And let the Awards Begin 0

Roll out the red carpet and get ready because this year's Oscars are going to be a spectacular event.  This Sunday most of us will gather in front of the televisions and make our best guess for who will be best actor - will it be Ryan Gosling for La La Land or Denzel for his outstanding role in Fences (I guess I gave away who my choice is).  

Before you and your family and friends gather for the Oscar party, stop by the party store. You will be amazed at all the cleverly designed Oscar party supplies that we have for you.  There literally is a red carpet that you can roll out so that when your guests arrive in style, you are ready for them.  There are trophies and director's cut dinner plates, centerpieces, and popcorn boxes.  Your friends will delight in the Hollywood Star runner across the kitchen floor, or the camera swirls hanging from the ceiling.  

Come on, let's have a real party this Sunday.  But first, stop by the local party store and stock up on all the items that invites your guests into the inner sanctum of the Oscars.

Mardi Gras 0

Carnival, celebration, and good times begin (and end) on Shrove Tuesday.  Here in the United States, many migrate off to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, but around the world the revelry associated with Mardi Gras originate in medieval Europe from the 17th century.  And it is only fitting that the center of celebrations in the U.S. are in Louisianna. It was in 1699 when the French-Canadian explorer Jean Baptiste Le Moyne Sieur de Bienville named a plot of land in what is now Louisianna the Pointe du Mardi Gras. This same explorer later established the place where the first Mardi Gras was celebrated in America’s history.

But enough about history. This is a holiday of parades, carrying on, and parties where the invites encourage guests to arrive with their faces disguised.  The party store has a large selection of masks, half-masks, full masks, some with feathers, some with elegant designs.  Masks and the many Mardi Gras party supplies are easily found throughout the store.  The party store staff do an incredible job of rotating inventory so that any given holiday has its own section and comes front and center at the appropriate time of year.

From our selection of party supplies, you can throw a family-friendly Mardi Gras or something more adult themed.  Stop in today. Remember, we’re open 7-days a week for your convenience.
