Theme Planning, Ideas & Supplies
There is no such thing as too many purses! Grab your bag ladies, it's time to party! A purse party is the perfect party theme for Ladies Night Out Parties, Bachelorette Parties (Hen’s Night In), Bridal Showers, Birthday Luncheons, Retirement Parties, and even Quinceanera Celebrations, Teen Parties, Sweet Sixteen Parties, and Bat Mitzvah Celebrations (especially if you add a charitable element to your celebration).
Check out some of our related party themes that also go great with such celebrations:
Purse Lover Party Invitations
Choosing your invitation sets the tone for your event so spend some time exploring our examples to find the perfect fit for your party! Just change the words to Purse, Pocketbook, Shoe or Jewelry Party to fit your specific theme.

Purse Lover Party Tableware & Decor
We have searched and searched and unfortunately cannot find many acceptable paper goods that are perfect for a purse lover theme party, so for tableware we recommend sticking with the general color theme of your party and incorporating your theme through pure lover table decor.
If you are up for some DIY action, try creating your own plates! For those non-crafty types, do not panic! The only work involved is ordering solid colored partyware and personalized purse theme stickers and then applying the stickers to the plates and cups. Not only can you personalize the message, you can also choose the shape of your sticker.
Welcome each guest to their seat at the table with one of these adorable purse-shaped place card holders!
Purse theme table centerpieces will help carry your theme on through your meal. They also make great party prizes!
We love, love, love theses ceramic cookie jars. Either fill them with cookies or other treats to eat as dessert, or add flowers or a flowering plant…
…or scavenge for vintage purses and tuck a great flower bouquet inside or add a coordinating balloon bouquet for a festive touch.
Consider adding this fabulous bag lady statuette to your centerpiece!
Consider using keychains instead of formal napkin rings since they also double as party favors. Pull the napkin through the ring and then adjust the charm to best show it off. Another great option is to skip the napkin rings altogether. Just fold your napkin beautifully and tuck your party favor into the pocket fold. Bookmark favors and cookie favors work particular well for this.

Make Your Purse Lover Party Last a Lifetime
Don’t let this memorable night fade away with the morning sun. The next day, when all is still fresh, log onto Mixbook to create photo books, memory calendars, and even photo thank you notes or create a 5×7 photo card announcing the day, time, and location of your next celebration.
Or do it the old fashion way — print your own photos and store them in an easily accessible photo album or binder with photo page inserts.
