This first decorating setup really creates charm at your event but is also stunning for a photo shoot.  Float helium balloons or confetti balloons behind your party table or as a photo background.  This setup works for both birthdays and wedding photo shoots and creates an enchanting whimsical effect!

 

This is an easy yet striking balloon decorating option and the best part is no  helium is needed- use a hand pump to inflate your balloons and then pin or tape them to the ceiling upside down in rows or randomly in a large bunch over the party table! This is such a effortless idea that will easily become the main focal point of  any party.

 

 

 Welcome your guests at your party by creating a dramatic escalating walkway of balloons leading to the front door.

 

 

Construct a balloon backdrop by covering an entire wall with balloons. This would look stunning behind a dessert bar or even as a photo booth background.

Balloon animals! Use tissue paper and double sided tape to add cute faces to the balloons and the light tissue paper won’t weight down the balloons.

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

Vintage Tea Party Bridal Shower

Bridal Shower In Vintage Tea Party Theme

If you are planning a bridal shower in the near future- I have the perfect shower theme to inspire you.  The vintage tea party theme is trending right now for bridal showers.  It’s classic and sophisticated.  Plus all the ladies can dress up and you can encourage all the guests to wear a big hat for the shower. Make it a true soiree with requested dress attire – you could even provide a box of vintage found hats for the guests to wear.  Today, I am featuring some amazing tea party tablescapes.

This is a fairly easy bridal shower theme to put together.  To keep it under budget- ask around to see if you can borrow a family member’s vintage china or visit a thrift store and buy a mash up of old tea cups and saucers.  Yep, a mix and match of china is absolutely fine for this set up and would even look stunning. Add in some vintage mason jars and vintage or new decorative tea pots for your flower vases.

To get the look of the vintage tea party you will want plenty of flowers and most set ups feature fresh roses in light pink and white and accents of baby’s breath.

Although, you can still pull off the look with silk flowers as well.  This shower above features silks glued around a painted decorative wood picture frame and it looks just as beautiful as fresh flowers.  Add in some elements of gold with gold candlesticks or gold plated utensils and of course don’t forget to drape pearls here and there.

Lace is a must for this theme. Use it as bunting, for your tablecloth and even draped it across frames and as a table backdrop. If you can’t find vintage lace linens- there is no shortage of new table linens in lacy patterns and designs – you can even use curtains in sheer lace fabric.  Paper doilies on all your plates will look so shabby chic too.  Most tea parties feature a sweets table but I recommend offering some healthy options too- such as strawberries and raspberries.

Ask the bride for some old photos of herself and the groom, either growing up as kids or the two of them together, and use them at the event.  Black and white is best (color photos can be professionally transitioned to black and white- or you can even photocopy color photos in black and white) and they can be added to picture frames or even hang them up as a bunting.

One last tip for the shower- bring in a bit of violet color in your flowers or shower decor.  This year’s color pick by Pantone is Ultra Violet and the tea party theme is perfect for adding in this shade of color. Be sure to spend some time asking the bride about her likes and dislikes for food and decor as well.  Add in a personal touch and surprise her.  Maybe she loves daisies or strawberry shortcake and would love that you remembered this and included it at her shower.

Come back next week to the The Party Fetti website – I will be featuring big balloons for weddings and for amazing photo shoot ideas!
