Mother’s Day 2010

Mothers are the hardest creatures for which to shop. What gift tells the person that gave you life, or that raised you, “thank you” for doing absolutely everything and more for me?

Flowers? Always a must. They signify life and they make beautiful fresh decorations around the house.

Purses? Yes, we women carry our lives in those pretty bags.

Watches? Of course. How else would they do the million things on their schedule?

What must not be overlooked is a celebration of their hard work. Only a mother can do the motherly things she does without expecting anything in return. Shop our selection of Floral and Spring Party supplies to accent your dinner table because you’re cooking a special dinner for her whether you like it or not. If it’s takeout, make it pretty. No excuses.

Cinco de mayo! Arriba, arriba!

Cinco de mayo marks the date when the Mexican militia was victorious over the French Army at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. This Latin holiday is around the corner and we are thrilled to point everyone in the direction of our new Caliente Party Supplies. Our selection of party decor has expanded beautifully with colorful lanterns, maracas, paper tissue balls and garlands.

Although barbecue season does not typically begin until the end of May, Cinco de mayo is definitely a holiday that is often celebrated by grilling meat and serving traditional dishes. Fiesta themed parties are festive and the perfect excuse to dress up in traditional dress.

Don’t let this holiday pass without sharing a piece of history with your young ones. And again, this is not Mexican Independence Day.

Earth Day 2010

Although April 22 is officially Earth Day, it is important that we do not forget that technically, everyday is Earth Day.

Do your part to pitch in to the global “Go Green” campaign every day. It doesn’t matter if your contribution involves picking up a small wrapper off the floor, ceasing your relationship with aerosol cans or putting together a beach cleaning crew, the main objective is to improve our environment.

You can start with your home or office by switching to our Recycled Guest Hand Towels or any of our environmentally friendly recycled party supplies. Sure, we may not endure any of the harsh climate changes predicted in our future, but our children will.

Story of a Baby Shower

“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall/ All the King’s horses/ And all the King’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.”

Nursery rhymes are probably the most memorable childhood stories and poems. They are the basis of children’s imaginations. Our Nursery Toile Baby Shower design (available in pink or blue) is adorable and perfect for celebrating classic literature. A storybook party theme would be so great. Decorations could include storybook character stand-up posters and vintage storybooks arranged in displays.

Guests can bring books as part of the baby’s gifts. Children cannot get started too early with reading.

Custom Baby Shower Creations

Baby registries are wonderful because you personally get to select about a million gifts that you could actually use and/or want. If your friends are the baby-registry-checking-type, then great! If not, then you probably have an unopened sack of unusable gifts in the corner of the nursery somewhere.

New mothers, but mostly first-time mothers, love unique gifts that they can keep and show their son/daughter down the road when they’re older. If time allows, a gift-making gathering could be fun and memorable for everyone, including the unborn baby (although he/she will have to wait to enjoy the memories in the future). Suggests that your party guests create a handmade gift for the new baby. The creation can be anything from fabric wall hangings, to baby bibs decorated with fabric paint, or knitted squares for a baby blanket or a cloth book.

The possibilities are literally endless. It’s truly the thought that counts.
