A Birthday party doesn't have to cost a fortune and some of the best Birthday Parties can be held even on a tight budget. Never spend more than you can afford is one of the main criteria.
For a child's Birthday Party they will want a Birthday cake but here again you don't need to spend alot of money if you simply cannot afford a big cake. Many supermarkets nowadays do small individual cakes for Birthdays and these are just as good as a large Birthday Cake.
Hiring a childrens entertainer for your little ones Birthday can be a good idea and they are not all that expensive when you think what they are going to do. A magic show, games, party music and lots more keeping the little ones entertained for the whole time at the party. This is one stress that can be taken from your shoulders in one go leaving you just to sort the food out.
You don't have to splash out on too much food as just because they are out at a party doesn't mean that they will eat more. Sandwiches and cake works best for most.
A party is meant to be a fun time for your son or daughter and this is by far the main thing that you need to think about when you come up with ideas and not how to spend the most amount of money.
