A lot of people stay away from throwing parties because they think it takes too much time and too much money. Today I want to share with you my little guys rescue bots birthday party and share tips with you on how to throw an amazing party with out the stress or high price tag!
Here is the challenge, put together 12 centerpieces, all for under $20. At first thought it might sound completely doable, but if you have ever thrown a party before, you know that those party expenses can add up super quick!
If you do the math, that makes each centerpiece $1.67, now does this sound a little more of a challenge? Don’t let that discourage you! I am going to show you the very best strategies for throwing a party on a budget!
You know those days where you have been running around from store to store to just get a couple things? You can only find like one thing at each store. So long ensues your scavenger hunt around town to finish checking off your list.
Then… you get home and realize that you still forgot something! Ahhhh!!!!
You might have guessed this is what happened to me today.
Tonight at our church we had a trunk-or-treat activity and of course the kids dress up. Well, to complete their outfits, the kids needed some face paint. That is exactly what I forgot.
Just the thought of running out to the store one more time was torture on its own!
That’s when I thought. “I wonder if I can figure out how to make face paint?”
You know how they talk about the many many MANY hats of a mom. The chef, the chauffer, the nurse, the teacher, the counselor, the doctor, and the list really is endless.
Well, who has the cash to pay for all those outfits? Not this girl! That’s for sure!
The good news is that there is a simple solution to help you dress the part of carpool in the morning and flawlessly transition for a hot hubby date night! All with making a few simple tweaks to a must have closet staple.
One of my top tips when on the hunt for a thrift store find, is to keep your eyes open for patterns and prints that you love. That was the case with this oversized women’s button up shirt.
As my sister and I walked through the aisles of clothing at our last thrift store hunt, this bright print caught my eye. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do with it, but the print yelled “spring” at me. So for $3, I snatched it up!
