Throwing A Birthday Party On A Budget

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Celebrating someone’s birthday, whether it’s yours, a family member’s or a friend’s is always a fun thing to organize. However, when you’re on a budget, it can be quite a challenge to save money. Here are some tips to help throw a birthday party on a budget.

Rent Everything
A birthday party tends to be unique to the age and the person you’re throwing it for. So the last thing you want to do is to buy everything for the event and then have to find a place to store it all. With any birthday party, no matter how big or small it is, try to rent everything that you need. Things like a tent or tables and chairs can all be sourced from external companies. You can get rent event tents for a lot less than what you’d pay actually to buy one. There’s also no point in buying one unless you were planning to use it for something else later down the line. Any way you can save money is going to help massively, so rent what you can and then buy what you can’t.

Keep The Guest List Small
When it comes to the guest list, you don’t want to make this too big. For someone who is turning a substantial age though, you might want to open up the invite list a little more. However, if you’re throwing a 2nd or 3rd birthday party for your child, the likelihood of them remembering it is going to be very slim anyway, so why waste money by having more people to pay for. For most birthday parties, the host or person throwing the party will need to fork out the money for everything that’s needed.

Throw A Party At Someone’s House
When you’re trying to save money, you will often find that the biggest expense when it comes to birthday parties is the venue you host it in. To save on this expenditure, why not try and throw it at someone’s house? Providing there’s somewhere big enough, it can be a great way of saving money and spending that extra bit more on the food, drinks or treats for the person who’s birthday it is. It can also feel a lot more personal when it’s at someone’s home, rather than in a more professional setting like a restaurant or hotel.

DIY Your Decorations
Decorations can help transform the space and make the party look more impressive. But why spend so much money on decorations that will likely just get thrown away? It might be a better idea to DIY your decorations and get some friends or family members to help out with the creation of the decor. You can also get a lot of freebie printables online should you not have that much of a creative flair within you. These little savings here and there can help make everything a lot more affordable.

Throwing a birthday party on a budget is certainly doable and can still mean so much to the person it’s for.
