Are you planning to throw a birthday party and are looking for an alternative to conventional options? If you have a garden, then it’s the perfect place to gather your friends and family and the good news is that you don’t have to spend a lot of time and money organising the get-together. With the right tools and enough creativity, you too can transform your garden into the perfect oasis for your birthday party, impress your guests and make many beautiful memories. The first thing you have to do is think of a theme and a main colour theme. Afterwards, it all comes down to choosing the right decorations. Here are some tips to get you started!
Use the magic of outdoor lighting
Most birthday garden parties go late into the night and when that happens you need to make sure that the lighting is just right. On the one hand, it needs to be bright enough so all the guests can see each other; on the other hand, it needs to match the theme of the party and create the perfect ambiance. If you do not have wall brackets, then you should definitely invest in some, because they are useful all year round, not just at birthday parties. You can visit sites like www.lightingatseasons.com to find a wide variety of vintage or modern wall lights. In addition to these main lighting pieces, you should also consider fairy lights. They come in all colours of the rainbow, they are easy to set up and create a magical atmosphere. Fairy lights are best placed in trees, or any bushes and plant pots that you have around the garden. If you have a larger budget or don’t mind splurging on the special day, then you can buy marquee lights shaped as letters and spell a message like “happy birthday” or the name of the birthday boy/girl.
Use balloons, ribbons and subtle accents
Who said you have to spend a lot of money to decorate? By using subtle décor items, such as balloons and ribbons, you can emphasise the theme of the party and create a festive atmosphere in a matter of minutes and it will not cost you more than a couple of pounds. Balloons can be placed at the garden entrance, shaped like an archway. For best results, stick to one, two balloon colours at most. As for ribbons, they make excellent chair decorations. The ones made of pastel fabric are very affordable and you can re-use them later, including indoors.
