What Party Supplies Do I Need to Celebrate a Birthday – see the list!

Hosting a birthday party in the near future? Every birthday celebration needs at least a basic collection of party supplies to get the right vibe set. Whether it’s a children’s birthday party, a family member’s, or if you’re throwing a surprise birthday bash for a friend, things like party balloons, party plates, and gift bags establish an aesthetic a person will hold onto forever in memory. Nothing on this list of party supplies you need is going to blow your mind or be conversation pieces. Even so, they are ‘the basics’ and if you want a rocking party, you start here.


Helium high quality balloons are a birthday party guarantee. Walk into a birthday celebration without them and you’ll feel like something is missing. You can choose from different colors, shapes, letters or even emojis. You can go with an absurdly high amount of balloons for impact, down-play it with a small collection of balloons gathered together, or shared them across the home in pairs.

Party plates and cups

Like choosing the right balloons, the party plates and cups you use are about color and the aesthetic. If you have some colors chosen for the birthday party celebration already, that’s perfect! Choose these colors in your party plates, cups, and napkins. Be conscious of any contrasting that might happen with a table cloth.
