About Us


We are Elaine and Sue - co-owners of The Handcrafted Party!

We met when our children attended the same nursery well over ten years ago now, and we have been best buddies ever since!

We've always shared a passion for hosting fun kid's parties for our children, and we've lost count of the number of times we have both been decorating cakes and making party favours, well into the small hours of the morning.  We definitely know, first-hand, how much hard work goes into planning parties and celebrations and making them happen!

On 1st February 2020, just before lockdown, we opened the doors to our lovely little party and balloon shop, and it is jam-packed with goodies! 

Not only can you get fantastic bespoke balloon creations, such as balloon garlands and sculptures, but you will also find an array of party accessories and items to hire to ensure that your event is perfectly catered for. There's decorations, tableware, personalised gifts, vintage tea sets, backdrops, plinths, light-up letters, candy carts and welcome boards.  

We can work personally with you to help plan your event, advising on colours and themes and designing personalised items too.  We know how frustrating and challenging it can be trying to find decorations to fit in with unique party themes - we want to help you create your parties with ease!    

If you can't see what you are looking for online or in our shop, please ask by either sending us a message or popping into the shop to see us - we are always more than happy to help.

We aim to have all of our products and services online eventually, and we are working hard to make that happen so please keep checking in with our website as we will be adding new products all the time.

Based at The Plant Plot garden centre, in Lichfield, there is ample free parking on-site for the collection of your pre-ordered items; we can take orders in a variety of ways, including via social media, email, telephone or the website!

Drop-in if you can - we'd love to meet you!​
