It is appropriate that us Melburnian's are in party mode and season right now. Spring has definitely sprung, although with some of the cold weather we have been experiencing of late; that you would be forgiven for thinking that we are still in winter. Yet with the Spring Racing Carnival happening right now, in tandem with Melbourne Cup tomorrow, and yes Halloween today. Melbourne is fortunate to enjoy a great range of party stores to buy those much needed costumes, streamers and party equipment in the one stop locale.
A great city based party store that makes Melbourne want to party some more would have to be Party and You at Queen Street in the City, right near Bourke Street. Love the halloween costumes, as well as being able to buy the simple things such as party hats and streamers; because sometimes (out of habit) you might forget to buy these items from the supermarket. And nearby Melbourne Party Emporium isn't too bad either.
Melbourne also enjoys some other great and inviting party stores. Other great party stores include The Party Shack in Seddon, or you can order online. Great items including those iconic Melbourne Cup sweep books for $25 a pop. And those popular helium balloons are also available. And Partycyles in East Bentleigh is also just as terrific; mainly for quality balloons, and it is convenient to also order these online.
