I decided to surprise my son on his birthday by hanging this curtain of balloons and streamers from his doorframe. I just used to tape to hang the balloons from curling ribbon and strips of paper streamers. When he opened his door in the morning he got a face full of "birthday cheer"!

I enjoy decorating for the month of July because my son and husband's birthdays are in July (5th and 27th).

I decorate my table by putting a white lace tablecloth as the bottom layer, a red checked tablecloth as the next layer, and an American Flag scarf in the center. The centerpiece is:

  • a vase of silk white azalea flowers with small American flags on each side inside the vase
    The front of the vase has a strand of red cherries tied with a white bow.
  • two 20 year old resin like Charlie Brown figurines
  • two 20 year old Charlie Brown drinking glasses
    Which I placed a blue checked napkin with a candle fold.
  • a candy dish holds mints or candies
  • votive candles with white or red candles
  • Fourth of July placemats
  • a glass condiment holder holds S and P shakers and a small glass toothpick holder

The breakfast bar has whimsical 4th of July placemats with a 4th of July ice cream sundae bouquet on it. These decorations will remain until the end of July.

What can I do with an old photo of my mom when she was a little girl to use it as a decoration for 80th birthday party?

Hi, I scanned a photo (age 6) of my Husband for his 50th Birthday Party and used it as the front of the invitation & the back had the time, date, rsvp etc. information. Then, I used photos of him from baby to adulthood {with his children} with captions added in a LARGE frame with the numbers "50" in LARGE print above them. We still get a chuckle from it 2 years later. Hope this helps...

I would blow the picture up to poster size and put it on the wall behind the guest of honor's chair. Or see if your local photo shop can put it on paper placemats or napkins for all the guests.

Use a COPY of that photo, of course. You can take it to some large stores who have a machine to use frosting like in a computer printer, to spray the image onto the cake.

For my wifes 50th birthday, I purchased an autograph frame. It is a photo frame designed for her guests to sign. Everyone loved it and she has a great keepsake . You just put the picture in and then after the party put it in the frame. You can find these at Jo anne fabrics or Michael's craft stores.

What can I make to decorate our house for a 4 going on 5 year old's birthday party? She wants it to be camo because it's November 19, the beginning of shotgun season and we hunt or horses, because she loves horses.

You can take lassos and set up in a way it becomes a decoration, but later you can have bean bags made with material that has horses on it and have a ring toss game. You can take old boots and use them for weights for the balloons.

Make bandana place mats or table runner. Have stick horses to play a racing game outside if weather permits. Bake a cake and frost it and for the decorations, go to dollar store and get horse figurines and use red rope or black rope licorice for lassos. Make rice krispie treats for bales of hay. Hope this helps!
