Attracting more than 100 000 people to Flemingtoncourse Racecourse every year, Melbourne Cup Day is one of Australia’s most popular social and racing events — and is even a public holiday in the state of Victoria. Because most schools and businesses close to celebrate the Melbourne Cup across the country, it’s the perfect time to throw a Melbourne Cup themed party and partake in the fun. Whether you’re preparing to kit out the office, a hired venue or your house with Melbourne Cup decorations, you’ve come to the right place.

For those planning to throw a party, Unique Party Shop has a wide range of Melbourne Cup party decorations that will set the perfect atmosphere and get everyone excited — from racehorse balloons to full-size jockey helmets, racehorse tablecloths and hanging derby day whirls.

Melbourne Cup party supplies for serving food and drinks
One of the most exciting parts of being involved in the Melbourne Cup festivities is the delicious finger foods and tasty champagne. If you’re having a party that is true to Melbourne Cup style, why not include themed cutlery and crockery to really make a statement? For those sticking strictly to the racing theme, we have horse paper cups and napkins to match with the rest of our horse-themed Melbourne Cup party decorations like the horse racing banners, jockey cardboard cut-outs and multi-coloured racehorse confetti. Otherwise, you can mix and match our colourful tablecloths, cutlery sets, different shaped party plates and bowls, depending on your unique vision for the party.
Set the theme from start to finish
For those who like to plan a fully thought-out party, we have a range of Melbourne Cup decorations and supplies that really go the extra mile. Ignite the excitement of your guests with an old-school physical party invitation (horse themed, of course). Then, why not plan a few race-related activities throughout the event, such as friendly betting and horse-show throwing? With first-place trophy-shaped balloons, we have the perfect prizes for the winners of your party games. The departing moments of a party are often the most memorable for guests, so be sure to see them home in style with a horse-themed party or loot bag filled with useful and fun goodies that summarise the day you spent together.
