Planning a party on a low budget isn’t easy. But this doesn’t mean that it cannot be done. You will still be able to buy cheap hens party accessories, other party décor and themes, and other necessities without breaking your bank. Below we will give you a number of ways on how to save money and still host a memorable party:
– Choose the right theme for the right party
Consider who and what the purpose of the party is for. Remember that a party for a kid and that for an adult have different requirements when it comes to décor and theme. Choosing the right the right décor and theme will help you save. There is no point of throwing an extravagant party to impress people and yet it backfires. The point of a party is for people to have fun.
– Take advantage of what you have
Use supplies left over from a past party, your home, and even borrow from friends. This will be friendly on your wallet as well the environment.
– Buy serveware that can be re-used in different parties and events
Buy white disposable plates/cutlery and serveware in bulk. Doing this will enable you to reuse them for any other party that you host in the future. The only other things you may have to buy are low priced paper plates and cutlery and themed balloons, ribbons, and other types of décor.
– Don’t buy themed décor
Themed decorations are those that are written something like happy 5th birthday or 50th anniversary or have popular character that kids love. Such decorations cost much more than those of solid colors. If you buy such supplies, you chances of reusing them are very slim. Instead of that, go for a color scheme that can match with the theme of the party and try to fix the theme on other pieces elsewhere. Specific party items should be in limited supply and for high impact uses. The generic ones should be in colors that are coordinating. You can save costs by making a homemade banner stating the theme of the party or if it’s a birthday, hang balloons on the wall in the shape of the birthday number you are celebrating.
– Thrift stores for serveware
For serveware such as glasses, jugs, decanters, suacees/teacups, bowls, bowls, trays, platters, as well as re-usable party décor such as table clothes, vases, candle holders, picture frames and so on visit thrift shops. These items are re-usable or returned back to the store, so visit such a shop to save money.
