  • Quickly and easily plan your child's birthday party.
  • Know how to host an outstanding birthday party for your child on tight budget.
  • Implement three frugal parties with three frugal budgets - you get to choose the budget you want to work with

What ages are the parties best for?

The three frugal parties included in this guide work best for kids ages 3-16. Each party has tips on how to make the party theme work for the differing ages between 3-16.

How will I know this party will work for my child's age?

All 3 parties include ways to adapt the party to fit your child's age. Each party will work great for kids ages 3-16.

Where should I get my supplies?

We suggest you shop at your local Walmart, Dollar Tree, etc. Or you can purchase most of the necessary supplies online using our handy Supply List.

Will the party still cost the full budgeted amount if I don't have 10 party guests?

No! It will cost less! The majority of the budget for each of the 3 parties included, goes towards the supplies. If you have less guests, you won't need to buy as many supplies.

Does each party include games and activities?

Yes! Each of the 3 complete parties included in this guide ALSO include games and activities specific to the party theme.

Do the parties work better for boys or girls?

Each of the 3 complete parties are perfect for both boys and girls together! All 3 themes are gender nuetral and work great for an all boy party, all girl party, or a combination of both!

How do I know the Choose Your Budget Party Guide is right for me?

The Choose Your Budget Party Guide is for anyone who's ready to ditch the party planning stress that comes from hosting your child's birthday party. Whether you are on a tight budget, or you are working within a short time frame, or maybe you just don't want to worry about having to come up with a unique idea for your child's party this year, this guide will help you create an outstanding party your child and all his/her friends will love!

This practical guide is for anyone planning their child's birthday party, whether you are a mom, step-mom, grandmother, or even a party planning dad!

Is this guide really worth the cost?

Yes! Our Choose Your Budget Party Guide includes more than $97 in resources, but as part of this limited-time offer, you can grab it for just $19. It's an outsanding value you won't want to miss! Just think of it this way, because there are three parties included, you'll have three years worth of birthday parties already planned for less than $7 per plan!  

What else will I need to buy in order to host one of the included parties?

I've included a supply list with each party detailing what you need to buy and how much. These additional supplies are included in the overall party budget. You can choose to buy all the supplies I suggest, or only get the stuff you need. If you don't buy all of the supplies, your overall party budget will be even less than what is stated in the guide.  

How can I be sure that my party will not go over the pre-set budget?

The simple answer is that you can't. Our three frugal parties have been designed to fit their pre-set budget, but we realize we can not control prices of all the supplies. We have done the best we can to ensure you can host an outstanding party, but we cannot guarantee that the prices you find on supplies either online, or locally will keep your party completely in budget.

It's not just a book, it's a complete resource of tools and ideas to help you quickly and easily plan your child's birthday party. Please note that all materials are delivered digitally in PDF format.
