If you’re artistic, making your own party decorations can be extremely fun and cost-efficient. On the other hand, if you’re pressed for time, celebration supply stores and online discount celebration supply sites can be a real blessing.
To make things even easier, some celebration rental services bring all the actors, party decorations and backdrops for you, if you’re willing to pay for it. After setting your budget, we can examine the various options.
First, choose a theme for your party decorations. Some possible ideas for an adult theme celebration include: luau, western, circus, safari, Hollywood, 1950s, Roaring 20s, disco, space, pirate, sports, Las Vegas, Arabian Nights, medieval times, Mardi Gras, Spanish fiesta, rock and roll or futuristic.
Kids often enjoy character and pop culture themes, like: Spiderman, Pirates of the Caribbean, Bob the Builder, Dora the Explorer, Finding Nemo, Pokemon, Harry Potter or American Idol.
If you’re interested in making your own decorations for a kids party, Coolest-kid-birthday-parties is a great resource. For example, with an undersea theme, you can follow step-by-step instructions on making a Finding Nemo pinata, a shark mouth standee to take photos next to and seashell party invitations. In addition to decoration ideas for various themes, the site also has food and activity tips.
If you’d rather purchase items, Party City is a great store where you can get accent themes like: disco, rock and roll, luau, movie night, fiesta, casino and western.
If you’re throwing a fiesta, you can buy decorations like: chili pepper garland ($ 2.29), scene setters ($ 5), cut-outs ($ 3 – $ 10), chili pepper lights ($ 10), an inflatable cactus ($ 5), a maraca centerpiece ($ 3), an inflatable sombrero cooler ($ 13) and a pinata ($ 10 – $ 20).
You might also want to check online at Orientaltradingpost for similar items. They have twelve assorted inflatable items for $ 20 in the fiesta theme and great deals on bulk celebration favors.
Tableware and partyware add a nice touch to a theme party, often functioning as additional party decorations; however, the cost of these items can be exorbitant.
Most vendors sell plates in packages of eight, which is fine for intimate gatherings, but can be a nightmare if you’re having fifty plus people attending. Partysupplydirect has similar deals for partyware but more selection.
A budget-conscious solution if you’re not looking to spend $ 100 in partyware would be to purchase solid-color plates and cutlery but buy a couple of themed serving dishes, tablecloths and straws at half the cost. Another good way to stay on budget is to split expenses with other people and delegate partyware purchases.
While it is the most expensive option, hiring Premier Casino Events to provide the celebration decorations for you could be an elaborate and all-in-one, stress-free way to throw your celebration.
If you were throwing a Halloween one, not only would the company bring fog machines, coffins, cobwebbed park benches, trick mirrors and cemetary gates, but they would also bring casino games, ghoulish actors, music and food to entertain your guests for a full four hours as well!
Looking online for party decorations is a good way to brainstorm ideas. You may choose to make a few things yourself, like a pinata, or you may purchase decorations from a store.
Try to make your purchases thoughtful and don’t waste money on things you’ll never use again. Delegating responsibilities to co-planners can also help you cut costs and share the excitement with friends, especially when it comes to a surprise birthday party!
