Ribbon and twinkle lights These are colors I like for the ribbons. reds, light blues and yellows. maybe no pink, add light green? break up color with some off-white ribbon. idea is colorful without being full on rainbow.
Birthday Party via Brit + Message Wall: This year, skip the birthday cards. Tape black butcher paper to the wall and leave out some metallic gel pens (remember those?) for guests to leave you some epic birthday messages. (via Hostess with the Mostess)
