Decorate for a Beautiful Mother’s Day Party


personalized-topiary-standeeLine your walkway with fresh potted bedding flowers to celebrate the return of spring and give your mother’s a nice trail to browse on their way to this event.

Create a lovely welcoming scene with our Spring Flowers Arch & Columns at your entrance.

Always include a lot of spring bulbs in your decorating, particularly on a buffet table – bright yellow daffodils and pink tulips are some favorites!

Compliment the real flowers by adding some of our Springtime Fun Tulips, Two-Sided Flower Cutouts and our Spring Flower Standees on your stage or head table.

Gossamer  is an extremely light, non-woven “fabric” that is used to create wonderful ceilings and walls, to create gorgeous bows, and to wrap with. Gossamer drapes and swags beautifully, and is a decorating must-have for creating a number of different stunning looks. We carry gossamer in a wide array of colors, patterns, and metallics, and in widths and lengths to suit any party decorating need!

Hang a few Spring Flower Hanging Decorations from your ceilings and across your doorways.

Add some Spring Flower Standees for a vibrant focal point.

Never underestimate the power of decorating with balloons, as they can transform any room into a cozy and festive space in minutes at a very low cost. We offer a wide variety of high quality latex and Mylar balloons in all shapes, sizes, patterns, and colors.

Table Decorations and Napkins:

Cover your tables with pink, yellow, or blue tablecovers. Consider using an alternative to your fine china this holiday and make it easy on yourself with our Tableware. Since the plates are only 7″, create the “charger plate” look by layering them on solid pink or blue plasticware!

For a different look, use Spring Flower Cut-Outs as placemats.

Gather fresh spring  flowers and some trailing ivy for your centerpieces.  Add some shine and sparkle by scattering our Gemstones across your table.

Offer Personalized Napkins that complement your theme. We offer a large selection of dinner, luncheon and beverage napkins in an impressive palette of 20 colors. We also offer a wide range of ink colors, as well as a metallic foil, holographic foil, prismatic foil or a traditional ink imprint.

Napkins can be laid out on a buffet table, or can be displayed at each place setting. Place napkins in the center of each place setting at an angle, or unfold them and place them in glasses for a tall dramatic look. The napkins can also be tied (and bundled with plastic cutlery) with a multitude of items to match your theme. Try curling ribbon, gossamer streamers, ric-rac or ribbon. You can imprint your napkins with a special design from our selection or, for an additional charge, you can send us your own special design

Essential Summer Wedding Decorations


calla-lilly-mini-wedding-pailsSummer is a popular time to get married! The beautiful weather makes for beautiful ceremonies and ShindigZ has plenty of wedding decorations, banners, invitations, and favors to help your summer wedding be the day you’ve been dreaming of. There are a few items, however, that we especially recommend for getting married in the summer season!

Gossamer decorating material is always a great decorating basic, but in the summer it’s especially nice because of its light, airy texture and versatility. We have gossamer available in a huge variety of colors and patters. Use it to cover your tables, create bows, swags, curtains or walkways. Check out our Gossamer TipZ for ideas and how-tos.

If you’re having the wedding outdoors, you’ll definitely want a canopy for keeping guests cool and shaded. Plus, it could be a real party-saver if a storm suddenly crops up. Our Easy-Up Canopy is an inexpensive and easy alternative to renting a canopy. It’s a summer wedding essential for sure!

Nothing adds beauty to a summer wedding like the right lighting. Add some simple, elegant lights to your reception with star luminaries and lighted paper lanters. They add just the right glow to your wedding.

Create a lovely entrance to your reception or a place for guests to take photos with our Garden Photo Setting Kit, featuring a beautiful metal gate which stands 7 feet tall and is accented with wisteria garland. Add an Antique Street Lamp for an extra special touch.

Add a summer touch to your whole event with our Seaside Jewels wedding line, with items such as a guest book, resin pen set,  champagne flutes, cake topper and more. The set features soft blue and white colors and a lovely sea shell theme.

The Calla Lilly Mini Pails. The stunning little pails feature molded calla lilies and are perfect for filling with candy or other small favors. They make a beautiful summery accent to your reception tables too.

Patriotic Fun for a Memorial Day BBQ


BBQ-Kit-N-KaboodleMemorial Day is the kick off of summer and a perfect reason to party! This year Memorial Day is May 25th. Celebrate with your friends and family with a Memorial Day barbeque with a patriotic flair.

Invite guests to the party with the festive invitations from the BBQ Party Tableware Ensemble. It features a cow dressed up as a BBQ chef and space for you to write in your own party details. Plus, it matches the plates, cups and two sizes of napkins included in the ensemble, perfect for serving all your Memorial Day grilling.

Welcome guests to your party with a personalized BBQ Memories Custom Banner or a Festive Flag Custom Banner. These banners can be personalized with your own wording and are made of heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl with or without metal grommets and come in seven different sizes to fit you decorating needs.

Decorate for your party with festive patriotic decorations—streamers, garland, cutouts, and flags! (Check out our Patriotic Party TipZ for tons of ideas). Create a fantastic focal point with a Statue of Liberty and Uncle Sam standees. Large USA Patriotic Letters are also a fun way to spruce up your party room. For tons of fun, set up an Americana Photo Op Stand In. Guests can put their faces in the cutouts and take their picture like the famous American Gothic painting. It makes for fantastic keepsakes from the party.

Party wearables are a great way to brighten up the party and get guests in the fun-loving mood. For the patriotic, try American flag funtoos temporary tattoos, patriotic buttons and red white and blue star beads. Guests will crack up if you greet them at the door in a hamburger hat or giant chef hat.

Wearables make great favors but there’s other favors you can send guests home with so they’ll remember the fun of Memorial Day long after your party is over. For the BBQ theme, we suggest Beer Mug Candles or make-your-own aprons. For a more patriotic bent, try a jewel flag dog tag neckelace craft kit, patriotic bubbles, flag pins or patriotic votive candles.

Check out our Patriotic Party TipZ or BBQ Party TipZ for tons of ideas and have a Happy Memorial Day!

Cover your tables with bright colored plastic tablecovers or red gingham checked tablecovers. The tablecovers are reusable and perfect for taking outdoors. You can even spread them out to have a picnic!

Add a decoration to your tables with a summery centerpiece. Our Glimmering Elegance Parasol Centerpiece is a lovely accent perfect for summer tea parties or reunions. For a barbeque try Tabletop Tiki Lights or Metallic Palm Tree Centerpiece.

If you’re having a buffet, our Sweet Station Centerpiece makes a great focal point of the table. The Sweet Station makes a lovely decorative piece out of your desserts by displaying them in tiers. It’s decorative and functional!

Save yourself from clean up by using paper or plastic tableware for your cookout food. ShindigZ has a huge selection of party tableware to choose from. Keep it basic by coordinating your favorite colors of plastic tableware or select one of our summer themed tableware ensembles. The BBQ Party Ensemble features a black and red BBQ pattern with flames for a masculine look while the Fun in the Sun Ensemble has bright colors and a cute pool party print. Each ensemble includes cups, plates, napkins, and cutlery and has coordinating decorations too!

Serve fruit or veggies and dip in summer style with our Beach Ball Serving Platters and keep drinks cool with an Inflatable Beach Ball Cooler. They’re adorable and fun to use again and again during your summer activities.
