Nowadays, party decorations are given as much thought as the food that will be served. Hence, there is a need for stylish buntings, centerpieces, and a bunch of other props. No need to look elsewhere—with the recent launch of Meri Meri here in the Philippines courtesy of National Book Store, you'll never run out of stylish ideas. Still not convinced? Here are more cute party items from Meri Meri: 

1. Ahoy There Pirate Cupcake Kit

This suits your adventurous son's or daughter's party. Have the guests wear an eye patch and bandannas to complete the pirate theme. 

2. Rose Gold Party Straws

Add a bit of sophistication to your kids’ parties with these straws. The metallic look suits any party theme just fine. 

3. Party Kids Concertina Birthday Card

If your child is a guest in another child’s birthday party, give the birthday celebrator this cute card. It’s stylish and playful at the same time—pull those paper dolls and you’ll have a bunch of paper dolls holding hands! Now, let’s all sing, “Happy Birthday to you!” 

4. I'm A Princess Small Plate

Ditch the generic paper plates—get ones that are stylish and have some personality. This plate suits a dainty princess-themed party or a mini-tea party a la Alice in Wonderland. 

5. Dream Catcher Tattoos

Let kids be creative—consider tattooing as a fun activity! These dreamcatcher tattoos are a whimsical choice. Eyes and lips tattoos are also available. Take your pick, or you can just get them all!
