The last day of school is right around the corner, which means that the planning for countless summer parties will begin! We understand that the planning process is not only stressful, but can become quite costly extremely quickly. Consider following these tips to make your next party budget-friendly.

Instead of buying party invitations from your local party supply store, try adding a personal touch with scrapbook paper! Scrapbook paper can be found at craft stores such as JoAnn’s or Michaels. You can be even more economical and use this scrapbook paper to create personalized banners, or even placemats at the table.

If you have a membership card to wholesale stores such as BJs, Sam’s Club, or Costco, try going there for all of your food-related supplies. Don’t forget the burgers, hot dogs, buns, condiments, and drinks! Or, you can save even more money by using food items that you already have in your pantry and fridge. Try utilizing spices you don’t typically use by putting them in salads or other side dishes. Canned foods also work wonderfully—you can use that can of garbanzo beans to add a unique item to your appetizer platter!

It’s a summer party, so cool down with some frozen treats! Popsicles, frozen fruits, and flavored ice cubes are inexpensive and are incredibly fun.

There are countless ways to make your summer party enjoyable, all while being friendly to your wallet. Remember, have fun with it!
