Best Party Supplies

  Readers, upstate: Fulton Party & Paper Company (1006 W. 27th St., Wilmington, 594-0400)
  Readers, downstate: Sheila’s Party World (1650 S. Governors Ave., Dover, 734-4173)
  Critics, upstate: “If they don’t have it at Fulton Paper, they don’t have it in Delaware,” Karibjanian says. The massive store is like a warehouse for paper and party goods, and locations in Bear, Hockessin, Middletown and Newark are no slouches either. Practically any theme, event or color under the sun exists in Fulton’s inventory. “I fantasize about throwing theme parties when I walk in there,” Karibjanian says. “When the kids were little, it’s where we went for ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ stuff. Now it’s where we go for Brandywine blue or Tatnall black and yellow.” (1006 W. 27th St., Wilmington, 594-0400)
  Critics, downstate: For sheer quantity, no one comes close to Sheila’s Party World. It should be your first stop for birthday parties, holidays, graduations and anything else you can think of. “Anytime we need party supplies, we always go to Sheila’s,” Leishear says. “You just don’t have that many one-stop places around here. For any themed party, nobody has the amount of stuff that Sheila has.” (1650 S. Governors Ave., Dover, 734-4173)
