Decorating For Idiots – Five Easy Party Decorating Tips
If decorating is not your strong suit, planning a party with all the bells and whistles can be a challenge, to say the least. When you think about all the details, like finding the right location, sending out the invitations, and hiring a caterer (or cooking yourself), it’s enough to make even the best hostess call in a professional party planner to handle all of the details.
But, you really don’t have to. From unique party favors to beautiful centerpieces, when it comes to decorating for your special event, you can use these tips to pull all the pieces together-even if you’re not an expert.
Use Centerpiece Sets: The latest thing in easy-decorating ideas, centerpiece sets include everything you need to create a beautiful table. Each kit comes complete with a professionally designed centerpiece, candles, flowers and other accessories to enhance your tables effortlessly. You don’t even have to think about what would complement the design because all the components are included-making your job a whole lot easier. Just choose a set that fits the theme.
Choose A theme: Whether you’re planning a children’s party or a bridal shower, selecting the theme for the function will help set the mood and unify the decorations. It also makes decorating much simpler, as you discover many ways to carry out the theme with items you may already have. Setting the decorating wheels in motion, a theme helps you to plan with confidence.
Make A Balloon Chandelier: Balloons and streamers are the familiar favorites of party decorations. Rarely will you walk into a party and not see them. But why not present them in a different way? Try creating a balloon chandelier by clustering about 6-7 balloons together and hanging the bunches from the ceiling like a chandelier. You can even run streamers from the cluster to the corners of the room for added affect.
Fill In With Furniture: A common mistake, many people line all the furniture up against the wall in an effort to create “space” for the party. But it really only makes the room appear empty and creates more space for you to decorate. Instead, position the furniture for conversation with sofas and chairs in small groups.
DIY Signs and Tablecloths: Especially for children’s parties, signs and tablecloths are a fun party accessory that you can easily make yourself. For casual events like luaus, barbecues, ice cream socials and picnics, create a personalized sign welcoming guests to the event. A few days in advance, roll out sheets of butcher paper that will be used as the tablecloths, and let the kids have fun decorating them with markers, crayons and stickers. You can also do the same thing with place mats.
With these simple tips, you can decorate your event in no time, creating a festive mood to be enjoyed by all.
