A new party supply store has opened just in time for graduation and summer pool celebrations.

Sweet Party offers a huge selection of party goods, as well as plenty of sweets and candy.

"We're carrying some other items that are different, like gourmet candy," said co-owner Donna Haller.

Unique to this party supply store is the handmade chocolate they offer from Sweet Pete's, the Jacksonville-based gourmet chocolate company.

"We're very excited to carry their product because you cannot get that anywhere else in the Tampa area," Haller said.

In addition to chocolates, Sweet Party has both bulk and prepackaged candies and sweets — cute for parties, says Haller — plus a full array of party supplies for every occasion, including balloons, favors, and tableware. Customers can call ahead to order balloons, or they can come in and pick from the hundreds of varieties in stock. If you are purchasing a large balloon order, Sweet Party offers delivery. Costumes are available year round, and a huge selection will be available for Halloween.

The store offers fundraising for local schools, so when a customer makes a purchase, they can choose a school to apply their order to. At the end of the school year, Sweet Party will make a donation.

Sweet Party is located at 20310 Trout Creek Drive. The store is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call (813) 994-4900, or visit
