As parents, we all want to give your kids everything, especially when it comes to birthday celebrations. However, very few of us have the luxury of having more than a modest budget to work with. The good news is that you don’t need necessarily need to spend a small fortune to throw a fun and enjoyable party. To this end, here are a few tips that should help you throw a children’s birthday party without breaking the bank in the process.

1) Always keep your options open

From party supplies and caterers to entertainment like magicians and fairground rides for hire, it’s good standard practice always to do research and keep your options open. After all, the only way that you will find inexpensive alternatives and better deals is by looking for them. And as tedious as this might sound, time spent carefully comparing and considering all available options can go a long way in keeping the costs low and help you stay within your allotted budget.

2) Take the digital approach

No birthday party is complete without the necessary invitations. And while printing the invites on paper may seem like the logical approach to take, these days it’s often better to go digital instead. After all, opting for electronic invitations will not only save you both time and money, but it will also present you with a unique opportunity to be much more creative with the design for the invitations.

3) Bake instead of buy

Another popular approach in keeping party costs low is by making your own homemade cake rather than buying it. In this way, not only will you have much more control over the ingredients but you can save a great deal of money that can be spent on other areas of the birthday celebration too.

4) Don’t be afraid to double up

If your child’s birthday falls close to another, be it the child of a friend or a family member, it is well worth considering a double party. After all, it will allow you to keep the expenses towards the celebration at an absolute minimum since you will be splitting the bills with the parents of the other child without cutting any corners. Just be sure that both children get their own respective cakes.

5) Stay away from party store mark-ups

One of the reasons why birthday parties can often be expensive is that many parents usually get caught in party-store traps and pay a substantial markup for items that would otherwise be cheaper elsewhere. So before you make any purchases, try to visit other stores first. It will save you money.

Birthday parties may often be expensive to organise and hold, but they don’t always have to entail high costs. By keeping these tips in mind and adopting a pragmatic approach, not only are you likely to give your kids a birthday party that they’ll surely enjoy but do so without paying more than necessary.
