Parenting is great! There are ups and downs but for the most part it’s pretty fun right!? Each year, I struggle as the non-crafty, Pinterest fail mom as I try and determine what to do for my son’s birthday party. I don’t necessarily feel the pressure from my other amazingly crafty mom friends but I do envy their abilities and so I get on Pinterest and make a board to come up with ideas for the party…. The thing is I don’t really follow through with what I have pinned because let’s be real, as an expat in Bangkok to try and find all of the objects to make the Pinterest board happen means work. It’s not a one stop shop to Walmart or Target but instead multiple trips to the one party store in town, Chinatown, Big C, the malls, and this could take days. At this point, you have spent so much money you are literally about to break the bank, not to mention you still need a cake, maybe entertainment for the party, and the list goes on and on. It’s stressful but you love your kid and I personally enjoy celebrating birthdays; I think they are important and should be recognized so I want it to be special!
I recently found a fantastic alternative to the stressful party planning in Bangkok that would require basically a phone call to make a plan and that’s it!
Poppins is a new customizable party service in town that caters to any budget and can help you plan any theme your child might be interested in at the time of the event; from outer space, princesses, to dinosaurs. Not only does Poppins help you plan your party, they offer theme coordinated packages that are ready to use kits also called “Party In A Box” to get the ball rolling if you only need a little help with the event. One of the best parts of the decorative pieces is that after the event you and your child have a beautiful keepsake you can put in their baby book or hang in their room.
Party In A Box is the box of fun that will really set your party apart. Poppins offers two different types of Party In A Box options; necessities and customizable pieces. The necessities package has balloons, a balloon pump, ribbons, and paper straws. The customizable package has additional paper and cloth bunting, personalized banners and signage, cupcake liners and toppers, confetti, streamers, thank you notes, invites, homemade and beautifully decorated cookies all to match your theme. If you still want to feel like the Pinterest mom you can get your Party In A Box package in a do it yourself (DIY) option where you are given the pre-cut shapes and materials to put together yourself of you can buy it assembled (this would be my preference).
Poppins does not offer party planning services, meaning they will not come to set up your party venue on the day of the event. They simply provide the theme ideas and the do it yourself kits. They will provide delivery in the Sukhumvit area from BTS Chitlom to On Nut for a fee of 150 baht if you are outside of this area you can coordinate a pickup location with a Poppins representative.
If you would like Poppins to help you plan your next event, from a baby shower to birthday party you can contact them via firstname.lastname@example.org. Since every party is customizable, prices will vary but you can discuss that with a representative when you start your planning.
Really a Party In A Box… it doesn’t get much more easy and stress free than that! Enjoy!
