We are on full-on birthday mode in our house this week, as my youngest turns 3 at the weekend.We are having her party at home, which is a great way to help keep the costs down. To keep on track with the organisation I have been using our birthday party checklist.

Frugal Tips to keep birthday party costs down

  • Save money on invitations by making your own or sending an email or text instead.
  • Buy basic plates, cups and napkins instead of over-priced themed versions.
  • Make your own birthday banners or bunting to decorate the party room.
  • Keep food simple and make what you can yourself.
  • Bake your own cake.
