How to Plan a Budget-Friendly Birthday Party for Your Child

Having a birthday party to celebrate your child’s special day is wonderful but, these days, parties can end up costing a small fortune. In this article, I’ll share some tips on how to throw your child a brilliant party without the excessive price tag.

  • Keep it small

This is the most important step. You don’t need to invite everyone. Your child is not friends with every child in their class and all the neighborhood kids – keep the party small by only inviting actual friends. The same goes if you’re doing a family party – keep it to close family.

  • Source affordable decorations

Children love a themed birthday party, that’s for sure. When you start looking at branded themed party gear in shops, it can soon end up being quite expensive. Instead, head to GO International for wholesale party supplies at affordable prices. They have a great range of decorations, balloons, party tableware and fancy dress outfits to suit all occasions. We created a Hawaii style party using party supplies from GO International and we were very happy with the quality of the items and the finished look.

  • Skip the entertainer

When you choose to have a smaller birthday party, you can also save money by skipping the entertainer. A small group of children is easier to entertain with games and activities you already know. If you have a garden and the weather allows, some garden games is a great way for the kids to have fun.

  • Save on the cake

Making your own cake and party food is another way to keep costs down and ensure the food is nice and fresh too. We always bake our own birthday cakes and let the kids decide exactly what they want. My middle girl loves fresh cream and strawberry cakes while my eldest is more into chocolate and caramel cakes. My youngest is usually a chocolate cake fan but has decided that she wants a lemon cake next year. Keep it simple, make it fun and let the birthday child decide!
