Tips To Throw A Children’s Birthday Party on a Budget

Does your jaw automatically drop when you see the effort and expense that some families dedicate to their kids’ birthday parties? Instead of obsessing over the perfect party decorations and an outrageously large cake, there are many things you can do to ensure your child’s birthday is amazing without having to spend and arm and a leg. The tips below will help you to plan a meaningful, fun, and affordable birthday party for your child.

  • If you have more than 50 kids and adults on your guest list, one of the quickest ways to reduce your party budget is to slim down the list. While your child may have numerous friends from their school that you’d like to invite, it’s important to stay within your personal budget.
  • Rather than ordering an expensive cartoon-themed cake from your local bakery, consider baking your own simple birthday cake. There are many fun frosting colors and sprinkle selections to choose from, and you can add your own decorative cake topper to create a unique theme. For example, if your daughter loves unicorns, try to find an inexpensive unicorn cake topper to display on top of the cake. After all, kids are just going to eat the cake up anyway, so you shouldn’t have to spend an extravagant amount of money on your child’s birthday cake,
  • If your child’s birthday falls close to a friend’s birthday, consider working with the parents on throwing a dual party for both children. This way, you can split the birthday costs with the other parents so the party isn’t as much of an expense. Another benefit of doing this is you can split the responsibilities with the other parents, too. For example, if you plan on baking a birthday cake for the party, the other parents might want to bring finger foods or appetizers.
  • Serve foods that are inexpensive and easy. On the day of your child’s birthday party, you’ll likely have a variety of different things going on. From putting up party decorations to arranging goodie bags for your guests, there will be many tasks that need your attention. If that means it’s best to order ten pizzas, go for it. You’ll be glad you won’t have to spend hours in the kitchen the morning of your child’s birthday.
