Having lived in a close-knit community for over fifteen years I have become involved in many ways in putting together activities for our children and hosting parties and other gatherings for the adults. It is one of the many perks of living where we live; we are more than neighbors, we are friends and we all truly enjoy doing things together and having our children grow up together in an involved, energetic neighborhood. The place that all of our gatherings are held is our community center – a small but intimate building that sits on a lake in our neighborhood and that has hosted everything from weddings to Christmas parties with Santa.
Everything that is planned at the community center is done by those of us who live here on a volunteer basis. We appoint a committee each year that oversees all of the activities and we all make a yearly financial contribution to buy factory direct party supplies, food, entertainment, and other essentials.
This year, as I am on the committee that has been appointed, I have been put in charge of gathering factory direct party supplies. We do have many party supplies – decorations and the like – that we have been able to use year after year but some are looking worn and old and could use some updating. Plus, there are those events that need updated supplies every year and, of course, we need to replenish our plates, napkins, and utensils for our different themed food service.
I decided this year to go online instead of running around from party supply store to party supply store. And I’m glad I did! With just one search I found this amazing website that specializes in factory direct party supplies of every kind. With just a little bit of time and an organized list I was able to get all of our party supplies for the upcoming year and at less than half the price I spent last year.
