Party Bon Bons

Bon bons are usually used during Christmas but there are already prints that can be used for birthday parties as well. They can be twisted and hanged above your doors, windows, entry ways, tents and even at the edge of your party tables. They are cheap and one roll can last long to cover up a large area. You can also go for glittered ones to add sparkle in your venue.


Pinatas are not just for party games but can be used as decorations as well. Have several small piñatas win candies or one big one that you can use as the centerpiece for your party venue. The fun that piñatas bring during game play at a party is also worth the effort. It wouldn’t hurt your budget buying one or even two for your party as well.

Face and body paint

Kids and even adults would love to have face paint every now and then, especially the kids. A set would only cost you around $3-$5. You would not have to hire an artist at all because simple designs would do well for face paint and body paint decors. To make it even memorable, have your camera phones ready to take a souvenir picture and send them to your guests parents together with a thank you e-mail afterwards.

Parties need not be extravagant. As long as the birthday celebrant feels special and your guests well-fed and entertained, you can definitely claim your birthday preparation efforts a success.
