Party decorations can either be really over the top (and really expensive), or they can be affordable yet still have an impact on the party itself. Most people who are throwing a party want party decorations that will leave their guests with an impression, but don’t cost an arm and a leg. Here are four simple party decorations that will help pull your shindig together.
1. Banners Or Garlands
Deck the walls and the ceiling with banners or garlands to immediately set the stage for a party. Whether you’re having a birthday party, a wedding or baby shower or a holiday party, a coordinating banner or garland will define the space for the party and create the mood.
2. Coordinating Tablescapes
Almost all parties have food involved. At casual parties, the food usually goes on display on a table somewhere easily accessible so guests can mingle and sample the far. At formal parties, the dinner is usually served at a traditional dining table setting. Either way, party decorations that include coordinating tablescapes will make a huge impact on the look and feel of your party. Choose a high quality tablecloth and set the table with coordinating tableware. Use the color scheme of your party when creating your tablescape to keep your party looking polished.
3. Chair Decorations
If you’re hosting a formal party, a chair cover is in order, but if you’re going casual, a simple ribbon or well placed, small flower bouquet will also work. Use your imagination and get creative with things that you can tie to the chairs at your party to coordinate with your tablescape.
Unless you’re having a very sophisticated and formal party, balloons can be a fun and colorful addition to your party decorations. Tie several balloons together and place each “balloon bouquet” at a strategic place in the party area to add the finishing touch to your party.
While it’s easy to let party planning get overwhelming, if you keep the party decorations simple and affordable, you can still make an impact on your guests without adding additional stress or cost.
