This is probably going to be one of my favorite things to blog about because there's nothing I love more then throwing a party! Especially when I get a challenge of only spending $25! But as you can see, it CAN BE DONE!! And it can be done without anyone being able to see where you cut costs!
The first way I cut costs, was I made everything! And most of the decorations were made out of scrapbook paper which is super cheap! Buying these same decorations would have cost me at least triple what I spent!
(The tissue paper flowers are really in right now and completely spruce up any party!
Only costing $3 for all of them!)
Another way was by making only one area to display instead
of decking out an entire house! I always have gone all out when decorating for parties and
usually end up spending easily over $100!
A more obvious way was by making my own cake and cupcakes- One thing I love to do!
Because as everyone knows, buying a cake alone will cost around $25!
If you have no idea about cake decorating, just google some ideas and you'll
easily find step by steps on how to make the cake you want!
(Googling things is how I learned how to make cakes!)
(Here's the birthday boy! He is so shy in front of the camera!)
(cupcakes with little airplanes!)
(Me with Gabe, this was the biggest smile I could get out of him!)
