We can all strive to be as much like Martha Stewart as possible. But while we can only hope to achieve a sliver of her entertaining prowess by following her lead on eschewing truffle oil, reclaiming lost pie dishes, or personally tasting every wine we recommend, sometimes we might just wish Martha could throw our parties herself. Luckily, when it comes to decorating for a Martha-approved bash, Michaels craft stores are about to make things a whole lot easier by adding more than 300 new party supplies to the Martha Stewart Celebrations collection.
Hitting Michaels stores nationwide on yesterday, the color-themed party items come in ten different collections to match whatever the vibe of your festivities happens to be. Those vibes include Black & White, Blue Indigo, Cotton Candy, Gold, Kraft, Meyer Lemon, Mint & Blush, Pink Ombre, Sterling, and Turquoise options. Some have flashier, metallic accents while other go bold on color and patterns, all with that tasteful Stewart tact.
The party products themselves range from paper plates, napkins, cups, straws, place cards, confetti, tissue paper decorations, and balloons, to sparkly Champagne flutes and flatware, as well as cupcake stands, trays, and buckets for serving and boxes for party favors. And if you want to get really bold, you can mix and match the plates from one collection with the garlands and ribbons from another (just do so at your own design-eye risk!). Items are all priced under $30, so you don’t have to break the bank to gussy up your next backyard barbecue or glamorous gala.

For the super-crafty Stewart superfan, Michaels will also carry an exclusive Martha-branded metallic-pearl-colored Cricut cutting machine, which, for the unfamiliar, uses software to precisely cut materials like paper, cardstock, and leather into a variety of preset and customizable shapes. With precision tools and immaculately matched decor, maybe it won’t be so hard to reach that Martha Stewart bar after all!
