Preparing an accurate party budget is so important, whether you are planning a big or small event.
It is easy to spend, spend, spend when you are planning a party. But having a budget will help keep costs under control.
Here are some possible items to keep in mind that you will need to plan for, if needed. Customize the list for your specific needs.
If you are hiring a party planner, they may charge up to a 15% surcharge. Other times, they'll charge a flat fee per person. In some cases, folks feel that this surcharge is absolutely worth it. To me, it depends the amount of time you have to devote to planning and organizing the details of the party, your budget, and whether or not you want to organize the party or if you'd rather leave the little details to someone else.
For a party at home, you may be able to play music on your home speakers, borrow folding tables and chairs and get a friend to take the photos. Invitations and decorations can be as expensive or inexpensive and creative as you like.
If your party plan is bigger than your budget, you'll have to prioritize and see where you can get creative! Don't worry - this Easy Party Ideas and Games website is you'll find some ideas that will help you do it yourself!
