Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means: sun, festivities, and parties for all the kiddos born during the warmest months of the year. Party planning can be dreadful if that’s not your wheelhouse, but it can also be fun if you enjoy the creative element.
Having the right essentials at your fingertips can make throwing a kids party together easier. Those goods are all the seemingly small but sometimes hard-to-find things you need to make your child happy, like themed decorations, party favors and sweet treats. We did a little digging and found a few Black-owned brands that provide some of these items and more.
Not only will you be supporting some melanated folks, but you can also provide a personalized experience for your littles in the process.
Party Dash Photo Props
Our kids are growing up in the digital age, meaning they’re likely fans of selfies or social media. Party Dash has a range of props with different themes including dinosaurs, unicorns, mermaids and moon-themed ones. Photo props can be a fun way to keep the kids engaged and also take fun pictures that will make the day memorable. A good thing about props is they’re something any age group can use and enjoy.
Hella Black Birthday Cards
Giving your kids birthday cards is a way to create memories, even if they’re on the younger side. You can write special messages inside and keep them until they’re old enough to go back and read them. Hella Black does a range of cards, including ones for children’s birthdays.

Snack tables at kids parties are a must, and what’s a snack table without popcorn? Poptritional sells kettle corn and white cheddar popcorn that contain protein, zinc, calcium and vitamin D.
