Shrek Party Decorations: Get Dirty

For decorations, the colors green and brown are your friends. Set up streamers of different green and brown hues from the ceiling to mimic vines. Matching balloons, table cloths, napkins, plates and utensils will help tie everything together. Finally, consider incorporating real or fake plants to create a realistic atmosphere.

Ready to get creative? Spend some time with the birthday kid to come up with outrageous Shrek-themed names for menu items and label them accordingly.
