So I was the elder daughter and was brought up in a joint family till 15 which resulted in decorating for birthday parties for my siblings. And let me tell you if you don’t already know that hanging party banners was a lot of trouble then (especially those heavy ones).
Using tape would either result in a damaged wall or a banner that falls even before the party starts. Using command hooks makes the process so easy and it can be used every year for anyone’s birthday. I just wish I would have known it back then.
