Here are 3 tips to help you plan a beautiful children’s party on a budget…
I know that these days most people do not have their child’s birthday party at home, but this is hands down, the best way to save money. In our area, most birthday party places start at over $250 per dozen children and that does not include food, cake, or party favors. If the idea of having your kiddos and all of their buddies inside your home gives you the chills, do it in your backyard, garage, or at your local playground.
This is my favorite part! So I don’t get overwhelmed (or overspend), I usually break decorating for the party into three spaces: the entrance, a main table, and the children’s table for seating.
The final tip for planning parties on a budget is the use of printables. I love hopping on ETSY to see what beautiful collections are out there for parties. One of my favorite shops is, Amanda’s Parties To Go. For one low price you can purchase a customized pdf for invitations, cupcake topper and wrappers, party favor tags, and so much more. You simply print it off at your local office supply store and you have a beautifully coordinated party. Aside from the printables themselves being very affordable, you can really save on your cupcakes and party favors too. Simply putting a cute tag on candy, or a dollar section toy can make it look so cute. In the same sense, I can buy solid colored cupcakes from my local superstore and put a cupcake wrapper around them with a cute pick and pay considerably less than a decorated cake. The same goes for invitations!
