This year, we’re redefining what it means to connect with our loved ones and celebrate the holidays. Although we may not all be together in one place on New Year’s Eve, we’re determined to welcome 2021 with festive decorations and a lot of noise! To make this happen, we built our own New Year’s Eve party in a box. Here’s how we did it.
Packing A Party In A Box? We’ve Got A Few Tips
When it comes to traditional party planning, there are a couple of must-haves that need to be assembled, decorations, food, and party fun. When it comes to shipping a party in a box, we still prioritize the traditional elements of decor and party fun, but we add a little more to make sure our party arrives safely. If you’re planning on building your own party in a box, we recommend considering safety precautions like a sturdy shipping box, reliable cushioning, and clear labels.
Shipping Must Haves & Tips For Your Party Box
- Shipping Box: Sometimes packages are being jostled or dropped when they’re being handled. To help minimize the impact of these potential situations, we recommend shipping boxes made of ultra-durable materials like thick, corrugated cardboard.
- Cushioning: To help minimize damage to your items, remember to wrap your items with cushioning to provide support on all sides.
- Shipping Labels: Make sure your items arrive safely to their destination with a clear label on the front of your package. Use labels with a solid white background and address your package with blue or black ink. A clearly written label helps third-party carriers transport your items easier than a label with a busy background.
