Make The Most Of The Weather!

hawaiian costumesEveryone loves a good BBQ and with this amazing weather we have been having why not make the most of it with a fancy dress themed BBQ or party. You don’t always have to have a birthday or other occasion to have a party, why not just celebrate the fact that the sun is shining?!

hawaiianOne of the best party themes for this time of year is Hawaiian. With a huge range of flower leis, flower and shell bras and Hawaiian shirts and costumes to choose from you are guaranteed to find something. The hawaiian manfab thing about this theme is you don’t have to wear a full costume and end up too hot from the layers you have on. By wearing your own vest or t-shirt and shorts you can easily still pull off this look with a few of the accessories and stay cool at the same time.

As well as the fancy dress side why not pick up some party accessories too like our brilliant Hawaiian themed inflatables! Or why not buy one of our palm tree water coolers, it will fit in great with the theme and is amazingly handy to keep your drinks palm treecool instead of having to keep them all in the fridge. That way you never have to leave the glorious sunshine.

Hawaiian fancy dress is the perfect option for all people, men and women, old and young and not matter your shape or size you will definitely find the right items for you so everyone can join in the fun! coconut cup

To really add the finishing touches to your party why not pick up some of our coconut cups and Hawaiian straws? The choices are endless to bring even more fun to your Hawaiian themed party or BBQ.

They all have a good time and nothing toohen and stag nights horrific is inflicted on the hen. We have a huge range of different items suitable for a hen weekend and night. Sashes, inflatables, shot glasses, badges, games and many more items all available on our website and we also keep a large range in our branch too.

Donate For Race For Life

At Party world UK we are always bringing attention to some worthwhile fundraising events. Well now we are very pleased and proud to bring attention to one of our very own and encourage people to donate for race for life.

One of our colleagues took part in race for life for the first time last year and she managed to raise over £100 all on her own! That was a great achievement so this year we want to help and raise even more awareness to help her smash her target from last year.

Race for life helps so many people and families that are affected by the horrible disease cancer. This is a fantastic and worthwhile cause to help in the fight against this horrible illness and help in the treatment and development of treatments so that more and more people each year can say they have beaten it.

Last year Karen completed the Race for life 5K  in Cardiff and completed it in 42 minutes which is amazing. This year she is hoping to run the whole course and beat last years time, if she manages this then she has the 10K in her sights for 2015.

After completing this race once she was adamant that she would compete every year there after. It is a charity that is close to her heart and she wants to help in any way she can. We would also like to encourage others to take part also. Race for life takes place in many different areas all over Britain so you are sure to find a race to compete in near you. If you are unable to compete then please donate to someone, even if it is just £1 as those £1’s make all the difference.

We have included the Just giving page details for Karen’s charity page so that you know it is all secure and we will post a copy of the confirmation letter once all the donations have been paid in full. Please help this fantastic cause. Many thanks.

The Fancy Dress Triathlon is being held in Port Eynon, Gower on 27th September 2014.

The triathlon consists of a 400m swim a 16km bike ride and a 5 km run. The run is open to both men and women of all fitness levels who feel they are capable of competing.

The fancy dress element is nice and easy as there is no set theme so you can wear whatever you would like. Our best recommendation is to wear something that is going to be nice and cool  as you will no doubt get very warm competing in the event.

We have hundreds of different fancy dress options available which will be comfortable and reasonably priced so that it does not cost you the earth.

Welcome to PartyWorld UK!

helloWe would like to say a big welcome to Partyworld UK our new website. We have been doing some maintenance to the website over the past few weeks and we thank you for your patience. The work is still going on but are hoping to be finished within the next few weeks. Rather than leave the site completely unusable we have opened it up so that you are able to still view the costumes and accessories available and we will be adding sizes during the rest of our maintenance.

We are uploading all new costumes that are now on the market and all the old favourites. All the costumes are from our very well known suppliers and we stock only the best.

Although the website may still be under construction our shop is still open for business as usual and we still have a large selection of different themes and an extensive selection of accessories still available. You are also more than welcome to browse through the catalogues we have in the shop to see if there was anything you would like us to order for you.

We are especially looking forward to getting into stock the new lines that some of our suppliers are bringing out over the coming year. Earlier this month the annual spring fayre took place in Birmingham where all our suppliers bring out there new products to showcase. There are some amazing new costumes that are coming out so keep your eyes peeled for some ingenious ideas.
