How To Throw A Kids’ Birthday Party On A Budget

When you have children, each birthday feels like a milestone. After all, who doesn’t get nostalgic and a little weepy when their child turns another year older? Having kids constantly feels like a race against time; you blink, and all of a sudden they are taller, smarter, more eloquent, and more mischievous than ever!

We all want to give our kids the world, but unlike Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner, most of us can’t afford to build our children a brand new theme park for their birthday! What we can do, however, is make as much effort as we can to ensure the day is special – no matter the budget.

Here’s how to throw a kids’ birthday party on a budget.

  1. Make the cake yourself – it’s more special that way!

Although it can be tempting to splash out on a super expensive, fancy, enormous birthday cake, your child doesn’t expect that of you. Your child is not scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest, tagging cakes they just can’t wait to try. On the contrary – your child wants a birthday cake, but that’s the extent of their wishes! Making the cake yourself is much more budget-friendly, and will feel all the more special to both your child and your extended family.

If you do want to bake a themed birthday cake, such as a Frozen 2 birthday cake, you can look online for themed cake recipes. These are relatively simple to put together and don’t require any professional baking skills!

  1. Keep balloons, ribbons and decorations from year to year.

Remember in the nineties, when it was normal to use the same birthday and Christmas decorations from year to year? Let’s bring it back. Our everything-new culture has made it so that recycling outfits and decorations seems odd, but in actual fact, it’s a very normal thing to do. 

If you splash out on birthday decorations for your home birthday party, keep them for next year. Sure, some of them might be outgrown eventually – but saving these items means you won’t be spending a lot every single year. 

  1. Invite their favourite people and they won’t notice much else!

Your kids’ favorite people are the only thing that matters on their special day. If you invite their friends and cherished family members for cake, games, and laughter, your child will be happier than ever. 

Sure, you can hire magicians and Disney princesses to sweeten the deal, but the core of your child’s birthday party is made up of loving guests who want to celebrate with you. Make sure you focus on that and don’t give in to the pressures of throwing a spectacular birthday party for a young child. Your child, like all kids, just wants to feel special on their day – there’s nothing else to it!

Final thoughts…

Throwing a children’s birthday party when you have a limited budget can be a little stressful, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it work! Use these tips to assist in your mission to throwing the best budget birthday bash the world has ever seen!
