Planning a party is always a fun and interesting process but as interesting as it may be, it also tends to be time and energy-consuming. From the initial planning process of picking a date to the planning process of picking a color code, menu, perfect venue space and all other aspects of the party, all of these tend to get overwhelming at some point especially if your planning timeline is short. In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing out easy ways you can decorate for a party.
Have a Theme for the Party: when planning a party, it’s very important to pick out a theme for the party. Having a theme can help you easily sort out the decoration of the party because you are going to be planning the party around the theme, it makes it easy and less tasking.
Memory Making Spot: One of the most interesting parts of a party is the memories that you are able to create, which is why it’s important to factor in that fact when decorating for a party. One of the easiest ways to make provisions for this is to create a memory-making spot with your backdrop that will attract people to make memories with your party. You can go with the greenery backdrop with flowery designs or balloon designs. You can also make a nice inscription on the backdrop with your party hashtag. Another option can be a balloon backdrop with a nice color scheme or a flower color scheme. A balloon backdrop is a good idea for a children’s party, you can also do a nice character-themed backdrop with favorite cartoon characters for a children’s party. The goal here is to create a spot where beautiful memories can be documented.
Lighting: If you are having an outdoor party at night, making use of paper lanterns and candles can give you a beautiful lighting effect. You can also use them for indoor parties and daytime parties, you can make use of nice colorful paper lanterns depending on your color theme for the party, and you can also make use of artificial candles, preferably scent candles as part of your table setting décor. You can also make use of small white lighting bulbs to create a party banner.
Your Buffet Styling: Another easy way to decorate your party is to set up your buffet table with style. Arrange your edibles stylishly, you can arrange your edibles and finger foods in pyramid styles, you can style them in patterns, make use of fruit slices, make use of flowers, coordinate your buffet with a beautiful color scheme that pops, set up a champagne pyramid in with either glass cups or beautiful plastic cups, you can also set up a fruit pyramid. This gives your party a beautiful color pop.
Color Scheme: Your color scheme can also determine how beautiful your party will turn out to look. For a much easy and less stressful décor, for an indoor party, you can go for white as a base color and add a pop of bright colors with your buffet styling, lighting, balloons, flowers, and greenery. However, if you are having an outdoor party, you already have nature (green) as your base color, you can blend it in with elements of white, red, yellow, orange and any other color you that appeals to you.
Accessories: There are varieties of party accessories that you can use to spice up your party. You can make use of woven baskets, for your fruits and sweets. Create beautiful banners with balloons, flowers, make use of confetti, colorful personalized sashes, flower crowns, face masks. You can personalize the cups with the name of each guest, you can make use of sign-in boards with the picture of the celebrant where guests can sign in or write a beautiful comment about the celebrant. You can use all of these to create a fun party environment with ease.
Sitting Arrangement: You can also create a nice décor with the party sitting arrangement. You can arrange the chairs to form a letter, or a shape or even a word, depending on how large your party is. You can also decide to go for a floor seating style and do away with the chairs and tables, you can make use of floor pillows or floor mats to create a more cozy and fun environment for your party.
Create a Focal Point: if you are having the party for the purpose of celebrating someone, it’s important that you factor in the fact that you have to make the major spotlight of the day on the person. When decorating for the party, you can create a focal point that centers on the celebrant. You can make a beautiful sitting area with flowers and balloons, ensure that you personalize the space for the celebrant. However, if it is a get-together party or a reunion, you can decorate your backdrop spot as your focal point.
