Got a chandelier or pendant light over your dining table? Well, then you already have the perfect foundation for some really special party decor.

1: Go soft and casual by knotting loose ribbons overhead.
2: Clump balloons and tissue poms around the light for a pleasant glow.

4: Dense streamers can cover anything - even ceiling fans!
5: Starting at the fixture as your center point, fan out to create a room-sized starburst.
