Who doesn’t love a good party? Just another excuse to have a few laughs with friends and a well-deserved drink after your week.
When planning an event, the focus should always be on the budget. Just because you’re on a tight budget does not mean you have to compromise on class. Here are some tips for throwing a tasteful yet economically friendly party.
Find a unique space to hold your soiree that won’t break the bank. Rent the community house in your neighborhood, pergola in the park, a block party, or even your backyard. Hosting a party at a venue that already sets the atmosphere eliminates the additional décor needed to follow the theme and set the scene.
All the new craze is to “do-it-yourself”. The beautiful center piece that you’ve had pinned on Pinterest can come to life with the help of a few craft stores and a glue gun. Make sure your DIY projects aren’t too complicated that you have bitten off more than you can chew. Projects that can save you time and money is to create your own invitations. By using some of our blank invitations, you can write personalized messages to your guests. With additional cards, they can double as thank you notes after the party.
3. BOTTOMS UP!
Instead of providing a variety of alcohol, create a signature cocktail. This way, you only have to purchase one or two types of liquor to make your cocktail. And with every alcoholic cocktail, create a designated driver’s version for the guests that are not drinking.
What is a party without delicious food? Whether finger-food or full dishes, why not lessen the load of catering the entire party yourself. Create a prospective menu and check off lists for your guests to bring their favorite dishes. Even ask your guest to bring their favorite cocktails. This will help cut back on time, budget, and are awesome conversation starters by swapping recipes.
