Party Supplies - Quality, top customer service, fast turn-around, good prices, and beautiful packaging.

Welcome to Party Surprise!
Update 4/6/2017
What an experience this has been! We've been open now a little over three years and have more than 13,000 sales! I've learned so much during this time - and love being an etsy shop owner!!!!
What started as a small shop with just mini popcorn boxes, has now expanded to include a wide variety of party supplies. Starting with balloons - I've learned SO much about balloons - the enormous variety they are available in, so many occasions that they are used, how to put together fun packages, and how to check the quality. I'm also designing my own exclusive private line of latex balloons - check out my Little Miss or Little Mister 36" gender reveal balloon, and there are more on the way soon!

Fancy straws are favorites also! I just love how sturdy these are, they actually don't get soggy for nearly 24 hours! Not the paper straws that I grew up with! All sorts of colors and patterns - they are sure to bring the extra "ooooohhhh" to your party decor.
Cupcake and cake toppers - too adorable! Many are my exclusive private line, which I've designed.
Cupcake wrappers, silky and sparkly favor/gift bags, tissue tassel garlands & balloon tails, custom wedding confetti wands, simply gorgeous paper gift bags with matching stunning tissue paper and bows - I just love love love all these unique and beautiful decorations, and you will, too!

I've added some part time assistants to help package orders, help with crafting, keep track of inventory, organize, and help me keep my head on straight, with all that is going on. It's wonderful to employ these senior women, who come from such interesting backgrounds - and they love working here!

Best of all are the interactions with so many lovely customers who are thrilled with their purchases. I especially love when they take time to post a photo with a great review.
Here's looking forward to seeing what interesting new items I'll be adding, and continuing this journey - cheers!

As a new empty-nester, I'm striving to move on with my life and have decided to try something different. No more office work for me, which I did when my kids were young, and no more running to client's houses to train their dogs, other than to just help friends out when they need me. My husband is a clergy and a volunteer chaplain with the police department, so as we are anticipating retirement without pension (scary!), bringing in some extra income seemed logical.

Searching for what to sell, my friend said, "how about popcorn boxes?" I stumbled a bit, and then thought about it a while. "Why not?", I asked myself, "I'll be selling something that will be used for parties, something that people are looking to buy and have fun with, and it's healthy, too! That's what I want - to help people have fun in their lives." I love helping brides and moms plan their parties - such happy people!! Then I decided that encompassing balloons and straws, along with gift boxes, bags, and decorations, would enhance the popcorn boxes. It's been a fun challenge, I'm so happy to be part of Etsy.

I hope you'll give my shop a look, and let me know if there is anything special you would like to have for your party, movie night, fundraiser, engagement/bridal/baby shower, groom's party, wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, carnival, fair, bowling party, pet's party, book club, and church/synagogue/school events.
Give me the chance to have fun with you!

Shipping is by USPS First class and Priority. Options are for standard and priority shipping, RUSH Priority, and EXPRESS shipping. If these options are not listed on your item, please contact me before purchasing to have it added, if you so wish.
SHIPPING DETAILS (yes, boring, but necessary):
I highly recommend adding insurance for loss and damage by USPS at this link, it is only $0.99, if you are shipping by standard (& free) shipping.

Standard shipping usually takes 2-6 business days once shipped, does not include insurance for loss or damage, or guarantee of date of delivery.
Priority shipping usually take 2-4 business days once shipped, includes insurance for loss or damage, does not guarantee date of delivery.
RUSH Priority shipping puts you at the top of the orders list, and ships by Priority mail as described above.
Express Priority shipping usually will take 1-3 days once shipped, includes RUSH which puts your order at the top of the orders list, and also includes insurance and guaranteed date of delivery by USPS.

If order is delayed by USPS, please contact Party Surprise, however the date of delivery is not guaranteed by Party Surprise, only the date of shipping. Returning packages must be discussed first with Party Surprise, package must be UNopened, returned within seven business days. Once package is received by Party Surprise and is found to be in original condition, a refund will be issued less 20% restocking fee and less shipping charge. Custom orders are not returnable; all balloons are not returnable if package has been opened.

Most orders ship within 1-3 business days, please add this time on to your shipping time.

Holiday specific items orders are not returnable.
Regardless if you purchase insurance with or without Priority shipping, seller is NOT responsible for any delays, damages or lost packages incurred by the USPS. I cannot be held responsible for items once it has gone to the USPS, that is where insurance comes in, which is your option when purchasing. If your order has been lost, damaged, or delayed by USPS, you will need to file a claim with the USPS. Tracking numbers are provided on all purchases, including non-priority shipping upgrades. Tracking numbers will be sent as soon as your package ships.
If your order arrives but it is after the date of your event, you may return it (not applicable for custom orders) if you check with Party Surprise first, and only if the order has not been opened. (This does not apply to non-returnable custom items, or non-returnable holiday specific items). However, there will be a 20% restocking fee, and shipping costs will not be refunded. Again, Party Surprise is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or delayed items due to USPS, please consider taking our insurance when ordering, it is very low cost.
If your order was sent to the address that is on your order, and then you contact me to say it was sent to an old address, it is not my responsibility to track it once USPS shows it was delivered.

** FREE Shipping - all orders that have shipped with Free Shipping are NOT refundable.
If your order qualifies for free shipping and weighs over one pound, it may be shipped using Ground USPS, which usually will take 7-11 business days from date of shipping to date of delivery. If you want to increase chances that your package arrives within 2-3 days of shipping, please select Priority, RUSH Priority (which puts your order at the top of the orders list), or Express Priority shipping.
