Party Things competition

By on January 28, 2012 in Kids, Win 40

Today I am thrilled to announce a new competition on Becoming you. We are partnering with Party Things, a one stop party shop, to offer you some great prizes and exclusive discounts on kids party paraphernalia!

Party Things is a great new concept in party planning allowing you to book everything for your child’s party online in one place and have it delivered to your door! They operate in the Cape Town Southern Suburbs – from Rondebosch to Muizenberg. Party Things have built up great relationships with the best suppliers in Cape Town.

The offer the following:
– themed tableware (cups, plates, serviettes, etc)
– jumping castle hire
– tables and chairs hire
– gazebo hire
– popcorn machine hire
– candyfloss machine hire
– chocolate fountain hire
– sand art sets
– party packs
– pinatas
– cakes, cupcakes, cake pops
– gift ideas

Now if you are a mom of a little person older than one you will realise that planning a birthday party is one of the most stressful events of the year so this on-stop-shop is a really wonderful service.

Party Things is offering a fantastic prize for one lucky Cape Town reader!

1 x Starter party kit which includes a pack of plates, cups and serviettes in a theme of the winner’s choice (excluding imported ones – see *). Number of units per item – plates and cups are usually 8-10 and serviettes are usually 16-20 in a pack.

Tweety Bird
Disney Princesses
Loony Tunes

(Some great ideas for party themes there in case you were lost!!)

Party Things are also offering the following fabulous discounts to the winner:

50% off a jumping castle supplied by Rumble Grumble excl delivery (Booking needs to be done at least 3 months in advance as they are very popular.)
10% off a novelty cake baked by Nikki’s cakes
20% off a Sand Art party set with 14 cards. (R160 instead of R200)

    Could definitely do with this win as i am in the process of planning both my five year old and 3 year old’s birthday parties. One after the other! So to do this i have like both pages, posted, commented, subscribed and now i hold thumbs! I fear not having a win will result in both the boys getting a home made birthday cake (which will be a disaster because i can’t bake) and a couple of sweets 🙂 PICK ME PICK ME!

    My little boy is besotted with Thomas the tank engine, his great gran sent him one from New Zealand and now its all he can talk about, but there is no chance i would find that theme around here so this would make an awesome prize, and help out so much. I have liked both pages, but i have been a fan for a while already so its not a new like….
