making its comeback; dreamcatchers, teepees and feathers are all equally popular amongst the girls and boys.
If you could plan your ultimate celebration as a ‘Junior’ what would feature at your party?
Either a Willy Wonka party or a Mad Hatter Tea Party with everyone in costume. Think oversized lollies as decorations, a ‘Katherine Sabbath’ masterpiece as the cake and a bright colour palette of mint green, yellow, fuchsia pink, orange and gold. Games would be more along the traditional lines with egg and spoon, pass the parcel and pin the tail on the donkey. And the ultimate gift? A Barbie doll.
For Claire, the highlight of every fair is "seeing the parents delight in planning their kid’s party and being able to find everything under one roof – this is what Confetti Fair is all about".
If you are after party inspiration, access to some of country’s best talent and a fun-filled day, then definitely head along to this unique boutique party fair.
