We all love to celebrate our birthday, but sometimes, we need to tighten our purse strings, which means that we are unable to throw the party of our dreams. However, just because you are trying to save money at the minute doesn’t mean that you can have a fun party. In fact, there are many affordable things you can do to throw a great birthday party on a budget. Here are some great tips that will suit any budget!
Bring Your Own Bottle
It can often be difficult finding a good selection of budget friendly spirits in the supermarket so you might have to look online for the best deals. But to make sure that you don’t end up overspending on alcohol for your party, you could ask all our guests to bring a bottle. If everyone does bring one with them, then you will end up with a great choice of beers, wines, and spirits for all your guests!
Do All Your Own Food
When people are super busy getting organized for a party, they often end up getting caterers to help them out with the food. However, this can work out extremely expensive, and you probably won’t be able to do this on a tight budget. So you should try and find the time to do all your own food. There are loads of great food ideas suitable for parties. Buffets are the easiest to do. You just need to make a lot of sharing plates and finger food. One of the best things about buffets is that you can keep all the dishes cold, so you don’t have to waste money by keeping the oven on all day!
Host It In Your Own Home
Why spend money on hiring a venue when you can host your party in your very own home for free!? Are you a bit worried that you won’t have much space in your home? Well, you can always make some! If the weather is good, you and your guests will be able to go out into the garden. If not, you will be able to rearrange your furniture to make room for your guests. Why not move your table out of your dining room; that way you will create a space for a dance floor!
Keep Your Invites Simple
Some people like to buy really fancy invitations to send out to all their guests. However, these can work out very expensive. Thankfully, you don’t need to spend too much money on invitations as there are now simple ways to send out free invites. One idea is to create an event page on Facebook for your party. You can add the time and location and then invite all your friends without spending a single dime! Some of your friends might not be on Facebook, though. You can still invite them for free; just send them a quick email with all the party details!
Hopefully, you can now plan your birthday party for little money. Have fun!
