In 2013, we saw the DIY trend in kiddie parties, as mommies brought out their scissors and started crafting and detailing items for their precious ones’ milestones.
This 2014, the keyword for parties seems to be uniqueness. Each parent is customizing their party to their specific requirements. Parents are now seeking original ideas and concepts that reflect the celebrant’s personality and interests.
Want your party to stand out, or to be completely personalized? Here are the hottest trends for 2014!
1.Handcrafted Characters for Giveaways or Centerpieces
Nothing says more than uniqueness than hand-made items made with love. Thanks to Instagram, we are now witness to the gorgeous pieces of hand-stitched art, which you can include in your parties! Customized to your preferred sizes or needs, you can ask for quotes on different hand dolls, or doll buffets (that the guests can dress up). One thing’s for sure – your guests won’t be able to find the exact same items anywhere else, and the dolls or toys provide a memory that is unique to your party.
Made in Candy has been around for the last few years, but did you know that you can customize the candies to your design, and put personalized stickers on them? In case you didn’t, allow your guests to be awed by the customized design (with the celebrant’s name, of course!) hand-prepared on the candies themselves. They’re absolutely yummy, too!
Who doesn’t love stamps? Every child and adult can sure use a stamp or 2 for fun. How great would it be if the stamp had your guest’s name (and a character, too!) Party Stamps is the newest trend taking over the party industry, as stamps are personalized for each guest.
We’ve had personalized stickers, personalized pens, and personalized keychains. So what’s new now? Onsite personalized Flipflops. Perfect for those luau or safari themed parties, these Flipflops will knock your guests’ socks off (pun intended!)
Every year, parents always ask, what’s the newest trend for the main show? Worry no further, mommies – Tectonix is here to the rescue. Composed of 3 wonderful balloonists, Tectonix is a balloon show that creates wonderful and exciting balloon arrangements – while dancing to songs that are related to the balloons. Warning, this show is such a hit, it will have both kids and parents shouting excitedly by the stage, hoping for one of the gorgeous character balloons.
