Planning the Decoration
Decide Who Your Guests Are
When you know who your guests are, you will be able to easily set colors, decorations, and a theme that will appeal to them. If they are children, you might need to consider bright colors, streamers, and balloons. If they are older, you might need to opt for a more sophisticated decoration with simpler colors. If it is a dinner party, you might need to focus on the tables with nice tablecloths, napkins, or plates.
Decide on the Occasion
Deciding on the kind of occasion ( in this case, a birthday) can help you chose the right colors and decorations. Since it is a birthday party, use the celebrants favourite color with white as a secondary color.
Choose the Theme
Choose a theme that the celebrant is interested in. This way the one throwing the party gets to have decorations that he/she loves. Better still, if you have issues with what you are interested in, go for a popular theme.

Know Your Budget

Cover your Tables
Use tablecloths, vases, and table runners to decorate the tables. You can scatter some confetti in the middle of the table if you don’t have a table runner. Finish your decoration with floral designs or arrangement on the center of the table.
- Decorate Doorways and Windows
You can decorate your windows and doorways with beautiful banners and pennants, using a clear tapeor tacks to hold them up.
Blow the balloons with helium or air and hang them around your home. The colour of the balloon should match the theme of your birthday party.
Plates, Napkins, and Cups
