Confetti and sprinkles are typical images which come to mind when I think of a kid’s celebration – and it is a wonderful “theme” to base a party around. It is very simple to decorate for since you can combine lots of colours together rather than find specific theme based partyware.
You could go for a really bright look or a more pastel confetti look – anything goes!
I also think it is a great theme if you don’t want to have a really detailed theme but still want some type of decorating pattern to set the tone/decor for the party!
You could combine it with an icecream based theme or use it for a baby sprinkle event (a baby shower for a 2nd, 3rd etc baby).
Hope you enjoy the collection I’ve put together:
