If you’re about to have a party at your home, you’ve certainly got a lot of planning to do. There are number of things you’ll need to consider in order to have a successful event. Of course, at the forefront of your to-do list should be decorations.
With this in mind, consider the following key decorations that are going to definitely make your party or event one to remember for the whole neighborhood.
1. Twinkle Lights
Lighting is necessary for any party that’s going to take place after the sun goes down, but what type of vibe do you want for this party? If you want things to be elegant, cozy and cool, twinkle lights are your new best friend. Plus, they’re a decoration that’s fairly inexpensive. You can even use a string of old Christmas lights for this decoration.
Your first question probably about what exactly bunting is. Actually, this decoration is quite an old one. Bunting is a string decoration that has a string or wire with many pieces of fabric of paper connected to it. Often, each piece of fabric or paper attached to the decoration is in the shape of a triangle, square or rectangle. And often, each one has a letter on it to create a word or phrase such as “Happy Birthday!”
3. Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers will never do you wrong as a decoration for your party or event. If you’re on a budget, just find some cheap flowers to intersperse among greenery and other foliage. You can even use wild flowers from the side of the road!
4. Chinese Paper Lanterns
Typical of Asian decoration, paper lanterns add a calming and ethereal quality to any party setting. You can find these types of lanterns online or at party stores. Consider getting different shapes and sizes. They are rather inexpensive and can be used many times. Just make sure to light them with lightbulbs and not candles as this can be dangerous and cause fires.
5. Ribbons and Bows
Depending on the type of party you’re having, ribbons and bows may fit in perfectly. For example, a girly party like one for someone’s bridal shower is perfect for these types of decorations.
At almost any type of party, candles are the perfect addition to your supply of decorations. Candles can be cheap but look classy as well, which can turn a drab party into a must-attend affair. Consider going for candles in all one color. If elegance is your goal, white or off-white candles will never do you wrong.
Consider all of these decoration options for your next party and watch the style factor go up immediately!
