Enjoy these unique and delightful ideas for hosting a small birthday celebration at home. Whether it's for family or a small group of friends, these tips will help you create a memorable and intimate gathering. From setting the table to planning a delicious menu and choosing the perfect dessert, we have you covered!

Setting the Table for a Party

Create a festive and celebratory atmosphere with an easy-to-set table. Here are some ideas to make it special:

  • Use the guest of honor's favorite colors for the decorations.
  • A tablecloth or fabric can instantly transform the look. It can become the main color of the décor, even if it's the only place the color is used.
  • Black and white dishes and napkins can give any base color a bold graphic look. Layer place settings with black and white dishes for a dramatic impact.
  • Add a confetti-filled push pop to each place setting. Wrap it with color-coordinating scrapbook paper to match the table.
  • Create a party-style table runner with paper confetti. Sprinkle it down the center, just like a fabric runner.
  • Make easy centerpieces with a mix of flowers and mini vases. Weave them back and forth down the center of the table for a simple accent. This allows the food to take center stage while still adding life to the table.
