These must-have, ready-to-use party supplies and accessories will have you throwing the ultimate children’s party in a snap!


Gone are the days when a kiddie party meant bringing out a chocolate cake and candles. Now, children’s party styling has become bigger than ever, and simple baptismals are supposed to be themed, Instagram-ready, and Pinterest-perfect. Oh, the pressure!

This is why National Book Store welcomes Meri Meri, a well-loved celebrations brand from the US. With their quirky items, hosting a party is made easier. “Meri Meri is, in fact, considered the Kate Spade New York of party supplies. It’s premium and pretty combined. With Meri Meri, we can now make celebrations instantly fabulous,” says Xandra Ramos-Padilla, National Book Store’s managing director.

Their four flagship series has party supplies that include buntings, pinwheels, invitations, beautifully designed centerpieces, and so much more. You can buy an entire collection, or mix themes. All you have to do is invite your child’s guests! Here are our favorite party picks:

Hang these Spots and Stripes Paper Globes above the entrance to the party of in clusters about stage. Throw in some garlands, too!

Meri Meri centerpieces are just amazing—look at this incredibly detailed Ahoy There Pirate Ship Centerpiece that doubles as a cupcake and party favors holder. 

They also carry standard birthday buntings, but if you’ve got a jungle theme, why not hang a fun Dinosaur Party Garland instead? 

This Dinosaur Roarrrrr Centerpiece is made of extra-durable cardboard paper that can be reused after the birthday bash. 

If your birthday girl thinks she’s a princess, then give her a castle! The I’m a Princess Centerpiece (which you can assemble yourself) will fulfill all her royal fantasies.
