Trending Party Decorations For 2018

The one trend that is huge in 2018 for parties and weddings is balloons.  Today I am sharing what’s new in all my shops for the Easter season but also so many other great decorations for birthday parties and weddings for this year.

Be sure to scroll below for all the new items available in my shops.

So of course balloons have always been a traditional decoration at birthday parties but this year the key to adding balloons to your next event is in creative set up and balloon styling and also finishing them with balloon tails and streamers.

Instead of balloons as an added decoration- they have become the feature of the party and the entire backdrop, like this set up above.  This balloon design was created with a balloon arch kit.  You can pick these arches up at most local party stores but if you are going for something this big – I highly recommend hiring an event planner.  They have the know how and the skills to set this up and help you pull off a stunning event.

TISSUE TASSELS and tassel garlands are also still in style this year!

Also if you missed last week’s post about trending giant paper flowers used to create stunning backdrops and photo backgrounds, click here to see it – FLOWER BACKDROP IDEAS

Balloons are not only popular at birthday parties and baby showers – they are making a come back at bridal showers and weddings as well.  Most are used for backdrops around the cake serving table or other food tables at the reception but also they are trending for photo backgrounds for the indoor and outdoor weddings as a fun activity for all the wedding guests to participate.  Balloons at weddings should have a more elaborate and elegant design staging.

Since balloons are hugely popular this year, I have added many new balloons – marble balloons and giant size balloons are hot right now and I now offer all kinds of balloon tails, balloons streamers and finishes designs for balloons.  Click here for all my balloon options in my shop – BALLOONS

So many new designs added for birthday parties too!  Click on the links below to check them out-









These have just been added to the shop – ready to hang party table backdrops in custom made colors for a colorful CREPE PAPER STREAMER BACKDROP that will coordinate to any event!  These come already made, nice and neat – ready to be hung up!

Easter is almost here, so don’t let it sneak up on you!  Can you believe Easter is only two weeks away?  Oddly it falls on April Fool’s Day too!  If you are hosting the family for an Easter brunch or dinner I have lots of fun Easter favors, tableware, and home decor!  Click on any of the links below to check out any of the Easter items in my shops-

Paper Flowers At Your Next Event

I am in LOVE with paper flowers right now and all the amazing decorations that can be created with them at weddings, parties and all kinds of events.  Check out this stunning paper flower backdrop above created with lots of sizes and styles of these handmade flowers.

I’m actually getting ready to add lots of new paper flower kits in my Etsy craft shop- READY SET CRAFT KITS in the next two weeks!  Like all the flowers shown here –

Right now I am just offering the 12 inch size Dahlia flower (pointed petals shown in gold) and the much smaller 3.5 inch flowers (shown in dark plum with the yellow center) but I’ll be offering all these styles and sizes very soon!

How clever is this set up for a unicorn party!  A large scale unicorn backdrop was created behind the party table and it makes such a big statement, no other party background decor is needed!

These big flowers make an amazing statement in the home too as wall decor.

The smaller size flowers are perfect for adding to gift boxes, favor bags, napkin rings and so many more ideas for using them at your next event!

They look great on TULLE BALLOONS too as a nice finishing touch and I even offer this as an add on item in my shop for all my balloons!

I love this clever idea too- a row of small flowers added on top of crepe paper on the back of chairs.

So many creative crafty ideas with rolled flowers too – like making flower covered wood cut shapes or letter monograms as art for the home.

Even adding paper flowers to a frame and creating a quick art display or gift for a friend is beautiful.

Hoop art is trending right now too and the paper flowers would look stunning on a wood or metal hoop and so easy to make these hanging hoop wreaths!

No matter where you use them at your next event, they will make an amazing statement at your next celebration.

Stop by my craft shop soon for my paper flower styles coming soon – READY SET CRAFT KITS

Wedding Balloons & Party Balloons

In case you haven’t heard, tulle wrapped balloons are the hottest trend right now at baby showers and birthday parties!  They make a stunning statement but are also a soft touch at any event – even weddings. These would look great in any wedding color scheme flanking each end of the wedding cake table or a row of them behind it.  Stop by my shop, The Party Fetti Shop, for a set of three tulle balloons!

The tulle balloons can either be floated, as long as a large 24″ or 36″ size balloon is helium inflated, or they can be added to sticks to create an adorable table centerpiece.  I love this baby shower tulle balloon centerpiece below with a teddy bear added.  I also offer the tulle cut pieces just for the balloons sold separately too as an add-on, as long as balloons are purchased from my shop, along with other finish options for your balloons – HERE

I have also added many new balloon tail options to the shop including these stunning tulle tails –

Giant balloons and tissue tassel garlands and tissue balloon tails are still trending this year for both wedding photos and anywhere at birthday parties and baby showers.

Giant confetti balloons are still a huge hit at any event too and our shop offers exclusive custom colors for your confetti- lots of colors to choose from in our menu options!

The tassels look stunning added to balloons for wedding photos or bright mixed rainbow colors would be great at a unicorn party, a mermaid party or a fiesta birthday party.

Stop by The Party Fetti Shop for all things RAINBOW and FIESTA!

Add some pinwheels from my other shop, Pinwheel Pretties, in any coordinating colors to your wedding or birthday party for a little spinning fun!
