Birthday Party Fun With Roowsi


Disclosure: Roowsi kindly gifted us two packages for this birthday party. As always, all opinions are our own and we only ever partner with companies we truly adore.

Recently we discovered the local lower mainland company, Roowsi. This company has an amazing game changing concept; rent items, have fun and return them. They even deliver and pick up so it’s an easy experience for you. No missing out just because you don’t have something or having to buy an item just for one time use.

Hosting A Kids Birthday Party

One of my favourite things to do is plan and host my children’s birthday parties. Over the last decade we’ve done everything from the slightly elaborate party to the old fashion living room party with just a handful of family. There has been homemade cakes and fancy custom designed cakes.

Planning for our youngest’s fourth birthday I knew it was going to be on the smaller scale with a few friends and family. It was a must to have a delicious cake from our favourite local bake shop and I want the kids to have some simple fun. I feel like if you have the chance to eat cake, make it an amazing cake and so we did.

How Renting With Roowsi Works

This is where Roowsi came into the picture. They have the option to rent a huge variety of items that could be used for our kids party. Items we wouldn’t normally just have laying around our home. Like six cow hoppers and a full on ball pit with slide. We used their website to figure out what items we wanted and they confirmed the drop off and pick up time.

It was pleasantly surprising to see all of the different types of things Roowsi has to rent for a party. Everything from reusable party plates to a light box to create custom messages. All things that would help make for a fun birthday party without having to go buy things for keeps and figure out how to store them.

This ball pit came with everything you need. Including the air pump.

All The Party Details

For this party we used the amenities in our building in downtown Vancouver. We had plans to play some party games and let the kids be active. Luckily for us Roowsi had a ball pit and cute little cow hoppers to use for our party.

Roowsi was able to provide us with reusable party decorations like their felt rainbow banners and kid friendly table settings. Even the cake plate and lighter came from Roowsi. We love this local green concept and there was overall less waste to throw out when the party is over.

At the end of the party we packed everything back up into the boxes they came in and left them to be picked up. Items like these fun cow hoppers made the party a very easy experience and helped to pull our party together.

Renting items is great for the environment and also better on the bank account. We personally loved the idea we could rent larger items and not worry about how we were going to store them afterwards.

We love celebrating birthdays over here! Check out some of our other birthday inspired posts.
