You receive two deliveries from us. The first is your special Party On A Plate invites approximately 5 weeks before the party, or within a few days of placing an order if there is less than 5 weeks. The second delivery is the remainder of your order which arrives the day prior to the party. This will usually comprise of 3 boxes: the cake, the party food in a special Woolcool temperature controlled box system and a box containing party bags, tableware and cleaning pack.


Party On A Plate provides fun invites to suit your party theme. They're a little bit different and we know your little guests will love them.


Getting the invites out on time becomes a doddle. Invites are sent to you in good time for you to get inviting. You confirm final numbers 10 days before the party.



How your food will arrive.


Our party food is safely delivered in a Woolcool boxed packaging system which means that it is kept at a safe temperature during transit. Your party will be delivered the day before the party to ensure that you have everything in good time and allow you time to familiarise yourself with the contents. We recommend that you transfer the contents of the food box to your fridge upon receipt. 


In order to keep food as fresh as possible we leave fruit and vegetables whole for you to slice and prepare to suit ahead of the party.

Here are some examples of party food menus.


Our party bags are a hit every time. 


We pride ourselves on the fact that we are able to offer a bespoke service which means that no two parties will be exactly the same. Many of our party bags include an activity connected to the party theme. If you have something specific in mind then just let us know and we will do the rest. However our clients usually leave it for us to decide what to put in the bags leaving us with the freedom to source contents that will give you the very best value for money. 


All our party bags come complete with a Party On A Plate hanging gift label and room to add a piece of take home birthday cake, (we provide paper napkins for you to wrap this in). We also add a little something extra for the party girl or boy.


Our Bronze package party bags arrive in brightly coloured quality paper bags with twisted handles topped with colourful tissue paper for that extra special touch. Our Silver and Gold package party bags are of a proportionally higher value.

We have some example Party bags here.


Our cakes are made bespoke to order and are absolutely delicious. When you contact us to book your party we will discuss your cake requirements and confirm what has been agreed in the booking confirmation.  


Options include vanilla or chocolate sponge, design your own and tiered cakes. We include candles, matches and paper napkins as standard in all our packages.


If you want something else, maybe a different sponge or one that caters for dietary requirements, then please do ask and we will be delighted to assist. We have even managed to deliver a very well frozen, two-layer, ice cream cake for a little girl who doesn’t like cake!


The following comes as standard with each of the packages.

Tablecover - a long length of biodegradable banqueting roll that can be cut to suit. Plates - biodegradable and compostable.

Paper napkins. Knives, Forks and/or spoons as required - wooden cutlery that is compostable. Plastic cups - PET 1 and suitable for household recycling. Serving platters - attractive palm leaf platters that are biodegradable. Table decoration (enhanced appropriately for Silver and Gold)



Our cleaning packs are always well received for that caught-out moment and include the following.

Jay cloth

Pack of household cleaning wipes
