In 2022 popular party themes were unicorns, under the sea, superheroes and Disney’s Encanto. Busy creating themed games, treasure hunts and music, for a fully immersive experience we incorporated extravagant birthday teas with cascading balloon installations, edible props, and even zip lining into neverland!
So let’s see what 2023 has in store!
1. The Little Mermaid
The Tiktok trend of children’s reactions to the trailer makes huge moves in showing the importance of representation but as well as stellar casting, the film’s mystical, underwater narrative lends itself perfectly to a themed party! This year, expect mermaids to splash their way into your party with shell headband making, polaroid ‘shelfie’ zones and bubble discos. To transform your mermaid party into an under-the-sea world, let sustainable ocean products take centre-stage with edible seaweed cups, glistening sea-glass decorations and even coral centrepieces; fantastic eco-conscious additions to make part of your world.
2. Super Mario Bros.
Our favourite moustached plumbers are hitting the big screen this year and we have already had tons of requests for this theme! We can’t wait to organise assault courses, go karting, coin collecting and bespoke adventure races. This party theme is perfect for competition and works well both indoors or outdoors.
3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
The new Willy Wonka film will focus specifically on a young Willy Wonka and his meeting with the Oompa-Loompas on one of his earliest adventures. We’d love to follow this journey and create a chocolate emporium for you! A Wonka-themed party could include chocolate tasting, truffle making, edible wallpaper and our expert team running edible games.
Following an increase in glamping and staycations during lockdown, we’re predicting a return in popularity of outdoor parties. But these aren’t just ordinary camping sleepovers… Our ultimate camping party would include old-style movie set-ups, scavenger hunts and even slip ‘n slide; the perfect way to enjoy the great outdoors. Or, if back to the wild is more your thing, think spacious teepee-tents adorned with lights, camp-fire cooking and night time capture the flag.
5. Royal Parties
Of course, one of the biggest events this year will be the King’s Coronation. As the warmer weather comes our way in June, why not give your party the royal treatment and recreate the Royal celebrations. From crown decorating, space hopper carriage rides, super sneaky keeper of the Crown Jewels and royal biscuit decorating, why not royally wave yourself there’s no better way to get stuck into some British traditions than hosting your own king and queen themed party.
If you’re looking to mesmerise older children, mysticism and astrology are themes that we see in your future!
That’s right, tarot card reading, fortune tellers and psychic powers will transform your child’s party to a world of clairvoyant mystery. You can hire a mystical performer this year, to read your palms, find out your destiny and even see what’s written in the stars with astrology.
Cocktail masterclasses are not just for the adults- it’s time to hand over the liquid refreshments to the teens! Mocktail making is a guaranteed hit for young teens. From dry ice, UV creations and flaming tricks; mysticism and mocktails are the alliterate pair you didn’t know your party needed.
We all know the younger generation love to capture every moment, so it’s only right you have a photo booth to do just that! Move over party bags, a personalised GIF or print out provides the perfect momento.

2023 will be jam-packed with parties beyond your imagination. We’ve predicted under the sea, Mario madness, ‘choctastic’ creations, glorious glamping, Coronation celebrations and magical mysticism. Do you have any predictions? We’d love to hear them.
