Creating a memorable party for your guests begins with well thought out party décor that will wow them as soon as they walk in. It can be difficult to think of party décor ideas that are inexpensive but look absolutely amazing. However, most people don’t realise that it is often the little features that will impress your guests the most and take your party decorations to the next level.
Discover these three simple ideas that can be used on their own or all together to create a beautiful party space. You don’t have to break the bank and can source most of these party supplies online.
Colour-themed Dessert Bar
If you are decorating for a wedding, kid’s birthday party or special event, transform the classic dessert table into something beautiful by setting a colour theme. Select one or two colours to ice your cakes, cupcakes, biscuits and brownies. You can also select complementing colours of coloured candy as well. This will then create a point of focus in the room. Next, choose two or three complementary colours of party decorations to accessories your dessert or candy bar for that “wow factor”.
Display your desserts in beautiful clear glass candy buffet jars, glass bottles and cake stands to really show off the colours. Using clear glass ensures that your colour arranging is seen to its full effect. Plus, getting a variety of jars, glass bottles and stands in different shapes and sizes also adds height and dimension to your dessert bar, making it a focal point of the room.
Lace décor has been popular as a wedding decoration for years. However, it can also add a subtle touch to your next party or event. Beautiful as a contrast to a bold colour or when used on its own, lace is a very versatile fabric that no longer only belongs to your grandmother’s doilies. When matched with jute fabric or coloured ribbon, brown kraft paper & lace is a simple decoration that will look beautiful at any baby shower, birthday party or wedding.
These days you can find fabric lace available in a variety of materials, widths and colours. Wider lace can be used as a lace table runner for a vintage touch to your centrepiece, used by itself or even placed over a larger table runner of a contrasting colour and material. Lace can also be used as a replacement for bunting flags or hanging decorations, that can hang above a door or your dessert table. Narrower lace ribbons are very effective in adding small detail to bonbonniere, wedding invitations and candy buffets and will make a lasting impression on your guests. Accent your hurricane candle holders or flower vases with lace ribbon.
Candles as a lighting source have been around forever but these days we use them to add to our evening party moods. So candles are all about how you style your event with them. Simple white votive and pillars candles look absolutely stunning when used in clear candle holders or glass jars and in large quantities. In saying this, don’t be afraid to add in a pop of colour too! We love the look and smell of lavender candles in particular. Quick tip: if you want your candles to last all day and night without having to watch them, opt for flameless candles! These are battery operated and can be used again and again.
For your next evening dinner party, place a row of candles (or flameless candles) down the centre of your table each in their own individual jar or glass bottle. They will throw off a romantic light over your dinner party and create a relaxing mood to your evening. If you would like to add some colour to your centrepiece, intersperse some flowers or greenery for a simple yet pretty addition (or other scented candles, like lavender candles).
