Easy Parties, Gifts, Wrapping and More, Get All The Supplies At One Place!

Hi there, I was lucky to receive an invite to review Birthday Express Products, what perfect timing with the Holiday Season upon us. Yes it’s not just for birthdays since they have all the supplies gathered for you, from plates to plastic-ware, to tablecloths (nice plastic ones to protect that table, especially if you have little children around this really come in handy to protect the finish of your table from accidental spills etc.

I noted that, of course, they also have some great birthday theme packages too, from A to Z you are sure to find a theme all ready for you on their website, how about a Superhero’s Party or a Barbie Party (found under “Princess & Dolls”) all coordinated nicely for everything from parties for the kids on up to parties for the Grown ups.

Looking around this site I can see how easy this can make to decorate a themed party, add in all the decorations, have gifts for the party goers, a special something for the guest of honor and more.

I ended up choosing the Red and Green Deluxe Party Pack for 24. When my box full of Party Supplies arrived, I received:

Mariahs Unopened Box from Birthday ExpressIn Red:

24 – Large Paper Cups, 1- Large (54 x 108) Plastic Table Cloth, 24- Large Napkins, 24- 8 3/4 inch Large Paper Plates, 81 foot- roll of Crepe-paper Streamer (bleed, fade and flame resistant), 6 – 11 inch balloons, 50 ft.- Red Curling Ribbon.

In Green:

24 – 6 7/8 inch (dessert/hours-devour sized) Paper Plates, 50- small (dessert/hours-devour sized) napkins, 24- plastic (of each) forks, knives and spoons, 6- 11 inch balloons, 50 foot of Curling Ribbon, a 81 foot- roll of Crepe-paper Streamer (bleed, fade and flame resistant).

I also found two little bonuses in my box (I am not sure if this is common with their shipments) – a travel size tube of Tom’s Children’s toothpaste in Silly Strawberry and a coupon for the product. I will have to give it to my brother at our Christmas Gathering, for his small children… I don’t think I will use it myself, I like my minty freshness personally. lol

Why did I choose the Red and Green Party kit? First off, who wants to mess with doing dishes when you have company over, we have a large family with 6 siblings and all their families, and we are spread all over the United States currently with just my youngest brother and I close by my parents. I know how special it is when we have a year that we can all get together to celebrate the holidays, and I love to take these precious moments and squeeze out all I can of the enjoyment and visiting with them. And as far as the green and red can go… since I just discovered that this year it maybe a small gathering again, will be saving all the extra place settings, as well as the crepe-paper rolls and balloons for Valentines Day and St. Patrick’s Day decorating. This is such a versatile package when you consider the 3 holidays you could use this for. With the price limit of $35 the price is certainly right for getting all the supplies in one box with this Party Pack too.

Barbie Doll Theme Party Supply Kit Called "Barbie All Dolld Up" Party Supplies kitSpeaking of the Holidays, I saw that they have stocking stuffers on their site too, what fun and easy as they list them by prices, these are great gifts for children… or those that are kids at heart like me. Hey who’s going to pick me up some of these great stocking stuffers?

Under $5: I’d flip for the Monster High 10 color pen ($1.49), I don’t care about the Monsters, but I admit that I wanted one of those multi colored pens that I saw friends with way back in Elementary School.

Under $10: Oh yes, a Boa, what can I say? You never know, I may wear it (but I wouldn’t admit it). Truly though, I wanted one for over my makeup mirror, for when I get my “dressing room” all fixed up… hey what can I say? It’s only $6.99

for others, I also spotted a few key-chains under this heading on clearance that has some teams on it, I didn’t see one remaining for Wisconsin on my quick scan or I would have had to have it for my Father and some Cousins that have moved here from our home state of Wisconsin. Yes I was born a cheese head.

Under $20: For outdoor parties in the spring/summer and fall, how about Round Lanterns with White Hibiscus Light Set $19.99, these could help add some light around the grill or fire pit.

For others, a Wisconsin Badgers Window/Garden Flag for my Father, and cousins ($12.99)… there are quite a few different teams flags like this folks, great stocking stuffers or an add on gift for a sports lover.

Under $40: Okay so I didn’t find anything that I would like under this list, but there are more Team Flags ($32.99) under this heading for the sports lovers and goodness if I were a child again I’d go nuts over some of the kids shoes in here… how fun!

My mind still whirls with how very many ideas there are here for parties (and not just for children) in here: I can see possibly getting together with friends for The Academy Awards night and setting up a Movie Night with all the goodies they sell under the category Hollywood & Movie Night or for that matter gathering up some of these supplies and adding in some girly girl supplies, then make sure the guys all go play poker or something while we gals gather around watching Chick Flicks together. Or how about a Spa Party Gals? for that I would choose the Diva Zebra Print Deluxe Party Pack for 8 and have a girls night in, doing each others nails and facials? Why not!

Need invitations too? Yup, they have those on their site as well! You literally can get all the of supplies you’d need in one place at BirthdayExpress.com.

With busy lives out there I am sure you appreciate making every moment count, let Birthday Express help you, just order one of these party packs & other supplies here and you can cross these things off your list for the party.

Thank you Birthday Express for asking me to review your products, I may not be using my Red and Green Deluxe Party Pack as I had first intended, but I have more holidays coming up that this will be pure perfection for.
