Candles in Bowls
Fill glass bowls or pretty ceramic bowls with water and set floating candles on the water. The candles cast lovely shadows on a dimmed room, and if you use glass bowls, the reflections of glass through the water cast a soft light onto the table. These decorations are ideal for an elegant, quiet party. For a beach-themed party, fill a glass bowl with white sand and small seashells before setting tea lights in the sand.
For an elegantly simple decoration, string together garlands of origami cranes. Make the cranes yourself or purchase them. You may staple the cranes together from wingtip to wingtip, or you may use a large needle threaded with yarn to string them together. Paper cranes can be made out of white paper for a plain design or out of colourful paper for something more playful. Cranes can represent the wish for good years to come
Wrap your doors with colourful paper that declares "Happy Birthday." Use colourful wrapping paper to cover your front door, or any interior door where guests are allowed to venture. You can wrap a door just the way that you wrap a present, only it requires more wrapping paper. Glue bows to the door for an extra visual touch. You can use more subtle wrapping paper for a low key party or you can buy bright wrapping paper to make your birthday party more noticeable to your guests.
Light up your birthday party with white Christmas lights. Tape the lights up close to the ceiling for a subtle otherworldly effect or wrap strands of multicoloured Christmas lights around your furniture for a more whimsical effect. Choose lights that do not blink to avoid distracting your guests.
