Is someone in your life deserving of a party? Perhaps a friend or loved one is celebrating a milestone birthday, or has achieved a promotion at work, or is moving back to the Twin Cities after some years away. There are many reasons that we would want to celebrate the special people in our lives. But what if those people aren’t into party planning, or don’t want to feel like they’re a burden? This is when a surprise party might be a great idea
If you’re throwing a surprise party, you’re probably planning it alone, or with just a few other people – which could make your party budget tight. But you don’t need to spend a lot to host a successful surprise party! Read on for a few tips on how to throw a surprise party without spending a lot.
If you wait until the last minute to rent party supplies, order a cake, buy decorations or put together party games and favors, you’re more likely to spend a lot. Giving yourself plenty of time to work out the details and scout for deals can get you the best selection and save significant cash.
Ask for Help
It’s easy to justify paying for convenience when you’re planning a surprise party alone. Ask friends or family members for help in the planning or execution of the party – for example, send someone else to pick up tablecloths or glassware. Knowing that you have reliable help will make it easier to stick to your budget.
Choose a Cost-Effective Location
Instead of a bar or restaurant, throw your party at home, at a friend’s house, or at a free or inexpensive location like a local park or rec center. It may not be as fancy, but we can guarantee that the guest of honor won’t care! Which leads us to our last tip…
Remember the Reason for the Party
You’re throwing this party to honor someone special in your life who deserves to be celebrated. Focus on that instead of the minute details of the party. The look on the guest of honor’s face when they walk in the room will make it all worth it.
