If you enjoy entertaining and hosting for different occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, or dinner parties, you need to know how to set simple and elegant decor for any event. Keep in mind that light always appears pleasing in comparison to an overloaded decoration. Rather than going overboard with extra details, you should consider that elegance usually exists within simplicity. 

Whether you are hosting weddings, baby showers, and casual parties, or even a coffee gathering with a few close friends, a themed event should be neat and distinct. Picking the right confetti and other types of decor details are essential, especially in the area where guests will be spending most of their time. However, with these simple ideas mentioned below, we will start you off with learning how to prepare for these special moments. Once you have the basics together for your event, you can add in a few personal touches as well. 

Indispensable Decorations

No matter what type of celebration you are planning, there is one essential rule to be followed to ensure the success of the occasion. A party theme is always a great place to start when choosing the decoration for your event. So yes, the chosen theme and decor go hand in hand. 

It would be disappointing not to mention that a fresh floral arrangement is essential; it brightens up a table setting beautifully, as little as two to three centerpieces placed in the middle of the table will fill the room with color. Anchor the flowers in small containers with floral foam to keep them fresh. You could wrap a ribbon around the bottom of the container or paint on some glue and add glitter to hide the floral foam. 

Tabletops play an essential role in the design; they are perfect for decor and can be both functional and fun. Choose a matching or coordinating centerpieces to place on each table; you can use flowers in a sleek container or come up with a creative DIY centerpiece that goes with the theme. Let us say you want to impress your guests by going all out with a table design that should begin with the basics, which includes five standard flatware pieces and five standard dinnerware pieces.  

Set the Table to Impress

The key to choosing the right theme for an is thinking about what your guests would genuinely enjoy. Aim to select a theme that the duo will genuinely enjoy and that captures the personality or interests of the guests in some way. Determine whether the party will be held during the day or in the evening. Some themes are better suited to one or the other, while many work well for both. 

Table linens such as tablecloths, cloth napkins, table runners, and placemats are sure to add a more formal appearance. We all know forks go on the left and knives on the right but if you have a simple one fork and one knife set, you can either put one on each side or put them both on the left. Another great idea is to use photos from the couple’s wedding day and make a DIY Photo table runner and be more creative and fun. 

Birthday Parties

From princess jubilees to superhero parties, a great kids party is supposed to showcase loads of fun and excitement. There are various ways to make a stellar party for kids fun yet simple. For kids, it is all about the sweet and savory; yummy snacks are always a hit. So make sure you have those in variety. Does your little one love Batman? Would your daughter die to see the beloved characters from Frozen in real life? Kids are very predictable in this regard; bring their favorite characters to life by hiring a costume and playing the role, have music, balloons, and bold, colorful decorations.    

On the contrary, a sweet sixteen birthday party does not have to be daunting, but here are a few tips you can use; colorful, classic balloons clustered are a must-have. There are also tons of impressive options for high-quality foil balloons, including letters, numbers, and shapes, and designs of all kinds. A photo booth and photo props like sunglasses, wigs, funny hats, and mustaches are fantastic and fun to have at a sweet sixteen party. 

Summer Poolside Party Themes

Embrace scorching summer temperatures by throwing a tropical island style inspired party. We are thinking along the lines of “A weekend in Hawaii” or even “Caribbean Retreat”. Use a simple color pallet and incorporate tropical elements for a table spread that is both sophisticated and reminiscing of a fantasy island getaway. Dress yourself and your table in hula grass skirts, the natural raffia color makes the vibrant fuse of fresh plants and flowers pop. 

Elevate your party with fresh tropical plants by laying fresh leaves flat across the dinner table. Nothing says Hawaii like a gorgeous Lei, it is such a beautiful way of greeting your guests, and you can easily make a Lei neckless for yourself and your guests as a great take-home party favor. 

Romantic Dinner Parties

Creating an intimate setting for two (let’s say for your anniversary) with only a few decorative accessories is a great way to express the love in your relationship. Other intriguing decor ideas include placing a bottle of preferred wine or champagne in an ice bucket next to the table, which is something almost every restaurant does. Scattering rose petals around the table and placing a single rose on each plate is a lovely small splash of romantic decoration. 

An ocean-themed table setting is an excellent idea for a seafood dinner, a coastal home, summertime dinner, or only dinner for a few ocean lovers. A few centerpieces ideas include a shallow glass container filled with sand, seashells, and a few candles. A piece of driftwood with a few small shells glued on with little succulents surrounded by tiny stones found on the beach and a few candles will make for charmingly elegant decorations.
