For her birthday party, Pippa decided to search on Canon Creative Park using the keywords "birthday" and "party", and she was able to find a vast selection of eye-catching templates. "I wanted a big decoration for the wall so that we had a nice backdrop for plenty of funny photos, so the "happy birthday" garland and photo props were the obvious choice," says Pippa.
Once she had the bigger elements sorted Pippa looked at the details, and what is a birthday without a cake? "Of course there would be cake, so the mini bunting cake decoration was perfect," she continues. "These just had to be cut out, folded and glued over string, then either hung on the wall or tied to wooden skewers for the cake."
Offering her advice to those approaching this for the first time, Pippa says to pick a few attractive but simple decorations, such as a garland or a name banner, to start with, and to check the difficulty rating on each template. "Things like the birthday banner bunting make a big impression at your party and are really easy to make," she says.
