When I think of Staples, I tend to think of items for my home office. It’s the first place I’d go for a new printer, but I only recently learned that they have party supplies too!
Staples Copy & Print has customizable postcards, invitations, banners, posters, stickers, and more to help you throw a beautiful personalized party for any occasion. The company recently teamed up with lifestyle expert Annette Joseph, author of Picture Perfect Parties, to offer inspiration and tips to create themed events and personalized parties for small businesses.
Here are Annette Joseph’s tips on how to create a great party:
- Pick a theme. This can start with a graphic on an invitation. Staples Copy & Print invitations offer an amazing array of beautiful images. Pick an invite and you’ve picked your theme. It’s a great jumping off point.
- Use banners and posters to create a festive entrance to the event.
- Make the event memorable with goodie bags and takeaways – a little gift to take home at the end. Create a personalized tote bag with Staples Copy & Print.
- Use fresh flowers or branches from your garden to create a beautiful table scape that reflects the season.

(If you don’t know anyone getting married soon, I think most of her ideas could easily be adapted to create a pampering birthday party or a special “girls night” celebration.)
