After the long, hot, slow-moving days of summer, the ensuing holiday season can seem like a sudden plunge down a roller coaster. Family get-togethers, office parties, and other holiday events loom before us, making us wonder, “Where did the time go?”
With a month until Halloween kicks off seasonal festivities, there is no better time to start planning ahead, and no better time to visit Party Depot in Owasso. Whether you need decorations for your home or for a party, owners Angie Mott and Tammy Underwood can help you prepare for those holiday events, not only with quality party products and accessories, but with advice for making your party or get-together a success. “We can help with planning,” says Angie. “We can work with your color or theme and help you pull everything together.”
Angie relates that sometimes a person may have a main color in mind, but not know how to make that color work without creating a monotone effect. Angie and Tammy can help with ideas to use complementing colors that will make the original color “pop.” In addition to colored products, Party Depot carries a wide selection of popular themed products, like Sponge Bob, Disney, Dora the Explorer, and sports team products such as OU and OSU.
Whether you need Angie and Tammy’s assistance or you are planning your own event, Angie has one piece of wisdom to offer in both cases. “Plan early, especially if you want to rent something for your party,” referring to the many party rentals available from Party Depot, including tables, chairs, karaoke machines, margarita machines, fog machines, tiki hut bars, or chocolate fountains. “If you are planning on a rental, reserve it early, because they are very hard to come by around the actual holiday.”
Perhaps you are not planning a party. You may simply want to decorate your home for seasonal ambience. Party Depot offers all kinds of holiday decorations, with Halloween décor prominent at the moment. Within the next few weeks, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s themed products will make an appearance, making it all the more important to take Angie’s advice and visit Party Depot often in order to plan ahead.
As part of planning ahead for the holiday flurry, it is important also to buy early, according to Angie. “We may have bought a large quantity of an item, but one person might come in and buy all of that item in one purchase,” she explains. “But if we have enough time, we can order more for a customer if it is available from the manufacturer.”
Avoid the headache that comes with last minute planning, and get a jump on the holiday season by visiting Party Depot as soon as possible. Let Angie and Tammy help you restore the joy of the upcoming festivities!
