Party-in-a-box kits with charm

Less-then-craftsy moms who want to put a DIY spin on their child’s party should check out the new P.S. XO all-in-one party boxes. Launched last month by local moms Soleil Moon Frye and Kara Nortman, the kits come in toddler-friendly themes (safari, pirate, fairy), and contain everything needed to assemble—by hand—a bash for up to ten kids.

Expect high quality decorations like pom pom and tissue garlands, balloon tassels, and confetti; artsy party activities like make-your-own fairy crowns, treasure chests, or spy glasses; and festive party favors. Nice touch: for every box sold, they’ll donate a box to a local charity or family in need. The kits cost $99.95, at psxo.com.
