6 Ways to Add Style with Quatrefoils

Here’s a fun fact: the design most commonly referred to as a quatrefoil, is actually more accurately called a “barbed quatrefoil,” which, according to Wikipedia (so it must be true), is comprised of quatrefoils “pierced at the angles by the points of an inscribed square.”

What do you mean, “That wasn’t fun at all”? Regardless, our brand new quatrefoil party supplies are stylish enough to make any birthday party more special, and that’s definitely fun for everyone involved.

Each color of quatrefoils on Birthday Express can be used on its own, or in conjunction with an assortment of themed and solid color party supplies. Keep on reading for our quick guide on how to enhance your party with quatrefoil party supplies.
