Birthday Express Review & Giveaway 6/25


Celebrate Express is a leading catalog and online retailer of party supplies and costumes. We currently operate three brands: Birthday Express (children's party supplies), Costume Express (Halloween costumes for children, teens and adults), and Celebrate Express (year-round party supplies for people of all ages). Our goal is to help busy people celebrate the special moments in their children's lives, and their own.

Birthday Express, our first brand, was built around the concept of offering a complete, accessorized product assortment for children's birthday parties. Now the brand currently offers over 150 children's party themes.

Costume Express offers over 4,000 costumes for Halloween and other year-round costume parties, plus a large assortment of costume accessories and Halloween decorations.

Celebrate Express has evolved from being the parent brand of Birthday Express and Costume Express, to operating as a stand-alone brand that offers year-round party supplies for people of all ages.
Through all three brands, we offer an extensive assortment of products in one convenient location, thus eliminating the time-consuming steps required to purchase products at multiple retail locations. Our ability to design and manufacture many of our own party products enables us to develop unique exclusive items and quickly react to consumer trends. We believe this combination of factors creates a more compelling shopping experience than traditional retail stores offer.


A couple months ago we started planning for McKenzie's 3rd birthday. 

I had two ideas, Dora the Explorer or Spongebob, but my husband decided to ask McKenzie her opinion and she replied with DINOSAURS. 



At first I was a little hesitant at my little girl having a Dinosaur Train birthday party, but McKenzie is one of those little girls that will wear a dress and play in the mud, so I decided we would honor her wishes and go full force with her preferred theme. The first place I went was Birthday Express




These decorations are so cute. I think they fit perfectly for a young child and was excited for everyone to see her party theme. This Dinosaur Train theme is based off of Tiny, Shiny, Don and Buddy, with everything accenting their colors. 

We got the Deluxe Party Pack for 8 which includes (8) invitations, dinner plates, cups, forks, spoons, solid-color activity placemats, (16) lunch napkins, solid-color tablecover, foil balloon, (18) latex balloons (3 colors), crepe paper rolls (3 colors), curling ribbon (3 colors), confetti and cake candles.

I didn't notice until the day of the party that the candles were missing, but we buy # candles every year so that was no big deal. One of my favorite items in this set is actually the confetti. I like the variety of colors as well as the detail in the shapes. 


Overall, I was satisfied with this party pack, and while I could do without some things (curling ribbon) I think its a good purchase and worth the money since this set is valued at $34.




I've been a long time shopper with Birthday Express. 

I first found Birthday Express when I was searching for Madison's 2nd birthday, and we ultimately purchased their Disney Princess set. We have since bought multiple times and will continue to purchase in the future. 

Madison turns 5 in October and I can't wait to purchase this for her party!


I also wanted to show this ADORABLE 1st birthday set for a little boy. 
Mustaches seem to be really in right now :)
