My oldest daughter is turning 12 and wants a simple sleepover party. You can imagine my inner joy when she said that. Home parties can cost so much less. Note, I say CAN, not DO, because it's easy to go overboard with a home party.
I thought I'd share with you my plans for our home birthday party.
Bayberry is having a slumber party. We took into consideration her age and interests in planning her party. We did not have the most frugal party possible. There are places we could have cut corners and costs. I'll talk about that later. We did manage to save a lot of money anyway!
Here's our plan and what it's costing us:
- Twilight series movies -- already owned Cost = $0
- facials and nail painting -- homemade facials and we already own the nail polish Cost = $0
- popcorn, oil, salt -- Cost = $3.00
- 2 bags of chips -- Cost = $3.00
- bag of m&m candies -- Cost = $1.50
- Ice cream cake -- Cost = $12.00
- Homemade cupcakes -- Cost = $4.00
- Hawaiian Punch, 2 bottles -- Cost = $4.00
- Tombstone Pizzas (3) -- Cost = $6.00
