Party Supplies Do’s and Don’ts

stylish posh party products

It takes a bit of effort to plan an amazing party or event, but there’s a trick to pulling off an unforgettable party. The secret to party planning lies in preparation, and these easy to follow Do’s and Don’ts will ensure you pull off the best party or event ever.


Keep your theme in mind when buying party supplies.

Are you planning a birthday bash or a black tie event? There’s a big difference in the type of party supplies you’ll need depending on the type of event you are hosting. Start by checking for any supplies you may already have from previous parties, such as lights or other decorations. If you are buying everything new, look out for items that can be reused for other events to save money.

Consider the number of guests invited and their ages.

There’s nothing worse than not having enough food, drinkware or even seating for your guests. Keep your guest list in mind and always allow extra for surprise visitors. Younger guests won’t eat the same foods and drinks as adults will, so you need to bear this in mind when planning a menu. It’s typically easier to decorate a party for a younger group, too, so remember this when shopping for party decorations for the big day.

Shop online.

Buying your party supplies online saves you time and money. You can skip the hassle of driving all over town to get the things you need, and typically have a much better selection of party items to choose from. Online shopping is safe, secure and can be done any time, day or night, so even if you have a busy work schedule you can still plan an unforgettable party. Another benefit of shopping online is the fact that you won’t have to carry bags full of heavy party decorations around with you; they’ll be delivered right to your front door.

Keep safety first.

When hanging party decorations and putting out the food, remember to keep safety a priority.  Keep candles in paper lanterns and other decorations away from children or anything that could catch fire. If you are using party lights that plug into electrical outlets make sure to keep any loose cords secure and away from walkways.

Food safety is also important. Make sure to keep your foods and beverages at the right temperatures to keep them from spoiling or just tasting bad. Keep drinks in coolers on ice and remember to have plenty of extra ice for drinks. A portable ice machine is perfect for helping make sure everyone has a cold beverage at your hot party!


Don’t leave it until the last minute.

Trying to organize an awesome party at the last minute will only result in disaster and stress for you. Order your party supplies and party decorations well ahead of time so that you can be sure that you have everything you need when the big day arrives. The only exception to this rule is the food; buy your food and drinks one or two days prior to the party and cook on the day of the event. This ensures that everything will taste fresh and reduce the likelihood of food contamination.

Don’t skimp on quality.

While you don’t have to spend a fortune on party items, you should not buy cheaply made goods in order to save money. Cheaply made decorations and lights not only look bad but they could fall apart, becoming useless and a waste of money. It’s better to spend a little more on items you can be proud to use at your party than to save a few dollars on useless junk.

When you buy from Party Supplies Now, you don’t have to choose between a low price and high quality, because we offer both! Many of our products are exclusive and unique, and we offer an amazing 365 day easy return if you aren’t happy with the product. Why shop anywhere else?

Don’t forget the little extras.

Whether you are hosting a children’s birthday party or an anniversary party, it’s the little extras that your guests will remember. Items like party bags filled with goodies for the kids and table decorations for each table really make the difference between an okay party and an excellent one. Gifts and novelties given to your guests don’t have to be expensive to be good.

If you’d rather skip the gifts for guests, you can still make the event stand out in their minds by creating the best atmosphere possible. Use your party lighting, music and decorations to make an environment that is completely conducive to having a great time! Fun and flashy drinkware, tableware and foods are all small details that make a big impact, so get creative and have fun with it.

Don’t stress out over the planning.

Parties are meant to be fun, for both you and your guests. If you stress yourself out over the planning too much you won’t be able to enjoy yourself at the actual event. Buying your party supplies online, planning ahead, and delegating small tasks to family and friends will help you avoid party planning burnout. Remember, a party doesn’t have to be perfect to be fun, and your guests are not going to care or even notice if everything isn’t exactly as you pictured it in your mind while planning.

Everything doesn’t have to be perfect, but by planning ahead you can help avoid any major problems that could arise. This will help you feel less stressed and better able to handle any mishaps that could occur. Try to relax and have a good time. You’ve earned it after planning such a great party!

One final ‘Do’ for your list is this: do remember to have a great time at your party. And do visit Party Supplies Now to find everything you need in one great place. We’ll help you host your party with less stress, for less money and with awesome products you won’t find anywhere else.
