Bright birthday party supplies and decorations

Our number one general birthday bash tip? Keep the decor bright and colorful! We especially love these versatile birthday party supplies because they can be used for any theme, age, or gender. We guarantee that everyone can appreciate a little rainbow celebration!

Rainbow fringe happy birthday garland

Festive garlands are a classic, and this rainbow fringe banner makes such a stunning statement, and complements any birthday party theme. Not to mention, it's a super easy and effortless decoration to transform even the plainest party space. Simply throw it on a wall, banister, birthday table, or mantle for a burst of B-Day brilliance!

Rainbow balloon garland for a birthday decoration

It's a crime to throw a birthday party without at least a few balloons, right? You can never go wrong with a classic balloon garland, and you can even whip one up yourself! Creating a DIY birthday balloon garland is simple! Just grab a few link balloons in your chosen color scheme, and tie the top of one balloon to the knot of an inflated one; blow the first one up, and repeat the process until you have a bright and fun balloon chain.

Birthday party supplies for a Sweet 16 celebration

Let's talk tableware. We love going grand for milestone birthdays, so if your birthday boy or girl is celebrating a big one, grab some plates or napkins that tell it like it is! For example, these hot pink plates and matching napkins are a necessity for a Sweet 16 party.

First birthday party tableware and party supplies

And if you’re throwing a 1st birthday celebration for your little one, these First Birthday plates and napkins in either pink or blue are an adorable must. Don’t forget to pair them with gold tapered candles for an extra special touch.

General birthday party supplies and tableware

Can you tell we're a little obsessed with birthday party tableware? There are just so many fabulous options to include in any theme party. Another Bonjour Fête favorite are these colorful fringe cups. We frequently pair them with all sorts of other B-Day supplies, but we’re particularly fond of how fantastic they look alongside these party dog and cat napkins and plates

While this combination is a staple for all ages, it's particularly adorable when used for kids' birthday parties. Set them up along with a few playful party hats, crowns, and noisemakers, and you’ll have the most kickin’ kids party!

These party animal themed additions are an excellent go-to if you’re searching for general B-Day supplies. After all, who wouldn't love party decorations with cute cats and dogs? These exciting dog and cat crackers are also a birthday party necessity. Place them on your table and let your guests pop them open and take home the fun treasures inside! 

As for other party favors, we’ve got a lot more where that came from. Keep the party going and send your guests off with surprise balls, temporary tattoos, candy treats, and all kinds of other goodies.
