Birthday Party on a Budget

Every child wants the perfect birthday party, and their parents enjoy these parties just as much as the kids do. However, the perfect party can be cost prohibitive. To ensure that you can throw a great party without breaking the bank, we here at PaydayLoansCashAdvance have put together a few tips to help you plan the best budget birthday party ever.

Creating the Budget for Your Birthday Party

Before you start planning, you should decide on a budget. If you have an idea of how much you are willing to spend, it will be easier to plan your party. Many people start with a budget for each category like food, decorations, venue, and so forth. Others pick a cumulative budget and try to find a party package that meets the requirements of that budget.

When selecting your budget, you need to ensure that you don’t forget anything. While venue, food, and entertainment will take most of your budget, small items can break your budget as well. That is why it is important to remember the small details like cutlery, plates, and party favors and plan accordingly.

Birthday Party Packages

Many different types of companies offer birthday party packages for children. Your local bounce house, children’s museum, or restaurants may have offers for children’s parties. Unfortunately, many of these package deals can be quite expensive, but coupons can be a great way to save. By searching for special offers or joining email lists that will send you special offers, you may be able to save hundreds of dollars.

Alternatively, you can plan a party at your home or neighborhood park. A few sprinklers and some cool decorations can make any area into a festive party arena. Furthermore, by hosting the party at your home, you can buy and prepare your own food which may be a lot cheaper than buying food at a restaurant or at a children’s party place.

Party Food

Your budget birthday party can have great food without breaking the bank. Before purchasing food, you should search the newspaper for coupons or look for stores where you can save by purchasing food in bulk. You may also want to consider making the food into an activity. For instance, if you give each guest a piece of pizza dough, they can make their own pizza with the sauce and toppings that you provide. This allows you to combine the food costs with the entertainment costs.

Baking a Cake to Save Money

Commercially made cakes can cost a fortune, and they are often full of unhealthy ingredients. In contrast, you can make your own cake without spending much money at all, and you can ensure that the cake is healthy. This is perfect if you have guests with food allergies. It is considerably cheaper to make gluten free or dairy free cakes than it is to buy them from the store. If you want to make a character cake or a special design, there are a lot of great instructional videos on the internet that can help you. For more inspiration, you can also look through the cookbook section at your library.

Cost Friendly Entertainment

You can have entertainment at your budget birthday party without spending a fortune. Many professional birthday party entertainers are very expensive. However, you may be able to afford their fees using the money you saved by baking your own cake or cutting coupons for party food. Alternatively, you can skip the entertainers and look for other types of entertainment.
Small children still love old fashioned games like pin the tail on the donkey or bingo. Slightly older children may enjoy doing crafts or decorating their own cupcakes as entertainment.

If your children like video games, you can rent a few new games and borrow a couple of extra video game consoles to create a really exciting gaming environment. You can also set up dress up areas with old costumes or make elaborate obstacle courses in your yard. Your entertainment is the most flexible area of your party, and with the right planning, it can also be the most fun part of your party.

A budget birthday party does not have to be dull. Your creativity and imagination can create a party that your child will remember forever regardless of how much it costs. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that you must stick to your budget. If you keep track of how much you save, you may even be able to spend that money on something else fun for your birthday child.
