Picture-Perfect Birthday Party
Photo Wall and Personalized Bottles
Document a life and make a big, bold visual statement at the same time. It's a snap to do -- and inexpensive, too. Print photos in various sizes. Lay them on the floor in the shape of the birthday number to determine your arrangement. Then tape them to a wall. Attach more images to bottles with double-sided tape.
Personalized Photo Tray
Serve drinks on a memorable tray. Line the exterior bottom of an acrylic tray with a snapshot, enlarged and cut to fit. Attach picture with spray adhesive.
Photo Party Hats
Pick especially silly or endearing photos of the guest of honor -- choose a few -- for these personalized takes on the classic party hat.
Photo Booth Invitation Clip Art
Personalized Birthday Balloons
Use spray adhesive to attach photos (use photo-editing software for round, white borders) to Mylar balloons.
Tiled Photo Decoration
Combine a favorite image and a nifty computer program (called Rasterbator) to create a tiled birthday decoration that can fill a wall.
Have photos printed on edible paper, and smooth them onto frosted cupcakes.
Personalized Place Mats
Adorn a plain paper mat with a picture in photo corners. For a small party, use them as place cards too --- choose pictures of the guests with the birthday boy or girl.
Light up faces with candid candles as your centerpiece. Use photo corners to secure snapshots to the outside of glass candleholders.
