Kid's Birthday Party Ideas That Won't Cost The Earth

Children’s birthday parties can get quite expensive, quite fast. There’s the presents, the cake, the food for everyone who’s attending, not to mention a trip out somewhere. Here are our top tips on how to throw a kid’s birthday party that doesn’t cost a fortune. Read on to find out more.


Don’t go overboard on the food

NetMums suggests that a great way to save money on a kid’s birthday party is not to go overboard on the food. Rather than providing loads and loads of different bits and bobs of food, sit down and work out how much each child is likely to eat and divide the amount of food that you have between them. If that seems reasonable then you have enough.

Double up

Parents.com suggests that a great way of throwing a kid’s birthday party on a budget is to combine it with a friend’s. Does your child have a friend or a sibling with a birthday in the same month or week? If so why not double up and combine the two parties, reducing the costs for everyone involved.

Timing is everything

Stayathomemum.co.uk suggests that one of the keys to throwing a kid’s birthday bash on a budget is to time it right. If your party takes place between lunch and tea then it is likely that those attending will have already eaten and won’t be expecting a full meal or even lots of snacks.

Of course, there is one other option…
