Choosing the right theme
Decorating for a birthday party at home can be exhaustive. However, if you have set your mind and heart on a particular theme, then you have done half the job. There are plenty of fun birthday décor themes that you could choose from. Go for a rainbow-coloured backdrop, especially if your child is obsessed with colours.
From the birthday decorations, birthday cake to the balloons – everything will be out of the same rainbow colours. In decorating the walls, you can have colourful garlands cut out strips of crepe paper of the seven rainbow colours. Now twist them to create a spiral garland. Hang them from the walls. If your child loves a particular cartoon, make the character a central part of the theme. Decorating a birthday table is an integral part of the festive occasion. For birthday party decorations you can also keep party hats, gift boxes and stuffed animal toys on the table.
No need to hire an event management company to set up the birthday décor at home. You can easily do it your own with a dash of creativity. Without balloons there is no birthday party. First things first, you can take the birthday celebrations to the next level by installing a balloon arch on the entrance. Here is a step-by-step guide to put up a balloon arch.
You need two-coloured balloons such as blue and purple balloons. Blow air into four balloons and make quad balloon sets. String them together using a curling ribbon. Once that is done, place it on the entrance. You can also hang the drop down name of the birthday girl or boy from the balloon arch.
Setting the backdrop
For organising a successful birthday party, you need to set up the centre table where the cake will be cut. The backdrop of the cake cutting ceremony is of vital importance. Everyone starts clicking photos. You can go for pastel pink, blue and teal dots on a white fabric. Paste these dots to give a glamorous touch to the decor.
Shimmery fabrics are also quite popular among birthday parties for children. Create a shimmery wall behind the main table for an Instagram-worthy backdrop. Hang the birthday banner using ribbons. You can also write the name of the birthday person if the party is meant for an adult or write the year if it is a kid’s birthday party.
A photo booth
Photo booths are always an excellent entertainment option with guests. Everyone wants to click a photo or two at birthday parties to save good memories to cherish later. If it is a kid’s birthday party, you can add a fun banner, some cute props such as cars, rockets and fairies for kids.
Create a sparkling backdrop with foil curtains that you can easily purchase from any gift store. If you are a DIY-er then make several garlands out of tinsel, golden foil or crepe paper for a sparkling and dazzling backdrop. Adding some lights to the backdrop create the extra glow you need.
Want to give a fabulous décor to your birthday set up? Use glitter for some dazzle! Once all the balloons are filled with air, stick them in glue and roll them in glitter. When you hang them together, they give a shimmering effect that looks stunning, especially if you host the birthday party at night.
Make flower balls or honeycomb balls out of crepe paper and use them as drop-down hangings. This is a perfect birthday décor for a kid’s party. Fill a balloon with colourful confetti and hang them from the ceiling so that when the kids try to prick it with a needle once the party is over, the confetti is showered on everyone – a mark of festive celebrations. Paper flowers or stars hanging from the ceiling also look magical.
So, these were some of the best birthday decoration ideas that you must try at home. Make sure your living room or the big hallway has ample space for all the guests you invite. Keep a separate table where you can keep all the gifts, which add up to the overall festivities.
