Birthday decorations are a great way to set the theme and the tone of your birthday party. While a birthday party doesn’t necessarily require you to have birthday decorations, it can definitely improve the entire mood of the room if you do have birthday party decorations. Here are just a few of the ways you can use decorations to really enhance your next summer birthday.
Pick Decorative Napkins
Do napkins count a decorations? Of course they do! The right napkins are a great way to decorate a buffet table or to help spice up a set table for a meal. Whether you want generic “happy birthday ”napkins or napkins that shout the guest of honor’s age, there are plenty of different options you can choose from, in a variety of different styles that match your theme or décor. Decorative napkins are a great way to add a lot of punch to a table that might otherwise go undecorated. Fast, inexpensive, and easy—the ultimate way to transform your summer birthday.
Pick Up a Table Decorating Kit
Maybe decorating for a party isn’t your strong suit. Maybe you don’t have time to actually go out and find decorations for the party. If you’re planning a summer birthday party and you need birthday decoration, a table decorating kit is a great way to get everything you need to decorate your tables. You can use these kits to mix up just about any room of your home or venue, quickly and easily. If you’ve never decorated for a birthday party before or decorating isn’t in your skill set, these kits make it extremely easy.
Grab Some More Table Decorations
Especially if you are throwing your party in a rented venue or a restaurant, where you might not have permission to hang anything on the wall, picking up a plethora of table decorations is a great way to transform the space into a real party zone. Items like festive cupcake stands and colorful paper products are both a great way to turn your space into a full-decorated, beautiful space that will be ideal for celebrating your guest of honor.
Wall Decorations by the Bushel
If you are holding your birthday party in a space where you can hang wall decorations, you have a lot more freedom to really create that “birthday” ambiance. Banners that proclaim “Happy Birthday” are just the start. Sign in sheets that match your color scheme, wall hangings that declare “Happy Birthday” and hanging paper lanterns are all great ways to liven up your space. Even if you are going to be decorating the tables, getting plenty of decorations for the walls is always a good idea. This will help to make sure your space feels fully decorated, and not like you ran in a few minutes before and threw some birthday decorations out on the tables.
Decorations for the Guest of Honor
Not all of the decorations should just be the for the walls and tables (though most of them should be). A birthday hat or a tiara is a great way to decorate not just the space, but the person who is actually having a birthday. You don’t have to stop there, either. A birthday sash is sure to draw attention to the birthday girl or boy. If a tiara isn’t really your guest of honor’s speed, you can always pick up a happy birthday crown that allows you to add whatever the most appropriate number is to the front of that crown.
There are also a number of racier options, like a “dial-a-shot” pendant that will make ordering drinks a little more fun, or a diamond shot glass necklace, so the wearer is never without a shot glass on his or her birthday.
Decorate the Food
No matter what kind of food you’re going to be serving, it should be on-theme and on-color-scheme. If you are going to be making cupcakes, make sure the cupcake liners match the other decorations you’ve chosen. We make this really easy by providing cupcake liners in a variety of colors, patterns, and shades, that mesh well with the other decorations that we offer. We have liners that will work well for both male and female birthdays, as well as those that are neutral and can be used for either.
Don’t Forget the Balloons
While, ideally, you can get helium-filled balloons to help fill a space and make it look completely decorated, even balloons that are simply blown up and scattered around the floor still make great birthday decorations. Balloons are a simple way to add more color and fun to a space, for a very low cost.
The key to really transforming a space for a summer birthday is picking a theme and color scheme that the birthday boy or girl is really going to love. If they like silly, fun decorations that make them laugh, that should be the theme of your party. If they prefer classic, more modern birthday decorations, opt for those. As with anything, it is really the details that transform a bland party into a great one. Cupcake liners, birthday hats, and table decorations can all help you turn a space into the perfect birthday party venue.
