Minted (http://www.minted.com), the global design community and e-commerce site, today launched a first-of-its-kind line of chic party decor suites for holiday parties, birthdays, baby showers, and a variety of other occasions. Decor items are available as tastefully coordinated decor suites. Items include customizable printed bunting banners, signs, confetti, table centerpieces, stickers, and thoughtful details like cupcake toppers, straw flags, party crowns, tree ornaments, and DIY pinwheel party favors. Minted suggests beautifully matched invitations and thank you cards to complete a seamless party look. Coordinated party decor suites start at $65.
“We see an emerging trend toward stylish parties driven largely by professionally styled images on Pinterest and wedding blogs. Minted will help bring those party dreams to life,” said Mariam Naficy, founder and CEO of Minted. “By crowd-sourcing design from our immensely talented community of designers, Minted can rapidly launch new categories with superior design and selection.”
Having launched wall art in summer 2012, party decor is the second new vertical that Minted has launched in the past four months. “Minted has evolved into a multi-category design and lifestyle brand for the mass affluent woman,” said Naficy.
Minted’s assortment of party themes assortment will continuously grow and remain fresh. Like all products available at Minted.com, the new party decor suites are community-designed and printed on luxe paper. Designers from around the globe submitted more than 900 designs to Minted’s first party decor challenge. Winning designs include festive holiday parties, stylish baby showers, and fanciful kids’ birthday party decorations featuring pirates, princesses, and monsters.
