A while back I was standing in line at Party City behind a woman and her 3 or 4 year old son. She was buying Spiderman decorations for his birthday- paper plates and cups, a plastic party banner, red and blue streamers and balloons, a plastic tablecloth, and those plastic twirly things you hang from the ceiling. I was surprised when her total was more than $100, especially since it would all most likely get thrown out after the party. That’s when I had the idea to create a party box that people could rent. It would be made up of quality, reusable items that could be customized for each party.
I am excited to announce Rent My Party; Sesame Street. Now available to rent in my etsy shop for $99, this ready to go party will be customized with your child’s name and age and arrive on your doorstep ready to go. Check out the below video to see how simple it is to set up!
I have been working on this idea for a long time and hope Rent My Parties will allow parents to throw a cute DIY party without having to spend countless hours planning, shopping, and assembling. Simply set up your party, and send it back when you’re done.
How it Works:
- Add the Rent My Party listing to your cart in etsy
- The customized party arrives at your door within a week of your party
- Party hard and send back when you’re done
Items include: navy and green striped 60″ x 84″ cotton tablecloth, fabric bunting, fabric high chair banner, customized wooden number sign, *custom 4-part welcome sign, *custom food labels, fold-out fan decorations, white plastic display plates, white plastic cake stand, plastic milk bottles, yellow rubber duckies, stuffed party Elmo and party Cookie Monster, age frames, *green nut cups, *clear cups, *green paper straws, *custom cupcake toppers, *custom water bottle labels/napkin holders, *paper plates, napkins, forks and spoons.
*yours to keep!
Instead of going to the store we just order your 99.00 box with all the paper napkins, plates, plastic cups, banner etc and keep what we ordered. Send back to you I am assuming postage is already paid for correct what is reusable and someone else can order and reuse.
Hi Candy! Yes- you would send back all of the reusable items to be rented again. Shipping is calculated on etsy, and return shipping is free.
What a brilliant business idea!
This is absolutely adorable. My kids are a little older now but this is a great idea. I would have definitely used this in their younger years. I agree with you about the price of decorations and the fact that they get thrown away immediately following the party. Seriously, you’re one smart cookie. I hope it this idea brings you great success, I think it will!!

Wow, what a smart and fun idea! My kids would love this! We live in the Netherlands though, so it’s probably a bit too far to ship ta he package across the Atlantic 😉 But definitely a great concept.

There are 12 but I’m happy to work with you to adjust that.
