  2. St. Patrick's Day 2019

    St. Patrick's  Day 2019

    St. Patrick's Day 2019 is fast approaching, here at Party Glitters locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island we came up with a few innovative and creative party ideas for celebrants like you. Check it out and have a blast on that special occasion

    If you plan to host a St. Patrick’s Day party to celebrate, make sure you outfit your walls, doors, tables, and ceiling with lots of St. Patrick Day decorations. For all St. Patrick’s Day 2019 party supplies visit our locations in NYC and Long Island.

    Here are a few decorating tips to help make your party space look fun and festive.

    Think Green: The staple color of St. Patrick’s Day is green. Incorporate this color into all aspects of your decorations to transform your party into an Irish celebration. A simple and easy way to do this is to buy green balloons in a few different shades (you can also mix in orange and white). Bundle the balloons together to create bouquets using green ribbon. Place the green balloon bouquets around your party—tie them to chairs, tables, and anything else you can find!

    Shamrock Idea #1: St. Patty’s Day is all about the luck of the Irish. To play off this idea, use shamrock decorations throughout your party space to add an Irish touch. One creative way to do this is to make shamrock coasters. Use green construction paper to cut out shamrocks large enough for a cup to fit on. Once you’ve cut out your shamrocks, laminate them to make them sturdy and waterproof. Place the shamrock coasters on tabletops throughout the party for your guests to use.

    Shamrock Idea #2: Another creative way to tie shamrocks into your decorations is to make shamrock nametags. To do this, cut shamrock shapes out of green construction paper and print the names of your guests on each one. Next, laminate each shamrock to make it durable. Finally, glue a pin on the back of each nametag so your guests can pin it to their shirt to wear during the party. This idea is particular great if you are hosting a large party to make it easier for everyone to learn each other’s names.

    Centerpiece Idea #1: An essential part of any party is the table décor. For St. Patrick’s Day, try to incorporate Irish inspired decorations and centerpieces to keep with the party theme. Incorporate iconic items such as shamrocks, leprechauns, and pots of gold into your table centerpieces. For example, put together a green bouquets of flowers such as green carnations, ferns, and zinnias. Cut out shamrocks and glue them to dowels that you spray-paint green, then stick them into your flower arrangement.

    Centerpiece Idea #2: Another personal touch that you can add to your table is to make your own “pots of gold”. To do this, buy or make black bowls to act as the pots. For the gold, fill your pots with gold chocolate coins. These gold chocolate coins can be found at most party supply stores or grocery store. Encourage your guests to take home any leftover chocolate coins as a party treat at the end of your St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

    We hope you found our ideas helpful. And don’t forget that for all party supplies, balloons and decorations you can visit any of our locations in Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island.

    Classroom Decorations 2018

    Summer is coming to a close and teachers across the country are gearing up for the school year with lesson planning, supply shopping and classroom decorating. Every teacher wants to decorate their classroom. After all, it’s the space where they spend the majority of their day. Fun décor engages students and makes them excited to be in school and learn. It also gives teachers a break from the monotone cinderblock white walls, gray carpet, and bland drop ceilings often found in public schools. If you’re a teacher and you’re having a hard time getting your classroom game on point, we’ve got you covered. Head to our locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Hauppauge Long Island for classroom decorations and back to school supplies and out these classroom decoration ideas for major inspiration.

    Many secondary teachers feel they must choose between decorations that are juvenile or decorations that are boring. But there is a third option!

    Don’t watch the clock, solve it! Replace hours with math equations on the face of the classroom clock. Perfect for math classrooms, students will have to solve equations to get the time.

    Take it to the ceiling. Have a drop ceiling in your classroom? Decorate ceiling tiles or give your students an assignment requiring them to decorate ceiling tiles. Inspirational quotes, the periodic table, book covers, and constellations are a few ways to add color to your class in an unexpected way.

    Get social. Middle and high school students communicate with each other daily through Tweets, posts, Snaps, and pins. Give your classroom a social media theme, incorporating famous quotes and historical events in a “social” format.

    For all your classroom supplies head to Party Glitters locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Suffolk, Long Island.

    Christmas Party 2016 Decorations

    Here a few tips to make your 2016 Christmas Party truly unforgetable from Party Glitters with locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island.

    A memorable Christmas party does not have to be all red, green and white and not all menus have to involve a roast and holiday cookies. Creativity and thinking outside of the conventional holiday party box will ensure that guests won’t grow tired of the same old thing. Here are some creative tips to ensure that your Christmas party will be the talk of the season.

    You can try an unconventional approach and host a party inspired by the television show “Stranger Things.” Holiday-appropriate Christmas tree lights could be haphazardly wrapped over pieces of furniture or across the living room wall. Create an Eggo waffle bar where guests can add their own toppings. Visit Party Glitters for all necessary party supplies and decorations

    For the traditionalists who still want to maintain the holiday spirit, host a cookie party. Encourage guests to think outside the box and have them whip up a batch of gingersnaps, lady fingers or toffee cookies. For those who enjoy a little friendly competition, turn it into a cookie judging contest with prizes awarded to the "most creative" or the "best traditional cookie."

    For 2016, do away with the red and green and upgrade a holiday cocktail party. Use decorations that only come in white and gold for a decidedly adult soiree.

    In addition, fun Christmas games never go out of style. Pick up a bunch of Christmas Crackers for guests to enjoy. Finally, everyone loves a good White Elephant party. Have guests bring the tackiest gifts they have ever received and have them all exchange tacky presents.

    For all these holiday party supplies and decorations visit our locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Suffolk counties.

    Thanksgiving Party Ideas

    Here are a few tricks and tips from Party Glitters on how to make your 2016 Thankgiving party in Queens, Brooklyn or Long Island a truly unforgetable experience.

    Baked Goods Party

    Not every Thanksgiving party needs to have all of the fixings. If you just want to have a Thanksgiving party with “just baked goods” then go for it. Either you can provide the desserts or you can ask everyone else to participate and bring something. You and your guests will enjoy binge eating on delicious Thanksgiving desserts and not having to stop at one. We feature a great selection of chocolate molds and other baking supplies at our Brooklyn, Queens and Happauge locations.

    Homemade Decorations

    Some of the best parts of hosting Thanksgiving is decorating for the holiday. Consider making your own decorations to sport at this year’s Thanksgiving. You can make homemade name-tags, hang Thanksgiving color-themed streamers, and even make welcome signs for your guests. If you’re not great at homemaking decorations, you could still use various supplies you have around your home. There’s no need to worry about mix-matching because this will make your home look even more fabulous for Thanksgiving. These Thanksgiving Place Holders would be the perfect addition to your homemade decorations. Our stores feature an amazing selection of Thankgiving decorations to make your party a truly unforgetable experience.

    Craft-Giving

    Instead of lounging around all day, consider making Thanksgiving a day in which everyone does crafting together. You can have kids crafts and adult crafts ready to go. Think of how much fun and how many memories your guests will have if you have a craft-giving party. We feature one of the largest collection of crafting supplies in New York.

    Whatever type of Thanksgiving party you choose to have, the options are endless. And always remember, Party Glitters are here to help you have an amazing Thankgiving party.

    Classroom Decorations 2016

    Here are a few tips on hot to decorate your classroom for upcoming Fall 2016.

    Make them. Party Glitters sell special markers that let you draw on windows. Use the die cutter to cut out shapes to spruce up wall displays. Use what you have, what your school provides, and what other teachers are willing to share to make your classroom beautiful.

    Have kids make them. Kids can make posters explaining how to solve math problems, displays of different geometric shapes in the classroom, a ‘quilt’ of their favorite books, etc. Use student work rather than store-bought posters. It’s more meaningful to the kids, and tells visitors more about what’s happening in your classroom. Large paintings done by children always look beautiful, no matter how young the students.

    Focus on useful displays. A pretty poster is just taking up wall space unless it’s helping the kids learn, retain, and utilize their skills. Hang up your text connections poster, tricks for remembering multiplication facts, directions for how to do long division, a calendar with important dates and events for your students clearly marked, the correct friendly letter writing format, and so on. Refer to the posters often and your kids will, too.

    Teacher’s Magazines. Lots of times there are free pull-outs in teacher magazines. If your college or public library subscribes, ask if you can take the posters out.

    Decorate your classroom for Fall 2016! Visit Party Glitters in Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island for greatest selection of classroom party favors and supplies.

    Luau 2016 Party Decorations

    From the moment that guests arrive at your party, they’ll know that they’ve arrived in paradise. Here are some tips on how to make any space look straight out of the tropics:

    • Make a sandcastle centerpiece: purchase textured, sand-colored spray paint at any local hardware store. Spray paint shoe boxes and use them to form the main part of the castle. To construct the towers, glue Styrofoam cones to empty coffee cans, then paint. Other details, such as scallops across the top of the castle, can be cut out of Styrofoam and painted.
    • Visit a local travel agency and ask for old travel posters of Hawaii, the Caribbean, or other tropical destinations, and hang them throughout the party area.
    • Use decorative fringe to give a tropical vibe to tables, doorways, and your deck.
    • If you’re hosting the party outdoors, use play sand to set up a “beach.” You can use a sandbox or, if one isn’t available, spread sand on large trash bags for easy cleanup.
    • Lay out beach towels for the kids to sit on as they eat or play games.
    • Pile seashells and starfish in the corners of the party area and surround them with sand.
    • Set up tiki torches along the driveway or sidewalk leading up to the party location.
    • Hang string decorations from doorways and the ceiling that feature hula girls and brightly colored flowers.
    • Cut large flower shapes out of different colors of construction paper and tape them to the walls and doors.
    • Balloons are a must-have at any party! Combine a luau-themed Mylar balloon with four or five solidly colored latex balloons and secure them with balloon weights throughout the party area. Also, tie balloons to the chair where the birthday child will sit.
    • Cups shaped like pineapples or coconuts are the perfect way to ensure your tableware reflects the party’s theme.
    • Play luau party music in the background. Steel drum bands are a good choice.
    • Create striking photo opps using wall decorating kits that will bring a piece of paradise into your home.
    • Centerpieces with hibiscus flowers will be sure to add a pop of color to any display.
    • Personalized party banners are ideal for adding to the ambiance of your event while sharing special sentiments with the celebrant.

    Visit Party Glitters locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island for best Luau 2016 party decorations.
