Decorating for a party (1)

Decorations have always been an important aspect of any party – party ornaments allude a cheery ambience and add a celebratory vibrancy to the entire room. Let’s explore some fabulous birthday party decorations ideas.

These ‘lollipops ’ do downright look cheery – definitely a big hit with the kids.

Materials required:

  • Latex balloons
  • Plastic wraps (from bookstores)
  • Wrapping paper / aluminium foil tubes
  • Clear sticky tape

Detailed step-by-step can be found here.

The “most challenging” material on the list is the wrapping paper / aluminium foil tube. You may have to start asking friends to ‘keep’ those tubes for you. As the tubes may come in beige (as with most of the aluminium foil tubes), you may want to consider painting the tubes white.

Alternatively, craft shops like Artfriend or Spotlight may sell these tubes.

Of course, using the standard balloon holders is also a possibility – no doubt the holder is much thinner and flexible than a wrapping paper tube, we have utmost faith that you, can be creative enough to work your way around the ‘problem’.

From the same authors as Balloon lollipop, these wall candies are as sweet as they sound. Fact is, they may even bring back quite some nostalgic memories for some of us adults.

Materials required:

  • Coloured plastic plates
  • Plastic wraps (from bookstores)
  • Clear sticky tape / ribbons

Detailed step-by-step can be found here.

If you want to give it a little 3D twist, then replace the coloured plastic plates with balloons.

See how well it was done here by Celebrate the Big and Small.
