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.

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.
