No Budget, No Problem: How to Throw a Party on a Shoestring Budget

A family celebrating a child's birthdaySo you need to make a party or event work. If you’ve got the money, even the most expensive event rentals St. Paul, MN, has to offer can be within an arm’s reach. Party planners at Après Event Décor & Tent Rental know the real battle begins if you’re working on a tight budget. Can you still manage to throw a party that’s not a sleeper?

Pointers for Penny Pinchers

Working with a small budget isn’t a strange thing; more often than not, this is the case. The most memorable parties, however, are the ones that follow these tips:

  • Creative Invitations. If you need invitations, you should go the route of DIY. Sometimes, the best invitations aren’t the ones bought at a store. The best ones come from the minds of people on a tight budget.
  • Proper Allocation. In the first place, you should create a budget and stick to it. Do you need food? Drinks? There are other ways to supply these without going over budget. Eliminate everything else that the event can do without.
  • Budget Food. Splurging on food is okay — if you have the money for it. Otherwise, there are more creative food choices you can offer your guests. Having a wide range of food caterers so you can compare prices will do you good.
  • BYOB or Single Drinks. The two routes — bring your own bottle (BYOB) and single drinks — can fit your tight budget. BYOB is fun if you’re serving guests that aren’t choosy with their drinks. Single liquors, however, gives a classier feel if your party is a little bit more sophisticated.
  • Creative Decorations. Be creative with the decorations! Like invitations, decorations can be more creative when you make them yourself. You can also showcase these and show off your creativity.

A Memorable Shindig

Knowing the scope of your party, as well as how classy or simple it needs to be, makes for a party that your guests will remember.
