When it comes to decorating birthday party tables, only your imagination can limit you. No matter what your party budget is, you can create innovate, eye-catching centrepieces and place setting decor. Consider the birthday celebrant's personal tastes and preferences, as well as the party theme, when designing the ideal table decorations.

Birthday Flowers

A specific type of flower represents each month, so honour the birthday celebrant by displaying hers as a table centrepiece. Choose the flowers, such as roses for a June birthday, carnations for a January birthday or asters for a September birthday. Display fresh or faux blooms, depending on your decor budget, in decorative vases. Pick a vintage crystal vase for an elegant look, or a hand-painted vessel for an eclectic style. Enhance guest place settings by placing single stems of the birthday flower in delicate bud vases; the vases can also serve as party favours.

Hobby-Inspired Centerpiece

Celebrate the birthday girl by creating a customised centrepiece to reflect her favourite hobby or interest. The honoree loves the beach, design table decor using seashells. Place a handful of vibrant sea glass pieces on the bottom of a large clear glass bowl. Fill the vessel with water and place floating white seashell-shaped candles on top. Delight a gardener with a galvanised watering pail filled with an assortment of wildflowers, tulips, hydrangeas or any other type of garden flower.

Sweet Chocolate Bar

Transform a birthday party table into a vibrant and tasty chocolate bar. Birthday celebrants of all ages appreciate the sweet gesture. Cover the table with a pastel candy-coloured cloth to set the stage for taste-tempting decor. Fill square containers with jelly beans and nestle sticks of rock candy inside. As an edible alternative to flowers, place conversation hearts in plant pots and insert whimsical rainbow-hued or flower-shaped lollipops into them. Use vintage glass apothecary jars to hold colourful gumballs and gumdrops. Place decorative paper bags by each guests' place setting and allow them to fill them with candy at the end of the party.
