ROCKAWAY, N.J., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Party City, America's largest party specialty retailer, helps consumers entertain
Party City's "Cheers to Your Health" campaign encourages consumers to celebrate life with loved ones and take active steps toward healthier lives. To kick off the initiative, Party City's celebration expert, Samantha Goldberg, shares a few fun, fresh, spring entertaining ideas to help hosts jumpstart party planning:
The American Heart Association recognizes that laughter and healthy habits such as physical activity can protect from the harmful effects of stress. In fact, studies show that laughter boosts levels of endorphins, the body's "feel-good" hormones; quickens the pulse rate, stimulates blood circulation, activates muscles, increases oxygen intake and helps to induce relaxation.
"Our support of the Go Red For Women movement is inspired by the many women who shop at Party City, and this spring we are honored to continue our relationship with the American Heart Association," says Lisa Laube, president of Party City. "We're hoping our efforts this spring will help customers kick off entertaining season in style and remind them to give cheers to their health and celebrate life with family and friends."
"We are excited about Party City's support and encouragement of family celebrations with heart-healthy food," says Neil Meltzer, American Heart Association Board Chairman and President and COO, Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. "The use of heart-healthy recipes when planning a party is a great way to not only enjoy healthy food, but it encourages family and friends to do the same."
Heart-healthy recipes are available on the Go Red For Women Web site: GoRedForWomen.org/.
