Fall Celebrations 0
As we move into November, there are many opportunities to decorate, celebrate, and enjoy family and friends. My favorite holiday is, of course, Thanksgiving. No gifts. Just family and friends, good food and good times. Sure there may be a hearty debate or a few words minced over the football games, but that's nothing compared to the excitement this country just enjoyed.
For Thanksgiving, you can set your table with fine china and complement the decor with fall holiday designs. Or go completely untraditional with a football themed decor in the family room where everyone goes off to watch the game, enjoying snacks from their football shaped bowls and NFL napkins. Now wouldn't that stir things up just a bit? Me, I'm more of a traditional kind of girl. My party theme will be Thanksgiving from the family room to the dining table, from the kitchen counter snacks to dessert. I like to keep it simple in design and decor. Since we eat in a room with a large bay style window, there will be Thanksgiving decorations on the window and of course, a turkey to greet the guests as they enter. But other than that, for me it's all about the linens and the food. We'll have disposable Thanksgiving napkins and plates for appetizers and desserts.
Whether you're traditional, like to mix things up or are just looking for ways to make the clean up a little easier, the party store has something to help you look your best this Thanksgiving.
Autumn Patterns 0
Fall is here and so are the autumn patterns. There are patterns to our weather in this season that let us sleep soundly with windows open, gently rocked by the cool breezes. And autumn patterns show up ion our drives down Main Street when the fall colors dance overhead. The tree canopy changes in autumn to a true work of art. And autumn patterns show up in our gardens where fall foliage like mums take over the spring and summer blooms. And in the party store, autumn patterns are on the shelves. There are plates and napkins, wreaths and centerpieces in the array of colors we think of as representing fall. We move away from the bright summer shades of pink and yellow or patriotic patterns used for the summer holidays and into the deep reds and orange and brown and yellows that resemble the trees outside. And, then of course, there are the football patterns that we also associate with fall!
By Thanksgiving we in the Midwest may have snow on the ground. It is not unheard of. But on our table will be the autumn patterns - the lush fall colors that make a house feel like a home. The colors make us think of soup on the stove, turkey in the oven, and hot apple cider.
Enjoy autumn and all the autumn patterns because in the blink of an eye it will pass.
Fall Party Supplies 0
The last official day of summer is just around the corner. And with a new season comes new party supplies and different reasons to celebrate. From back-to-school, to the all-time favorite, Halloween, there's specialty classroom decor, Halloween party supplies, costumes and costume accessories and then, of course, Thanksgiving party supplies. For our Jewish friends there are specialty items for Rosh Hashanah and other fall holidays that bring families together.
In both the local party store in Glenview and the online store, there is already more activity as people gear up for these fall events. Costume inventories are updated, store shelves are filled with fewer and fewer summer party supplies (though it is still 90 degrees out there today!), and more and more fall party supplies. The theme of the store moves away from the bright colors of summer and more toward the beauty of fall colors reminiscent of falling leaves.
