We already assume you can find a Party City around when you need a quickie birthday gathering put together. When you want to go all out and be the talk of the neighborhood? That’s when you go to Emerson Sloan.

It’s not cheap, so have that in mind. It is, however, delightful. The sheer range of items you’re unlikely to find anywhere else in Houston is mind-blowing. They take everything from balloons to unicorn crowns to the next level. You can even rent a massive stork with a crown to celebrate a new baby. Everything is beyond cute, as if the trendiest sections of Pinterest had set up shop.

The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and dedicated to service. If they don’t have something you want, they will bend over backward to help you get it by any means necessary. Pus, their stock changes around a lot so it’s a fine place to go for ideas if you’re stumped on the best way to delight your guests.
