Party Perfect: Piñatas and Funky Balloons in Cairo

As fun as
parties can be, they can also be very exhausting. The days leading up to the
party can be especially stressful for the host as well as the guest, who must bring a gift. And of course not just any gift; but a nice gift. After all, you don’t
want it to end up in the recipient’s closet (or trashcan). Organising a party
might be even worse because you have to take care of crucial matters such as organising
the food and decorations. It would of course be awful if your party lacked
essential decor like purple metallic balloons. If you want to make it easier on
yourself, go to Party Perfect in Dokki. All kidding aside, if you really want purple metallic balloons, you can
get them here.

Perfect specialises in party supplies and decorations. Balloon-wise, you can
choose from dozens of colours and patterns. There are metallic balloons, as
well as ones with hearts and other prints. You can choose from normal,
large and extra large sizes for between 5LE to 8LE per balloon. There
are also large balloons with slogans such as ‘Happy Birthday’, which sell for a painful 25LE.
If you really want a really a unique balloon, though; try the cupcake or pie-shaped
balloons (75LE).

The most
exciting items in the shop are the piñatas, which can be customised into any
shape you want. For those who don’t know, these are Mexican papier-mâché figures decorated and filled with candy. The idea is to hit the
piñata with a stick while blindfolded, until it breaks and explodes with candy. Piñatas start at 150LE and can be filled with whatever sweets or chocolates you
wish, and shaped to whatever you’d like: horse, airplane, heart; you name it,
they can make it.

from funky decorations, Party Perfect also offers gifts, including an extensive
collection of gifts for newborns and toddlers. There are cute pacifiers, teddy
bears and a collection of Chico toys.

For the more
fashionable kids, you can purchase child-friendly eau de toilette, including Spiderman,
Mickey Mouse and Disney princess fragrances for between 90LE and 125LE. Grown-ups
who secretly still fancy Disney products can purchase a Disney mug (59LE) for their
morning coffee.

are also party poppers (25LE) and sparkles (10LE) to add a little zing to your festivities. And if you really can’t find
a nice gift and don’t know how to say it with words, then opt for a greeting
card, of which there are many diverse choices of. Happy partying Cairo!

360 Tip

You can buy a basket at the shop and fill it up with various gifts. It gets wrapped and then you have a nice, original gift basket.
