Who doesn’t love a party? Yet the cost of entertaining often stops a party planning session in its tracks, but there are ways to throw a fabulous shindig without breaking the bank. With these fun yet cheap party decorating ideas and inspiring pictures of party decorations, you can be the host with the most and still have money left over for the food.
Feature the Food
A simple decorative buffet may be the only party decor you need, or do like this party planner in the photo and showcase the dessert table. On a tight budget? Forgo fancy (and expensive) dishes and craft your own. Check out the pedestal bowls in the photo. You can make pedestal bowls from melamine bowls glued to spray-painted candlesticks. Simple, frugal, yet gorgeous!
Take It Outside
Nature makes the perfect party backdrop and natural beauty is decorative enough already, so you won’t need many enhancements to make your party pop. Make sure you offer some seating and a place for guests to set a drink, but depending upon your outdoor space, you may not need much more. Any additional outdoor party decor is up to you.
Make It Pop
What is a party without balloons? If you blow them up yourself, balloons are very inexpensive to use. Choose primary or bright colors for a youthful look, or more mature party goers, stick with one or two colors. Hang balloons from the ceiling with curling ribbon or string, scatter them around on the floor, or use the balloons to create a fun shape (like the birthday number) or backdrop on the wall.
