Autumn Party Themes

Autumn really is here to stay and the change of season welcomes so much goodness. That crisp evening air has Pretty Little Things dreaming of hot chocolates (with marshmallows of course!), falling leaves and new season apples. Perfect weather for a woodsy themed party, don’t you think? We’re feeling inspired by event planning company fire and creme’s whimsical little fairies in the woods. Just imagine a bunch of busy fairies making jeweled necklaces and headpieces in an enchanted backyard!

But best of all, autumn also means… Easter! We stumbled across a super easy recipe that combines this woodland theme with our undying love for chocolate. Meet Bakerella’s Chocolate Bunny Barka quick and easy party treat that can be made in advance.

 What we love most about Bakerella’s kid-friendly recipe is that it lets you and little helpers customise your bunny bark - candy can easily be substituted for dried fruit, nuts or whatever yummy sprinkly bits you prefer. So click on the links and hop to it!

Themed Party Ideas & Dress Up's

Memories of being a little girl are of the brilliant weekend birthday parties.

It was a magical time where being a fairy didn’t just mean donning pantyhose covered wire hanger wings. No no! Each child at the party would spend hours on glitter placement, covering their gumboots in blue faux fur (to make cat feet, of course) and amazing goggly eyed headband creations that could only mean one thing: today, you possessed the powers of an outer space alien!

Kids haven’t changed a bit. Yes, of course, the costume on the internet looks more lifelike and, yes, perhaps homemade costumes take more time, creativity and patience. However the pride taken in a costume you’ve made yourself beats looking like everyone else, hands down, every time.


Imagining, making and creating are some of childhood’s great luxuries. A Pretty Little Things Pearl Party is another way of adding to the perfect themed dress-up party.

A Prince or Princess may arrive with a crown, but how fitting would it be for them to leave with their very own royal-worthy jewels?
