Your short-stuff might be all about the smash cake, but you know decorations matter, too. Getting your birthday party looking picture-perfect is a big job. Still, it can be worry free! We’ve discovered amazingly simple ways to color your bash beyond streamers and balloons. Click through our album to see how to perk things up with cupcake garlands, light-up signs, baby pics and more.

A Bouncy Entrance to Fun 

Take your balloons and streamers and forget about the helium. Throw the two classic decorations together for some high-reaching excitement. String balloons upside down (with color streamers of your choice) just above those little out stretched hands to really get those tots jumping. High fives to Saar Manche for remastering these two props with originality.
