Decor has to be my favorite part about any event. Add all things pink and sparkly and you have my attention! Choose decor that fits the personality of the birthday girl and fits your budget. Think creatively you'd be surprised by what you can create with a glue gun and a trip to your favorite thrift store.
pick a theme!
Yes, you've decided to have a Princess theme party, but within your theme decor has endless possibilities. Disney has made every type of Princess theme possible. Depending on the child's personality and her favorite princess your theme can be as simple or outrageous as you decide.
Me I'm over the top with themes and decor. My motto, "Your child has 1 birthday a year, make it count!"
Here are some inspiring parties!
Setting the table
Whether it's your food, gift, or main table this is an area where you can really play up your theme. There are tons of clever budget friendly tricks you can incorporate.
Table Covers. If you're an event planner or have many years of birthday parties to come I would suggest that you purchase some decent table clothes that will last for years to come. My favorite vendor is LinenTableCloth.com. They have great prices and excellent customer service. An alternative is purchasing plastic table covers, these are great for one time use and are very inexpensive. Visit my store for some great deals and selections. I'd suggest that you buy multiple coordinating colors that can be used for swagging and draping in addition to table covering.
Forks, plates, cups, spoons, knifes, oh my! Choose cutlery and place settings to coordinate with your event's theme and color palette. For an really elegant touch purchase gold or silver flatware.
TIP*** A really neat trick for customizing your cups is to purchase clear cups in bulk (we all know how many cups kids use at parties) and apply matching stickers or tattoos to each cup. For extra durability cover the stickers with a coat of modge podge.
Time to let the magic happen! Now it's time for your creativity and imagination to flow. Your table centerpiece and accents can be as elaborate or as simple as you choose. You can add table runners, boas, tulle, confetti, ribbons, and more to your table as a back drop to your centerpiece. For a centerpiece be creative! Store bought pop-up or cardboard centerpieces can work, but you are planning the Ultimate Princess Party!
