How To Decorate Your Home For Parties, Without Going Broke!

Last updated on July 19th, 2022

Your less-than-perfect home decor can put a damper on your mood when you are having a party. You look at your furniture and wall decor with a critical eye and wonder how you are going to pull it off. 

But hey, don’t throw in the towel just yet. You don’t need to give your home a revamp. All you need to do is liven things up with a bit of this and a bit of that. The results will knock your socks off. If you want to know more about these party decor tips, read on. 

Let your crockery amp up the look

It’s not always about bone china crockery or silverware. Yes, they are elegant and classy. But you don’t have to go that route. Instead, try a medley of vibrant-colored crockery to bring the element of quirkiness to your home. It’s about finding perfection in what’s imperfect. 

For an element of mischief, let a stuffed toy chit-chat with the plates and the dry flower arrangement on your console.

Add-ons? You can tie stain ribbons to your napkins. Or how about jute string napkin holders? You be the judge.

Light it up

There is nothing quite like lighting to give your home a warm and welcoming vibe. Fairy lights are a never-fail solution. When you use subdued lighting in your home, your party guests will probably not notice the upholstery that has seen better days. 

Add-ons? How about stuffing old beer or whiskey bottles with fairy lights? Just scatter them near your power outlets, and they will do a wonderful job.

Go natural

This super inexpensive tip can elevate your party decor with almost no effort. Anything works. Let your stole or a sofa throw dominate the scene on your dining table. There is order in disorder too! The ‘haphazard’ stole on the table will set the stage. Embellish with dried flowers, candles, or even small pumpkins. 

Add ons? A bowl of walnuts in their shells? Or how about some pine cones or jute embellishments? You get the picture. 

Do it with candles

A candlelit room is to die for. The staid placement of candles on your table or mantelpiece is unimaginative and boring. You can try housing them in quirky cane or metal lamps or dot the corners with strategically placed clusters of candles. Play with candle stands, or put the candles at different heights for better impact. 

Add-ons? Go for color themes or pair the candles with fairy lights for a magical experience. 

Set an elegant table

Go creative with your table setting. Start with a tablecloth or a runner. Crumpled net makes a great runner and can be used to place bubbles such as shells, stars, or dried flowers. Candles are a beautiful addition. 

Add-ons? A vine or creepers as a runner for an intriguing element? Or maybe a vase of fresh flowers in complementary colors? You decide.

Take it outside

Nature has a great decorating knack. You can’t beat the beauty of the gnarled branches or the lushness of the green foliage. And with a starry sky as your ceiling, your decor is complete. So, make use of your garden if you have one.

If you don’t have an open space, the terrace or your balcony will work too. 

Add-on? Fairy lights and paper lanterns. Your friends won’t forget your party in a hurry.

Balloons can be great style statements too

When decorating with balloons, select a theme to add charm to the party decor. 

Use load-bearing strings to station your balloons in strategic places if you want a mature decor. Balloons placed in clusters in cane baskets can make great ‘floral arrangements’ too. 

Add-ons? Try paper-cut streamers to drape your windows with. Go for snow-white heart shapes for a subdued and elegant look.
