Mum's genius party idea will have you legging it to Bunnings, too

Kinderling News & Features

It's the party idea so simple you’ll wish you had thought of it yourself!

Take a bow, Kylie Stingers - the Perth mum who threw her Bunnings-obsessed son, 4-year-old Carter, a Bunnings party.

Yes, that’s right, a Bunnings-themed party. Cue mini trolleys, aprons and sausage sangas for the win!

Hello, Australia

You couldn't get more Australian, reported, but I’m calling it peak parenting.

As a mum of two sons equally obssessed with the giant hardware chain, I don't think I've come across anything more fabulous. 

The genius is the simplicity.

Carter's party brief was simple: turn up to his place, which was was kitted up for the day as a pop-up Bunnings - complete with a 'garden centre' and pot plants for guests to take home, and a 'paint centre' where kids could paint plaster statues.

Even the food was ‘on theme’

No prizes for guessing what was on the party menu ... the infamous Bunnings-style sausage sandwich on bread, of course. 

Kylie told the party was even cost-effective, as the house was decorated with balloons and merchandise (like the sign pictured above) from their local Bunnings store. 

Plus, aprons, bunting and balloons came from family and friends who worked at the store.

Even Carter's birthday presents were on theme, with lots of his friends gifting the 4-year-old a Bunnings gift card. 

“He was even more excited to do that,” said Kylie.

Great result

For Kylie, the best part of the whole day was the happiness on her son’s face.

"Carter said it was the best party ever," she said. 

And you can’t ask more than that. (Except maybe a tool-themed DIY lolly bag.)

 Thanks, Kylie from Perth! Who else is stealing this idea?!
