After Marge sold the copyright for Little Lulu to Western Publishing Co., Hallmark created an extensive line of Little Lulu items.
The Hallmark Little Lulu birthday party items featured a picture of Lulu and her friends playing marbles. The items included party invitations, table centerpieces, paper tablecloths, dinner and dessert paper plates, dinner and dessert napkins, and 9 oz. paper cups. It also included party favors: mini puzzles with a picture of Lulu painting at an easel, mini coloring books, coin purses with a the cover of LL #89, and pressure-sensitive seal books. Below are pictures of some of those items. (You may click on the photo for a larger picture.)
Here is a section from the tablecloth, and then some individual pictures enlarged from that section:
