How did your business start?

Thoughts become things. Sandy has always dreamed of having a party business, and let’s face it — this valley was in need of a party store.

We knew the three of us would be a dynamic and powerful trio given our unique strengths and how well we work together in any situation that has come our way.

What do you sell?

Party supplies and favors, solid tableware in multitudes of colors, themed party decor (bride to be, first birthday, baby shower, etc.), balloons (arches, columns, bouquets, foils), pinatas, novelty candy, some specialty, custom-made gift items for all occasions and so much more.

If we do not what you’re looking for, we’ll do our very best to get it in for you.

What strategy do you use to hire good people?

Right now, It’s My Party! is family-operated; however, when we do hire employees, we want individuals who have the same respect for customers and love for parties that we do.

What is the best thing about running a business here?

Our community. From Aspen to Glenwood and everywhere between, we have such a wonderfully dynamic, committed community that really supports local businesses, which is really the reason we chose to open It’s My Party! in the Roaring Fork Valley. We couldn’t do it without the support of all of you.

What is your strategy for growth in the next year?

Within the next year, we will be incorporating more party and event planning in addition to expanding our retail business. This will enable partygoers to hire us to do the decorating for their celebration or event.
