All About Parties

It is my great pleasure to be opening All About Parties in Ashland, a truly unique American community. The magical mixture of the natural beauty of the area, the colorful history, strong hospitality and friendliness is what makes a small community like Ashland so vibrant.

While this is a new store for Ashland, All About Parties has been doing business in the Rogue Valley since 2007. The Grants Pass store is located in the Grants Pass Shopping Center.  In both stores you will find many unique and colorful items.  We carry over 20 different shades of solid colored plates, napkins and utensils.  A wide variety of piñatas, lots of different themed party goods and licensed party goods to choose from.  We also have a huge selection of balloons, from standard latex balloons that are non-toxic and biodegradable to a large assortment of foil balloons.  We also can create balloon arrangements and different balloon décor for big events from weddings to grand openings; no event is too big or too small.  For the do-it-yourself-ers to our own Event Planning Coordinator, we have a wide range of rental items: tables, chairs, a large selection of table linens just about any color and pattern you can imagine, China, flatware, and stemware to seat up to 200 people, as well as chocolate fountains, Margarita machines, snow cone machines, cotton candy machines, popcorn machines and beverage fountains, also beverage dispensers with decorative stands.

Bring your vision for a perfect event to our experienced staff and we will help you make it a reality.

Owner Jerome Brown is an Oregon Native.  In 1966 his father moved the entire family from Glide, Oregon to Sitka, Alaska a distance of 1400 miles.  After many experiences and 30 plus years it was time for a change.  He left Alaska for Grants Pass in 2000, really needing to dry out.  The average rainfall there was 100 inches a year.  He then purchased Grants Pass Equipment Rentals in 2001 and went to work.

All About Parties was born out of desperation in 2007 when the housing boondoggle became apparent. While our backhoes and bulldozers sat biodegrading, we began renting more tables and chairs.  People seemed to be staying closer to home for weddings and birthdays.  As we added more inventory, it just kept growing, and eventually we moved the party business to a separate location.  Greasy, dirty equipment just didn’t work with anything white, no matter how careful we were.

We invite you to visit our new store, meet our staff and find out what all the excitement is about.  All About Parties is All About You! Find our new location in the Walker Plaza next to Anytime Fitness.  We are open Monday through Friday, 10am to 6pm and Saturday, 10am to 4pm. 541-488-7790
