Courtney Schmitz and Katie Marler know the stress of throwing that perfect party on Pinterest, and that’s why these two local moms created The Party Squad, a company that can take the pressure off your next party.

“The Party Squad offers themed and personalized tent or teepee services,” says Schmitz, who owns it with Marler. “Each package includes a teepee, inflatable mattress, linens, blankets, cushions, themed decoration and special thank you gifts.”

And the decor is beyond darling – think fabulous flowers, an out-of-this-world space theme, a stupendous safari, games galore and other attractions. The Party Squad also features add-ons, like a s’mores bar, candy tray, custom color-changing mugs, and custom shirts.

“We thought these options could really make the birthday girl or boy feel extra special, especially since some of these options are a take-home gift that will last for years,” Schmitz says.

“We’re both moms, and we’re mostly inspired by what our own kids would like to see,” adds Marler. “We both have boys, and we wanted to make sure there were plenty of options for both boys. and girls. We’ve tried to stick with options that can also be personalized… Everyone’s vision of their party is so important to us, and we want everyone to be as excited to see their party as we are to plan it. .

Marler uses the Bohemia theme as an example: “When I think of it, I might think of flowers and green accents, but our client may envision it as dreamcatchers and more of a whimsical feel.”

In addition to customizing packages based on style and personality, The Party Squad considers each customer’s available space.

“Tents and mattresses can take up a lot of space, so we also have the option of using space-saving tents,” notes Marler. “Not every person or home is the same, and we want to meet everyone’s needs and give them a party they’ll love and remember!”

The dynamic duo behind this venture just asks for at least two weeks notice to prepare well. After agreeing on a theme and other details, The Party Squad shows up at a customer’s home an hour or two before the party starts – or whenever it’s necessary to set everything up – then comes back the next day to pack everything.
