The first step for everyone to not spend too much money and get into eternal debt is to think about a budget.

Only then will you be able to start on the right foot and not with the “foot in jackfruit.”
- The Location Of The Party
This is an important part to consider, as renting a ballroom can be very expensive. So, think, research, and evaluate options such as doing it at home, borrowing a relative or friend’s house to host the party, and, finally, asking for quotes from several places to buy and choose the best in cost and benefit.
- Choosing The Party Theme
Choosing a universal theme with the child is the trick for a simple and cheap party. Items from a specific brand such as Marvel for superheroes or Barbie for dolls are usually more expensive. However, if you adapt to themes that go beyond the obvious, you will be able to save:
Do It Yourself: with some dedication, you will be able to make all the decorations, with balloons, cardboard, and crepon paper, for example.
Borrow: Talk to other moms to see if she has any decor items, she can borrow for you to use at your child’s party.
Ask for help: friends and family can help you, not only with decoration but also with organization. Also, think about each one’s talents, whether to create the panels, think about the colors, customize objects, etc.
- Eat And Drink
The traditional party snack can be a great option, especially if you already know a “handful” snack. You also have other options: miniature foods and snacks: hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, and popcorn, for example. It appeals to children and adults, and you can do it at home. Just set up a table with all the ingredients, and people can make their own or leave everyone ready for them to serve.
For the drinks of a simple and inexpensive children’s party, you can choose not to include alcoholic beverages. And to replace carbonated drinks (soda), juices and flavored waters are ideal, especially if you choose to celebrate during the day. It’s healthy and can even help with decoration (because of the colors).
