Planning a Kids Party on a Budget
6. If you can't stomach the thought of paying for a cake made at your local bakery, but are cake decorating challenged, you can always make cupcakes instead and have the birthday boy or girl help you frost and decorate them with sprinkles. Having the honorary birthday child help with the decorations will also add a fun and personal touch to their party.
7. For home-based or out of home parties, try to keep the guest list to a minimum. While it might be tempted to invite their whole class to the party, we recommend that smaller is best, limiting the guest count to about 10 kids total. Not only does this save on money however, it will also be easier for the birthday child to interact with everyone equally. And it will lessen the amount of times you hit up the Advil bottle as well!
