Front Entry Party Decorating

FRONT ENTRANCE DECORATING IDEAS

We all know how much we love to decorate our exterior home entrance for the holidays, especially for Halloween, Christmas and for Easter – this entry above is stunningly arranged with flowers and Easter decor for a welcoming spring front door.

What about for a birthday party? Why not welcome your guests to the home party or summer barbecue with some color and signage.  Today I am sharing some ideas for getting your front door and exterior entrance ready for your spring or summer party, holiday celebration or even just a backyard barbecue.

This cheerful balloon wreath is ideal for greeting guests for a first birthday!

Last year I added some fun custom made to order signs to my shop just for hanging on the front door to greet party guests – but these are great on wood poles or hanging on the side fence for backyard parties too-

If you are planning a party, add some colorful decor to your front entrance, even something as basic as a hanging sign or a birthday wreath on the door, can help guests find your home and the party!

I personally love some helium inflated colorful balloons, flanking the door, like this set up above. Balloons are an inexpensive way to decorate and just a few will go far with making a statement at your front entry.

Even this very humble set up of only three balloons tied to some wood cut and painted O-N-E letters for a first birthday makes for a grand entrance.  Confetti balloons are trendy right now too and would make the prefect entrance, with two big over-sized giant 24″ or 36″ size balloons flanking the front door! These big balloons are visible from the street and definitely help guests know they are in the right place for the party.

Of course, if you have the means and really want to impress your guests – why not go all out like this party above or with many more balloons, similar to the balloon entrance below-

A fun sign at the end of your driveway or sidewalk to your entrance are also ideal for directional signage and to help guests locate your house for the party.

I love these two clever signs, above for the Pirate themed party and the Dr. Seuss handmade sign for a first birthday party, shown below.

Whatever theme or type of party you are throwing at your home this spring and summer- be sure to decorate your front entrance with some color or signage to welcome your guests as the come through your home’s front door.

Summer Party Ideas With Pinwheels

SUMMER PARTY IDEAS

Today I am sharing some of the parties where our custom pinwheels and other handmade party decorations have been featured.  I am loving this watermelon themed party with our added pinwheels and hanging fans to the garage door- which was used as the table backdrop.  Very clever!

Rainbow Pinwheels

One of my favorite parties featured our rainbow pinwheels as cupcake toppers and our polka dot cupcake/candy cups as a cupcake tower.  How fun and bright!

Some of our circus pinwheels at a first birthday party.  Nice arrangement with our pinwheels, the photos and the one wood block number.

And another circus party outside in a park. This mom arranged our circus pinwheels in glass jars filled with candy and lollipops.

Another first birthday party used our larger size pinwheels as the table backdrop – lined up and towering over the other decorations.

At another event – our pinwheels were  arranged to create a mini garden by standing them up in some moss covered foam.

These are all great ideas for adding some spinning whimsey to your next party, holiday celebration or any event!
