Easy and Cheap Party Planning

By | September 24, 2022

Party planning can be fun, but it’s also a lot of work. Here’s a quick list of what you need to do to plan a great party!

The first thing on your to-do list is to choose a theme for the party. The theme will set the tone for the whole event and help you figure out other items on your checklist like venue, guest list, and invitations. Is your birthday party for your little one? Throw a fun animal themed birthday party for your tyke. For an adult birthday, go for a classy, elegant theme like midnight in Paris. Teenagers can be picky about everything, so if your teen has a birthday coming up, it’s best to just ask them what they were thinking. A pizza and movie night might be all they want, or they may decide to hit the mall with some friends. If your teen does want a party, Alice in Wonderland or Marvel may be good party ideas. Ask what they think ahead of time so you can make sure they and all their friends enjoy themselves.


After you’ve picked out your theme, you need to decide on a budget. How much money can you spend on the party? Do you have any wiggle room to spend a bit more, or is your budget strict? There are all kinds of options for either type of budget. If you have more money to spend on your birthday party, go online and look for matching plates, party favors, and decorations that all compliment your theme. For those of you on more of a budget, check out your local craft supplies store. There’s dozens of types of ribbon, fabric, and fake flowers to choose from. You can get everything that you need to create the perfect decorations for your party, at an affordable price.

Now you need to send out your invitations. There are tons of options to choose from, with dollar store invites to high-quality cards. Try Basic Invite for you birthday cards. They have options to fit every price range, with a wide variety of choices. Take these surprise 60th birthday party invitations for example. You can find the right card for you. Check them out!
