Holiday Shopping – How to Avoid Queuing

Yes! The holiday season gives our wallets a lot of stress and consumes a lot of time from our agendas, considering we are all out there trying to get away with buying our presents for Christmas.

But nowadays, thanks to an internet connection, wherever you are and without caring what time it is, you can always shop for your party goods (yes! There’s a life outside Facebook my friends!)… Have you considered shopping for your Christmas decorations & fancy dress online?

Even though almost every business in the UK has a web shop available, it’s still true that a lot of people still don’t trust this way of purchasing items, say because they are not comfortable with it, because they prefer to see the things before buying them, etc. That’s why our doors are always open to visit us at our different retail branches.

Party Superstores has an online web shop too. It’s not the a selection of what you will find if you visit our stores. We just hand picked the best selling items and hang them to the cyberspace so you can also buy from us without moving from your own home.

It’s Christmas Time!

merry-christmas

You might not believe it yet, but tomorrow December is going to start with no mercy: Lots of gatherings, new year’s eve drinks with co-workers, lunch with friends and dinner with family.

It’s that time of the year where we start looking for good and well priced party decorations such as xmas trees, lights, bunting, outfits and accessories, and other more. Where are all these things during the rest of the year? They seem to hide and then pop up slowly until they invade every shop window.

Sure, you can find all these at your local department store, but buying from a party shop makes it all different. Since party good suppliers live for this moments they make sure they have it all, better and cheaper. So why spend more when you can still make it under a budget?

Seasonal Products that we have in stores:

– Fancy Dress: Father Christmas for Ladies, Mens & Children . Elves, Trees, Puddings, Angels, Reindeers, Kings, and lots more of related themed costumes.

– Accessories: Wigs & Masks, Hats, Bells, Antlers, Noses, Gloves, Boppers, Angel Wings, Lights…

– Party Makeup (Face & Body Paint)

– General flags & Bunting

– Disposable tableware (for an easy after party cleaning!)

Top tips to choose your Costume

Don’t just follow the crowd or trends, follow this little tricks and you’ll be the coolest guest at any fancy dress party, no matter what your outfit is!

 

1. Be true. Always try to keep it to your personal preference, nothing more awkward than being dressed up as something/someone you are not that into or you just don’t feel comfortable with. If you don’t like Lady Gaga, don’t just go for it because you know it’s trendy. Be unique and I bet you’ll be more spectacular than the trendiest costume out there.choose-your-fancy-dress

2.Body Image / Self Love. Don’t choose costumes that expose more than what you actually want to show. Trust me on this. Having fun is all that matters, and if you are going to spend 88% of the time thinking and being worried about “how you look”, it’s pointless. On the same train of thought, don’t skip choosing the “fever” sexy collection if that’s what you want. But again, if you know you are self conscious about any part of your body (you shouldn’t anyway!) don’t expect it to go away miraculously that night. The least you want is again, to be pushed backwards by your fancy dress instead forward to a great party!

3.Choose Wisely. Find out what are the absolute must haves and what accessories/ props can be left behind. If you over accessorize or carry something on your hand because it’s “part of your character” you might as well make sure it is necessary for your fancy dress. If you learn you can do without, then skip it, you don’t want to be carrying a fake gun or whatever while you dance! And the same applies to accessories, you don’t want to look cluttered, a good fancy dress looks neat, good and easy to recognize!
