The best party supply stores in Singapore!
1. The Children’s Showcase
Not just a brilliant toy store and a great spot for unique gift shopping, The Children’s Showcase has a fab selection of cool party supplies! From retro party plates and stripy paper straws, cute invitations and paper decorations, there are tons to browse from. And, if you love throwing parties, you’ll want to invest in a set of brightly coloured melamine plates, cups and gorgeous serving trays by Rice, too. Parties just got oh-so-pretty.
Where: Tanglin Mall, 163 Tanglin Road #03-16A, Singapore 247933 and Cluny Court, 501,#02-23 Bukit Timah Road, Singapore
Parties can involve big bucks, and we’re all guilty of blowing the budget when it comes to kids’ birthday parties. But do we really have to? Kids tend to be happy with a cake, some games, their mates and a goodie bag. Really, it’s us who cares about the plates, the tablecloths, the balloons and the plastic cups to match the decor. We say, reign in the spending and make the most of $2-a-pop Daiso when it comes to party supplies! Psst, they even have party blowers and hats, too. This place is chock-a-block with great party favour ideas (you’ll find markers, mini Kokeshi dolls, games and more).
Hot tip: If you have a ‘theme’ for your party, then buy the plain plastic cups and plates and then print and colour your own themed DIY wrappers to liven them up.

And there literally is something for every age, every party style and every budget.

8. Party With Us
Not all kids want a character-themed party, but if your little one is dino-obsessed, fancies a Pokemon party or maybe wants to be King or Queen of the jungle at their bash, this party supply store in Singapore is the place to search for the more obscure themes your kiddo has come up with. Party With Us has disco fever shiny ball patterned plates, the pirate treasure map tablecloths and the safari-print balloons for theme choices a step away from all things Disney!
Already ordering all your party food online from Redmart, then don’t forget that they also stock a great selection of balloons and other party staples too! It’s also super reasonable and means you have the ease of all your party goodies arriving together straight to your door. Can’t find it on Redmart? Then you can always hop over to Lazada (just be sure to check delivery dates if you’re ordering from China!)
10. Misty Daydream
If you’re not already sold by the name, then you will be when you take a peek at the beautiful offerings online at Misty Daydream. We’re talking IG worthy perfection, with metallic name backdrop signs, alongside matching balloon bouquets. They specialise in first birthdays, alongside other occasions, but there’s something for all birthday celebrations here. We reckon the teens will be big fans of some of the customisable gifts like the cute compact mirrors as alternatives to kiddy party bags.
Happy shopping, party people!
