What’s our new venture about?
Wed 12 Aug 2020 - Chris & James
Welcome to our website where we sell a variety of Sweet Gift Boxes and Party Decorations. Firstly lets discuss the name and a brief history of Where’s My Party Supplies.
What’s in a name?
The ‘Where’s My’ name came from something that James would say whenever he was invited to parties as a kid. As soon as arrived he would say “where’s my party bag?” It makes everyone laugh now, so we decided to take it as our company name.
Since September 2019, we have been involved in parties, events and weddings, providing Photo Booths, Light Up Letters, Treat Walls and Silent Disco Equipment. Business was picking up with lots of bookings for 2020 in the diary, ready to make some memorable events. Then Covid-19 hit the UK in March 2020 forcing enquiries to dry up and bookings to either cancel or postpone. We needed to come up with a new plan…
A Sweet Idea
We needed an idea that could see us through the tough times ahead and to help bring some joy and smiles to people. As lockdown became longer and longer more and more people were missing important family events, birthdays, weddings, and just spending time together, so we wanted to try to tackle this and help ease the pain slightly. As we had already been selling Party Bags we were no strangers to sweets, but we thought as everyone was stuck at home, why not fill a box that fits through a letter box with sweets and add a personalised message!
We began by selling our Sweet Gift Boxes through eBay and Etsy, while James started to build this website you are on now. Slowly the idea started to take off and when we started to get our first reviews in we realised how great it felt to put a smile on other peoples faces with our simple but thoughtful gifts. Our boxes are small enough to fit through most letter boxes, so there is no need for the recipient to be in – imagine working all day to come home and find a little treat box sitting there waiting to be opened and devoured.
Throughout lockdown, we have been sending our boxes out all over the country, and we have since gone international with boxes out to Italy, Belgium, Norway, Los Angeles, Orlando and Western Australia, to name a few.
Sweets for my sweet
If you are looking to send a box our to a loved one, we have a large choice of sweet and chocolate gift boxes to choose from. We are more than happy to swap out items if there is something the recipient doesn’t particularly like, just ask. All of our boxes are sent first class using Royal Mail and orders placed before 2pm (Mon-Fri) are dispatched the same day, with many landing on their doorsteps the following morning.
As sweet as the contents of the box is, the key part is the personalisation. You can choose to have either a text message or a photo message secured inside the lid. The text message is printed onto one of our backing cards, and there is no character limit. Just remember, the more you write, the smaller the font will be. For our photo messages, you simply upload the desired image and a short message when adding the box to the cart, and we then make it look a million bucks, print it using our professional photo printer (borrowed from our photo booths) on 8×6 photo paper and attach it using photo corners so it can be removed and kept forever. It’s these little touches that our customers adore and have helped make us stand out from the rest, giving you a truly personalised present for anyone for any occasion.
Take a look below at just a selection of our boxes and see what you can send to your family or friends. An inexpensive gift with a whole lot of heart.
