The first party stores foolishly attempted to sell the actual experience of partying, complete with shouted karaoke, inappropriate heart-to-heart conversations, and complaints from neighbors. Stock up on real party essentials with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of invitations, party supplies, craft classes, and more at Pizazz.
Pizazz prettifies parties with a sweeping selection of party accessories for a cornucopia of different celebrations. Sift through scores of stationary from top-notch designers—including Crane and Bazzill Papers—for the perfect wedding or birthday invite and stop training seagulls to deliver announcements on ketchup-inscribed french fries. Peruse boutique shelves for gift ideas galore to help honor paisley-loving moms-to-be with Vera Bradley bags, accessories, and stationery ($12–$125) or congratulate stylish newlyweds with custom Trollbeads jewelry ($25–$488).
In addition to its copious scrapbook supplies—from the likes of K&Company and 7 Gypsies ($0.25–$45)—Pizzaz schools fledgling crafters with a series of in-store classes. A basic scrapbooking class promises to equip students with the skills to stylishly preserve cherished memories without dipping loved ones in amber ($15).
