If you’re anything like us you’re a thrifty shopper and can’t pass up a good sale. Over the years I’ve planned my fair share of themed parties so I’m always looking for cheap finds, especially when buying in bulk.
Below are my current favorite finds from some of the stores and websites I shop the most.
Our Current Favorite Find: ArtMinds Wooden Laser Cut Frames that you can paint any color you please. They range in price from $3.99 to $7.99 depending on the size you choose. In the example below from PinTheMall.net the smaller frames were used to create wedding dress shopping signs. How adorable is that!!
Another fun idea is to buy the larger sizes and paint them to use as a photo prop at the bridal shower or bachelorette party. Even if you don’t plan on having a full photobooth set up it would still be a fun prop for guests to use when taking a picture with the bride.
Whenever I have to buy in bulk I start my search at Oriental Trading because if they have what I’m looking for, 9 times out of 10, it’s going to be the best price I’ll find. I recommend coming here to look for party favors.
Our Current Favorite Find: They have officially made getting your candy buffet assortment easier than ever! All you have to do is pick a color and add it to your cart. If you need the candy jars they have them as well. This is your one stop shop for creating a “candy bar” at your bridal shower or bachelorette party.
Our Current Favorite Find: this black chalkboard stand up sign that’s currently on clearance for $1.00 a piece! Further searching of the site lead us to find they have a variety of other colors, including bright blue, and are currently retailing for $3.99 for a 4 pack. So you’ll still be on track to pay $1.00 a piece.
Use these at your bridal shower for table numbers, name cards for guests, or to mark trays of food, items at your candy bar, or beverages in jars.
That’s our monthly roundup for February. Do you have a great find? Share it with us in the comments section.
