Top 5 Ways to Keep Your Party on Budget
1. Tap your friends’ talents
We usually think pot-luck here, but where else could you put your friends’ talents to use?
2. Use a non-trademarked theme
Themes help focus your purchases and other decisions. Trademarked themes can be very expensive.
3. Offer fewer options
People are more relaxed when there are fewer choices to make and offering fewer choices can save you money.
4. Think a single signature drink etc.
Have a single course party
Just drinks, just dessert…keep in mind the fewer options part here too!
5. Think food extenders/dollar stretchers
Pasta, Rice and Potatoes have been used to extend food and money for centuries!
When all else fails, narrow the guest list.
