4 Tips for Planning a Baby Shower On A Budget

Hosting an amazing baby shower doesn’t mean you need to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars! Making careful choices when it comes to your food, gifts, games, and baby shower banquet hall in Bucks County can allow you to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon with family and friends without breaking the bank. Use these four tips below to save more as less spent on your party means more money for when your little one arrives!

  • Set a clear budget beforehand. The best way to avoid overspending on your shower is to set hard budget limits beforehand. Sit down and decide how much you can spend total on your shower. Then, allocate money for the essentials: food, décor, a banquet hall in Bucks County, etc. Clearly defining how much you’re willing to spend in each area will help you better stay on-track.
  • Ask friends for a helping hand. If you have friends helping you plan the party, enlist them to assist with a specific task. For example, you might ask one friend to cover games, another to bring along a side dish, and another to handle the cake or cupcakes. This allows you to save money without making any of your guests feel overwhelmed.
  • Get creative with your decorations. Instead of buying decorations and throwing them away, why not create some of your own? Head over to your local dollar store and check out the crafting aisle—from glitter to confetti to streamers, you’ll find everything you need at a fraction of the party store’s prices.
  • Look around your home for prizes. Everyone loves to play games and win prizes at a baby shower, but that doesn’t mean that you need to run out and spend money on extravagant gifts! Look around your home and see if you have anything worth “re-gifting” as a prize for your shower—like that candle your cousin got you for Christmas.
