Party Supply Invitation DIY

by Joke Vande Gaer

My children and I are party supply hoarders. We just can’t pass on some cute flags, a bag of confetti or, honestly, anything in the party supply isle. For my son’s birthday I thought it would be fun to send some of our favorite party supplies along with an invitation. It sets the mood to party!

Materials: Some pretty boxes, party supplies, confetti & an invitation

Step 1: Fill the box halfway with confetti (it’s an easy way to fill the box without needing too many supplies.)
Step 2: Add the rest of your supplies. If you have the time you could make some of your own party supplies: pinwheelsflagsparty blowers and create a theme.
Step 3: Close the box with some twine and attach the invitation (if your child can already write, it’s extra cute if (s)he writes a personal message.)

I love shopping for party supplies at Hema, but they only ship within Europe. I’d love to hear where you guys like to shop for party supplies!

    I’m trying to find ‘Hema’ online store and can’t seem to find anything. Do you have their website you could share with me :)
    Thank you!
    Your biggest fan!

    Where is the invite? All I see in the decorations? Was the invite mounted on the bottom of the box?

    That’s a neat idea! I definitely think you should make those cute little boxes available if you haven’t yet. They would be great for something like this.
