Sometimes you don't want the party to end. You spent time on the decorations and they look good dammit. Like really good. Like so good you don't want them to come down and get stowed away when you could be enjoying them year-round. We're talking sparkle, movement, and happy times.

Above, this beautiful macramé garland from A Beautiful Mess is so much more than a party backdrop. It's sculptural, fiber art awesome-ness that deserves a permanent place on your wall. It's that good.

Disco balls. I'm not sure how else to sell these to you, other than to just say it again. They reflect light. They spin. They are disco balls.

Anyone that makes a table lamp out of a pinata has a healthy and party-worthy sense of humor, and for that A Subtle Revelry gets my vote for funny person of the year.

Paper lanterns are the pigeons of party goods, so it's great to see this series of four used in a unique way in this bedroom from Klikk. The vertical lamp is sculptural and functional at the same time.

String lights might have their roots in Christmas tree decorations, but they've long since transcended the holiday season. They are a fast, easy and inexpensive way to add a soft (and yes, festive) glow to your home. From Weekday Carnival.

A Beautiful Mess strikes again with these brilliant and bright marquee letters that work well for a cocktail party and can live on for years above your bar cart. And yes, they really do light up for reals.

Bunting comes in all different sizes and shapes, but it's a classic. This set from Rodeo & Co. is a decorative touch that feels home-y and real, well beyond the actual party. Via Cake Events & Design.
