I was in Palo Alto visiting a girlfriend and had time to make a quick visit to the Acme Party Box Company.
Their concept is simple: Instead of wasting money on disposable party decor every time you have a bash, invest in their reuseable items made with sustainable materials.
This genius boutique offers gifts, party favors and creative decor ideas for kid and adult parties: Think chic, eco-friendly and charming. (You can also order online).
I snatched up a table runner, a set of little cloth napkins and two hand-hammered votives. They are ideal for a casual supper with friends or a simple soiree.
I had to hold myself back when I saw the collection of glass drinking jars and paper party straws. Equally adorable are the seagrass tumblers and carafe set, perfect for a lemonade stand.
Now I just need an excuse to have a party!
