Go digital on Invites
We all agree mailing out paper invitations is a nice way to bring people in on the special day. The only thing is they’re not so necessary these days when we’ve all gone all digital. Consider sending out digital invites if you’re tight on your budget.
Don’t go hard on the menu
As much as possible, do not worry about creating a menu that’s too elaborate for the birthday party. Her friends will most likely be impressed with a few fun and basic items.
Include no-cost activities
Prepare classic games for your little girl and her friends, one that they can play for next to nothing rather than hired entertainment. Games like musical chairs, freeze dance, red rover, charades and much more.
Use humble supplies
Make use of what is available to make your party supplies feel super special because they will most likely cost half of decorated supplies. Just purchase some key items that will help establish the theme and make use of affordable basics for every other thing.
