Celebrating with Numbers

Decorate around the date!

Michelle Virtue with Campus Floral shares ways to celebrate with numbers.


You might find this hard to believe, but sometimes crunching NUMBERS can be FUNâ"”especially when there's a celebration involved. Creating a party theme centered around digits is an exciting trend that can translate into amazing birthday, anniversary, wedding and everyday celebrations.

1. The number should be meaningful (age, years together, lucky #, date).

2. Be consistant and carry the theme throughout the entire partyâ"”make it obvious! From invitations to favors, a simple number can steal the show.

3. Use numbers in unexpected and creative waysâ"”once you start brainstorming, you'll see number possibilities everywhere.

Here are a few of our favorite tips and brainstorming resultsâ"”

-Try centering your party around a set holiday date. Focus on the 14 for Valentine's Day or the number 4 for Independence Day (4 stars on the invitation, 4 types of soda, sparkler packages decked in 4sâ"”you get the idea).

-Use "numbered" candy to carry out your theme with a sweet treat (Uno bars, Take 5, 3 Musketeers).

-Make nametags and signs with numbers insertedâ"”like computer passwords. M1che11e, H011y, 31isab3th.

-Create a treasure by number hunt for children or kids at heart. Use numbered balloons and punched number confetti.

-Cake walk, anyone??? These number templates are really helpful! http://www.marth astewart.com/286890/a-number-themed-birthday-party- or-annive?lpgStart=1¤tslide=1¤tChapter=1#/286881

-Use playing cards (Uno, Phase 10, Rook) as an adult party theme or as decorations.

-Engrave wood, etch glass, paint with stencils, chalk the sidewalk at your party entranceâ"”let your numbers do the talking.

-Greet your guests with a number wreath created out of cardboard or foam. Cover in silk flower petals, buttons, twigs, yarn, scrapbooking paper, photos, fabric, paint etc.

-If you're really patient and crafty, a homemade number pinata will still the show.

-Create number decorations using unexpected elements (cork, nails, vinyl decals, flashcards, home address numbers, buttons, fabric, balloons, cupcakes, candles, yarn, photos, pipe cleaners, etc.)â"”almost anything can become a number.

-Use styrofoam to create 3-D numbers. We love the idea of using spheres to create 8s and then covering them with fresh flowers for a centerpiece.

-Let your food be numbered among the most memorable parts of your party.

Numbered ice cubes are easy with these Sillycone number trays. http://www.target.com/p/Sillycone-Ice-Bake-Tray-Numbers/- /A-12103806

Number cookies or JELLO jigglers.
