With the upcoming events and holidays, Super Bowl, Valentines Day, Mardi Gras, and St Patricks Day one way to save on party supplies is to check out the dollar stores. Most dollar stores have plates, napkins, cups and utensils in a variety of colors and themes. They also have themed items for kids birthday parties. Dollar stores are also a great place to buy helium mylar balloons. Many have them for $1 and the ones I have received have stayed inflated for about a month.
And if you are planning ahead some other ideas are for graduation parties and other ocassions.
Many dollar stores also have items for favors and treat bags.
So if you are planning a party, consider checking out the dollar stores to save some money.
