Party Decoration Tips For More Awesome and Cheap

unduhan-10Sometimes your wrapped presents and gifts make the best party decor. Maybe you’ve created some amazing homemade gifts and after wrapping them you realize that they are just too pretty to hide in a box. Or perhaps you’ve found a deal on some great gift wrapping and realize how nice it would look on your party table.  If you’re hosting a party and are planning on handing out party favors or gifts, why not incorporate it into your home decor? Here are some great gifts that do double duty as both gift and decorating, perfect for any party you plan on hosting!

Candles & Votives

A great party favor or gift is the gift of a homemade candle or personalized votive candle holder. There are so many easy tutorials to follow online (try this one for a spiced-scented homemade candle). Or skip the candle making and stick to a pretty votive holder that you can craft yourself. Place the candles or votives on a mirrored tray (which is especially spectacular once they are all lit), on top of candlesticks (to help add height) or at each place setting.

Ornaments

An ornament, either handmade or store bought, makes a great party gift but can also help dress up your table. Place one at each place setting, or personalize it and use it as a place card. Another idea might be to group the ornaments together in a pretty bowl or hang them on ribbon. Of course this idea is perfect for the winter holidays however it could also be fun for other holidays likeValentine’s Day, Halloween or a family reunion.

Flowers & Plants

If you love decorating with flowers you probably already fill your kitchen, dining room or entryway with a bouquet. But flowers make great gifts as well. Individual buds can be handed out when the party is done, or if you’re hosting for a particular person, like a birthday party, why not wrap up your centerpiece and gift it. Another flower-centric idea is to have each guest bring one flower stem, place it in a vase, and gift the whole bouquet to the guest of honor. This is a great idea for mother’s day or a special birthday. Or if flowers aren’t what you’re looking for, a few succulents in a mason jar (like this one) make for an instant centerpiece gift for your guests.

Food Gifts

Some of us love to make cookies, candy, or other edibles and give them as gifts during special holidays. Creating a unique package design is part of the fun, so why not create a food gift that can double as centerpiece or table setting decor? Place one gift at each place setting or pile them high on a cake stand or platter. Grouped en masse this type of gift can really be a showstopper in your home. Need ideas? Try this sugar cookie gift sack, salted caramel hot chocolate gift, or try any of these homemade edibles here.

Frames & Personalized Gifts

A pretty picture frame is always an excellent piece of home decor but can also serve as a gift too. When hosting a birthday party or anniversary party, consider DIYing a frame that holds a photo of the guest(s) of honor. Or take a cue from a common feature at a wedding and have each guest sign around the photo on the paper mat. There are so many other ways to incorporate personalized gifts into your entertaining decor like mugs, napkin rings, napkins, or even apersonalized journal.
