How to build a budget for birthday decorations?

Choosing a perfect baby birthday decoration plan under a budget requires a thorough analysis of all involved aspects. Not just the immediately required things but the things you will need in the upcoming times, become part of a perfect decoration budget.

To skip all possible mistakes while drafting your budget, keep the following points in mind.

  • Give a top rank to all the elementary things in your budget plan such as venue charges (if booking instead of home celebration). Making your home "a great birthday party venue" will be even more friendly with your pockets.
  • Go through the trendy birthday themes and find the approximate charges to mention in the budget plan.
  • Now give priority to all the secondary elements that you want to embed into the birthday decoration.
  • Do not miss enjoying the discount advantages provided by the decoration stores, venue authorities, and the professional team hired for the decoration. It will help plan a "buck-saving" budget.
  • To save some of your hard-earned pennies while celebrating your kid's birthday, go for the brilliant DIY decor options. It will not only add a slight touch of personalization but also build a lifelong memory of the event.
  • Don't forget to include the items in the planning that you have already. It will drastically reduce the cost of the entire decoration.
  • While closing your budget draft, add some extra bucks for the impromptu demand of things.


Which venue will suit your kid the best for a birthday celebration?

The quite precise response of this query relies on the age factor, liking of the birthday kid and budget of the event. For babies ranging from 0 to 2 years, home is the most suitable venue for reliving all the memories built here on birthdays.

For children (3-10) years old, outdoor venues like public gardens, rooftop cafes, banquet halls and open dining restaurants etc become preferable choices as kids of this age build a good understanding and eagerness to know new ambiance.

While finalizing the birthday celebration venue, make these points a priority.

  • Distance between your home and the venue. It shouldn't be very far from home.
  • Analyze the area and amenities available at the venue. It must be spacious enough for your guests and capable of making guests feel comfortable.
  • The venue must entice the kid who is going to celebrate the big day here.


What should be the theme for the birthday decoration?

You can't find any other option more worthy of remark than looking through the varieties of birthday decoration themes. It is the sole cause that makes the whole event memorable.

Choose a theme that -

  • Holds the potential to please your kid and the little guests who are invited to the grand event.
  • Can leave an indelible impression on the memory of the kids as well as the older ones.
  • Can smoothly include personalized ideas for establishing a great connection between the event and the birthday kid.
  • Allows each guest kid to get involved in the theme creatively. As an example - If you have chosen animal or carnival-themed decor, ensure your little guests feel free to pick a characterized costume for their arrival.
  • Utilizes the whole venue excellently without missing a single corner.
  • Adds a meaning to the event. You should choose a theme that can convey a beautiful message to society. It will impact the kids also.


How to set up the tables for your guests in an impressive way?


If you are hosting a birthday party at home, a stylish in-sync table setup will be a prime part of your decoration plan.

  • On one hand placing of the tables should complement the theme, while on the flip the table runners and clothes should also reflect the style of the entire setting.
  • The colors of the utensils and cutlery placed on the table must catch the attention of the guests and tempt the kids.
  • To uplift the beauty of the table setup, you can add a sparkling balloon bunch in the center or place a fresh bouquet.
  •  Placing a funny or lovely birthday quote on the table to add giggles to the atmosphere can be a distinct idea for your unique birthday decoration.


How crucial role does a photo booth or an appealing backdrop play in the birthday decoration?

A grand birthday event and no photos? Well, it is impossible. But for an appealing photo of your kid or the evocable guests' picture, an amazing photo booth or backdrop is equally necessary as other decorative elements are.

  • Though an endless range of photobooth or backdrop ideas are available on digital platforms, you should go with the one that blends finely with the overall decoration theme.
  • If you have picked a DIY photobooth or backdrop idea, utilize all the shimmers, vibrancy and greenery through a variety of objects. Fairy lights, vibrant color fabrics and outdoor/indoor plants will make the photo booths a real pop.
  • To add fun and interest in the pictures, add kid's caps, masks and spectacles to the photo booth or backdrop.


How to keep the kids engaged in the event?- Entertainment is a big savior!

When it comes to the fun for the kids, food, music and any other options become secondary except entertainment through games and swings. You can add plenty of options but keep the age factor of your kid as well as guest kids in mind while deciding any game or swing for the event.

  • Adding party games like Scavenger Hunt and Pinata's will infuse too much excitement and fun into the event.
  • You can arrange a local DJ as well to play kids-friendly music at the event.
  • To create a more engaging atmosphere in the birthday celebration, demarcate a place or corner for DIY painting and crafting activities.
  • If you have a good budget for the decoration and other arrangements, include a variety of entertainment through dance, swings, and DIY activities.


What impact does an invitation, thank-you card and a return birthday gift have on the guests?


Both cards act as a first and last impression on the guests. Hence choose them wisely to create a long-lasting impact on your guests as well as kiddos.

  • Go for the trending option for invitation cards such as boarding pass, mimick tickets and newspapers etc.
  • The text you are going to print on it must be personalized and should connect the kid with the guests.
  • The fonts of the invitation and thank-you card should be catchy enough to create a memory in the guests' minds.
  • In a very similar way, a return gift should be meaningful rather than being just a flamboyant kid's toy.
  • The return gifts can be a small green indoor plant, a small piggy bank to induce the habit of saving in the kids and an inspiring story book etc.


Which mistakes one should avoid while planning or executing the baby's birthday decoration?


To avoid all the possibilities of mismanagement in your kid's birthday celebration, take help from the below listed noteworthy points.

  1. Do not invite too many guests to the event as it can cause unrequired pressure on your pockets as well as on the kid freely enjoying the birthday.
  2. Do not overspend on decoration as expensive decoration will steal all the attention from the kid.
  3. You should not lack in personalization when it comes to budget-friendly and heart-winning birthday decorations for your kid.
