Flickr Finds: Classic Party Decoration Inspiration

Festive and classic, the party decorations featured on this album cover can still hold their own in a world that celebrates kitch times. By having a few basic items on hand: streamers, tissue paper balls, party horns and paper hats, you will always be ready for an impromptu "Riot in The Rumpus Room"!

Most of these decorations are still manufactured and can be found at your local party supply shop. If they are lacking in the simple classic stuff, here are a couple of links for online party supply sources:

Honeycomb Tissue Balls
Tasseled Party Horns
Champagne Party Poppers
Metallic Party Hats

Estate sales are a great place to hunt for vintage decorations. People hold on to these items because you can use them over and over again! Here are a couple of links to vintage party supplies available on Etsy:

Vintage Honeycomb Paper Ball Party
Vintage Cardboard New Years Eve Party Horns
Candy Stripe and Crepe Paper Party Horn
Retro Party Hats

If you are feeling like getting crafty, you can make your own party hats:

Martha's Party Hats

Sure, you can have a party without these decorations, but I wouldn't recommend it!
