Parties for our little loved ones are a highlight for us at LENZO! We love the feeling of being able to feature unique and exciting birthdays for children and seeing the huge smile it brings to their faces. However, LENZO knows more than anyone that with all the planning and prepping, it can get a bit overwhelming and we need a hand or two to help ...
So look no further than Mini Party People, a trader that we absolutely #LOVE! They not only rent awesome children’s chairs and tables, they are a one stop shop, sourcing products that coordinate together and can be delivered to you at the same time, making your life that little bit easier.
Mini Party People is the brainchild of Stacey Moran, a busy Mum of two, who has a background in working for one of Melbourne’s leading and largest homeware retailers. With 20 years experience in the industry, Stacey knows amazing products when she sees them. Back in 2012 Stacey spotted a gap in the market for all things ‘mini’ in the party hire and planning business, and so Mini Party People was born.
They not only help find the right products, but also provide additional inspiration for party planning. Just check out the website www.minipartypeople.com.au for some of their popular party theme packs. Whether it’s a Frozen tea party for the girls, or a farm party with animals for the boys, Mini Party People have definitely got you covered!
We are especially #OBSESSING over their amazing range of products for hire – think Baby Bentwood chairs, Ghost chairs, vintage lolly carts, cake stands, ceramic animals. And let’s not forget you can also buy party essentials from their online party shop!
The success of this business is definitely down to Stacey’s passion for all things party and design! She says it best here:
"I’ve always loved parties but I think planning your children’s party is a really special thing. No matter what you are doing it’s about creating a special memory. In the end it’s about the ‘candle’ moment."
We at LENZO like to think we are ahead of the game when it comes to trend forecasting (hello #unicorns), so we also had to ask Stacey what we can expect on the party front over the next few months.
"For the older kids, minecraft and discos are becoming increasingly popular. There has also been a growth in mermaid, ice cream, and farm parties"
Now being an expert in the field, we had to ask Stacey what her top 5 essentials for a perfect kids party are…
- Timing – kids need to be kept busy or else chaos occurs. Work out a schedule so they are kept entertained and busy.
- Theming – I love attention to detail, so I will try to get as much as I can working within my theme, from chairs, table cloths, lunch boxes etc.
- Cake – it’s all about the cake and blowing out those candles. That’s the camera moment, the song ‘happy birthday’ makes your child feel as special as they know they are’.
- Entertainer or jumping castle – keeps the kids busy and an event to remember.
- Food – make sure the food is fun.
As Stacey says "in the end it's about creating a memory and putting a smile on their faces."
