I’m doing a backyard party for my daughters 5th birthday. Apart from balloons what else did you use as centre pieces?

  • I’m not sure I’d really worry about a centre piece at that age but perhaps something cheeky. If it’s a girl maybe her favourite dolls can hold the balloons (although I would ask her first!) and be sitting in a bowl or vase, or a boy can have his favourite trucks and cars (not stereotyping here).

  • I’ve made personalised banners for my daughters party. Features her name and decorative triangle colours depending on theme.

  • I agree with Nadine Hill’s answer – a Pinata is great idea. We had fun making one and it was so colourful and then we used it at the end of the party – loads of fun!

  • Foam pieces with items on the end of skewers such as butterflies, love hearts etc. You could use teddy bears with different colour ribbons around their necks or flowers in a water bowl?

  • I’ve made butterflies from small squares of coloured paper, attached them to wire and poked them into a piece of craft sponge – looks very pretty especially if there is a little breeze – they flutter beautifully! A large glass bowl looks great when filled with marbles, sea shells, little toys and/or trolls. A decorative Pinata looks awesome as a centre piece and can be used at the end of the party too!

  • I have made displays with party hats and streamers and other party novelties – lots of colour.
