Grace just turned 3 and she requested a pink birthday party. I kept the decorations pretty simple, but I also wanted it to look nice.
I only spent $5 on her easy birthday decorations. Here is how:
- Plastic Table Cloth – I bought 2 for $1.00 each. One covered our large table. The other one I cut apart to cover two card tables and her gift table. I saved these to use for another party or to cover tables during art projects.
- Crate Paper Streamers – I bought 1 pack for $1.00. I frayed the streamers and used them as a runner down the large table.
- Balloons – I bought 2 packs for $1.00 each. I used a needle and thread to string them together. Then I hung them from the window blinds, down our open staircase, and off the chandelier.
- Curly Ribbon – This was free. I grab it from my stash of gift wrap bows, cut it apart, and sprinkled it down the center of the table and around the cake.
I did all of my shopping at Dollar Tree (where everything is $1) and Walmart. I was actually more impressed with Walmart. The party supply selection was much better and everything was $0.97. Next time I’ll probably skip Dollar Tree.
This cost did not include any of the food, cake, or paper products.
