Everyone loves a good party. If you’re planning a work function, a wedding, a kids’ birthday bash, or any other celebratory event, you’ll probably need a few supplies to ensure the day runs smoothly.

A party supply company makes it easy and affordable to get your hands on the furniture, food and beverage accessories, and other party features.

So, to help you put on the party of a lifetime, we’ve asked the locals to round up their favourite party supply providers in Canberra. You’ll find the top three picks in this article. Let’s get started.

What makes a great party supplies provider?

Chances are, your to-do list is pretty long leading up to and on the day of your big party. The last thing you need is an unreliable party supply company. We suggest keeping an eye out for the following characteristics:

  • Extensive range of party supplies. Of course, you’re going to need far different supplies for a work get-together than a seven-year-old’s unicorn-themed birthday party. Go with a party supply company with an extensive range of products suited to your specific event.
  • Reliable and easy pick-up or delivery. As we mentioned, a lot of planning and attention to detail goes into putting on a great party. The party supply hire should be quick, easy, and reliable.
  • Well priced. You don’t want to be over-charged for sub-par (think dirty or faulty accessories) party supplies. Instead, expect well-priced, top-quality supplies.
  • Excellent customer service. Feeling stressed about your upcoming party? The party supply hire process should come with excellent customer service – that means staff that are willing to go the extra mile to turn your vision into a reality.
