In addition to my collection of parties I have planned in the past, I have to say this one was my favorite! It was the party that was planned carefully and followed to the dot. From favors to its theme. It took a good month to plan it, and by God's grace it turned out successful. It was successful not only because of how it was all nicely set up, but because everyone who came truly enjoyed being there.
Here is a quick summary of how frugal this party was. This was my son's 3rd birthday party. The total cost for this party was under $300, that's including location, favors, food and activities. Continue reading under the pictures to tell what I did to keep the cost as little as possible. You can do it too!
PARTY THEME: Breakfast Party with balloons.
|Decorations were easy and simple! T.H.O.P. sign is made out of contact paper. Easy to adhere and take off the wall. 99 cents store had black, green, and yellow plain colors. So I took all the colors.|
|THE AFTER setting. I was very thankful for the outcome.|
|In addition to the setting was the ready to eat fruit cereal on clear cups with spoons attached to it. This is was one of the favorites from the kids.|
|Next to the cereal bar, cold milk was served on ice inside a dispense along with the soymilk from kirkland kept cold inside the bucket with ice.|
|In addition to the fruit cereals, I added a jar of chex cereals just in case the adults felt eating healthy that morning.|
|Right next to the pancake bar was the fruit skewers. My favorite part of the buffet!|
|To encourage the guests to eat pancakes I had to add the whip cream in the ice bucket.|
|And of course, you can't forget the syrup. Maple syrup, chocolate syrup, and my very own homemade strawberry pancake syrup. I'll write a recipe blog about soon!|
|Pancake mix was read to go before the party started. So it was self serve, where the guest can pour however big of a pancake they wanted to make, and add their fresh fruits on top.|
|Yogurt parfaits with my very own berry syrup, plain yogurt, and fresh blueberries. And on the side of the trays were the granola for the guests to get on their own.|
