Happy Un-birthday to me because a couple of months ago I bought myself a "Birthday Beb" even though my actual birthday isn't until the beginning of December. I was super excited to get this package from Packed Party since this has probably been one of my favorite editions they've ever released. The last time I bought myself a Packed Party I was underwhelmed and disappointed by many of the items I received, but this time around I was just as excited to use everything as I was when I first saw them online to order.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Packed Party here's a little rundown of what it is: First of all Packed Party is not a subscription service... it's 10x better because each package is specifically curated for any special occasion that deserves a little party-of-one delivered to your or a friend's doorstep. Second, each edition of a particular box is only available for a limited time since orders start flooding in and they sell out of the products they use to curate each package (ex. you can still purchase a Birthday Beb package from PackedParty.com but the specific items inside won't be the exact same as the ones I got from the package I ordered in March). Third, the best part about Packed Party is how the whole thing started. Jordan Jones, the founder, is an incredible entrepreneur who started the entire business from her bedroom floor.
The current Birthday Beb has all of the same products I received in mine except in different color schemes and patterns. So far my least favorite item has been the Ban.do disco headphones which, coincidentally, I already wanted to buy from the Ban.do website before Packed Party put them in their packages. The "disco" design on the back of each earbuds has already started started wearing away even though I've only used them a handful of times. I love the Kate Spade holographic mini notebook even though it was a little smaller than I was expecting. The cover appears to be leather and the paper inside is thick enough to not let ink bleed through when you're jotting down quick notes. The drink holder and confetti popper are still sitting on my desk unused. The confetti popper is way bigger than I thought it would be (which is a good thing) so I'm going to wait until a major event where I can pop it in front of a ton of people to celebrate. I don't use drink holders that often but this "I Wanna Party With You" one from Ban.do is cute and seems like it would be perfect for keeping drinks handy at summer festivals and backyard BBQs. All in all, I love this Birthday Beb and it was a perfect gift to wish myself the happiest of un-birthdays!
