About Us

Party Supplies for Everyone

Birthday in a Box is your online source for party supplies and party kits. The emphasis is on children’s parties but we have many themes for adults too. Birthday in a Box was founded in 1996 with the goal of making it easy for parents to host personalized parties that are affordable, fun and educational. As parents of young children, we know how difficult and time-consuming it can be to put together a birthday party. Our answer is to offer high-quality theme parties built to our customers' specifications and delivered directly to their doors. We specialize in high-quality, imaginative tableware, favors and activities based on the most popular children’s themes and characters as well as adult milestone birthdays. We also have party themes for holidays and special occasions.

Party Kits

Party Kits, made to serve eight people, are the cornerstone of Birthday in a Box. Our goal is to put together everything you need to throw a party in one convenient package. The standard kits come with plates, cups, napkins and cutlery. Deluxe and Ultimate kits upgrade the assortment to include balloons, streamers, centerpieces and other decorations. Other all-inclusive kits include Balloon, Decoration, Piñata and Party Favor kits. For those of you who prefer to customize your assortment, all products are also sold a la carte.

Personalization and Customization

Our personalized products set us apart from the competition. We are one of the only online party stores that offer thousands of party supplies that can be customized and personalized not only for the birthday boy or girl but for the guests too. You can choose a theme then order personalized invitations and address labels to announce your child’s party. Banners and many other items can be custom printed with the birthday recipients name and a personalized message. Party favors can be customized with the name of each guest so that everyone can bring home a favor that is made especially for them. Best of all, the personalization service is included in the already low prices.

Party Guides

Birthday in a Box wants you to throw the perfect party. Our planning experts have created 100s of Party Idea Guides that give you tips, recipes, games, activities and more that keep guests entertained and create a memorable celebration. The party guides also link to the corresponding products on our site to make shopping and planning easy. As the years go by, your children may not remember the innumerable hours that you spent helping them with school projects or the nights you spent soothing their coughs, but they will always remember the birthday parties you threw for them. Our goal is to help make your child's next birthday party the most memorable of all!

We enjoy talking to about your party planning needs and invite you to call or email us with any questions or comments you may have.
