Then there’s a pamper party option (Prospect only) which includes a mini mani and pedi and rose petal foot soak. Party guests receive pink lemonade and mini cupcakes on arrival and food is more high tea/canape style plus a lolly bar. Kids get the use of silky robes and magazines and everyone gets a glitter tattoo.

And while the kids have a fabulous party, parents can relax and enjoy a coffee from the in-house Muffin Break!

At Not Just A Party Bag, we endeavour to create a custom made product in the size, shape and form you require. From a simple, traditional lolly bag to more complex, theme-based creations. As the name suggests, we don’t just make ‘lolly bags’ – hampers, treat boxes, candy martini cups and footy candy cones are just some of the jobs we’ve tackled so far.

It is as easy as sending an email or message, outlining what you have in mind, and then either picking up your favours or having them delivered. If you’re short on time and ideas, we gladly offer appropriate options that fit in with your celebration.

‘Let us help you think outside the bag!’
