Get your Prank on: it’s April Fool’s Day at Paper Plus

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Ah, April First. The day we get to play tricks on our loved ones, friends, and co-workers and face no consequence — unless, of course, we get pranked as well.

There are many ways to fool your fellows — and Paper Plus Party Store in Berkeley has just the right accessories for the job. From fake blood to whoopee cushions, our April Fool’s joke kit section provides you with the ammunition you’ll need to prank your friends and seek revenge.

Classic favorite April Fool’s day jokes include:

● snapping gum
● bug in the soap
● fake poo…and other bodily fluids
● whoopee cushions
● false teeth
● false wounds
● Glue, tape, Spirit Gum…all the adhesives
● spandex body suits
wigs…for fashionable fools
balloons…for filling your boss’ office with

But the mischief doesn’t have to end there! Whether you’re going for festive and elaborate (pinata stuffed with packing peanuts for your kids) or understated and frustrating (gluing down a co-worker’s desk supplies), Paper Plus carries what you need.

Still looking for April Fool’s Day ideas? Why not cover your boyfriend’s laptop in My Little Pony stickers from our huge sticker selection? Or give your spouse the gift of toilet paper, beautifully wrapped in artisanal paper from our gift wrap section? Shock everyone with a new (temporary) neck tattoo…see how long they believe it’s real!

In addition to April Fool’s day jokes, Paper Plus also carries a wide selection of supplies to ring in Spring — including Spring-themed dish and serving ware, festive centerpieces and party goods for Easter, Passover, and Cinco de Mayo. There’s always something fun, useful, pretty, or downright playful to find!

Find us on San Pablo Avenue between Cedar Street and Virginia Street. Looking for something specific? Ask one of our helpful staff members at (510) 525-1799.

Dancing on Day of the Dead | Dia De Los Muertos

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Dia de los Muertos (‘Day of the Dead’) is a Mexican holiday which focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

Traditionally, private altars called ofrendas are built in the home or sidewalk to honor the deceased. Sugar skulls, marigold flowers, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed are placed together, and relatives will often visit graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Dia de los Muertos is celebrated not only in homes, with colorful ofrendas filled with a variety of objects, but on the streets, with large street festivals held in the Mission District of San Francisco and in the Fruitvale District in Oakland.

Paper Plus Outlet has a large selection Day of the Dead items, including objects to decorate your ofrenda and to wear to the street parades! We have Day of the Dead decorations including:
