Welcome to our Blog - Parties by Katie J!

Hello and Welcome to our Blog, Parties by Katie J!

I am Katie J. Along with my small family business, Katie J Design and Events, I love to write blog posts about the Amazing Parties hosted by me or our customers. We will be sharing Easy and Delicious Party Recipes along with some great DIY tips and Photos of Creative Party Spaces.

Our Blog: Parties by Katie J

Parties by Katie J is where you can find Everything You Need to throw your own Party that Everyone will Love. This is our Little Space to Share the Fun Stuff that we do!

Party Themes

Throughout the years, I’ve written blog posts about some of the Party Themes we’ve incorporated into our many Family Celebrations, and I’ve collected customer ideas and photographs that also serve as wonderful inspiration for planning Fun and Creative Parties.

Some of our most Popular Parties are our Nerf Gun Party for my Son Donte’s 11th Birthday, our Magical Unicorn Party for my daughter Paige’s 4th Birthday, and our Teddy Bears Picnic for Paige’s 3rd Birthday.

Our Party Theme blogs are full of ideas for incorporating Colours and Props, decorating Party Tables, planning themed Games, and making Delicious Treats and Favours, all complementing your Kiddo’s Favourite Characters or Hobbies.

We’ve also written Party Theme blogs for other Celebrations and Holidays, like Halloween, Aussie Day, and our Birds & Owl Themed Baby Shower.

Most of these themes complement our lines of Personalised Party Decorations.

Cake Hacks

As you read our party blogs, you’ll learn that while I’m Creative and Love Parties, I am definitely not a World-Class Baker! That doesn’t mean my Kids haven’t had Fun and Delicious Themed Birthday Cakes.

On the blog, you’ll find a collection of Cake Hacks we’ve used over the years. These are proof that you don’t need a complicated recipe and endless time and money to make a Fantastic Cake for a Special Occasion.

Most of the Cake Hacks we share are No Bake, so just need a pre-made Cake, Yummy Frosting and Decorations, and a little Creativity. I love our Easy No Bake Number Birthday Cake Hack with Lollies and Delicious Mud Cake Hack with Nutella Drip Icing!

I promise you’ll Love learning how to make such Amazing Cakes, and it’s always a wonderful opportunity for Family Time.

Party Food

Most of our party theme blogs include some ideas and tips for food and treats, but I also have blogs dedicated just to Fun and Delicious Ideas for Easy Party Foods.

These party blogs explain everything you need to Create Foods your Guests will Love, and with a little Creativity you can reuse these ideas again and again for any Party Theme or Occasion.

Some of our most popular Party Foods include Delicious & Easy Chocolate Spoons and Fun & Easy Rainbow Jelly for Kids Parties. They have Simple Ingredients and Look Amazing when they’re on display!

Party Games

At our parties, the guests always Enjoy a few games, even if they’re silly. They keep the Kids occupied, and if they’re competitive, we sometimes have Little Prizes for the Winners.

It’s not difficult to Create your Own Games that are theme related, so for our party blogs we have collected quite a few with Ideas for DIY Party Games.

Easy Cardboard Cutout

Some of our favourites include Giant Cardboard Cutouts for Photographs and an Easy to Make Party Pinata. For anyone with some extra time or who feels ready for more Intense DIY, that blog about Pinatas also includes an Advanced Option!
