The Confetti Post

Make way for parties in a box!  Kind of like a care package, but a lot more fun and without all the work hopping from store to store to find the perfect items, buying a boring box, then fighting the lines at the post office.  Parties in a box are a way to share my love of parties with everyone, and the best solution to brightening days and celebrating the people we care about even when miles separate us.
