You can keep things simple, or go all out, depending on the type of party and how big you want to make it. There are some simple ways to save money on party decorations. Your party can be special without requiring you to spend more than you are able.

How to Save on Party Decorations

Shop the After Holiday Sales
The best time to buy decorative plates, cups, and napkins that are in a holiday theme is shortly after the holiday is over. Is there a particular holiday that you always celebrate with a party? Remember to shop the after-holiday sale this year. Store those low priced decorations away and use them for next year’s parties.

Make Your Own Decorations
What’s going to mean more to your family member? A store-bought banner that says “Happy Birthday!” or one that was made by that person’s children? Most people would find the homemade version, lovingly created by family members, to be more valuable.

Use craft supplies that you already have at home. This is the type of party decoration that can be used for the birthday parties of more than one family member. The hand made banner can become a traditional part of family birthday parties.

Shop for Bargains
Dollar stores are great places to shop for party decorations. You won’t find things like streamers, paper plates and napkins, or plastic tablecloths for a lower price anywhere else. Some Dollar Stores will sell helium balloons for parties. Often, the price at the Dollar Store is lower than what it would cost to buy the same helium balloons from a party store or grocery store.

Don’t forget to check out the bargain bins at department stores. Target has an ever-changing selection of items that you can buy for low prices (often for just $1.00). You could find holiday themed paper napkins, paper plates, and other party decorations there.

Save Things for Next Year
Decorations for Halloween parties tend to be elaborate. It’s ok to spend a little extra on something creepy to amuse your guests with. Pay for the decoration once – use it at many Halloween parties.

Paper plates, napkins, and tablecloths, that come in certain colors, can be easily reused. Red ones are great for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and all patriotic holidays. Green is good for Christmas and St. Patrick’s Day. Orange can be used at both Halloween and Thanksgiving parties.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
