Del Ray Variety

Since we had such glorious weather on Monday, I decided to take a break from working to walk into town and run some errands. While there, I finally got a chance to check out the new store, Del Ray Variety - and let me tell you, it is awesome. I was impressed with everything they had there - but the party-planner in me was especially excited by their party supplies. For anyone in the neighborhood who is throwing any type of celebration - big, or small - this is an excellent new resource.

The first thing I was super psyched about was that it has balloons. Lots and lots of balloons. You can buy them and deal with them yourself or they can provide the helium and put them all together for you. And they had a ton of variety. From showers to birthdays, basics to holidays - they had a bit of everything. My favorites were these black and white polka dotted beauties:


They also have a ton of other party supplies. From tablecloths to utensils, napkins to favors - they have a ton of options here:

So be sure to drop by and check them out!

As those of you who read my bio know, I recently moved from Brooklyn, NY to the Del Ray, VA area. While I was sad to leave Brooklyn (mainly due to the food...ah, the food), my husband and I were definitely ready for a change. And most important, it allowed me to jump into this new venture. The move and transition has taken time, but I'm thrilled to finally have a real home office space in our new home where I can, to quote my tagline, "get sh*t done." Things are slowwwwwly coming together - thought I'd give you all a sneak peak into how the space is coming along. Hope to provide a "before" and "after" shot in the near future!
