What decorations do you need for a party?

Organising a big birthday bash for someone special? Or maybe you want to mark your upcoming nuptials with an elegant engagement party? Decorations will likely be high on your priority list to buy for the big day.

From colourful candles perfect for placing on top of kids’ birthday cakes to strings of pretty solar-powered fairy lights, there are so many ways to take your party from zero to hero… Keep it simple with muted colours and chic metallics or go all-out with our range of rainbow-themed party decorations and accessories.

Picnic baskets at the ready

Warmer weather means it’s time for more alfresco dining. Whether it’s a BBQ or a picnic you’ve got on the horizon, make it that little bit more practical with our handy partyware.

Enjoy the ease of disposable tableware that can be whipped out at a picnic and then easily recycled later on. Think paper napkins perfect for mopping up spills, plus paper coasters that’ll prevent pesky drinks stains on your outdoor furniture and limit how much wiping you’ll need to do once the last guest has gone.

Light it up with tealights and candles

Everybody loves candles, right? They’ve long been used as a decoration at parties - even Henry VIII had a few dotted around his banqueting halls! Not just pretty to look at, candles and tea light holders can also provide some much-need ambience.

Here at Lakeland, we’ve also put your comfort on the radar with our citronella candles that are great at keeping the bugs away on long summer evenings. And then there’s those novelty candles – think wacky-shaped birthday candles and glittering sparklers.

Birthday must-haves

One of the most common reasons to plan a party is for a birthday. Whether you’re celebrating someone’s fifth or fiftieth turn around the sun, make sure it’s one to remember with some bright banners, fun cake toppers, colourful candles and innovative gift-wrapping accessories.
