Melbourne's Ultimate Party Guide: Tips for Throwing an Unforgettable Celebration

If you live in Melbourne, you have a lot to Celebrate throughout the year! You have your own Special Events, like Birthdays, Baptisms, Weddings, and Holidays, but who can forget all of the Amazing Sporting Events that happen in Melbourne?

You’ve come to the right place for all of your Melbourne Party Planning Needs. At Katie J Design & Events, we have everything you need to host an Amazing Celebration.

On our Website, you’ll find over 300 Personalised Themes to choose from for your next big event. Each Theme has the Decorations and Supplies you need to create a Stunning Party Space.

Here is the Ultimate Guide to Throwing an Amazing Party in Melbourne.

Themes for Your Melbourne Party

In Australia, Melbourne is a Centre of Arts, Culture, and Sports. If you want to keep this Rich Heritage alive when you’re throwing a Party, Katie J Design & Events has you covered. With all of the themes we have to choose from, you’ll have dozens of options for your Melbourne Party.

For a Sports Birthday Party, you’ll see options like Bowling, Nerf, Monster Trucks, Cricket, Sailing, Billiards, Motor Biking, Golf, Soccer, and Basketball. You can use these themes for sports-loving Birthday Guys or Gals of All Ages.

As an example, check out our Personalised Billiards 8 Ball Party Decorations featuring a Pool Table, Cue and Colourful Balls. Any Snooker Fan or Player will love these stylish decorations!

One of our Favourite themes in our family is our Personalised Cricket Birthday Party Decorations. The Design features a Cricket Stadium with Bats, Balls, and Wickets in your choice of coloured font. We used this Theme for our son Donte’s 10th Birthday! If you’re interested in throwing your own Cricket Party, check out our Fun and Creative ideas for hosting a Cricket Birthday.

If you’re looking for a Theme that’s more Artistic, you’ll appreciate that many of our Designs Feature work by Artists. For example, our Personalised African Animals Baby Shower Decorations include Handpainted Watercolour Clipart by OctopusArtis and a Beautiful Tropiclal Background by mademoisellemoonstar.

Decorating Your Melbourne Party Space

My Favourite way to Prepare a Party Space is by using Theme Colours, and you can use the same technique for your Melbourne Party!

When you order Decorations from Katie J Design & Events, you’ll notice that the Supplies all have a Similar Design and Colours. Choose One Main Colour (a few accent Colours will look good, too!) and use this to tie the rest of your Party Space Together.

For Example, use Tablecloths or Linens, Balloons, and Plates, Cups, and Utensils that match the Theme Colour you Chose. These items are usually inexpensive but Easy to See, so they make a big impact on your party space.

Here are a few other Decorations you can try:

Party Banners

Our Party Packs come with Personalised Party Banners you can hang to Create the Perfect Centrepieces. All of our Banners are printed on Waterproof Canvas and have Eyelets for Easy Hanging. Plus, they are Customisable with the Name of the Celebrant and the Occasion!

You can hang the Party Banners on their own or Create a Party Banner and Balloon Stand for Maximum Impact. Here’s our Guide to Decorating and Hanging Party Banners with Everything you Need to know!

Here is a Beautiful and Stylish Centrepiece Display from my Daughter Paige's Fairy themed 5th Birthday Party.

Flag Bunting

Our Flag Bunting is Flexible for your Party Space. Each Flag comes with two holes and there is Satin Ribbon included. You can simply thread the ribbon through each flag in order, leaving the perfect amount of space for your Decorating needs.

You can use Clear Tape, Double Sided Tape, Pushpins, Clothespins, or even Small Nails to hang bunting on the front of Tables, on Walls, or on Outdoor Surfaces of your choice.

In addition to Creating a Fantastic Party Space, Flag Bunting can be used for Photo Areas. We love this Motocross themed party and Creative photo set up!
