How to Decorate for a Birthday Party

There are a lot of things to keep track of when planning a birthday party for a friend or family member. 

  • Finding a good location. 

  • Picking a time. 

  • Sending out invitations. 

  • Food. 

  • Entertainment. 

  • Presents. 

  • Picking up a birthday cake.

  • Table decorations.

It’s easy, then, for party décor to get lost in the shuffle. Just pin up a HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner and scatter a few balloons about and that’s good enough, right? 


Choosing the right decorations can play a major role in determining a party’s atmosphere, and it helps encourage party-goers to get into the spirit of the event. Good décor can transform a simple get-together into an unforgettable experience.

Life Size Custom Cutouts has the largest selection of standees, photo ops, wall decals, backdrops, 2D props, and other party decorations. 

Whether you want to surround your child with all their favorite superheroes or turn your living room into a retro 1950s diner without breaking the bank, Life Size Custom Cutouts has the perfect party cutouts for you.

To make sure your event is the absolute best it can be, here are a couple of essential birthday party decorating tips.

Choose a Fun & Immersive Theme

What’s the number one thing that helps set a party apart from all the other parties? A fun and immersive theme! Themed parties are where it's at.

Too many parties have no theme whatsoever. They’re just generic parties with the same generic decorations and the same generic ambiance. 

Investing in a specific theme is a great way to not only save yourself from getting bogged down with décor decisions (which wall hanging should you choose? whichever ones best fit the theme), but also make your event truly memorable.

Good theming can transform an event space entirely, turning it into a Wild West saloon, a psychedelic recreation of Woodstock, a tropical paradise even in the dead of winter, or anything else you can imagine. You can’t plant palm trees in the middle of your living room, but an island backdrop from Life Size Custom Cutouts can help you bring the feeling of the beach into your home.

Keep Focus on the Center of Attention

When putting together a big event and seeing all the cool décor options on offer, it can be easy to get caught up in what you think is fun or interesting. But it’s important to remember that a birthday party isn’t about you.

The center of attention for any birthday party should always stay focused on the birthday the person you are celebrating. Whatever decorations and themes you choose should be chosen with them in mind. 

  • What do they enjoy? 

  • What kind of decorations will get them excited?

  • Most importantly, is there a way to celebrate your loved ones through the décor itself?

The answer to that last question is a resounding YES!

Custom cardboard cutouts are an affordable, dynamic way of doing just that. Resurrect your favorite memories by turning old photos into full-size standees. 

Another fun idea is if you are amazed at how quickly your child has grown up. You can create a timeline using cutouts of pictures from past birthdays, standing them all together in a line to show the progression from adorable toddler to accomplished young adult.

The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Therefore, they are endless to create a high-quality party.
