And let’s face it, that’s the key to a great party theme. One that’s nice and easy to throw together (and that the kids will love, of course). From table decorations to party bags and favours and even the party cake, we take you through some of our top choices when it comes to pulling together the perfect Bluey birthday party.
Meet The Heeler Family
Wondering where all the hype for Bluey comes from? Before you go on the hunt for birthday party decorations, let’s take this chance to better acquaint you with this loveable Heeler family.
This animated TV show, premiered on ABC Kids on 1 October 2018. That’s right, the show has only been around for three short years, but it has had a huge impact in that time.
Bluey (the main character) is a six-year-old heeler pup who loves to play. Something that any child can relate to! This is actually what makes this show so enjoyable – it’s extremely relatable. Not just for the kids, but parents too. There’s plenty of quips thrown in there to get a laugh from the parents, as let’s face it, we can all relate to raising a couple of energetic kids!
Bluey lives in Brisbane with her parents, Bandit (dad) and Chilli (mum), along with her four-year-old sister Bingo. There’s plenty of fun games throughout that you can take inspiration from as well. The statue game is a favourite, and it also makes for a great party game (something to keep in mind as well).
Shopping For Party Decorations
Throwing together the perfect party can be overwhelming to say the least. That’s one of the reasons we set up DIY Party Central in the first place. To help make the whole experience even easier for you.
Before you start your shopping, make sure you head over and download our FREE party planning checklist, to help get you organised for the big day. You can check off everything from food to invitations, to make sure you keep track of the whole event from start to finish.
Parties are meant to be fun. Of course, as parents, pulling everything together tends to be a little stressful (to say the least). This DIY party planner is the perfect way to pop that fun back into party planning, so you and your little one can have a great time planning the main event.
BLUEY TABLE DECORATING
It’s time to start decorating! There’s no better place to start than the party table. Depending on the type of party you are having, there might just be one main party table. This is where all the food would go, where guests can come and help themselves throughout the party.
You might also choose to have some kids’ party tables as well. As you might expect, these are smaller tables that sit at their height, where kids can actually sit down to enjoy some party food. Here’s some great Bluey party table supplies that will help you out no matter what type of table you choose to have. From Bluey paper cups, to table centrepieces, you can really bring together a theme at the party table.
You can’t go wrong starting off with some Bluey party plates. When it comes to big parties, we tend to place the napkins on the party table, so people can come along and enjoy the party food throughout the event. We then save the plates for the main event: the birthday cake! This way everyone gets a plate, and they aren’t picked up and discarded throughout the party, with people coming over and picking up a second and a third each time they come for food. Of course, if you have a kids’ party table, you can set them up with a plate each in their spot. Easy!
These Bluey table centrepieces are the perfect way to have a bit of fun and colour at the party table. They are so easy to pop up, and look incredible as well. They are made from thick cardboard (so will survive a little play with the kids throughout the party) with colourful honeycomb paper on the bottom that gives off their bright and fun look.
The best part? You get seven of them in the one pack, so it’s such a quick and easy way to add some colour and fun to your party without much hassle. Each one is also double-sided, so can be enjoyed from anywhere in the room.
Why not just go all out with this entire Bluey table set. It comes with everything you need to set up the perfect party table, including 20 plates, 20 napkins, and the fun Bluey table cloth.
Buying in bulk like this is a great way to save some money, while making sure everything matches! When it’s sold in a set, you can ensure the patterns are the same, so that you have just the one look for your entire Bluey party.
BLUEY PARTY BACKDROP
A backdrop is the perfect wow statement for any party. It can really pull the whole theme together. In fact, if you don’t to go overboard with the party decorations, then just invest in a backdrop. It’s all you need for a fabulous party theme. Thankfully, there are plenty of options out there, and they don’t cost an arm and a leg. After all, you’re probably never going to use the same theme again.
This gorgeous Bluey backdrop just screams party! There’s a rainbow, colourful balloons, presents, and Bluey and Bingo are even doing a birthday dance.
The backdrop is nice and lightweight, and can be wiped clean with water. This means if can be used over and over if you wish (or you can hand on to someone else!).
Is there anything better than a loving family? This Bluey backdrop just spells love, with a good mix of balloons, flowers and fun in there as well. Made from vinyl materials, the colours really pop, making the perfect statement for your Bluey party fun.
BLUEY PARTY DECORATIONS
Now it’s time to decorate the party! You can go as crazy or as low key as you like, depending on a number of factors, such as where the party is (indoors or outdoors, big or small venue). how many kids are coming and how much effort you want to put in.
There’s lots of different ways you can make maximum impact with minimal effort. Here are some of our favourite Bluey decorations that will really make your party pop!
There’s no better way to make the perfect party statement than with a balloon garland! They might seem like they’re super hard and tricky, but as long as you’re prepared to blow up balloon after balloon, the rest is easy.
This Bluey balloon garland comes with 60 balloons (that’s a lot of blowing, you might consider investing in a balloon pump). It also comes with a strip that can be used to create the garland. By fitting each balloon to the strip (in any order you like), you can create a wow-worthy scene.
If you’re looking for the easiest way to add some fun to a party, just opt for balloons! They not only look great, but they also make the perfect party fun for kids as well. There’s nothing kids love more than chasing after balloons around the room and playing keepy-uppy (another Bluey favourite where you have to keep the balloon off the ground).
These Bluey balloons are great, as they have pictures of our favourite heelers on the front! Each pack comes with 32 balloons, with 9 different styles in each pack.

EXTRA TIPS FOR PARTY SUPPLIES
If you’re pulling together a party, here are some extra tips to help you out when shopping for those all-important party supplies:
- Pick a theme first. There’s no point going out and buying your party supplies, if you don’t yet know the theme of your party. The theme brings it all together and creates the unison look for your party! Bluey party supplies are the perfect way to bring together a Bluey party!
- Hav a Google. When you do decide on a theme, before locking it in, it helps to do a quick Google first. You want to make sure it’s nice and easy to shop party supplies for that theme. Otherwise, you will find it a challenge getting everything you need!
- Shop in advance: it can help to source things from overseas, and it can certainly save you money in the process. The only downside to this, is that it can take a long time for the party supplies to arrive. It helps to shop well in advance to make sure you have everything you need on the big day.
- Pick some colours. Even with a theme, it helps to pick three central colours for your party. This means, everything that isn’t on theme, can still be in the right colours. For example, your main colours for a Bluey party might be: orange, blue and white. Instead of shopping everything with Bluey splashed all over, swap some items for plain colours. You can have plain blue napkins, plain orange, white and blue balloons, or even streamers. It helps break up all the patterns and create a less busy look.
- Take lots of photos. We are often so busy running around on the big day that photos get forgotten. Once the set up is done, go ahead and take plenty of photos before the kids even arrive. Once the kids are there, go and ask another adult to be on dedicated photo-taking duties. That way, it won’t get forgotten.
- Have fun! Don’t let the stress of the day get to you. After all, birthday parties are all about fun. Does it really matter if the streamers fall? Of course not! Does it really matter if your balloon garland isn’t perfect? No! What really matters is that the birthday child has plenty of fun on their big day.
