Wednesday Wow! DIY birthday party

eaim e4 e3 e2 e1 e5 e6 e7 e8 e9 e10 e11 e12We spent $80.00 on my son’s 6th birthday party

this past Saturday!

It was the BEST Party EVER!


As a parent, we want our child to have great childhood memories. Sometimes the biggest issue in securing it is the cost. In my family, my husband is the penny pincher & I’m the spender. This year, we decided together not to spend over a certain amout for each child birthday. With 6 children in the house it would require much creativity, but we did it.


I called and confirmed the space at Chic Fil A. It was free!  They can jump, play & run as much as they please. I decided to provide a dessert bar & purchase ice cream  for each child.  After all most kids eat dinner before 6pm. I didn’t think anyone would come hungry.

We gathered everything locally. We shopped the Dollar Store, Hobby Lobby and Micheals, from the table, and wall decor to the  birthday boy supplementals must haves! It was worth the time spent in color cordinating.

Cassie, of Cassie’z Sweets donated yummy cake pops, cookies and we threw in beef jerkies, fruit kabobs. EvERyONE helped!  My girl friend helped in staying in budget and Deanna, The Big Sister, enjoyed making the fruity treats.


So on the day of his birthday,

it happened to also be  the day of the birthday party, he threw on his custom shirt, his big brother gave him and the day began. Eaim had a private parade to wake him up outside our front door!  They were awesome. Then hours later, it was party time! The kids came, played ate & went home. I gave them cute lil flashlights, tattoos and pencils from The Rise Of The Gardians as party favors. (I got those from a promoter, they were leftovers)

We didn’t spend much. Didn’t ask for anything other than playmates & everyone had a great time. Our goals were accomplished! We stuck to our budget & our son was happy!  Till next time! e4
