Shop Review – Surprise Modern Party and Cocktail Goods

If you’re planning a party in Columbus, Ohio then you need to make sure you stop by Surprise Modern Party and Cocktail Goods in the Short North as your first step.

As you walk in the door the geometric floor and bright colors will surround you as you find countless items that will immediately be added to your shopping list. You will find inspiration and supplies for the perfect event from a simple gathering for a baby shower to your next ultimate theme party.

Surprise was opened in the summer of 2016 by Olivera Bratich, the owner of another Columbus favorite, Wholly Craft in Clintonville. Olivera has a background in event planning and after running Wholly Craft for twelve years she was looking for another big project. The idea came as she was throwing a party and had a terrible experience shopping at the big box stores for party supplies. She decided that she could make this experience much better by opening her own space that celebrated these events with unique themes, decorations and amazing customer service.

So what is Olivera’s best party planning advice? Always have a photo booth and don’t forget about the experiences at the party, make sure to have some fun games or activities that will help people socialize at your event.

Stop by Surprise in the Short North Arts District in downtown Columbus to get everything you need to throw an event that will be remembered even after the confetti is cleaned up and the balloons have deflated.

Don’t forget to stock up for your New Years party with holiday hours: Tuesday – Friday 12pm-7pm, Saturday 11-8 and NYE 10-6.

Surprise Modern Party is located at 941 N High St, Columbus, OH 43201
