Here are some tips on how to keep the cost low.
Food & Drinks
- Make your party food from scratch. Pre-packed food can cost quite a bit of money so make it yourself.
- Get you guests involved in the food, ask them all to bring something to add to the table.
- Buy supermarket branded drinks they are cheaper and taste just as nice.
- Make a big bowl of punch and make your drink go further
- Ask guests to bring a bottle
Tableware & Decorations
- Don't discount the discounters! Checkout Poundworld, Poundland and Aldi for cheap decorations and tableware

- Make a playlist on your computer, ensure its got plenty of party tunes and enjoy the day! I use Spotify but there are plenty out there to use
- If the children need entertaining give them some fairycakes to ice, they double as dessert!
- Face painting is a great way to entertain the children Snazaroo have some great sets including these Paint Sticks £2.99. They also have how to guides on their site.
These can be an added expensive so why not vamp up clothes you already have but adding accessories:
- I love this ribbon from Jane Means, you it your or your child's hair. Or tie around a plain dress.
- Next have a lovely Jubilee selection from Scarf's to Hats.
I hope this have given you some ideas on how to have a great party on a small budget.
Have a great Jubilee Weekend.
