Party Paradise is a family owned and operated party supply business, where everything we do is for the glory of God. After all, who has more to celebrate than we do?
As a young, creative college student, Steve St. Clair decided to major in art at the University of Louisville. His plan was to teach art in the public schools. However, after discovering that art teachers were in low demand, he got an emergency teaching certificate in special education. And so Steve began a long, successful career as a teacher and school administrator.
While in his early twenties, Steve also started his first business selling his original paintings and limited edition prints of his work. Even though the business was small, the entrepreneurial seeds were planted. Once Steve became a school principal, there was diminishing time for his artwork business. But when he retired, he found the perfect outlet for his creativity: opening a party supply store.
Opening the store was actually his wife Valerie’s idea. She had the vision of a party supply store, with a party room located inside the store. It looked like her business degree was going to pay off. They agreed that they wanted a large store that had everything the customers could want, including costumes sold year-round. But it couldn’t be just another large party supply warehouse, where the customers had to fend for themselves. Instead, this store would have a large balloon counter, which would be the epicenter for helping the customer plan their party. They truly wanted to offer their assistance, and pull from their wide variety of products!
With God’s direction, and a lot of hard work, in late May of 2015, Valerie, their daughter Alexis, and Steve opened a 7,508 square foot party supply store, in their home town of Louisville. They called it “Party Paradise”. Even though they’re growing at a steady rate, they promise they’ll never get too large to provide you with individual attention. Stop by and meet their helpful staff. They would love to make your party EPIC.
