Planning a party?
The Party Box Etc. can help.
The newly opened business offers everything one needs to plan a festive occasion.
Partners Judy Barnes and Martha Green were tired of trying to get their shopping done for parties for their children.
â€œIt seems like when we would go to plan a party we would have to go to three or four different places,â€ Barnes said. â€œSo we thought wouldnâ€™t it be neat to have everything all together.â€
The store offers party packages. One can come in with a theme in mind and get all of the matching gear.
One of the most popular party packages include birthdays, everything from the plates, party hats and tablecloth can match.
Elmo, Sesame Street, SpongeBob SquarePants and Lord of the Rings are some of the favorite themes for children.
Wedding and bachelorette packages are also high on the list. And donâ€™t forget New Yearâ€™s packages include everything from hats to champagne glasses.
Barnes said the idea to open a store like this was long overdue.
â€œThere is a real need for it in Denver,â€ she said. â€œA lot of people go to Mooresville or Lincolnton to do their shopping.â€
The store also offers gift baskets which can be done for almost any occasion.
There are also balloons available including the standard greetings such as â€œHappy Birthday,â€ and â€œOver the Hill.â€
The Party Box Etc. is located at 3732 North N.C. 16 in the Lake Center Plaza.
For more information call 704-489-0706 or toll free at 866-484-0706.
A Web site will be up and running soon, www.thepartyboxetc.com.
