You know what 's the most popular type of decoration for birthday parties? Letter banners! Whether made out of paper, felt or fabric, letters will personalize any party decor, and while I've made sewn banners with letters before, I must admit they do take some time to finish. I usually cut letters out of felt, like here (No need to finish edges!), but even that would take some time, so prepare in advance!

No time left for crafting, and the party day is approaching? Then I'd recommend this type of paper banners:
