Ideas For Party Decorations

Everyone loves a party! But what gives a party more life are the decorations, nothing says 'party' like the decor strung about for the occasion. Below are 10 great ideas for party decorations, and they're not too over the top either.

1. Balloons. These inexpensive, light objects can be manipulated and purchased in different colors and sizes to fit any party theme. Hang or pin balloons up on the wall using double-sided sticky tape. Many party ideas generally include balloons since they are easy to use. Even twisting and manipulating long balloons can create fun characters to decorate with.

2. Ribbons are another way to dress up a party. Crimped, tissue paper ribbon known as 'streamers' work well when twisted with another color at the center then hung at different corners of the ceiling. The ribbons are long enough to even make a decorative center piece.

3. Pinatas, generally a child's item, can also liven up a party. They can be filled with candy, small prizes, and gift cards then strung up over a branch or lever to be busted open for enjoyment.

4. Candles can also serve as a party decorations. More often, candles are used for adult or mature themed parties. Avoiding candles around children's parties is a good way to prevent a possible fire.

5. Theme oriented food. Most Halloween parties consist of themed foods like, graveyard decorated cakes, pumpkin frosted cupcakes, jello 'brain' cups, etc. Having themed oriented food can also help your decoration efforts.

6. Costumes are not only reserved for Halloween, but they can also be utilized to enhance the theme of the party anytime of the year. A 70's party may consist of groups of friends dressing in that style era. Even a child's party can implement costumes as a suggestion for the party. This can be enticing especially if there will be prizes handed out to the best costumes.

7. Plastic blow-up items are another way to decorate for a party. Some luau parties have blown up palm trees and tiki lamps to give the overall effect of being in the tropics. This can be accompanied by fruity mixed drinks, Hawaiian style food and music.

8. Music, while not an actual tangible decor, most certainly will liven up any party. Based on what your theme is, even children's parties, theme oriented music can enhance the feel of the party. Integrating a dance or dance contest with the music will attract more participants.

9. Lighting. Much like candles to a more formal social gathering, strobe lighting, spot lighting or even lamps can be used as illuminated decor for your gathering. Even solid or flashing Christmas lights can be used for decoration around the main event of your party.

10. Tableware is a party decor some people do over look. While it is fine to use generic table wear, decorative plates, napkins and silverware can enhance complete the look of your party. Having fine china present for a formal party works well; however, for a livelier party or child's party, decorative plates and napkins work better.

With the great ideas for party decorations above, your party will kick off with the excitement you hope to convey to your guests!
