Throwing a Holiday Party on a Budget

The holidays are a time of gift giving, family bonding, party throwing, and food eating! It should be a time of merriment and cheer. Unfortunately, for many, the pressures to spend money on extravagant gifts and parties take away from the holiday fun.

The Holidays don’t have to be a time of over indulging and over spending. There are plenty of ways to enjoy this time of year to the fullest and not empty your wallet.

This year, don’t let your budget stop you from enjoying the holidays or throwing that holiday party you have always dreamed of hosting. We have gathered a few helpful tips for you to throw an incredible holiday party on a budget!

Simple decor

For the holidays a little goes a long way. Lights are an inexpensive way to transform a space and create a festive feel throughout a room.

Instead of striving to make every room of your house picture perfect with festive decor, create one statement piece at the center of it all. A photo op. or beautiful centerpiece will draw enough attention! Search online for simple diy decor ideas to save money where ever you can!

Holiday drinks

Supplying drinks and alcohol can be the most expensive part of hosting a party. Consider providing holiday themed drink such a eggnog, hot chocolate, or apple cider instead of alcohol.

If alcohol is a must, set up a fun themed drink cart so people can serve themselves or make your event BYOB.

Guest participation

Instead of purchasing party favors for all your guests, get them involved in the action! Instruct all your visitors to bring a small gift and create a game out of exchanging presents. That way, no one leaves empty handed!
