DIY Party Decorations

Tomorrow is May Day which for me always signals the start of many momentous occasions to celebrate!  This month alone is host to the Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and Memorial Day as well as a series of springtime engagement, wedding and baby showers.  And this year I feel especially blessed to have so many of my loved ones expecting their first babies.

So in honor of the start of many wonderful reasons to throw a party, I decided to prepare early by collecting adorable ideas for party decorations that I can make myself and allow me to stay on budget.

Here are my favorites so far!

DIY Nautical Party Decor by Bird’s Party Blog

I love this idea to make starfish and seashells out of salt dough!  It is easy to make and a great alternative to using the real thing which is unsustainable as it exploits these beautiful creatures that are fished for decoration.
