My favourite thing about planning a party is picking the theme. Don’t you agree?

I can spend hours pouring over magazines, my Facebook feed and of course drooling over Pinterest inspiration.

Choosing a theme is the first step in planning your celebration. From weddings to milestone birthdays, a theme will set the scene for everything, from food, decorations, guests, attire and location.

Sometimes it can be a challenge to settle on a theme. A great place to start is to look at what is trending.

If you love to follow trends in fashion and beauty, homewares and decorating, then keep a watch out for the party trends that will be making a splash this year.

Here are 5 party trends that will keep your party hot in 2018.

1.Anything with Pantone colour of the year – Purple!
With Pantone releasing its colour of the year as Ultra Violet, this deep purple will be making its way into everything from makeup, fashion, home decor and yes parties and weddings too.

2. Milestone Birthdays
Other then weddings, celebrating milestone birthdays are a call for a big party. From Sweet 16, 18, 21 to Dirty 30 and Fabulous 50, this year its all about you and your big milestone.

Pop into the shop to pick up your cake topper and birthday celebration needs.

3. Hygge inspired celebrations
If you are not into a Pinterest perfect, fully styled and over-the-top celebration, this is the trend for you. Hygge is all about toning it down, going back to simple and laid-back entertaining. Its all about comfort and cozziness.

Kick of your shoes, host a pot luck dinner with your friends and just chill out. Hygge is about pausing, relaxing and enjoying the special moments.

4. Greenery backdrops
Hands up who loves a backdrop – me! This year the backdrop is not going anywhere.

Whether its for your cake table, food and dessert station or a photo booth, greenery is the trend in backdrops for 2018. Use faux flowers and plants to create your backdrop.

5. Savoury comfort food
Last year it was all about the desserts with drip cakes, donut stands, ice-cream parties and monster candy bars. This year its time to switch it to savoury and get inspired to create a comfort food station instead.

Think US inspired comfort with mac’n cheese, fries and burger bars. Pop over to my blog on how to create your own burger bar.
