A patriotic party on a budget?
Festive and frugal parties are The Budget Diet Girl’s specialty, and I’ve put together my fav ideas for your frugal Fourth of July Party.
P.S. – I promise you’ll spend less than $50!
Festive and Frugal Fourth of July Party
Option #1: Free Printables! Click on the image above, and you’ll be given instructions to download and print these festive party invitations. There are coordinating menu place cards, water bottle labels, a banner and cupcake toppers that you print at home. Oh…did I mention that it’s all FREE!
Option #2: Go with a simple Evite. They’re free, sent via email and your guests are reminded to rsvp!
Option #1: Remember those free printables?
Option #2: DIY! Let your kids help you make these festive and frugal fourth of July decorations.
Option #3: If DIY is not your thing, then I suggest dollar store decor.
Option #4: “Shop” your house. Walk around and gather anything that’s red, white & blue.
Fire up the grill and go for the all-American hot dog! Ask your guests bring their own beverages, chairs and a side dish to share – ta-da…you have a party without spending a fortune on food.
You’ve just got to make my Patriotic White Chocolate Crunch. It’s a super simple snack mix made with Chex, pretzels, peanuts, white chocolate and red/blue M&M’s. Click here for the recipe, and be warned…you can’t stop eating this stuff!
If you can see the fireworks from your home, you’ve got built-in entertainment.
Before the fireworks, put out an assortment of yard games like horseshoes, corn hole, volleyball and a slip-n-slide.
Don’t forget how much fun running through the sprinkler can be!
How about a watermelon seed-spitting contest or a water balloon toss? Pick up the prizes at the dollar store.
