What Kind of Party Decorations Are Appropriate?

There is always a reason to celebrate.  People feel obligated to celebrate their nation’s birth, their own birthday, a relative’s birthday or an annual gift giving holiday.  However, it’s just as easy to create your own holiday, set up your own party decorations, and celebrate just for the sheer thrill of it.  Besides, isn’t celebrating a lot more fun than just getting together and having nothing to do?  Well, why not start your own holiday?  Start your own magazine, your own talk show, your own holiday and your own self-appreciation day.  Sort of like the Oprah Winfrey empire, but with twice as much Ale chugging.

There’s always a reason to celebrate and you don’t have to make the day all about you.  (Though occasionally it’s fun to embarrass the guest of honor)  You could do holiday events like Easters, Christmas or Father’s Day and have a field day doing party decorations.  You can keep track of everyone’s birthday and throw them a surprise party the day before or day after.  You could hold parties for newborn babies or for major milestones in a child’s life.  You could have religious festival days or just name a bogus holiday and use it as an excuse to play some cards or other party games. 

No one should ever need a good reason to play music, listen to live music or dance moronically.  There’s always a good excuse to throw an exciting party with lots of party decoration and pleasant distraction.  Why not throw a killer Halloween party and encourage everybody to wear the freakiest and most shameless costumes imaginable.  Speaking of adult fun, there’s certainly nothing wrong with inviting your lads over and taking off on a stag party.  Furthermore, there’s no good reason why hens can’t get together and throw a killer hen night party. 

Just how elaborate should you get with party decorations?  Whatever works in alignment with the theme of the event.  Black is great for Halloween but red and other brighter colors go well at bachelor/bachelorette parties.  Yes, the intent is definitely to be theatrical, fun and maybe a bit over the top.  Just don’t spend too much money on a party decorations theme that’s going to visually assault the guests as soon as they walk in!
