Throwing a Thrifty “Fancy” Birthday Party

Posted on October 22nd, 2012 by Discount Debbie

My daughter just turned 2. She’s the most fabulous little girl in the world. I just adore her. She’s sweet, she’s funny and she’s just nice to be around. We really enjoy her. However, when she was born it was scary. She had some major health problems that led to an early delivery and 3 week NICU stay. So when I’ve celebrated her two birthdays, I was celebrating too making it through a scary time in our lives.

Which is why I decided to go WAY out for her 2nd birthday. I’ll be honest and say it was more for me since she’ll never remember it. But she’ll have pictures which you’ll see below. I decided to throw her a “Milk and Cookies” themed birthday party. Pinterest gave me a thousand ideas and about 4 months ago I started planning. Which is also the number 1 way to save money–plan way ahead!

Her party was incredible. We pulled out all the stops and it looked like we spent a fortune, but I put my Thrifty Diva money saving skills into use. Here are some things I did that will help you too.

1. Plan ahead. Like I said, last minute planning will cost you extra. You don’t have time to shop around and you can’t find sale items last minute usually.

2. DIY-Do it yourself! Or get a friend to. I have a friend who is crazy, awesome creative and made every one of my daughter’s amazing decorations. I didn’t buy one thing for decorations. She did everything from the banner to the little cookie labels. It looked like it was all out of a magazine. You could not have bought better stuff and it was all personalized. I am totally not crafty at all, but thankfully my friends are and will help. I bet your friends will help too!

3. Cook it yourself. This is pretty obvious, but it’s cheaper to make the food yourself. I made my new favorite appetizer. Three words that will change your life, BACON. WRAPPED. LITTLE SMOKIES. You’re welcome for this party in your mouth. It’s the best and were gone in 5 minutes flat. The only embarrassing thing is that people can count your toothpicks to see how many you’ve had :/.

4. Skip the invites. Everyone is on Facebook, and that’s free. It will save you $10-$20. I didn’t hear any complaints.

5. Try to get discounts. I am very fortunate to be a professional photographer and know a lot of vendors. I really wanted a crazy awesome professional cake and my favorite vendor gave me a discount for being a fellow vendor. You may not be in the same situation as I am, but maybe you have other people that will give you discounts for another reason. Don’t be afraid to ask professionals to barter with you if you do anything to trade for.

Now for my favorite part, all the pretty pictures!

Thrifty Tip: DIY Party Hats

Posted on September 28th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

 

 

My husband’s birthday is coming up this weekend. And, my 3 1/2 year old daughter has been SO excited about getting ready for daddy’s birthday. Since she’s now at the age of being able to help and really wanting to get involved, we decided to make our own party hats!

Since the “party” guest list corresponds with the number of people in our household (four!), I decided that I wanted to make cute hats but didn’t want to buy anything to make them. When my husband and my daughter talked about the different color hats each one of us should wear, I knew we had construction paper I could pull out to make it happen.

So, I did some research online and found some very cute DIY party hats we could have made if I had bought a few other items. In any case, here’s what I used:

construction paper

crayons

glue stick

scotch tape

scissors

ribbon

I cut the construction paper in a cone shape, pictured here:

I decided to cut out some triangles, squares and little squiggly lines to help decorate each person’s name on the hat.

Then, I decorated with what we had. It’s very simple. But, with an 18 month old and a 3 1/2 year old, it’s perfect :)

Mommy’s was the test hat. My daughter will do the art work on the rest of them :)

What DIY projects have you done with your toddlers?
