Carnival is one of the main festive periods of the year and is marked by joy, fun and willingness to jump and dance. Known for its street parties, Carnival also allows for smaller celebrations in closed spaces and works both as a theme for gathering friends who prefer to party at home or for parties for adults and children who have a birthday near this period. Enjoy the theme and ask the guests to appear in costume, so the party is a must. Today we’ll talk about the carnival decoration:
You can be inspired by the plume and glitter atmosphere of the current Carnival parades, in the traditional popular culture with the frevo, maracatu and dolls, in the masks and even in the molds of the old street Carnival with its stripes and polka dots.
Before you start planning the carnival decoration, pay attention to some important details:
- Colors for Carnival decoration: All colors are invited to this party! And it is not necessary that they are all on the same palette for you to use them at your party. From stronger colors to pastels, metallic, sparkling or matte. In a revelry of colors or in cleaner compositions.
- Rooms: with Carnival not sadness. Whether outdoor or indoor, in the garden, in the building's lounge or in your living room, what matters is getting everyone to have fun. To help with the climate, bet on a decoration that fills every corner of your space and also provides moments of integration such as games or special activities.
- Creativity in decor: Use varied materials such as bottles, ribbons, bladders, streamer, confetti, balloons and recycled materials to ensure that all your items are full of fun and color.
- Foliage menu: This is a party that usually brings a lot of sun and heat, so you can bet on drinks and sweets, tables made up of chocolate confetti, jelly beans, appetizers and light and tasty snacks. You can even put edible glitter on the food and make the most of refreshing drinks.
