Party Things competition

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)

– tables and chairs hire
– gazebo hire
– popcorn machine hire
– candyfloss machine hire
– chocolate fountain hire
– sand art sets
– party packs
