What’s in a name?
Sort of a profound little line that you might hear someone having a kid or a grandparent say, right? Either way, it’s a great question to ask. Recently there’s been some chatter around “What exactly IS Packed Party?” people have compared us to Birch Box, or other “boxed” goodies, but truthfully we’d like to say that we’re really quite different from it all.
I’m here to tell you that Packed Party is a package, not a box. What!? Aren’t they one in the same you might ask? Not quite! A Packed Party is a form of a care package, a gift if you will, sent to yourself or someone else to show you really care. These packages define “the little things” we all care about the most. I’ve grown up a firm believer in these “little things,” knowing that they make people feel loved. Making people feel special is defined in so many different ways by different people, but making people feel special as defined by me, is throwing them a party (in the form of a gift of course) – and who doesn’t like receiving a package, or any kind of mail for that matter? If you can’t throw a party for yourself or someone else to say hello, happy birthday, or you’re going to get through whatever it is, you might want to rethink things a bit. You’ll always hear girls say, “it’s the little things that mean the most to me”, so here it is, our team just did the legwork for you!
Why would I spend the time explaining what this is? The answer is simple- It’s all in the name! My name for instance can be quite confusing for many people. Whether it’s been my first day of kindergarten or interviewing for a job, most people see the name Jordan and assume I’m a guy, it’s always been sort of a game for me seeing the look on their faces when we meet and to their shock I’m most definitely a girl! I wanted to use this post, like meeting these people and surprising them, as a chance to show you who we really are. Unfortunately I don’t have the chance to meet every single one of you and show you what’s in our name, but this should give you some of the insight you need about us.
Have you heard how Packed Party was dreamt up? Maybe vaguely? I was having a bit of a “Pity Party” after moving to San Francisco for a new job, and woke up from a dream about actually being able to send themed party packages like a Pity Party to yourself or someone you care for. I’m a self-proclaimed homebody, and someone who loves all things events-related (two vastly different things), so combining my love for staying-in and throwing a party for your self with my weakness for a fabulous theme produced Packed Party. All of the parties we have launched with are based on real life occurrences (yes, we’ve all been through em’). Whether a birthday, or a break-up there’s a party for anything and as you know; it only takes one to have a packed party.
So you’ll hear us say that-“It only takes one to have a Packed Party” and you might wonder how that makes sense. Have you ever been at a jam-packed party and not known a soul in the room? Maybe you felt like it might have been a better idea to stay home? With our packages, like our logo states, we’re really all you need to have the party all to yourself. Obviously we’ve launched with 5 packages this first month, but we have plenty more parties up our sleeves, I promise.
My hope is when you see one of our packages on your doorstep you smile knowing someone thought enough of you to send a celebration, or you thought enough of yourself to start your own party. Each of our packages contents are being kept a surprise as to add to the fun of receiving (stop trying to peek, you). Trust me, I’ve mastered throwing my own party, and would love to help you throw yours.
