Birthday parties are for all ages and can range from low key get-togethers to big birthday blowouts!

90th Birthday Party


While most of the parties have birthday cake, singing and presents, here is a list of 10 great current trends we’ve seen at the birthday parties we’ve hosted recently:

  1. Flower or Greenery Backdrop; great for photos or just as décor
  2. Photobooth or Photo Station; fun interactive memory maker
  3. Letter/ Number Balloons; spell birthday girl/boy’s name or age
  4. Favors for Guests; send your guests home with something sweet as a thank you for attending
  5. Candy Bar; serves as dessert and or favor
  6. Step and Repeat Banner; another great backdrop for photos
  7. Entertainment Services: DJ, Band, Comedian, etc.; they help get the party started and keep it going all day or night
  8. Photo Slideshow/ Display; reminisce through the years of birthdays past
  9. Smash Cake (First Birthday); let your little one have some fun and dig in to their very own birthday cake – make sure a camera is nearby!
  10. Interactive Food Stations; allow your guests to customize their own drink or food, for example a Hot Chocolate Bar or Mimosa Station
