How To Get Pinterest-Worthy Party Decor On A Budget

Duplicate some of your favorite Pinterest looks, minus the high cost!

It is nearly impossible to plan a party these days without first going to Pinterest for a little decorating inspiration. From DIY crafts that will make you the envy of all of your crafty friends, to extravagant, high-quality decor that leaves you drooling on your keyboard, Pinterest has a little bit of party inspiration for everyone, no matter what the occasion!

However, one of the downsides of Pinterest is that you don’t always have the time or the money to recreate some the detailed, intricate themes that many of these professional party planners share on their pages each holiday season. Lucky there are many low-budget ways to recreate some of your favorite Pinterest looks, but still maintain the high-quality design that you are looking for at your event! To get you started, here are three easy ways to recreate popular Pinterest party looks, all without breaking the bank.

1. Clusters of Lanterns or Tissue Paper Poms

One of the most popular decor trends for both weddings and showers is using clusters of lanterns or tissue paper poms as a decor centerpiece. Not only are these decor pieces a great statement piece for the overall party, but they are also a great way of adding pops of color into your room, whether you want to stick to one color theme as shown above, or incorporate multiple colors for a brighter look. However, creating tissue paper poms yourself can be quite time consuming, especially when you can buy low cost, high-quality pre-made versions in no time at all! My Paper Shop offers tissue balls and fans in a variety of different colors that would be great to recreate this look at your own party! We also offer round paper lanterns in a variety of colors if you would like a more classic option.

2. Magically Suspended Balloons

Want to create a little magic in the ballroom or main room at your event? Hanging clear balloons from the ceiling creates a magical, ethereal look that will leave your attendees in awe. The best part? Recreating this look is simple and doesn’t even require the costly element of filling balloons with helium! Simply purchase a mix of white and clear balloons, along with some white or clear fishing line to suspend them from the ceiling, and you’re all set! You could even purchase colorful confetti pieces to put inside a few of the balloons for a pop of color at your event.

3. Custom Banner Sign

Whether you are throwing a birthday party, a bachelorette party or a baby shower, custom banner signs are a great way to celebrate the guest of honor and add some fun decor to your party! However, rather than pay big bucks to have someone custom-create a banner sign for you, why not make your own at home? My Paper Shop sells classic paper banner signs in a number of different colors that you can customize at home. For instance, cut out letters or numbers to glue onto the sign, glue 3D paper cutouts along the edges to add a little extra design, and even mix and match different color banners to bring every color in your theme into the design.
