Oriental Trading Review

Scarlett's first birthday party is coming up at the end of November.  Her party theme will be winter wonderland and I couldn't be more excited! I've been researching different winter themed food and snacks and decorations.  The winter theme is so much fun and there will be plenty of snowflake decorations as well as her snowflake themed cake! Keep Oriental Trading in mind for any of your party needs for the present or future.

Oriental Trading carries an irresistible amount of fun value-priced products for every occasion.  If you're on the hunt for party supplies, novelties, toys, crafts, and party favors, you've come to the right spot. I do believe Oriental Trading has everything you could ever need to throw any themed party possible for your child.  Don't forget to use the company for wedding supplies and bridal shower needs too.  If you're throwing a baby shower for a friend or relative, all of your baby needs are covered, thanks to Oriental Trading. Please keep them in mind for your end of summer luau, BBQ, or pool party too. You can't forget upcoming Halloween or Christmas decorations either.  No holiday is complete without tons of themed decorations.  All of the products will help make your next party or event extra special and fun.

I've been planning Scarlett's birthday party since she was weeks old.  My family makes fun of me for how much I've been mentally planning and discussing it.  They keep telling me that she won't remember any of it and there's no reason to make it so large.  My philosophy is that you only have your first birthday once, it should be special! I'm not listening to them, haha.  The holidays are my absolute favorite time of year and I was so happy that Scarlett was born in December.  I can't think of a more exciting party theme than winter wonderland!

I was surprised at how easy it was to find snowflake and winter themed decorations. Luckily, Oriental Trading had a lot available! They kindly sent me snowflake themed party cups, napkins, plates, utensils, and a glass covered candy jar.

Winter themed party supplies? Check!

I received multiples of everything, but it's easier to just show you one of each thing.  The plates and napkins are adorable and I love that the snowflake is so big and vibrant. Each plate is very durable and large enough to easily hold all of the tasty food and snacks that I serve at the party.  The soft blue is muted, but still very pretty.  These plates definitely remind me of winter.  Unfortunately, I did make a mistake and I ordered the cups that don't match my plates and napkins.  Luckily, that's not an expensive mistake and can easily be fixed.  I didn't realize this until my order came in. 

One exciting thing that I'm looking forward to at the party is having a hot chocolate bar. Hot chocolate will be kept warm in a crockpot and guests will be able to also put mini marshmallows in their drink.  How fun is that? The snowflake cups will be perfect for this.

If you're wondering why I have a glass covered jar, that's for my candy bar station! I received two of these in my order and they will be filled with Hershey's kisses and sno-caps. Next to the jars will be chocolate covered white Oreo's with blue sprinkles and blue and white cake pops.  Yum! I wish I could dig into that candy bar station right now.  The jars are sturdy and high quality.  The candy will look great inside the jars.  

Luckily, the party is still four months away and I have more time to plan.  I'm still in the process of booking a venue but that shouldn't be too hard to do.  I can't wait for more of the plans to finalize and the rest of the decorations to be complete.  Scarlett has her party dress all picked out which is pink with white snowflakes.  How fitting! This party will be here before and I know it and I can't believe how quick time is flying by.  It feels like Scarlett was just born!

If you're looking to make your next party fun and memorable, Oriental Trading is here to help.

  1. I love Oriental Trading. We have a lot of parties and always keep tubs of unopened toys, etc. for the kids to enjoy. It helps keep them entertained and allows the adults to spend time visiting. Oriental Trading is a great source for our tub of toys.

  2. Really nice post on “Oriental Trading Review”! It was great reading this. Anyway, I have been thinking to host an outdoor party on my sister’s 16th birthday. Could you please suggest some sweet sixteen party venues Houston TX?
