15 Cute Etsy Shops For Kids’ Birthday Party Supplies
When it comes to birthday parties, I am all about the decorations. Food is great, but nothing says “party” more than banners, streamers, confetti, and balloons. And while I’d love to be the mom that sits around for weeks on end, hand-cutting and gluing the best party decor ever, the truth is I just don’t have that kind of time (or patience).
But store-bought party decorations usually fall short of my expectations for over-the-top, beautifully executed kids’ birthday parties. I like our parties to feel special and I want the details to photograph well. This can be achieved at birthday party supply stores, but so much more thought and effort goes into the party decor items you’ll find on Etsy.
Shopping for birthday party decor on Etsy can be a bit overwhelming at first, with so many choices from sellers all around the world. I definitely recommend searching by theme or item type first and building a growing list by hitting the “favorite” option as you poke around. But to help narrow down your search even closer, here’s the best from some of my favorite birthday party decor shops on Etsy:
Spencer's Sugar Shop
Sure, you can order edible glitter to make your own festive confections, but in the interest of time why not order these party-ready lollipops from Spencer's Sugar Shop?
Don't be fooled by the name: this fancy paper goods shop doesn't stop at wedding decor. Your stylish birthday girl (or boy) will appreciate the fab plates (how elegant are these marble ones?) and favor boxes at their next bash.
White Loft growth charts are such a cool piece of party decor because you keep them long after the big day. While these handmade wood or canvas baby heirlooms make an amazing stand-alone birthday gift, you can also use them as big-day decor to see where all the friends measure up. Make sure to take a photo of the birthday child next to his or her growth chart because by next year, you won't even remember how small they were! Photo:Instagram/shopwhiteloft
Forever Oh So Crafty Co
Super cute, and extra affordable, the expressive paper birthday banners from Oh So Crafty Co are a top pick. I'm into the 70's themed groovy one shown here, but they offer over 100 styles.
We've sourced the bulk of our birthday party decor for all our birthday parties from this, well, glam Etsy party shop. They are easy to work with and they help you create a custom decorating plan within your budget and theme. Plus, you can do everything from balloons to cake toppers here, to cut down on shipping costs and stress by ordering from multiple shops.
There's no better way to say 'birthday' than a ton of floating latex and mylar. This one-stop balloon shop has so many unique and special options to cater to your specific party theme. And those metallics? Fit for a princess, for sure.
This paper shop offers so many exclusive designs including fully custom, hand-cut confetti. But I personally can't get over the delightful centerpiece sticks you can prop up in just about anything to add pizzazz to the party tables.
The fun and unique approach to cake toppers by Lilac Grey Studio on Etsy is at once playful and chic, making picks like these gold dinosaurs rocking party hats a natural first choice for your kiddo's next shindig.
Customized birthday invitations set the stage for an unforgettable party. We like buying Etsy printables to streamline the invite process and to introduce a concise theme. This shop has a lot of fun options and they're easy to mix-and-match to fit your aesthetics at a great price.
Sassy straws and a whole suite of paper goods to match? Yes, please! This Etsy shop has a ton of fun themes including glitter galore, but I'm particularly taken with this gorgeous rainbow decor for a unisex birthday party -- or baby shower -- theme.
U.K.-based Etsy party shop Super Sweet Party has tons of punchy offerings for a variety of parties, from balloons and cake toppers to glittery candles and more. But the "party in a box" takes the cake for stress-free planning and fully coordinated decor.
Polaroids make a great favor, but you can also invite guests to just use props and take pictures with their cell phones. And editable photo frames make the photos even more fun. This shop lets you coordinate your invites and the rest of the paper goods to match, and they're all digital files so no wait time or shipping costs.
