2. Get Creative

DIY decorations are all about YOU! Make them silly, funky, or elegant – whatever matches your party's theme. The possibilities are endless!

Decorations are awesome, but a party is about more than just fancy streamers! Here's how to extend your creativity and budget-friendly magic to other areas of your celebration:

1. Table Settings with Flair

Ditch matching plates! Mix and match colorful dishes, bowls, and glasses you already have for a fun and funky vibe. 

DIY centerpieces can be as simple as a bouquet of wildflowers in a painted mason jar, or get creative with themed table runners made from fabric scraps. Don't forget playful napkins and colorful cutlery to add pops of personality!

Better yet, use disposable tableware to still add class and style to your table without breaking the bank.

2. Party Favors

Skip the plastic toys and go for homemade treats like decorated cookies or popcorn balls. Printable games and coloring sheets can be a fun and inexpensive favor, especially if you add a bag of crayons or pencils. 

Repurpose old jars or boxes as goodie bags, and decorate them with your party theme for a personal touch!
