Gone are the days when streamers and a punch bowl sufficed as party decorations. Although your guest list and location are key factors in setting up your event, the right décor can add personalization and extra interaction opportunities for your guests’ experience. Kick your party up a notch and create an exciting, memorable event by tying some of these modern decorating ideas into your plans.
If you’re crunched for time, this is a great décor option for you. Take the guesswork out of shopping for supplies by reaching for these cohesive party collections from Martha Stewart, which include plates, cups, napkins, and more!
Make your party one to remember by adding an interactive photo booth. No need to go for the expensive rental, you can set up your own with this DIY tutorial. Plus, you can personalize the photos by adding props and costumes to the booth.

Don’t let your decorating efforts fall by the wayside when it comes to the party menu. Swap out the plastic and tin catering trays for chic serving platters and stands, or get even more creative with a display wall.
