We have rounded up 8 top party trends right now, from drip cakes, statement balloons and grazing platters - we show you what's hot right now in the party world. Enjoy!

STATEMENT BALLOONS 

This is a huge trend right now and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Script balloons and spelling out words and phrases looks fabulous. We have seen more and more balloon backdrops, installations and garlands making an appearance.

DRIP CAKES GRAZING

The stunning drip cake is going viral on Instagram and there are endless possibilities when decorating. Topped with flowers, macaroons and a calligraphy cake toppers - they are fabulous!

PLATTERS 

Grazing platters are super impressive and takes the humble cheese platter to the next level. Filled with fresh cured meats, fruits, crackers, cheese, dried fruit, olives, dips and breads, they make for a great and stylish way to cater for your guests.

UNIQUE PARTY THEMES 

Choosing a party theme from your child's interests or from what's trending right now is so popular. Many are moving on from the classic character driven parties and are creating unique themed parties.

LASER CUT CALLIGRAPHY 

Laser cut calligraphy is super hot and I love any excuse to bring out a calligraphy cake topper. We have been seeing large event signs, cake toppers, drink stirrers and place cards. On-trend right now and rightly so.

BOUTIQUE PARTY PRODUCTS AND DECORATIONS 

With the option of choosing beautifully designed party products and decorations, the party paper plate has become a statement on it's own. Boutique party tableware and decorations add a strong element to a party and can set the whole theme.

TECHNOLOGY 

Event hashtags, digital photo booths and live-steaming events are all trending strong. From weddings to kids parties or any other celebration, its all about creating your own hashtag, social sharing and interaction.

FELT LETTER BOARD SIGNS 

These adorable and ever so stylish felt letter board signs can be used as a welcome sign, to share a drink recipe or display a message. You can even use them after your party around the home. Double win!
