5 Tips for a birthday on a budget

 
 

Birthdays can be an exciting and wonderful time of the year, check out the Hectic Nine 9 birthday episode for example. But not everyone can afford to have 4 cakes and have 50 people over for a party. So here are 5 tips on how to have an awesome birthday on a budget.

  • Free venues

First thing’s first, location, location, location. Renting a space can be incredibly expensive and can definitely eat into your budget so instead look for places you can go or get into for free like a beach or park. We live in a beautiful country so you shouldn’t struggle to find a spot.

  • Short guest list

We all know that urge to invite the entire class if not the entire school to your party but you really don’t need 100 people to have a good time. Try and keep it small and intimate so as to keep it simply and keep costs for entertainment and catering down.

  • Simple catering

Speaking of catering, try and keep it simple and easy, minimal prep time is good but you could also cook with your friends as an activity which could be quite fun. Making food at home is usually the best way like homemade pizzas or a braai. Also don’t be afraid to ask your friends to bring something small to contribute to the fun times.

  • Themes and decorations

If you do want to have a specific theme for your party try not to go too over the top with it, a costume party is great but not if no one can get the right costumes or you can’t get the right decorations. Also try and make your own decorations, there are plenty of DIY decorations out there that you can make to spice up your party.

  • Plan around an event

Lastly and most sneakily, if you have an event that you and your friends are already doing or going to then why not turn it into a sneaky birthday bash. Just let your friends know, throw in a cake if you can and have fun with your peeps cause after all it’s the company that really makes the party.

We hope these tips helped you plan an amazing birthday party that you will never forget. Let us know if you have any ideas for a birthday on a budget leave it in the comments.
