Inexpensive Birthday Party Ideas

Birthday parties can be a lot of fun and inexpensive! Here are some of our ideas for a fun party that is easier on your wallet.

  • The Pseudo Sleepover: A sleepover can be a big task for any mom and dad. Kolcraft’s friend Sharon suggests the pseudo sleepover. This birthday party includes all of the sleepover essentials: guests wear their pajamas, watch a movie, eat pizza, and play games. Depending on your child’s age, end the party at 10:30. All of the kids will have a great night’s sleep after a night of fun. Best of all, they’ll enjoy their own beds.
  • Alternatives in accessories: Visiting a party store can put a strain?) on anyone’s budget. Try and think of alternatives to your decorations, party favors, and activities. If you were throwing a Hawaiian themed luau you can use black garbage bags to create everyone’s grass skirt. The drawstrings offer a way to tie the bag around your party guests and you can cut the ends into the skirt. You also can buy paper bags for your guests to decorate and create their own party favor bag. It adds an activity to your party and personalizes the experience for the kids.

Do you have your own inexpensive party tips? We would love to try them or feature them in a future blog. Happy Party Time!

    I’m glad to see you talking about this! There has been a trend among the families of kids in my little girl’s daycare to have smaller yet still fun birthday parties.

    For her party, we did cupcakes instead of a full cake, and got them from the supermarket rather than a boutique cupcake shop. We ordered pizzas for lunch and had milk and sofa for the older kids. We did one activity where kids made a craft, and their goodie bags were a bucket, pail and water bottle. It didn’t take much time or money to put it together and the best part was – the kids had an awesome time!

    Simple, yet elegant, and you have a win-win!
