"Since a Olivia themed party supplies are unavailable at our local Party City, this was our only option for our born-on-Christmas twin girls' classroom birthday party. I chose Olivia to complement Christmas colors but did not realize that just about everything red would be sold out in the stores. So, finding matching table clothes, plates, napkins, spoons, balloons, blowouts, favors and favor bags was a headache. Plan ahead for this if your are puchasing during Valentines, 4th of July or any other "red" month. Also, since the party hats and the blowouts are not pre-assembled, I stayed up rather late the night before putting it all together on top of all the rest of the party preparations which made mommy rather cranky the next day at the party. Take this into consideration. The blowouts are actually pink while the Olivia docoration that you assemble them with is red and aqua. I wound up purchasing red Spiderman blowouts and taking off the Spiderman part in favor of Olivia. I also thought that a plain red tablecloth would have worked just as well if not better than the Olivia one since the picture part of it shows up only on the side of the table when on. And, since I had very little luck finding an Olivia themed cake and cake topper, I wound up googling an Olivia cake, printing out the picture and taking it to the local grocery store bakery and having them match it. For the cake topper, I added an Olivia figurine I found at Toy R Us for about $5. The red candles and the red forks purchased here are not very good color matches so for stock items and balloons, I would try purchasing them at your local party store just to be certain. I purchased two Olivia t-shirts, one was a 4t and the other 5/6 and the 4t turned out to be slightly larger, oddly enough. I also purchased the red and white striped tights which were not a deep red and ripped within one day. Overall, though, everything worked out and none of the children were aware of the cheaply printed and color faded Olivia pattern. I just wished it was all better quality for the price but availability really limits the situation."
