Tips for Planning A Theme Party On A Budget

There is a lot of excitement that comes with planning a theme party. Finding the perfect theme, getting party supplies that go with that theme, and looking for the perfect decorations for your party are all things that add to the excitement of a theme party.

But as exciting as it is to create your perfect party theme, there is also a downside.

If you aren't careful, you could wind up spending a lot more money on your party than you bargained for.

Sure, you want your theme party to be spectacular, but if you are going to wake up the day after your party with no money in your pocket and a ton of leftover party supplies, will you still think it's worth it?

Luckily your theme party doesn't have to be expensive.

One of the great things about theme parties is that if you know how to get creative, you can create a theme party that no one will ever forget without breaking your budget.

Here are just a few tips to help you out:

Don't Have the Money to Buy Pictures? Find them on the Internet! –

One of the biggest things that brings a theme party together is having pictures that represent symbols of your theme all around your home.

For example, let's say that you are having a Hunger Games theme party on a budget.

Simply grab some pictures off of the net, laminate them, and attach them to your cups and plates, or even put them around your home as decorations.

Watch Those Paper Products

One of the things that can cost a big expense to your theme party budget is your paper products.

Just buying those pretty products that have your theme on them can really put a dent in your budget.

Even worse, no one is really going to remember your party for the plates and the napkins.

Instead of putting your money towards paper products that have your theme on them, choose colors that are a part of your theme and add those colors around your home.

For instance if you are throwing an Angry Birds theme party, you can choose paper products in the colors of the birds.

In addition, you can also choose streamers, tablecloths, and wall decorations that also match the colors of the birds.

Print Your Invitations

Usually invitations come in packs of 8.

If you are having a party with only 8 people, that doesn't seem like much of an expense.

But what if you are having a party with 16 or 20 people?

The cost of those invitations can add up really quickly if you are not careful.

If you already have a color printer and ink at your home, it may be cheaper to buy some printer paper and design your own invitations.

You can use pictures off of the internet and even use colored printer paper that matches the colors of your theme.

Another easy way to send invitations is to use e-vites instead of buying or mailing invites.

This way, all you have to do is spend a few minutes online and you can send all of your invitations without any hassle. And best of all, they are usually free.

Planning a theme party leaves you with a lot of options, but it is very easy to get carried away and lose track of your budget.

Use these simple tips to stay on track and keep the cost of your theme party down.
