Party Planning for Success 0

Party planning is an essential part of making a day a tremendous success. I usually start with a list.  Menu items first, grocery items second, and then what party decorations, tableware, service ware, etc is needed.  

The last party I hosted, I held a late afternoon / early dinner party that I billed as offering simple fare.  Guests contributed side dishes and I took care of meats and drinks.  Sounds simple enough, but it turns out that even if all you are doing is putting meats on a tray, you have to plan and you need party supplies

For example, once I realized that everyone invited planned to attend, I also realized that I did not have sufficient cutlery or a complete set of dishes to serve that number of people. So, I stopped at the party store near me, strolled the aisles for party decor.  I started in the solids, thinking that it would be best to pick up solid color plates and napkins rather than themed-party supplies. That way I could use them again throughout the summer. But once I strolled around the party store, I couldn't help myself. There were so many party decorations and designs that I just had to have. And soon my basket was filled with a tablecloth and matching beverage napkins for the table where drinks were to be set up, a set of dinner napkins, large dinner plates, the cool plastic ware that looks like real cutlery. As I started toward the checkout, I spotted the cups that matched the plates. So, of course, I had to have them. Then I picked up some small bowls for the dips. They're plastic, but not quite disposable - if you know what I mean.  

The event was for mother's day, so I counted out all the moms who were to be in attendance and headed over to the greeting card section, selecting special cards for each of my family and friends who were attending. I was starting to worry that I would overspend, but when all was said and done, I was very pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was to make the party easy on myself by lightening the cleaning load with paper plates, disposable napkins and cups. Best of all, when the party was set up and waiting for guests to arrive, I looked around and was very pleased at how everything looked.

So plan my friends. And when you do, put our party store on your list as the place to stop for all you need.

Spring Celebrations 0

I generally like to shop online, but when I shop in at the party store near me, it is always a pleasant surprise to find so many new items for the holidays or celebrations that are just around the corner.  May has a plethora of opportunities for parties, decorating, and presenting balloon bouquets. 

From Cinco de Mayo to Memorial Day, I count six events to celebrate, and that doesn't even account for the baby showers and bridal showers and bachelorette parties! Cinco de Mayo and Derby Day just passed, and this coming week is National Teacher Week when many families and schools will set up a beautifully decorated table to #ThankATeacher.  In our store, graduation party supplies are tailored so families have access to the colors representing our local schools and include some specialty items (napkins and balloons) with school logos. Those planning a brunch or luncheon can find either Mother's Day party supplies or an array of patterned party supplies that are sure to brighten up the table and make serving and clean up an easy task. And while the newest designs are just starting to come in, soon the Patriotic party supplies will be an easy find throughout the store just in time to plan for Memorial Day!  

So party on, patrons. Party on!  And be sure to stop in and check out the newest patterns as you prepare for your May celebrations.  We love our customers!
