Are you stuck thinking about where to get awesome party decor supplies? Come on in, shop online and check out our featured products! Party decorations usually depend on the theme of the party. A Hollywood party, for example, may use black and gold balloons, cinematic pieces, a red carpet or the Hollywood sign, while a wedding reception overflows with white and whatever the color of the wedding may be. Many party decoration shops, local and online, offer a variety of party decoration supplies, divided according to themes and colors. For the most part, however, the list of generic party supplies may include the following:
wall decorations/cut outs
partyware (plates, cups, cutlery, napkins, tablecloth, etc.)
food (cake, drinks and ice, snacks., etc.)
activity/game items and prizes
tables and chairs
As a typical example, a dinner party is a social gathering at which people eat dinner together, usually in the host’s home. At the most formal dinner parties, the dinner is served on a dining table with place settings. Dinner parties are often preceded by a cocktail hour in a living room or bar, where guests drink cocktails while mingling and conversing. Wine is usually served throughout the meal, often with a different wine accompanying each course.
At less formal dinner parties, a buffet is provided. Guests choose food from the buffet and eat while standing up and conversing. Women guests may wear cocktail dresses; men may wear blazers.
A surprise party is a party that is not made known beforehand to the person in whose honor it is being held. Very hard to organize and pull off – but well worth the effort.
At some informal dinner parties, the host may ask guests to bring food or beverages (a main dish, a side dish, a dessert, or appetizers). A party of this type is called a potluck or potluck dinner. In the United States, potlucks are very often held in churches and community centers.
