With Christmas and New Year’s Day coming, you might be having a party or two at your home! It can get really expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. We host a lot of parties, year round at our home, so I’ve learned a thing or two about keeping the cost down and the fun up.
2. Make your own decorations.
Finding printables online to print and hang up, or coming up with cute banners that you cut and paste with letters, are fun and add to the feel of the party. Whatever season it is, incorporate that as part of your party colors or decor. Even making your own pom poms to hang can be easy and very inexpensive with tissue paper. Make place cards simple by cutting out shapes and sticking into a fork, as below.
3. Keep the guest list small.
10. Plan ahead.
With a little bit of planning, you can find the time to make decorations, get your place in shape, ask for help, send out emailed invitations, without going crazy or breaking the bank!
