This past weekend we hosted Hudson’s 5th birthday party! His birthday was in the middle of December, but since it’s such a crazy time of year we decide it was best to host his party in January. I will have party pics up to share tomorrow, but today I wanted to round up the best stores to buy party supplies! There is so much out there, but these are my favorites that I have ordered from time and time again.
1. Oriental Trading: Mainly known for their little trinkets that are perfect for goody bags they actually also have some cute decor items. These tissue tassel garland are super affordable and come already assembled!
3.Leilani Wholesale: The best site for actual fabric tablecloths, runners and napkins! They are so much cheaper than renting them and much nicer than paper or plastic. I used them recently for my sister’s garden fiesta birthday party.
5. Party City: I like Party City for their selection of solid colored cups, plates and utensils. They also have a cute section with more pinterest worthy party supplies like these adorable tassel party picks!
6.The Wedding Outlet: The best source for candy displays. I use to love a good candy buffet, because it looked so pretty, but it’s so wasteful. I have done them for a lot of parties and you need to buy a lot of candy to make everything full and pretty and then even with everyone taking some home you are left with a lot of extras. I’m all about candy dishes now. I love the letter ones where you can spell out the guest of honor’s name. You still get a dose of candy that guests can snack on during dessert time, but it’s more manageable and people love the dishes. I always get compliments on them.
8.Target: Great selection of solid colored paper goods, but they also have adorable collections like these multi-colored stripe party hats, which I would actually use as decor, because I know my kids would never let me put them on them! Also love their selection of pinatas.
9. Etsy: Literally has everything you could imagine and then some. I like things a very specific way so, etsy is amazing for me. I always ask to get whatever I’m ordering tweaked and customized. I’m sure etsy shop owners love me. 🙂 One of my recent etsy finds is La Pinata Party! Who wouldn’t want a gold sparkly pinata complete with some floral zhushing. So cute!
Happy Party Planning!
