There are so many ideas out there for how to make a big impact at parties. Often the pictures you find the parties look quite extravagant and for many people, don’t fit the budget or are too much work. Thankfully, you don’t need much to make a BIG impact!
When my girlfriend had her first daughter, I hosted our church’s babyshower for her and wanted to have some fun decor, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money or hours prepping for it. So here are a few things I did.
My gift to her was a diaper cake – it sat on the table and was great decor, but then she got to take it home, which was great for her & me! I used elastic bands to secure the diapers, and then used ribbon to tie each tier together, then stacked them — VOILA!
From the dollar store I picked up cups & napkins which added a splash of color and were useful for the shower.
I LOVE mason jars! They can be used for everything and look fantastic. I picked up a few bunches of daisies and had jars wrapped in ribbon with daisies around. Simple but sweet, and everyone loved it.
One thing I have learned is that you don’t need to do everything, but pick a few simple decor ideas and allow them to make a big impact. Parties don’t have to be expensive or time intensive to be great. Ultimately, in the end its about the people getting together to spend time anyway.
