Sidewalk Boutique this Saturday!

You really really really won't want to miss it! Whether you want to spoil yourself, you have a baby or bridal shower coming up, or your mother-in-law's birthday is next week - - - this boutique is for you!

We will have jewelry (nothing over $20), designer hats, fabric covered headbands (darling for back to school outfits), Usborne books, baby gifts, Scentsy products, brag books, Glitter Toes - and more!!

Sound like fun? It even gets better! Enter to win a $50 gift card to Pioneer Party! We will draw one lucky winner at the end of the day on Saturday.

So tell your husband you are going to the gym... or going to a garage sale down the road... or just tell him you are going to get him some chocolate covered cinnamon bears... then jump in the car and head down!!

Happy Shopping!

67 Steps

is all it takes to get into our store from one of the very furthest parking spots available!

Does that sound like a lot?


Really?


Well, we did a case study.

And... here are the results...

160 is the average number of steps it takes to get into Wal-Mart.
This is from the middle towards the back, so a straight shot to the doors. Add 15-50 more steps if you are coming in at an angle.

133 is the average number of steps it takes to get into Target.
This is also from the middle towards the back, so add more steps if coming from an angle.

Now without getting all sassy, I just want to point out that I don't hear complaints about parking at either of the above stores. It just seems normal to park out in the middle of nowhere and walk a bit, right?

So my whole point to this post is please don't let the parking situation scare you away! We try to make up for any parking difficulties in the way we treat you once you are in our store.

Also, there is a standing offer to help you out to your car with your purchases! Especially if you have kids or a balloon order.... we are more than happy help out with your kids, bags, or balloons! (we do this many times a day)

Some customers choose to park at the end of the block - either by the bakery (on the west side) or across from the Legacy center (on the east side)... if you are worried about putting your life in danger with the main street traffic, this would be a good idea for you!

So next time you come by, we wish you luck at getting one of the prime spots right in front of our doors! But if luck isn't with you, then just think - 67 steps (or less) is just part of your daily exercise regimen!
It could be worse.

Happy Walking!

Do you have something to say...

and don't know quite how to say it?

Then bring in these quirky little notepads!

We just got them in - and you are going to LOVE them.

There are pocket/purse pads to organize yourself...

Wouldn't this MOOD ALERT pad be perfect to post on your bathroom mirror so when your husband comes home from work, he knows EXACTLY what kind of mood you're in? Or if you have an emotional friend - wrap this up and give it to her as a little joke. haha


This is a great pad for the office... as long as no one gets caught!


There are a ton of others to choose from! My favorite I can't even show on this site because it has a naughty word on the front. You'll just have to come in and see it with your own eyes.

Don't forget about the Sidewalk Boutique that is coming up this Saturday. Check out our previous post for details... and we will remind you again later this week!

To Motivate You...

This is just a cute little saying to put in your file...


Do all the good you can,

By all the means you can,

In all the ways you can,

In all the places you can,

At all the times you can,

To all the people you can,

As long as you ever can!

(John Wesley)



This could be attached to a can of pop, a can of food, or an empty can and given as a handout or just because to a neighbor or friend.

Pinatas Galore!

We just received a shipment of pinatas and wanted you to see some of the especially cute ones! One of my pet peeves (don't hold this against me) is an ugly pinata. I just don't like the oversized multi-colored donkey look... sorry! So if you feel the same as me, then next time you need a pinata, come in and grab one of ours!
Mention the ugly donkey pinata and get 10% off your next pinata!


For your princess...
Flippin Cute for Summer!

This is the coolest PIRATE PINATA I have ever seen... seriously!

A good choice for a Luau or swimming party... there are some really ugly fish pinatas out there too! This is NOT one of them :)


Perfect for a boot-scootin party!

Have you ever looked for ribbon...?



And not been able to find what you were looking for? A few weeks ago, we took an order to make 15 tulle skirts for a wedding. All the little bridesmaids were going to wear hot pink and black princess tulle skirts... so we got busy and starting putting these together. We obviously had to order in the tulle - but I misjudged and we were about 4 spools short with a couple more skirts to make!

So I called the company that we ordered the tulle from, and we couldn't get it shipped to us fast enough! So I then started calling local craft and party stores to try and find these certain colors... paradise pink and beauty pink. Anyhow, I seriously called about 20 stores! JoAnne's, Roberts, Michaels, Zurchers, Country Loft, and I called all of their various locations! I found out quickly that no one has a good selection of tulle on the spool - a lot of the stores had the basic colors (black, red, white, light pink) but no one had lime, hot pink, turquoise, etc.

My whole point to this long post is that I discovered that here at Pioneer Party we DO have a good selection of RIBBON! Not only tulle, but we have lots of fun prints, sheer ribbon in various sizes and colors, and wrapphia by the yard or the spool.

Ribbon can definitely make a huge difference in wrapping a gift, adding to an outfit (as a headband or a bow), or with decorating for a party!

July Visiting Teaching Message

This month's message is oh-so-cute! It is hanging on a water bottle, with the message and a little packet of hawaiin punch tucked into the pocket. We wanted to portray the idea that the Temple is a refreshing break from the world - as is a good ol' drink of water! It revitalizes, rejuvinates, and refreshes us! Pull out the message and unfold to read all the quotes from the Ensign.





Call or email to order yours this month. They are $2.99 each. If you would like them shipped, we will sell the message only for $2.75 to save you money on shipping the water bottles.
Happy Visiting Teaching!
