Party Package from Birthday Express.com Review

I know this picture isn't the best with my little bitty camera but at least I hope you can see all the items that came with my Party Supply Package that is called the Red and Light Pink Deluxe Party Pack for 24 people! I will show you some of the items by themselves so you will get a better idea of what all came with the package and how they looked.

Because I had to get this review done before Valentine's Day, I unfortunately, won't be able to show you us using them but believe you me, we will because it's not just Valentine's Day for us, it is also our Anniversary. We got married on the 13th so we do a double celebration so my package will see some serious eating!

Here is what is in my Deluxe Package:
Includes 24 round dinner plates, round dessert plates, paper cups, forks, spoons, knives, lunch napkins (50 pack), beverage napkins (50 pack), 54" x 108" plastic tablecover, 12 latex balloons, 2 crepe paper and 2 curling ribbon.
I may actually save the tablecloth for Christmas because we are always running short of those around that time of year! Don't know why but for some reason it always gets overlooked and we end up eating without one and what a mess those kids can make!

And I am talking grown kids, not little kids. And then they have the nerve to just get up and go into the living room without asking if I need help putting everything up! They do put their dishes and glasses in the dishwasher but that is about it!

Anyway, I really do love the vast array of different themes and they even have them divided up between girl and boy themes, holiday themes and even a 1st Birthday Package. I guess that first year is special and it needs to have the right accessories! But, seriously, you won't find a bigger party package supply store online that can offer as much as Birthday Express can!

Here's a look at what some of the items look like up close:

I can tell you that those napkins are very thick and not cheap at all! And the plates are very sturdy and not a bit wobbly! That is one thing I cannot stand is to go somewhere and you can't put much on your plate because it is so thin it will fold in two and dump all your food on the ground if they are too flimsy! So, I do appreciate a good sturdy plate with nice thick napkins to take care of any spills or accidents that might happen.

As you can see, they are also very generous with the streamers, ribbons and balloons. Now, if you need a tad more than what is in their packages, you can get extras so don't worry about not having enough to go around. You can add pieces to your set in however many as you want. I don't think you will need extras with the silverware though unless you have a really huge family! They sent me enough to do 2 parties, because we like ours small and simple versus big and rowdy.

I know that this picture gives you another look at the streamers and balloons but I wanted you to see the forks, knives and spoons also. I am actually mulling over washing them in the sink (don't put in dishwasher) so that I can use them one more time before I throw them away. Of course, none of the other stuff can be salvaged but the silverware definitely can. I try to do my part in the "Green" thing since that is coming up soon in April.

Oh, here are a few idea's for the boys too. My grandson loves Dinosaurs:

And then there is this one, called Angry Birds and I must have missed something because I don't have a clue what Angry Birds are?

Oh, the most important thing that they also have is the party invitations and the Thank You notes for sending out when you received instead of gave! They will even personalize them for you, so see, you can get everything all in one place without having to drive to one of the party supply stores in your area. They also have coupons you can use if you sign up for their newsletter! You can also request a catalog.  Oh, and orders over $75 gives you free shipping.

We don't have one and I would have to drive about 30 miles to get to one, so for me, this is perfect. I have gotten to where I hate to drive anywhere these days. Much quicker for these type of things to order online. I can't do that with clothes or shoes because they never fit but I do shop online for other things such as this.
