Where do you buy party supplies? In the States, there are so many places you can go and I love that. I loved going to a party section at Target back in the States. I figured out in Jakarta that there are many department store toy sections and super markets that have a party corners, but you might not find everything you need or you like in one place.
After I decided not to give my girls a birthday party last month as it felt so daunting to plan one in a new city, I found out about this place through my friend. This place is a tiny party store in Kemang near Hero (supermarket) Kemang. It is very cute and you pretty much find everything you need in this place. Unless you live near there, you might not want to come all the way out there for party supplies as the traffic in Kemang can get pretty bad depending on the time. However, it’s a cute little place with many party goods that I find similar to what I find in the States. The prices are slightly higher than what you pay for in the States.
Ask for “Hero Kemang”. There is only one Hero Kemang (as of now), so if you tell a taxi driver “Hero Kemang” then more likely the driver would know, but sometimes they don’t. After you turn into this small street towards Hero Kemang, pay attention to the right, you’ll find this small store on your right as you drive towards Hero Kemang. If you see flower stalls in the corner of the street, you’ve driven passed it.
If you are looking for other party supply stores in Jakarta, here is a list of places as well. Guidebooks “Family Guide to Jakarta” are also available and very helpful!
I hope you have a lovely weekend!!!
