Sorting Strategies

Organizing is very important, but keeping them after is another crucial step to planning for situations like these. Storage is as important as organizing and is part of the process. Knowing where to put them and how to keep them would help a lot when it’s time to unravel your party supplies.

1. Separate by Theme

Picture this: a box for birthdays, another for holidays. Sorting by theme makes finding things a snap! Birthday hats won't be hiding with Halloween cobwebs anymore. 

2. Separate by Color

Tight-seal boxes with labels are a great way to keep things organized. You can even separate tablecloths, table runners, backdrops, or chair covers by color if you want to go that route. It adds a fun pop and makes grabbing decorations for a specific color scheme super easy.

3. Separate by Category

Plates, cups, napkins – they all deserve their own. Separate bins or baskets for each category keep things tidy and easy to find. Things that can only be stacked or folded should be separate from each other. This helps avoid wrinkling or crumpling of fragile supplies like paper cups or paper napkins from heavy polyester backdrops or burlap napkins.

Where To Put Your Supplies

Now you've got your sorting strategies in mind, but how do you translate that into a system that works for you? The key is finding the right storage containers to create your party supply sanctuary!

1. Themed Bins

The size and type of your party supply collection play a role. If you're a birthday party extraordinaire, themed bins might be your best bet. But if you have a more general stash, category containers could be the way to go.

2. Plastic Containers

Clear plastic bins are perfect for themed party supplies. You can easily see what's inside, so birthday hats and decorations won't become lost pirate booty!

3. Baskets

For everyday supplies like plates and napkins, separate bins or baskets are ideal. This keeps things organized and lets you grab what you need in a flash


We've sorted, we've categorized, we've chosen our storage containers – but there's one more crucial step to party supply mastery: labeling!  Think of it like a treasure map for your party supplies.

1. Label Everything

Clear and concise labels are your best friends. Every container, bin, and basket needs a label that tells you exactly what's inside. No more mystery boxes filled with unidentified party paraphernalia!

2. Use Keywords

Here's a fun trick: use keywords on your labels. Need birthday decorations? Label your bin "Birthday Decorations" – it'll be like searching the internet for your party supplies, but way faster and way more fun!

Organizational Tips

Now you're equipped with the knowledge to become a party supply sorting expert! But before you do the rest, here are some tips that could help you become a master organizer.

1. Seasonal Stashing

Holiday lights shouldn't be tangled with summer luau decorations. Dedicate separate bins or shelves for seasonal items. Come December, you'll thank yourself for knowing exactly where those twinkling lights are hiding!

Let go of the broken party favors and the sad, deflated balloons. Regularly purge your collection of anything damaged, unused, or expired. This keeps clutter at bay and ensures you have space for the good stuff.

Properly learning how to organize your party supplies can save you time and reduce stress. Having a proper system that works for you will help you go through this without breaking any sweat.
