Undercover Hostess Launches New Website

Saturday, October 18, 2014

Undercover Hostess, the women-owned startup which creates and rents stylish party supplies, announced the launch of their new website, www.undercoverhostess.com on Tuesday, Sept. 30. The company debuted a unique and innovative concept for hosting parties: beautifully detailed party kits that customers rent, and are then delivered right to their door. 

“Before I started this company, I put so much time and money into themed birthday parties for my daughter, and I would never be able to reuse the decorations,” said co-founder Erin Walker, of where the idea for Undercover Hostess came from. “I wanted a Pinterest style party, but without all the effort of trying to find or craft coordinating specialty decorations. I thought if you can rent clothes and dresses online, why not parties? We have seen great interest in our products and are now very excited to share this brand new concept with everyone.” 

Hostess Kits are available for various occasions – children’s birthday parties, bridal showers, and baby showers. All of the standard Kits include coordinating decorations, event linens, and tableware, for a party of 24. Many products allow for customization as well, adding a personal touch to each event.  

To celebrate the launch of Undercover Hostess, the company is offering 20% off customers’ first orders when they sign up to receive emails from Undercover Hostess.

To be truthful, I am a longtime veteran of a bunch of “you versus me” squabbles and, if I do say, ... (click for more)
