Last Saturday we celebrated being debt-free, and today I’m here to share 5 awesome party tips! I would have shared this post sooner, but we called a few of our friends and visited an escape game room and rejoiced in our debt-free lifestyle.
1. Pick a theme!
Since we were celebrating being debt free we chose a money theme. From the decorations to the food – everything was green!
2. Shop the dollar store.
The first place I go for party inspiration is the dollar store. I always end up purchasing cheap decor and gaining lots of ideas for my theme. For our debt free party I picked up these awesome shades for the kids to play with as well as several bags of coin rolls which I used as filler in large vases.
Use your creativity and get to work! I picked up a few poster boards at the dollar store and made these large, hanging spirals.
4. Use things you already have.
If you’re anything like me, you have lots of items around your home that can be put to good use during a party. As usual, my Fiestaware served food and a few coffee cups doubled as utensil holders. I borrowed 2 large drink dispensers from my mom and reused my placecard holders as food labels.
5. Simplify your menu.
This one is probably the hardest for me. When it comes to the menu, I tend to dream big. . .. wwaaayyyyy bigger than what I can actually accomplish. This time I went with a few simple items; green fruit, green veggies, grilled chicken and pork skewers, chips and green salsas.
6. Have fun!
We tried our hand at a few outdoor games, and had a grand night!
