We Have Your Birthday Party Supplies and Decorations in Brisbane
Remember when you were young and how important it was to you that your birthday party was fun and cool. You and your friends would talk about it for weeks after it was over. Presents, of course, were always the best part of the party (especially if it was your birthday) but the games and the lolly bags were also much anticipated. If your parents had gone that extra mile, perhaps your celebration had a theme – a popular movie, well-known TV cartoon characters, science experiments, fairy tale characters, to name a few.
Now that you’re the parent, you want your children to have great birthday parties. Maybe you’re having a birthday shindig for a friend or loved one who is hitting one of those magic numbers – 16, 18, 30, 40, 50, etc. If you want to find the very best in party supplies in Brisbane, you need to visit the Unique Party Shop. We have everything in stock to make your child, friend or loved ones’ birthday a day they will remember for years.
Fabulous birthday party decorations for your Brisbane celebration
Birthday party celebrations began in ancient times. They were a way to scare away bad spirits that were believed to arrive during big changes each year, like a birthday. The Germans resurrected the tradition in the 1500s when they started selling one-layer cakes for their customer’s birthdays and weddings. They also brought back the tradition of putting a candle on the cake for each year of a child’s life. We blow out the candles and make a wish because, in ancient times, cultures believed that smoke carried their wishes up to the heavens.
The song “Happy Birthday to You” has an interesting history as well. In 1893 two Kentucky school teachers wrote a song with the familiar melody, which was published in a songbook used by teachers of the day, called “Good Morning to You.” No one knows who changed the words to celebrate birthdays, but it was used in an Irving Berlin musical in 1933. One of the teachers sued for the copyright and won. The current owner splits the royalties generated by the song, considered the most recognized song in English, with the teachers’ estates, about $2 million a year.
