Birthdays are a special date and there are many ways to celebrate them, celebrating this special occasion in the lives of children sometimes becomes a headache because of all that goes into the celebration.
Guest list, cake, food, games, sweets, surprises, entertainment? the list is long but also the money that goes into making a celebration.
Thinking about this today I want to give you 5 tips that will help you. How to Throw a Birthday Party on a Budget.
1. Create and share amazing party invitations for your kids: Making your own invitations on your computer, rather than ordering professionally created stationery, can be a great way to save money. Using the free templates. I recommend Canva, it's simple and has a selection of professional designs. Upload your own photos or choose the ones you want from their great collection of images, and create the perfect invitation for any event and celebration.
2. Narrow down the guest list.
There is no unwritten rule that says you have to invite your son or daughter's entire class to his or her birthday party, so make a list of your son or daughter's close friends. Ask him or her which 3 or 4 classmates and friends he or she would really like to have at the party. This will depend on your child's age.
3. Make your own Printables.
Currently there are pages that will help you make your printables with them you can create a hanging decoration, create a garland to decorate the walls, table, entrance, furniture, the bottom of the table. You can also
Decorate cupcakes and sandwiches. Print the silhouettes in small size, cut them out and glue them to small wooden skewers. These decorative skewers can be used to decorate cupcakes, sandwiches, omelet skewers, sausages, cakes.... you name it! Here is one I found with different ideas. You can also search on Pinterest
4. Choose a theme for which you already have decorations.
Talk to your kids and try to pick a birthday party theme together that uses things you already have. If your child's favorite theme is Canine Patrol, Pepa Pig or Spiderman, chances are you have plenty of things on hand to use as decorations. So do a search around your house before you head out to the store. As the host, your child is the first to enjoy the event, so let them help you decorate with what you already have.
Sometimes kids have no qualms about celebrating their birthdays with the same pattern or theme because they love it. When I was a kid I remember 4 years in a row I was the pink panther. I loved it.
