Ten Fun Decorating Ideas for your Next Party

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.

Coordinating Sets

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!

Photo Booth

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 limit photo opportunities to the photo booth. Spice up your space by adding wall backdrops, and give your guests curated spots throughout the party to snap more pictures. Garland and ribbons would add plenty of color and texture.

Food Display

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.

Light it Up

Consider the ambience of your space and set the mood for your soirée by incorporating string lights or lanterns within the common areas.

Bring the Outdoors In

Indoor plants are a major décor trend this year, so don’t exclude them from your festivities. If you’re looking to add a pop of color, check out these 24 blooms. Here are 15 non-toxic indoor plants safe for furry friends.

Place Settings

At dinner parties, the table and the food are the focal points. Create one-of-a-kind place cards for your guests to make the experience more exceptional.


A traditional décor option for parties, balloons introduce a sense of playfulness into any space. Here is a list of conventional, and not so conventional uses for balloons to match your personalized party theme.

Take Home Décor

Offer your guests a piece of your cool décor as their parting gift to remember the party. Air plants are easy care and perfect to brighten and liven up any space. Coasters are practical for both during and after a party, and can be completely customizable.  

Picture Mural

Create a photo collage to honor a special guest’s birthday or milestone. Affix the photos to string lights or arrange them in shapes depending on the theme of the party.
