Finding the right supplies can make or break your party. I have a number of go-to stores that between them usually carries everything I need for my events. Many of our retailers stock basic supplies for the more generic party themes but if you are looking for speciality items, take a look at my list below.
The store is situated in Pinelands and has become a firm favourite for party planners and mom’s hunting down party supplies. The store is open Monday to Saturday, has an awesome little coffee shop and also sells their merchandise online. I love it for their wide range of catering supplies and party boxes. They also have a wide range of balloons. Set aside a few hours for your visit, trust me you do not want to rush and try and avoid Saturday mornings as it gets quite busy.

They stock everything from fairy lights to glassware, they usually have the little elements that I can’t find anywhere else. Perhaps more geared to the crafting community, they are still worth the trip to Paarden Island. They have a great loyalty program for event planners. Don’t forget to visit the floral section before you head to the till.

This is by far my favourite party supply store! They sell everything from toys to Halloween costumes. They have incredibly friendly staff and the owner is a gem. They’ve recently opened another store – Katty House around the corner from their flagship store in Montague Gardens, that specialises in themed party supplies.

Between these three suppliers, I usually find everything I need to make any party great. For those items you cant find give Party Lady a try- they deliver across the country or visit Target – who now also deliver party supplies to South Africa. Happy Shopping!
