Turn Bargain Basics into Cheerful Party Supplies
Source: Martha Stewart Living, January 2011
We love turning bargain basics and cheerful party supplies into fun decorations. The materials aren't hard to come by -- you'll find them at party stores, discount stores, and even office-supply stores. Here are some of our favorite sources.
For scrapbook paper, rubber stamps, craft punches, and lots of other goodies, visit this crafts emporium.
All the gift packaging you could ever want, and at great prices.
Its arts and crafts, party supplies, small toys, and seasonal novelties are an excellent value.
Find a rainbow of celebration essentials -- many of the party blowers, streamers, paper tableware, and balloons shown are from here.
This Chinese American department store in New York City also offers charming products online. Look for garlands, parasols, ornaments, and more.
