Creating fun birthday party supplies like animal themed straws calls for something equally whimsical to drink out of. Consider getting a coconut cup to pair with a monkey straw or a circus cup to pair with an elephant straw. Want to go with a different theme? Make straws with crowns fit for a king or queen and pair your homemade birthday party supplies with goblets for a royal birthday affair. Balloons are one of the most important birthday party supplies for a child. If you're keeping it simple, you can use solid-colored balloons and mix and match different hues to fit the theme of the party. On the other hand, birthday party supplies have gotten more and more elaborate and balloons are no exception. Mylar balloons are shiny and metallic and come in a variety of shapes, such as stars, numbers, even cartoon characters. The fun part about using these balloons is you can pick one flashy Mylar balloon and surround it with plain balloons and still create a dramatic effect. If you're throwing a theme party, there are also Mylar balloons with television and movie characters. Regular balloons also come in fun styles, like cow-prints or stars.
