party decorating ideas for a garage

1.  Balloons

The easiest and fastest (and CHEAPEST) way to dress up any space is to add balloons. Lots and lots of Balloons are a great way to add a festive touch to any event - whether it is a kids party, teen party or adult party.

You can blow them up yourself and tape them on high points of the walls. You can also purchase a small helium tank and blow up balloons so they can be used as centerpieces or tied to free-standing objects.

Crepe paper works wonders too. You can drape it from one side of the room to another, and it works especially well for adding a lot of color to children's parties.

2. Space

Another worry people have about planning to have a party at home is the fear that they don't have enough space or a room for having a party. This is probably the number one concern!

But you don’t have to worry…Just think it through!

Do you have nice size yard? You can always go outside if weather permits. But an important consideration is that you'll always want a backup plan for bad weather! So we’re back to creating a party space indoors someplace in the house…

3. Garage or Basement?

If you have a garage or basement you can easily turn it into a really nice party room.

Clear out as much clutter as you can, especially to create as much floor space as possible, and then add your own party decorations.

If you can't remove things (like in my garage - yikes...) then stack everything and cover it with butcher paper or large disposable plastic tablecloths. This will make new "walls" and cover the mess. Everyone will be having such a great time they won’t even notice!

Add those balloons, a food table, and music and wow!

See how nice this room has changed by adding flameless candles, balloons and a few decorations? A perfect party space!
