Debra, a stay-at-home mum of three, loves experiencing and sharing all that Brisbane has to offer; especially southside secrets.

The thing I love most about being a mum, besides my children, is planning their birthday parties. Sometimes I have a theme in mind or sometimes I see something that inspires me. Some of the themes we have had so far include a pyjama party, an arty party, and a ladybug garden party.
The best parties are often the ones put together by you and held at home or in a local park. You do not have to spend a fortune either. You can find party supplies to suit all budgets. If you do have a theme in mind, Party Domain.com.au in Red Hill has 365 themed ideas and 4,000 party items. Lombard The Paper People in Slacks Creek have an extensive selection of tableware, balloons, piņatas and more. Other one stop party shops include BB's Party Supplies (Strathpine), @ That Party Place (Capalaba), and Pepe's Party Paraphernalia (Woolloongabba).
Perhaps you are looking for something a little bit different. The Party Space (Woolloongabba) hires out sumo wrestler suits among other things. Star Jumpin' (on-line) has jumping castles and slushie machines for hire. For something truly original, Busta Piņata (West End) sells piņatas made to order.
