Create A Party Pantry

Many of us have gift closets where we buy various gifts ahead and place them on the shelves to be given at upcoming parties and occasions. Several years ago I began what you could call a Party Closet.

I began saving the left over party supplies from my kids birthdays and purchasing supplies ahead of time on clearance. My Party Closet has saved me oodles of money each year as I celebrate my children's birthdays.

* if you don't have closet space you can also use a large storage container with lid that can easily be stored in your garage, bedroom closet shelf etc.

Stock your own Party Closet with:

Curling ribbon
Table cloths - both plastic and cloth
Party confetti
Crepe' paper
Party hats
Party horns
Party CD's
Birthday Flag ( to hang outside your home)
Birthday candles
Stick lighter
Special Birthday plate
Leftover or purchased on sale: Party plates, cups and napkins, Party centerpieces, cake topper decorations.
Generic Party favors: crayons, sidewalk chalk, glow sticks, bubbles, play-doh etc.
Party games: pin the tail supplies, pinate blind fold, scavenger hunt lists etc.

I have a shelf for gifts and another shelf for party supplies. It's nice knowing I have a place to keep things if I find a great deal that I'll use in the future.
