When planning birthday party decorations, most people rely on the basics of balloons, streamers, a personalized cake and flowers. However, you can make your party decor stand out with a special theme, customized decorations, handmade embellishments or a decor that encourages interaction amongst your party guests. Before decking out your party space, consider the guest of honor’s personality and preferences, and center your theme around these.
Homemade birthday party decorations not only cost less, but they impart a custom look on your event. Rather than match all your decorations, which has a packaged look, aim for coordination, picking up a background color, detail or theme throughout your space. Make the look bright and cheerful, but keep the space open enough to allow for free flow of conversation and moving about the room or outdoor area.
