August - 31 Days of Summer Partying
August. How did it get to be August already? I feel like summer just started. But then I hear "August," and my brain screams back to school." I'm not ready for that. We still have a full month of SUMMER before Labor Day and I'm gonna party like it's 1999. I'm gonna turn up the music, put on my dancing shoes, get out the music themed party supplies - oh yes there is such a thing - and celebrate summer, because there just isn't anything that can beat the heat like inviting your friends over for a summer party.
Some of our friends live in complexes with swimming pool areas and enjoy a beat-the-heat relaxing night out. We, on the other hand, have only a well-shaded yard that has just enough privacy to allow for a good time any time. All we need is a few well-positioned party supplies to brighten up the decor, a little music, some of the season's freshes fruits and veggies and we're ready for fun!
We're not ready to set the table with Patriotic party supplies for Labor Day. We still want to savor the sweet sunshine of summer. We want to sit and warm our faces in the sun. We want to cook outdoors and stay out until it's time to turn on the outdoor lights. And we know a quick trip to the party store can add class and charm to any event. That's why it's good to know that Card & Party Giant, the local family-owned party store in Glenview is open 7 days a week for community customers and has an online presence for those who shop from afar.
Happy Summer. It ain't over yet!
