Everyone loves a party. But what gives a party more life are the decorations, nothing says ‘party’ like the decor strung about for the occasion. Here are some great ideas for your next party decorations.

Hang or pin balloons up on the wall using double-sided sticky tape. Many party ideas generally include balloons since they are easy to use. Even twisting and manipulating long balloons can create fun characters to decorate with.


  • Ribbons are another way to dress up a party. Crimped, tissue paper ribbon is known as ‘streamers’ work well when twisted with another color at the center then hung at different corners of the ceiling. The ribbons are long enough to even make a decorative centerpiece.
