Using your garage as your party venue is actually a pretty great idea. With a little hustle and effort, this space can look fantastic as well and it doesn’t cost you as much as renting a venue from third party. If you need some ideas for the decoration, the following decors will inspire you.
1. Play of Light
This venue doesn’t have much of decoration items. The barn looking garage is made elevated with linen curtain on the gate that looks romantic and classy at the same time, thanks to the string light and hanging ball lantern inside. It matches the farmhouse structure and the combination of everything creates a stylish rustic party. It will look even better when night gets darker.
2. Ceiling of Ribbon
This barn garage has a high ceiling and it can be tricky to cover it with the regular options. Instead of going the hustle, this venue is then decorated with ribbons, colorful ones. It is hung from one end to the other and they are enriched with string lights. While it still showcases the rustic look of the garage, it also adds sophistication at the same time.
3. Hang Flag Strings
Working with color themes will be easier for this decoration. You can print out several flags on the color scheme and make it into several strings. Hang them from one wall to the other so it fill the room with a more festive feeling without going to much gone from the theme. These flag strings update the venue look into a romantic yet cheerful space.
4. Balloon Arrangement
Balloon is something we can never leave out when it comes to party decoration. This party uses garage as the venue, and it features balloon arrangement above the tables. While it indicates where the guests should eat and sit, it decorates the venue just effectively without the need to cover the entire ceiling of the garage.
5. Unique Table Runner
You need to draw the guests attention on the decoration instead of the venue, so adding unique table runner will be helpful. This table runner is made of paper doilies glued to each other. It looks stunning and contrastive on the wooden table, which you probably use on your garage party. It is cheap to make it, but if you choose the right shape to use, it will look lovely.
6. Work on Your Background Wall
Covering the wall is probably necessary if it isn’t too appealing with the party theme. However, creating an interesting and eye catching focal point is highly essential. You need a background that is consistent to the party theme and great enough as a photo background. Try multicolor ribbons and balloons in alphabet and numbers too. It needs to be outstanding.
7. Neat and Fun Seating Arrangement
If you decide to add seating into the venue, you need to work on a floor plan. Draw on possible plan on how to place all the tables and chairs, and who should sit next to if it is important. You also need to make sure there is enough space for the walk flow and people to dance at the same time. This one features bright linen and simple centerpieces to complete the decoration.
8. Work on a Theme
This is probably the first important thing you need to figure out. You need a theme. This garage party adopts the vintage theme, so the decoration all works on this line. One of the decoration points in the party is this table with all vintage items which will work as a photo spot as well. If it doesn’t go with a theme, it won’t look as great.
9. Pretty Entrance
Your guests will get instantly excited as they see the welcoming gate. If you have double gates, you should decorate them both, maybe adding some signs indicating the entrance and exit if you want to. Frame the gate like this barn garage. You can use balloon, ribbons, or flower string like this one, and add curtains on any fitting fabric.
10. Creative Lighting
Sometimes, you only need to add creative options of lighting to draw the attention to the decoration instead. This is one of the best examples. Hanging mason jars along with string light will create real pretty rustic atmosphere. It gives the gleam and reflects the light nicely. It is effortlessly nice and pretty so you don’t need too much more detail on lighting.
11. Cover the Wall
If you don’t think the garage wall fits the theme, or if there are too many storages and shelves on it, you can cover it with the right color. You need to choose cover that works with the theme and match it with the rest of the decoration details. Bright color will brighten a small garage, and dimming color will accentuate a large room.
12. Cute Centerpiece
Adding a table centerpiece is another essential element on your decoration. Based on the theme, you can create a simple yet cute centerpiece and put it in the middle of the table. You can number the table if you need to, but a simple centerpiece without codes or signs is always welcomed too. Consider your guests while choosing the style of the centerpiece.
13. A Photo Booth, Perhaps?
If the space allows it, you should consider adding a small photo booth where your guests can take photos to memorize this moment. It doesn’t have to be something super sophisticated. Keep it original and on the theme, and make sure three to four persons can take photos together.
14. Paper Neon Garland!
This idea is super brilliant and easy to make. You only need to stick the paper neon garland on the wall, ceiling and flooring, anywhere you want it. You only need black light to make them shining, and your garage will be transformed into a hype fluorescent party room.
15. Dance Floor
A simple thing like this “boogie down” sign is enough to indicate that it is the dance floor, facing the DJ counter. If you plan a party for your teens, and your garage space allows it, this is probably a great idea to add a dance floor.
