Steals of the Week: Party ideas

Cinco de Mayo is one of the ultimate party days, so this edition of Steals of the Week is all about party ideas. Below are five awesome steals on different items you can use for party ideas.

One of the simplest party ideas that seems to always work is a bowl of punch. It allows you to set a theme (for example with Cinco de Mayo, you can put strawberry margarita in the punch bowl), and gives people a central place to socialize and quench their thirst with a refreshing drink. Punch bowl sets can get quite expensive, but this seller in Tracy, Ca. is offering an unused Anchor Hocking Savannah 8-piece punch bowl set for just $10! What a steal!

Another great party idea is offering people a chance to play video games. You can tailor which video games you set aside depending on the taste of the people attending your party, and it’s an easy way to get everyone together and excited. The only downside is the price – if you don’t already have a system. That’s where this steal for a $175 XBOX 360 Elite (or best offer) from a seller in Elk Grove, Ca. comes in to play. That’s quite a savings on the retail price.

Here’s one of those party ideas that’s a bit unique for you, but can be a blast: Enlisting your partygoers to deep fry various foods of their choosing. You’d be amazed how much fun it can be to deep fry things like chocolate, twinkies and even broccoli, if you’ve never done it before. The hard part is finding an affordable electric deep fryer. Well, this seller has a 3-quart electric fryer on sale for just $60. A steal indeed.

Nothing gets a party started like a little friendly game of poker. It’s one of those party ideas that is just a no-brainer. Playing poker is even more fun with a good poker chip set.  Enter this steal. A seller in San Jose, Ca. is unloading his World Series of Poker Professional poker chips set for just $45 and claims it is brand new. That is a significant discount worth of Steals of the Week.

We’d be remiss not to include a stereo among our party ideas. There is no easier way to set the tone for a rockin’ party than with some good music. Luckily, you can do so at a reasonable cost with this steal from Sacramento, Ca. This seller is offering up his Sony Stereo System for only $75. Tough to beat that.
