Have a look at our reusable party decorations. We also hire out beautiful Pom Poms to replace latex balloons. Contrary to popular belief and large amounts of greenwashing, latex balloons are not biodegradable. If you are looking for a Number balloon to make a statement, check out our balloon library on Facebook. We lend out foil balloons free of charge! Search for ‘Sutherland Shire Balloon Library’ under groups.
Our party table backdrop and giant Bluey and Bingo cut-outs are also fun additions to your low waste party decorations. With all your tableware and party decorations covered you will have plenty of time to think about the party food and birthday cake.
Have you seen the episode where Bandit patiently makes Bingo a duck cake for her birthday? If you are feeling brave, why not give it a go? – https://www.bluey.tv/make/bluey-duck-cake/
Or Steven Crater-Bailey has offered his expertise for a four-layered Heeler cake. Now, I must be honest if I was going to attempt this cake, I would be using the mud cake hack and would probably stop with two layers, or one. How many children do they think I am inviting to this party? We will be left with Bluey birthday cake in the freezer for a year.
If you prefer a simple cake, dress it up with a beautiful cake topper or some mini figurines if you have some in the toy box.

Now if you have read any of my previous blog posts or follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you will know that I believe in keeping the party food super simple and budget-friendly. Let’s be honest, the kids are too busy playing and enjoying themselves to be paying any attention to the layout and design of party food you have provided. When they are feeling hungry, they will move towards the sweet stuff and ignore those beautiful food labels you printed, cut and folded late the night before.
Chips, chopped up fruit, fairy bread and some lollies are perfect for a morning or afternoon party. Along with the cake, no guest will go home starving. If you have planned your party over lunchtime, this is a simple reminder not to do that again and maybe serve some hotdogs.
If you did want to add something special to the party food table then give these Yes/No biscuits a try – https://www.bluey.tv/make/bluey-yes-no-button-biscuit-recipe/
There are lots of fun to be had without having to pay a fortune for entertainment.
Dress up the traditional game of bean bag toss with a Bluey target for a fun, easy and DIY party game. If you don’t have bean bags, don’t go out and buy. You can hire a set from us.

How cute are these Bluey Party Bags? The instructions are available from the Bluey TV website and they are just made from paper so can go straight in the compost bin when the kids are finished playing with them. I decided to leave off the handles so it was easier to compost later. No one has time to remove handles and honestly I don’t have time to add them in the first place. So two problems solved 🙂
But if you don’t have time for that, don’t worry. Why not consider some Bluey colouring-in pages and a set of crayons? A bluey fortune teller or some finger puppets for a sustainable party favour.
