Picking a Happy Birthday Banner Based on Party Theme and Type

Every birthday party is unique because the people that these parties celebrate are unique. And as you look to create the perfect environment for your party, consider selecting a happy birthday banner that matches your party theme and type.

For example, an outdoor party on a windy day would likely require a banner you can tie down thoroughly that’s made from sturdier material. You’ll want to avoid paper fans, paper lanterns and honeycomb decorations.

But within a party center, the sky is the limit. You can decorate with any material; just be sure you’re using approved hanging methods to avoid losing your deposit or getting charged for damage to walls or ceilings.

Happy Birthday Banner Selection Tips

Happy Birthday Banner

As you seek out party supplies for your next birthday party, here are some top considerations for the birthday banner. 

  1. Consider your party environment. Select the best banner type (i.e., vinyl sign, balloon letters, cardboard cutouts strung on a string, tissue paper signs, etc.) based on where the party will be.
  2. Evaluate your guest of honor and their interests. We have great tips for how to find party decorations for men as more masculine decorations can be hard to come by. Think about who they are, what they like, their favorite colors and their personal style. You can match all that in your party theme and type to make it a true celebration of who they are.
  3. How much time do you have to decorate? Sometimes, you can get into a party room with just a few minutes to decorate due to another party right before or after your celebration. If that’s the case, you want to consider who can help you decorate and what you can realistically accomplish in that timeframe. You don’t want to be decorating instead of spending time with your loved ones. In the case of a quick turnaround, things like balloon signs might not be realistic because you’ll need to take time to inflate them. Instead, opt for a more traditional banner that you can hang with a couple of pieces of painter’s tape on either side, toss some pre-made centerpieces on the tables and strategically place balloon bouquets in the corners for an instant party appearance.

Ideas for Where to Hang Happy Birthday Banners

Even once you’ve purchased a great banner that matches the personality and interests of your guest of honor, you want to think about where you’ll hang it. Some larger parties might require more than one sign to set the atmosphere. You might want the signs to match or you can have some fun with it and purchase various signs. Either way, here are some ideas for places you might want to hang a happy birthday banner.

  1. Behind the guest of honor’s chair. This will make for stunning photos while opening presents, singing happy birthday or just socializing. Guests can also come over to the chair to get a great photo with the guest of honor.
  2. On the photo booth. Photo booths have become popular fixtures at parties of all types as people find ways to remember the celebration and share it on social media. Adding a happy birthday banner or happy birthday letter balloons that spell out the message can make for the perfect backdrop for your photo booth. 
  3. Over entryways. The entryway of your home or party center is a great place to put your happy birthday sign. That way people know they are in the right place and it helps set the tone of the party from the moment your guests walk in.
  4. Across the dessert table, food or drinks table. This will make your dessert table attractive and inviting for party guests. You might add a banner below happy birthday that says desserts. You can do the same thing with your present table.
  5. Behind the pinata for perfect photos of the action. Children’s parties with pinatas are a blast and those photos are priceless. Create the perfect backdrop for this festive activity by hanging a banner behind the location you hang your pinata.
