Being a busy girl I often have many a grand plan but very little time to execute them all. When it came to party decorations I had to go for quick and simple that created the look I wanted but didn't require endless girl hours to prepare. I went for three simple and not to mention thrifty ways to decorate the party space. First up were simple crepe paper streamers, I brought mine on Ebay for around £11 for 9 rolls in three different colours. Its worth looking through the listings to see who has the best deals. I used a roll and a half of each colour for all my decorations featured. I then (with the help of Dan) created a canopy over the dance floor area, it took us about 45mins to put them all up but looked so good.
Everything good in life should have a little gold added in, I made these gold discs using a large punch, gold card, some string and clear tape. I made 5 strands about 3 meters long in an hour (or one episode of Call the Midwife) to add a little bit of shimmer to the canopy.
My third use of streamers was making very quick and simple loops, I have put a picture below. These are a great way to fill up empty wall space very quickly with absolutely not glueing or sticking needed. All you need to do is cut lengths of streamer about 60 - 70cm long and loop over some string and carefully pull closed, keep going until your wall is covered.
