Answer: When you're hosting an event and are "Ballin' On a Budget" - it's imperative to spend your limited funds wisely and make your money extend as far as you possibly can. If you're like this mom, the first thing you need to do is decide when and where you want to hold your party. Depending on the location (if outside of a private residence), if you have it during the week or on a Sunday, your fees will be reduced tremendously. If you can get a venue (like your home or a park) that is close to free as possible, that will reduce your expenses as well. Another consideration would be the number of people to invite to the party, if you have fewer guests, you can make your money go further because you won't have to purchase as much food. Think about using a Groupon or other coupons to purchase the cake and other necessities for the party such as food. A final tip would be to consider perhaps setting up food stations or a potluck. Think about having a ice cream party, or a hot chocolate and cake party or even a mashed potato bar with cupcakes. Those are fairly inexpensive to setup and you can make it fun. Plus, everyone should be able to east something that they enjoy, and that goes for the kids as well as the adults. Those are some budget-savvy tips for someone hosting a party for a 1 year old. Good Luck!
