Imagine a birthday party without balloons. Andd...imagine only one focal point, one beautifully decorated corner...one single, gorgeous, colourful buffet table or dining table. Think of how easy that would be to pull off yourself. I really love party decorations but I don't like to be overwhelmed by them. One glorious spread is enough in my opinion.
Take a look at these beautiful tables for a girly party...or a very feminine bridal shower...
Almost all of these decorations are hand made. You really do not need to be Martha Stewart to be able to make tissue pompoms or colourful streamers. Just collect different pieces of tissue paper when you see ones you like and go on Youtube to find a tutorial on how to make pompoms from tissue paper or tulle. Some people even use different types of fabric...A little imagination + a "decoration making arts and crafts session" with the birthday girl (and her friends) will create great results.
The real trick is to be able to decide on a colour scheme when there are so many to choose from. I cannot wait until my daughters outgrow "character" birthday parties where everyone eats off of Elsa or Minnie Mouse's face.
