Parties and Occasions

Planning a party or event doesn't have to be stressful. At Walmart.com, you'll find lots of fun party ideas and everything you need to make your event a success.

Whether you're planning a party for children or adults, it's fun to have a theme. Good themes for kids' parties include princesses, superheroes or "under the sea." Adult parties are often organized around holidays or sporting events, but you can also choose a theme like winter wonderland, Hollywood or the '80s. Look for invitations, party decorations and disposable tableware that fit your theme. For a more DIY look, consider crafting your own themed centerpieces.

Many people devote a lot of energy to preparing food for events, but with a little advanced planning, the process can be fun and relaxed. Create a menu well ahead of time and make a shopping list with all the groceries you'll need. If you're doing the cooking, line up the tasks so you can do most of the cooking in advance, and have a clear list of last-minute steps for the day of the event. If you prefer not to cook, consider a potluck or order a deli platter.

Whether you're celebrating a birthday or another event, a cake will put everyone in a festive mood. You can order a cake for any occasion from a Walmart bakery, or use our cake, baking and pastry supplies to bake and decorate your own.
