Pirate Boy – New Theme

So how was it for you? We hope the turkey (or nut roast) was perfectly cooked; the Christmas pudding (or panettone) was deliciously moist; the children (or husbands) haven’t got bored of all their presents yet and the cat (or guinea pigs) didn’t pull the tree over!

So, have you relented and decided to throw a New Years Eve bash? If so, have a quick look at the Party Ark site as you can get all your disposable partyware (less washing up, phew!!), light up the room with these fun sparklers and spell out the new year with our giant silver and gold balloons.

So which famous people were born on New Year’s Day? It’s actually a remarkably unpopular day for being born on; in fact we were hard-pressed to come up with anyone remotely famous (unless you count Jonas Armstrong who was Robin Hood, and whom you can soon see as ‘Bill’ in next year’s Rage of the Yeti.) New Year’s day is also the annivesary of the very last gladiator contest in ancient Rome. On this occasion the unfortunate Telemachus tried to put a stop to the proceedings, and (because intervening in a fight between men with choppers is generally a bad idea) he came to an untimely end. However, it did cause the authorities to decide that gladiating was de trop, until the tradition was restarted by ITV in the 1990s.

Now you’ve probably never heard of the playwright Elkanah Settle (another New Yea’s day birth) but we can assure you his Empress of Morocco is really very good and was very popular in its time (1673). Sadly, Elkanah peaked early and was not able to reproduce his early success; in his old age he kept a booth at Bartholomew Fair where, dressed in a green leather dragon suit he performed in a play of his own creation. We like to think those who saw it never forgot it.

For this week only as a late Christmas present to our lovely customers we’ll send your order as a special delivery at the cost of first class postage. We like to try and keep those stress levels low – have a wonderful New Year! Any problems, we’re here during office hours on 01572 748 609.

We all have such special memories of Christmas Eve as children here at Party Ark and want to make it as special as we can for our own children – there’s nothing quite like the magic of Father Christmas and his reindeer landing on your roof and coming down the chimney! (I was told I had to put the fire out last year as my daughter didn’t want him to get burnt!)

Make the occasion extra special by suggesting the kids put out a mince pie and glass of port for Santa on a stylish plate (and don’t forget the carrot for Rudolf…)

Can’t agree on what TV programme to watch with the relations? Why not turn it off altogether and have a game of charades whilst serving up some delicious nibbles. Or why not decorate a branch with these lovely wooden decorations to spruce up a plain wall.

We’re once again running a 10% off Everything in the Store promotion (not costumes, sorry) – all you have to do is click one of the links in the email for it to work and enter your discount code E102 at the basket page. Any problems, we’re here during office hours on 01572 748 609.
