Happy Birthday Stamps
Personalize your stamps by using one of the great zazzle happy birthday stamps. Please be sure to bring a complete invitation, including all inserts, to a local post office to determine exactly how much postage is required. If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.
If you are looking to save some money, most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens; either will work. Likewise, if you are hosting a birthday party at your house just about any color linen you have will be fine, in fact, placemats will also work great, and to tell you the truth, individual sheets of scrap booking paper work great and are adorable. Choose any solid colored paper or any of the great birthday papers available atScrapbook.com . If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor. Alternatively, use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests. Laminate it and tie with Personalized Ribbon for a complete favor anyone can enjoy.
Just a note on chair covers: chair covers may not be necessary if the chairs supplied are fairly neutral and in ok condition. In fact, I tend to not use chair covers at any of my personal parties. Having said that, if your budget permits, the overall look of certain rooms is enhanced if chair pads are used. Choose one of your accent colors.
If you are having a fairly large party, don’t forget to include your place card table, your gift table, buffet tables, and any ceremonial tables when determining your linen count. Also, if you chose to use more ornate linens, do not use them for the cocktail hour; they will have a greater impact as your guests enter the dining room.

Happy Birthday Party Centerpieces
Mix and match centerpiece arrangements. Use a different centerpiece on each table. Add wrapped packages to adjust the height of the arrangements and to add fun or place any on a fun cake platter
Birthday Flowers in Decorative Candle Bowl Teleflora’s Birthday Celebration Bouquet
These flower cupcakes will look especially great on kids tables! Consider using eight foot tables for the kids. Place Cupcake in Bloom™ down the center of each 8 foot table. Use either a single cupcake or arrange 2-3 groups of 3 cupcakes. Group wrapped gift boxes randomly between flowers. Another upscale option is to display each cupcake in bloom on individual cupcake stands or completely WOW your guests and order enough cupcakes in bloom to create a large centerpiece of blooming cupcakes in a cupcake stand.

Tea-lights and Tea-light Holders
Most venues supply tea-lights and holders but if yours does not, consider purchasing some. The play of light makes a difference. Place at least three on each table. The featured candles are actually party favors but would also add a whimsical element to your tables if substituted for standard votive candles.

My kids’ high school math teacher collected silly birthday hats. The birthday student was star of the day and then had his or her picture taken and posted on the birthday celebration bulletin board. It all seemed a bit silly at the time but looking back on it, we all smile.

Sometimes Party Idea Pros just comes across an idea or a site which might provide that little extra something to make your birthday celebration even more special …
Make the Night Last a Year
Don’t let this memorable night fade away with the morning sun. The next day, when all is still fresh, log ontoShutterfly.com to create photo books, memory calendars, and even photo thank you notes or create a 5×7 photo card announcing the day, time, and location of your next celebration.
Or do it the old fashion way — print your own photos and store them in an easily accessible photo album or binder with photo page inserts.
