Planning a birthday party can be one of the most difficult things you can do for anyone, but for a young girl it can be even more difficult especially on a budget. Who, what, when, where all these are simple questions that you will find running around inside your head as you are planning this birthday party. These are a few guidelines that can help you or anyone close to you plan your little girl’s birthday.
1. Know your theme
Whatever the occasion, you have to make sure that you clarify your theme right from the start. Christmas, Barbie, Halloween what is the theme of this party going to be. You want all the attention to be our your little girl from the beginning to the end, so she has to stand out over everyone, especially since the party will already be budgeted. Try to find as many themes and opportunities that will give her the most time to shine and be seen by everyone there. If you are planning on doing a party without a theme then feel to ignore this first part and move on to the next part.
2. Know your location
Once you have your theme, the next thing you have to find out is where is your location going to be. If you can afford having it someone at a restaurant or maybe a play center for children by all means, go for it. If you have a budget and it is a very tight one then the best place for you to have this party would be at your home, free of charge.
Since you are on a budget keeping your guest list as small as possible is the best solution. The more people you invite the expensive other things become, like food, and beverage. You should only invite your child’s closest friends and family, for this small event. Make sure to let people know that it is a small event and that they should not be bringing any of their friends or family along for the ride without first talking it over with you to see if it is alright.
4. Food & Beverage
If you are on a really tight budget, here is where your family and closest friends come into play. Get everyone who can help involved. Cookies, chips, cupcakes whatever little thing someone can do helps you in the long run. The more people that can help you with this issue saves a load of money in your budget that can be focused on something else. But make sure that the people who are helping with this part of the plan are invited to the party!
This is where a good chunk of your budget will go to. Buying decorations for the party is one of the most difficult and expensive pleasures you will experience when making this party. It is necessary to know what you are going to get, how much it cost if, are their similar items in other stores for a better price meeting your budget. One thing you should do before making any movements is to go online and do your research.
6. Party Time
Last but not least, the next step is to enjoy the wonderful party that you have put together. Sit back and relax as your child and her friends and family enjoy themselves at the party. Great job!
