Make Your Party Favours

Make a Homemade Birthday Cake Topper
Buy a cake from the store and make your cake topper. It’s incredible how you can jazz up a simple cake and make it look amazing. Also, consider baking and decorating your cake or cupcakes.
Make Your Buffet
Opt for a simple menu with homemade snacks and treats instead of ordering expensive catering. Finger foods, sandwiches, and homemade cupcakes or cookies can be tasty and cost-effective. If your party is themed, google themed party food, and you will find many suggestions. Alternatively, order pizza; kids love pizza, and it’s a low-cost meal with a significant impact.
Plan a Craft Party
Instead of hiring expensive entertainers, look for free or low-cost entertainment options. You could organize a DIY craft station; kids love a craft. Set up a table with pom poms, cards, glue sticks, toilet rolls, and pipe cleaners from the dollar store and let the kids create.
Hold a Movie Party
Plan a movie screening with a kid-friendly film. Which will keep the kids occupied for the whole party. Have an interval with hot dogs and nachos, and serve ice cream and popcorn mid-film.
Borrow Supplies From Friends
Don’t hesitate to borrow items from friends or family, such as tables, chairs, garden bean bags, or party games. You can also repurpose items you already have at home instead of buying new ones.
Make Your Invitations
Create your handmade invitations, or let your child know. Birthday parties are the highlight of your year when you are young, so let them be involved. You can also consider sending digital invitations via email or social media to save on printing and postage costs.
Take Advantage of Sales, Discounts, and Coupons
Plan when purchasing party supplies; you can pick up some great deals in the sales. Look for bargains at dollar stores, discount shops, or online. Buying in bulk can also help save money, as can buying in advance.
