If you are hosting a birthday party, it is a good idea to find out the birthday person's favourite colour and use that colour to theme all of your birthday party decorations. It can be nice to coordinate with different shades of that colour to break up the decorations a little - for example, if the birthday girl's favourite colour is pink, choose light pink and hot pink party decorations with maybe a touch of iridescent or silver to add a little sparkle! It can be nice to add another colour or two to the mix also - if the birthday boy's favourite colour is blue, choose a bright blue, orange and lime green for a bright and fun party atmosphere! Usually, 3 colours work well together, less than that can be a little overwhelming and more than that can start to lose the effect of the colour theme and start to look multi-coloured.
If you are hosting a function and need to choose colours it can be helpful to decide what feeling or atmosphere you are trying to create. If you want a formal atmosphere, choose party decorations in one or two colours and add silver or gold. Often customers will choose colours that complement each other, or that blend well together. This keeps the function looking simple yet elegant. For example colour combinations such as lavender and silver or gold, ivory and white work well for a formal occasion. If you are wanting to create a fun atmosphere or to brighten a dark or dull area, choose your party decorations in two or three brighter colours that contrast each other. This allows your decorations to stand out in the room and helps to create a fun party feel, which your guests will love! Colour combinations such as purple, orange and green will help brighten up any room and have your guests ready to party!
When choosing your party decorations and birthday party supplies, try to think of the room as a whole. For example, choosing table covers in one colour, paper napkins in another and then your plates and cups in your third colour. Building up your colour theme in this manner brings the room together as a whole unit and looks and feels comfortable for your guests. Many customers make the mistake of buying their tablecovers, cups, plates and napkins in each of the colours in their theme for example. While this can work with some colour combinations, in most cases this can look random and loose its effectiveness in the room as a whole.
