By Shindigs on 3 April 2017 (No comments - click here to comment)

When you buy someone a really big present, the task of wrapping it can be an insurmountable one – a 10-person job, if you will! Not to mention how much wrapping paper you’ll need! Why not avoid all that place a big, shiny bow on it? Whether it be a first car for a family member, a brand new car on the lot (car dealers, we’re looking at you!), large household appliances like washing machines (or even a house itself!), a bike or any large gift – a giant gift bow says it all! Here at Shindigs, we’ve recently received a metallic red car bow which can be used for any of these things! This giant car ribbon measures 18in. (45cm) when assembled and will make any gift look even better! This giant gift bow is available for ordering online or for purchase in-store, so don’t wait, otherwise they might sell out – if you... continue reading
Australian Flags for ANZAC Day 2017
By Shindigs on 28 March 2017 (No comments - click here to comment)

ANZAC Day is nearly here and it’s important to remember why it’s such an important day for Australia. On April 25 th each year, we remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and lost their lives in wars and conflicts, including the conflict at Gallipoli in WW1. On this day, we remember and celebrate the ideals that the ANZAC spirit represents – most importantly, mateship. Anzac biscuits are a popular treat in Australia and are synonymous with ANZAC Day. They’re a good way to commemorate the occasion and are very easy to make – the recipe originates from the recipe that was used to make biscuits to send to the ANZACs. Due to the nature of the ingredients, the biscuits didn’t perish in transit and were, thus, perfect for sending to our troops. Australian flags... continue reading

Balloon care in the heat!
By Shindigs on 20 February 2017 (No comments - click here to comment)

The heat in Australia can be scorching, but we Aussies will still party no matter the temperature! Unfortunately the helium inside balloons can expand rapidly in the heat, meaning that party balloons may not last for very long unless they’re well taken care of. When picking balloons up from our store, a customer must do so in a car with air conditioning to create a comfortable (not cold) temperature for balloon transport. Similarly, the venue will need to be a comfortable (not cold) environment for optimum balloon conditions. If the balloons are too cold, they will shrink or look deflated. Please note, balloons will not last outside in cases of extreme heat. Here at Shindigs, we always do our best to inflate the balloons as late as possible prior to the booked collection time and make sure the balloons are looking their best when th... continue reading
