Rockband theme at your next party!!!

Rockband seems to be getting more and more popularity everyday. It’s unbelievable…

The game is relatively simple in theory. All you need to do is form a band (no experience necessary). The band members include a vocalist and three musicians (guitar, base and drums). So assuming you’ve bought the game and have the Playstation or Xbox, all you need to do is form a band…

I thought it was worth a post after watching a Rockband competition the other night. It was simply amazing how involved a bunch of 20 somethings got into the game. About 40 guests formed multiple 4 member bands, many of the musicians joined multiple bands to mix it up. Very cool and very successful. It’s a great idea for birthdays and other types of parties. This game will definitely be replacing board games.

Rock ON!!!

For more information on the game visit the official website at www.rockband.com.

Also if you want to take it to another level, shop for some great costume accessories listed below:

Rock star wigs

Rock star sunglasses

General rock and roll supplies.

Rock out at your next party!

The Goodie Bag by Matthew Ellyett


As a young boy, I considered myself somewhat of a connoisseur of the grade school birthday party scene.

Not because I was popular, but because at that age, if there was a birthday party, my mother would find a way to get me invited just to take me off her hands for a couple of hours.

Now don’t get me wrong, I was a great kid.

And like any great kid, I had a sweet spot for the finer things in life. Cake, presents and carnival games all did a good job of putting a smile on my face, but the real magic happened at the end of the party. It is known by many names: the Goodie Bag, Loot Bag and Travelers Delight are just a few. It was a little something on the way out the door to let the kids know that the party wasn’t quite over.

The trick to a sweet Goodie Bag is variety and surprise, give them enough to keep them busy and don’t be afraid to mix things up. To be safe, steer clear of any candy or foods to avoid complications with allergies and remember that toothbrushes do not make good party favors. The most important thing to keep in mind is that it’s supposed to be enjoyable for both you and the kids.

For Goodie Bag ideas check out our PartyMart.com store for affordable options on noise-makers, accessories and party prizes to make your child’s Goodie Bag and party a success.

Remember, if for no other reason, the Goodie Bag gives weird kids a reason to get out of your nice house.

David Roth does Prom...


David Roth writes, "Now that prom and reunion season is coming up on us, its fun to try and find something to help you stand out.

It's easy to use a couple little things to really spruce up a get up.

For my graduation party, instead of going with a date, I went with a couple of friends draped in red boas while I wore a top hat and a cane. White gloves are, of course, optional. For me, I just figured it would be over doing it a bit and I didn't want to take the spotlight away from my two friends (although I seem to have misplaced my top hat here).

However, walking onto a dance floor with someone on each arm will definitely get you remembered.

The main thing is to have a lot of fun and not to forget it’s supposed to be a fun night".

Bachelorette Party Ideas

Planning a bachelorette party (stagette) for your best friend or sister?

We've noticed that as the sumer approaches, the event that was once reserved for the night before the big day is being planned to perfection months in advance. Committees are formed, research and important notes are considered and those with prior stag experience are consulted regularly.

WOW! It seems that the stag is quickly becoming another major event in addition to the wedding, engagement and showers. As this type of event grows in popularity and size we think its a great idea to come up with activities for both the bride and all the guests to participate in.

At PartyMart.com we've actually been researching and adding new products regularly. Obvcoarse our feather boas are a great start for the bride to be and party but so are the games, costumes and novelties.

Check out all the suggested
bachelorette novelties and games on our page. They will definitely give you a head start when preparing! 

Coming soon... a party checklist just for stags. If you have one, email it to us and it might even get posted!

Our bachelorette products include a
flashing Sash for the bride, the bachelorette bingo game for all the girls to play, and Mardi Gras Beads (we have a whole Mardi Gras bead section).

If you have any funny stories about bachelorette parties, let us know...

Hot Summer Pool Parties.


Hey everyone, just this past week we decided to post our summer long luau banner titled "Hot Summer Luau." The banner links to all of our luau, beach, tiki and summer fun products.

We posted it because we know how excited everyone is for the summer. School is out (or about to be), its the time of year when everybody comes out to play and celebrate.

Just as a reminder we thought we would give you a short list of things we thought of that you should be aware when hosting a 'Fun in the Sun' pool party:

- If its a pool party: Make sure everyone is behaving. Don't drink too much or don't drink any alcohol if you are enjoying with children. Is anyone a lifeguard? 

If not, remember to be responsible. Below you'll find a link where there are all sorts of suggested rules, remember its everyones responsibility. A swimming pool can be fun and it can be dangerous.

Here's some
suggested pool rules

Want to have fun in the pool? Try our
beach balls! They are easy to inflate, very inexpensive and can be fun for almost anyone.
