Partywear shop ?

Hi there

I am hosting a party for 200 people and the theme is Mexican.
I have tried to order party decorations from the USA but they don't ship to Switzerland.
I am now at the point where I need to find a place either in Switzerland, or a reliable company which you have experience with that has shipped to Switzerland.

Thanks so much

Re: Partywear shop ?

There is a supply warehouse which has a small shop in it that imports Mexican foods and supplies (including Piņatas) in Allschwil. It is called El Sol and is located in an industrial building behind the Aldi by Bachgraben.

The shop is closed over lunch and on weekends, but the owner is very helpful. They supply Mexican restaurants like Tapaderas, etc.

Good Luck!
Karim

Re: Partywear shop ?

Why don't you befriend some real Mexicans and tell them that they will be able to hold a quinceanera at your spot....there would be just a few more guests (like 350 more)...but all in all it would be more authentic.

Here some links that may help you out.

Re: Partywear shop ?

I've ordered from Oriental Trading Company, a large US based party supply store several times in the past, all with excellent service and delivery to Switzerland. They have a great selection of all party themes and very good prices.

Re: Partywear shop ?

I ordered in the end from an English company- we needed to pay a 40 pound delivery, and I guess customs will send the school a nice fat bill but we got what we needed.

Ill put up a link soon.
