Sisters, Deb Muzzillo and Chris Wade, take partying seriously. "My sister Chris and I have always been frustrated at the lack of party supply options in Rockford and the surrounding areas. We had been talking about opening a party store for about 10 years," Muzzillo said. The sisters—who both do party planning and events for friends and family—finally decided to do something about it. Party Animalz, The Balloon & Party Shoppe was born.The Rockford-area shop opened its doors in August 2015 and offers a variety of party supplies. "We do party planning. We do custom gift baskets and custom floral," said Wade. Whether it's a do-it-yourself party or a soiree professionally planned down to the napkin rings, Party Animalz can help. "We have a huge balloon center. We do any kind of balloon bouquet, arches, columns, and even balloon animals. We do anything ‘balloon' that you can possibly think of," Muzzillo said.Both women have a retail background and a knack for business. "We've always gotten along. We balance each other out. She's a little bit more funky and edgy, I'm a little bit more classic and detailed," Muzzillo said. In less than a year, the pair has successfully handled several weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, bachelorette parties and even a New Year's Eve party. "Even when the economy gets rough, people still want to celebrate," Muzzillo said. Muzzillo and Wade realize that nerves can get frayed at the prospect of planning large-scale shindigs, so they step in. "As soon as they sign up with us, they're no longer stressed," Muzzillo said. "We're sisters who know how to party. Just ask anyone who knows us. We want to help you plan your next special event. You will not be disappointed," Wade says with a smile.
