1st Birthday Party on a Budget!
Looking for a 1st Birthday Party on a Budget? Here’s the plan (for a girl)…
1st Birthday Party Invitation:
First Birthday Poem –
(name) will soon be one,
and you’re invited to join the fun!
On (date) at the hour of three,
(address) is the place to be!
We’ll make a bonnet,
with frills upon it,
and have a tea party,
so don’t be tardy!
Print & tie the invitation to a miniature straw hat (sold in the doll section of craft stores) & hand deliver.
The guests were mostly adults and older children. As the invitation said, we made her a bonnet with frills upon it…gluing buttons, bows, curling ribbons and pom poms to the hat. At the end of the party, my daughter had a great hat to use for dress-up in the years to come.
Tea Party food was just right…finger sandwiches, petit fours for the cake, etc.
Total Cost: Less than $50 for 15 guests!
