Party Decorations for those special birthdays
|So you've got the date in the diary for your loved one's party and now it's time to put some detail to it. Party decorations can add lots of fun to the day and give the event its own mark. The question is, where do you start?|
Types of party decorations
Well, there's balloons, bunting banners, swirling decorations you hang from the ceiling, confetti you sprinkle around the table, paper lanterns, tablecloths, candles, paper napkins, birthday cake candles and cake decorations, paper plates, foil centrepieces, large tissue pompoms, Happy Birthday banners you string across a wall or above a doorway, even cupcake toppers. These can come in different colours, in one colour, with varying themes, with the number of birthday's the person has had - so lots of choice.
Tips to think about when planning party decorations:

Health and safety
**Please don't release balloons or Chinese/sky lanterns**.
So please find another way to celebrate. You could have a tree or bush planting ceremony, with your guests gathered around and the birthday person having the digging the first hole, with all the guests having a little dig thereafter so everyone has their share of planting. Trees and bushes will last far longer than a balloon or sky/Chinese lantern release or fireworks, and the birthday person will always have a momento of their party! Tree2mydoor.com
These are just a few tips to think about when planning your party and choosing party decorations - it's not an inclusive one, but hopefully it will help :-) Have a good time!
