Coming up with cheap party ideas that will impress and excite people doesn’t have to be hard or time consuming. Organizing a party can be a major money saver. I have always loved planning parties and get-togethers, its enjoyable to come up with themes to make them fun and memorable.
I always did this for my children’s birthday parties and other family events. Its actually very simple and common sense, determine the theme and build around it with unique ideas.
Coming up with a Party Location and Theme
Some ideas I use are mine, some are from magazines, DIY shows and even Pinterest. I started using Pinterest when it first began and since then have found it to be a great source for party planning ideas.
Most of my children have had birthday parties home, these were all before Pinterest and other idea-outlets like Pinterest. Though, to be fair we did have some of the kids parties out at ice skating rinks, bowling, Chuckie Cheese’s etc.
I just loved planning and preparing for their parties. For example, we had Barbie, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan/Pirates, Ninja Turtles and many more. The kids that came were always happy with the decorations and fun games I would come up with.
Understanding how to organize a party at home will be fun can still be had while and they get to play in a relaxed setting, as opposed to some of the parties where you pay so much money and are held elsewhere.
Putting Your Party Together
I just recently did a Father’s Day party at my house and had a “Duck Dynasty” theme. This was so much fun planning and seeing it all come together.
Many of the items that I needed to decorate I managed to find around the house, that made it even easier to decorate. To keep the parties affordable other items I was able to find at dollar stores. Bring cheap party ideas to life becomes much either when you have affordable resources.
