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

 If you have a summer birthday, barbecue, or any event coming up . . . why not use those red, white and blue decorations and deck out your celebration with what you have on hand? Most of what you may have in your stash of stars and stripes patriotic decor can be pulled into a nautical party.

The crepe paper streamer table backdrop at this party is so easy to create. Just cut and hang in straight strips.

Anchors and sailboats are the dominate decor at this nautical first birthday party!

This is a great set up with lots of stripes and sand dollars and don’t forget the straws.  Don’t forget if you have some beach decor around the home, those make perfect props at a nautical party table- like the giant anchor, lifesaver, and lighthouse at this party above.

This ahoy party features great balloon styling!  Those columns of balloons flanking the table make a stunning statement.

Be sure to visit my Pinterest balloon board for more balloon diy ideas.

This adorable nautical baby shower in a “Welcome Aboard” theme in soft pastel blues is perfect for a little baby boy on the way!

Hope these nautical parties have inspired you to start planning your next event!
