Step 1: Invitations

Buying cute invitations to tell your friends about your birthday party is always a good option but making DIY invitations gives it a more personal touch! Depending on the theme or color scheme of your party, decorate your invitations to match and give your guests an idea of what to expect!

Step 2: Decorations

One of the easiest DIY decorations is a colorful tassel garland. Just pick out a few colors of tissue paper and follow the instructions on how to cut them to create the prettiest wall  – plus, it will look good even after the party is over! Dipping plastic cups in some glitter and confetti is a cute way to turn a boring cup to fun and festive. If you’re going with a glitter theme, fill clear balloons with confetti for added wow factor!
