Become the king and queen of your own carnival by donning the Groucho glasses ($15/dozen) and a rhinestone tiara ($12.95), or for a more social get-together, prop up cardboard cutouts of Darth Vader and Marilyn Monroe ($33.95 each) as bouncers outside your exclusive mustache party (fake 'staches start at $1 each). Bachelorette-party games, such as the barroom scavenger hunt, and party favors including to-be bridal accoutrements, range from $9.95–$32.95 and up for a group of eight. Whatever the theme, 100% biodegradable helium-inflated balloons lend a buoyant hand to the festivities ($12.50 per dozen). The Lippman Company's stock of giant fake diamonds ($9.95/dozen) can make a lifelong dream of wooing a giant inflatable Paul Bunyan come true.
