Party Ark was established by Emily and Alistair Potts in March 2005 to help busy parents create fun and original parties for their children, easily. With over 100,000 satisfied customers, and orders sent all over the world each year, I was lucky enough to purchase the business from Emily and Alistair in 2017. 

Whilst we are still small and privately owned, the business, now in its 14th year of trading, has gone from strength to strength.  Having successfully satisfied the children's party supplies market, we now also offer high quality and discerning partyware for all occasions and celebration throughout the year for both children and adults. 

Our collections are curated to offer you something unique and a little different and perhaps some product ideas that you may not have thought to include for your party. Whether it is a traditional pirate or princess theme you are looking for, you are organising a friend's baby shower or hen party, entertaining family or friends, or perhaps organising your annual Christmas office party, we have it covered!

Passionate about quality and service, we only stock good quality products from carefully selected and trusted suppliers, we aim to dispatch orders as quickly as possible - often the same day, offer a next day delivery service in the UK and are always on hand to help with any questions you may have.  I wish you many years of happy parties, and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting Party Ark.

With best wishes


Tom Klimes
