6 Sources for Party Planning Inspiration

where to find party supplies
Hooray, it’s Friday! Whether it’s a holiday weekend, a birthday, bachelorette, bridal or baby shower, sometimes life calls for a party. Because these celebrations are on my calendar for the upcoming weeks (and chances are, they are for you, too!), I wanted to share a few of my favorite sources for party planning inspiration and supplies:
— Container Store: The store stocks endless options for gift packaging and creative ways to present treats.
— Waiting on Martha: Online boutique filled with fun supplies, like this cake stand and these pom pom decorations.
— Sugar Paper: Between wrapping paper, place cards, and note sets, Sugar Paper can do no wrong. 
— C.Wonder: I love the brand’s collection of table linens and fun servewear.
— Target: The catch-all source for party basics, like balloons, candles, and gift bags.
— Etsy: A destination to find original handmade items, like this amazing tassel garland.
Are you planning any upcoming parties in the near future? I’d love to hear! Follow along via Pinterest for an extra dose of inspiration. (Recipes as seen above: Chocolate Truffles || Funfetti Cupcakes || Lemonade || Cake)

    I wish we had a Container Store near me (but I'm sure my wallet is relieved that we don't, haha!).

    • haha, yes! I live near a location in Chicago — I cannot stop by The Container Store without picking up at least something! The place is amazing.
