Choosing the right party decorations might seem like a daunting task. Fortunately, decorating the punch bowl is an easy thing to do to add a little flair to your drink table.

Paper Decorations

The most simple way to decorate a punch bowl is to tape paper decorations to the outside of a plain glass bowl. For example, for a Valentine's Day party, tape red hearts to the bowl.


Another way to decorate your punch bowl is to make an arrangement of flowers to go around the bowl. You can even hot glue one or two blooms to the handle of the ladle.

Floating Decorations

The most fun way to make your punch bowl stand out is to make ice rings or shaped ice cubes using molds. You can also add fruit cutouts such as pineapple and watermelon stars which will float on the top of your punch.
