Birthdays are always worth celebrating. Whether it’s a first birthday, a thirteenth birthday or perhaps a milestone birthday in your adult years like a 40th, they’re all worth celebrating in style. One of the best ways it to plan a wonderful party with some brilliant birthday decorations. Here are some of our favourite ideas.
Who’s Birthday Are You Celebrating?
One of the first things to pin down is the type of decorations the birthday boy or girl will enjoy. They may have a favourite colour which you can easily theme your décor around. They might have a hobby or obsession that you can factor into your theme. From superheroes to pretty in pink, you can easily buy various different types of birthday decorations but so often they can be expensive.
To have real impact at your party, add loads of colour. From birthday banners to the icing on the cake, splashes of colour help to transform a venue, whether its your dining room or a church hall. Blues are traditional for baby boy parties, pink for baby girls, but people have different favourite colours. 50 shades of yellow could be a beautiful spring time theme for a birthday celebration in March. How about a purple birthday, with coloured paper streamers and even purple coloured food? Create a rainbow of colour to celebrate this awesome birthday in style.
Balloons & Backdrops
It wouldn’t be a birthday without balloons but there’s so much more you can do with them aside from just scattering them on the floor. Have you thought about creating your very own balloon drop? Hang a net from the ceiling so half of it can easily be released, letting balloons fall all around. The perfect celebration! Why not inflate them with helium so they float? That way you can create your own birthday backdrop full of colour, perfect for celebratory selfies.
Have you thought about creating your own centrepieces? Get some cheap vases from a charity shop, a bunch of flowers and pop an individual flower into each vase. For a colour pop, simply add water to each vase and drop before dropping in different coloured food colouring. You’ve made yourself a rainbow! Alternatively you could dip the bottom half or third of each vase into different coloured paint. They’re easy and personal birthday decorations which add atmosphere to your event.
Glitter & Glamour
Sticking with the vase theme, dunk them in glitter and pop a candle in. That flickering candle will add some real atmosphere to the venue, especially on dark days or during the evening. Add some simple. Paste some glue onto balloons and sprinkle glitter over them to make your own sparkly balloons at a fraction of the price of shop bought ones.
Above all, be sure that you have amazing birthday fun. Making memories and celebrating birthdays is so important in the hustle and bustle of our super-speedy lives. Prepare well, take plenty of photos and enjoy creating a fantastically fun celebration with those brilliant birthday decorations. Don’t forget a birthday gift too!
