A Minions Birthday Party by Party Bags and Supplies

Minions! They seem to be everywhere at the moment. It is almost as if the whole world has been taken over by these cute little dungaree-clad yellow characters.

Our J has been caught up in the Minion frenzy, as am I. It is hard not to like anything that goes, "Ba-boy!" Little wonder then, that when it came to choosing a theme for J's fourth birthday party, my son piped up with, "Minions!"

So J got his Minion themed birthday party with a little help from Party Bags and Supplies. They kindly offered to provide us with a set of the Minion party pack containing pre-filled party bags and tableware for eight. We however, were catering for a larger number of four and five year olds. So we opted to do a pick-and-mix with the party supplies.

We went for a Minion happy birthday banner and a helium foil balloon as the centrepieces. Then there was a pack of four Minion candles to go on the birthday cake. Perfect for a fourth birthday!

I decided to do my own party bags and got a bunch of favours like punch balloons, maze puzzles, magnetic hairy harrys and colourful flute whistles. These went in, you guessed it, Minion loot bags. Even the thank you cards were covered in yellow polka dots!

When the order arrived, everything was in order except for one glitch. The Minion party loot bags. When I placed the order, each pack was said to contain 8 loot bags. Now as I was catering for a party of 16 children, I did my maths and ordered two packs. When the parcel turned up, each pack contained only 6 Minion party loot bags, leaving me 3 short. So I had to scour the internet to try and source the missing loot bags. Thank goodness I found a pack of 4 to make up the numbers.

Other than that, I am pretty pleased with the whole process of ordering from Party Bags and Supplies. My order came well in time for our party. They offer a huge range of products and the pricing structure is competitive. There are lots of different themes to choose from. And it is not just about birthdays. They offer a supply of tableware, decorations, favours and accessories for weddings, summer parties, christmas and a whole lot of other occasions.

So Minions or no Minions, if you are planning a party, chances are Party Bags and Supplies will have something to help make it special.

  1. That's a shame they got the numbers wrong. Were you able to go back to them to raise it. We liked our party bags, it look a lot of fuss out of the party for us

    1. I didn't bother, tbh. I found 4 for a couple of quid, so just went on and got them. The website since says 6 bags per pack.

  2. We're loving Minions too. It's great to use a firm like this for co-ordinated themed party bits, otherwise you can spend hours online tracking things down.

  12. Arrgh, that is so annoying about the party bags! But, it sounds like a great place to buy party bag stuff... sort of thing I could have done with being around 10 years ago when I filled lots of bags for my son's birthday parties!! x
