Oriental Trading is one of the nation’s largest direct merchant of value-priced party supplies, arts and crafts, toys and novelties. Oriental Trading has been providing you with the best valued supplies since 1932 when they began the nation’s first wholesalers of value-priced novelties and gifts. In the 1950’s they became the major supplier of U.S. carnival trade and in the 1970’s they started using their catalogs and direct marketing to get even more business. By the 1980’s they got their first toll-free phone number and Oriental Trading just continued to grow and grown. In 2012 the company was purchased by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway after seeing the tremendous value and growth of Oriental Trading.

Sweet Southern Lovin had the opportunity to work with Oriental Trading. I get the catalogs in the mail but have never ordered from there so I was really excited when I had the opportunity to work with them. Aubreigh’s 5th birthday party is coming up really soon so I knew exactly what I was going to spend my gift card on. Aubreigh wants a Monster High birthday party. I searched around on Oriental Trading and was surprised by what all Oriental Trading offered for parties along the line of Monster High. With by gift certificate I was able to get all of the following for Aubreigh’s party: Monster High Rubber Bracelets, Turquoise Paper Striped Straws, Monster High Party Cups, Rubber Jewel Rings, Black Party Lanterns, Mini Hot Pink Popcorn Boxes, Turquoise Paper Plates, Hot Pink Napkins, Monster High Dessert Plates, Monster High Paper Table Cover, Monster High Party Invites, Monster High Confetti, Monster High Decoration Swirls, and a pack of Metallic Marabou Pens. So how much do you think was spent on all that??? It was less than $70!!!! I couldn’t believe it. In the back of my head I was thinking maybe it is not going to be the best of quality because it is so cheap. When I got my box it was so much more than I expected. Everything is super high quality and even the Black Party Lanterns are made well enough that I can save them and use them year after year. Aubreigh is so excited for her birthday party now because she has a lot of cool stuff. Kaylee is turning 4 in September and Oriental Trading will be the place I go for all her party stuff!!
