It's that time of the year - your child is about to celebrate a birthday! So you choose a theme, plan the birthday cake, work out what to feed everyone (not forgetting everyone's dietary requirements!), start researching the decorations, create the invitations and the list goes on... And then there's the ultimate decision - do you party at home or choose a venue?
You could panic OR you could celebrate with us!
We are here to ensure that you spend more time enjoying your child’s celebration, and less time sourcing expensive party decorations (that you'll only use once), cakes, treats, food and beverages - all the fabulous items you need to bring your themed event to life.
AND! you won’t need to stay up all night setting up the party space – leaving you too tired the next day to really appreciate your child's excitement. With our Head Honcho as your own personal party assistant and incredible teams of professional party suppliers at your service, your every need will be catered to, no matter how big or small…
We offer all of the usual services you can expect for your child’s party; full party styling / themed party decorations, treat buffets, lolly / candy tables, beverage stations, custom stationery / party printables, birthday cakes, catering, furniture, balloons, party favours, face painters, jumping castles, props and styling as well as a host of traditional and custom designed games tailored to the ages of your guests and party theme.
BUT! Did you know that we also create fully themed parties that can be shipped to your door across Australia with free shipping?
AND we also offer full event space themeing too. Would you like a beautifully styled area for the adults to enjoy whilst the children are having fun playing games and winning awesome prizes with your party host? Or maybe it’s your child’s very 1st birthday and together with your themed dessert buffet, you would also like a fully styled dining table to enjoy a meal with your loved ones?
We can provide everything you would typically expect from a big budget event company, just re-imagined and scaled to suit your family budget.
Let our passion for your celebration enable you to create your next memory for life…
Choosing your venue is an important consideration mainly due to the intricate and elaborate set up of our event spaces. They really are truly special, and something we pride ourselves on creating just for you.
Whilst we do on occasion service outdoor areas, we have found that too often environmental factors (such as the wind and hot sun) play havoc with the party decorations and food items (picture melted chocolate in the lolly jars and paper plates, napkins and party bags flying off the tables).
To help with choosing the option that is best for your children’s party; we have put together a few helpful hints and tips.
When choosing Pop the Balloon! to create your ideal party space, we highly recommend opting for an indoor space as a first option. If partying at home is not possible, there are many council operated community halls in your local area that provide fantastic access for your guests. They are clean, safe and come with all the essential facilities to ensure your party experience is the best it can be. They often hire out hourly and can be as little as $30* per hour. Further information on where to find your local community hall for hire, (for the NSW Central Coast region), can be found at: https://www.centralcoast.nsw.gov.au/recreation/planning-events/hall-and-venue-finder
If considering an outdoor option for your children’s party, keep in mind that the wind and hot sun will have an impact on the success of your event, not to mention rain! The best outdoor options are in a protected area – away from the wind in particular – so that the effort that goes into creating your unique party space will still be there, ready and waiting for your guests to arrive. It also ensures that the party setting looks just as breathtaking as when we first set it up.
Pop the Balloon! Children’s Parties and Events do have marquee’s for hire which can provide basic protection from mild weather if your preferred outdoor location does not provide this. Feel welcome to ask for this option at the time of booking.
Community parks and public spaces can be a great alternative to partying at home, however as mentioned, it’s worth keeping in mind the challenges that come with them.
Public spaces are also worth a special mention, particularly with the more popular parks as there are no guarantees that your preferred ‘spot’ will be available. Often your preferred area is the same as everyone else’s!
Some tips for partying in public parks include:
*Check your local Council's website for hiring fees and associated charges.
Pop the Balloon! can provide you with any necessary paperwork required by your local council to enable us and our preferred suppliers to be permitted to enter the venue and set up for a party. Please enquire at the time of booking for details.

In our adult life, many of us experience working in organisations that focus heavily on team building, leadership and mentoring skills. Significant amounts of research and financial investment has gone into proving the value of utilising these activities to meet organisational objectives.
But what about our children?
What if they too could benefit from the types of activities usually reserved to aid adults build better working relationships with each other? Well, why not?
Exclusive to our school vacation care programs, PTB have designed a number of age appropriate team building activities aimed at assisting children to learn more about themselves and each other. It is our view that the more children discover about themselves, the more likely they are to engage positively with each other both within the vacation care, and broader school environments.
The games and activities are designed with ‘fun’ as the foremost priority. They encourage the children to come together and work collaboratively to problem solve and overcome various challenges to meet the objectives of the game.
'FROZEN' - from the Signature Party range

Today Rochelle hosted my daughters 5th birthday party with a frozen theme! From the moment I contacted Rochelle she was extremely helpful from creating a masterpiece within my budget and also sourcing a jumping castle and of course Elsa to make a guest appearance. It was all so stress free. The amount of effort she puts into her parties is incredible, not just a professional but a genuinely lovely person. Thank you for everything.
‘BUTTERFLY BALL’ – from the ‘Style Me!’ Range of Children’s Party Tables with Entertainment
Renee Govoronsky-Smith, 13 November 2017
My twins Alice and Ava were the luckiest little 3 year olds in the world on Saturday when they celebrated their birthday with the absolutely magical Butterfly Ball Party we won through Facebook. All of the children had an absolute ball which was evident through their squeals of delight and laughter during their entire party. Rochelle's attention to detail was immaculate from the hanging ribbons, to the little butterflies hidden throughout and the adorable plates and cups. To add to the experience Rochelle kept the children entertained with endless games, butterfly hunt, art and even prizes. They were also lucky enough to have an enormous number 3 made out of balloons thanks to Chanelle which added to the magic. I can't thank you enough for creating such a memorable and magical experience for our little girls. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!! Thank you again Rochelle.
