Celebrating your little girl’s birthday doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, there are a lot of things you can do to ensure your child has a great day, and not break your budget. First, think about the cake. Making a cake is simple, and decorating it is just as easy. Many cake stores or baking supply stores now give you the option of buying all kinds of decorations including crowns and jewels made of icing and sugar, and varieties of edible glitter. With just a few of these, you can make a cake that looks great and tastes great too.
Your next step should be thinking about simple accessories for a party. To keep costs down, drape chairs with white sheets and add some gold ribbon to them. Let the kids at the party draw and cut out their own crowns and decorate them with glitter and stickers. This will not only keep them busy, but ensures they all feel like royalty. For your little girl, get sparklers on a cake to make it really special, or buy pink candles.
Get napkins that encompass a princess theme or look for a plastic tablecloth decorated with lots of pink and glitter. These types of accessories are quite easy to find and won’t cost you a lot of money. If you go into a costume or accessories store, you can usually find these items for sale. If you struggle to find them, try looking online. You may find that there are a lot of stockists online who have regular sales and will even deliver for free.
If you want to keep it simple, why not make cupcakes for the occasion and then let the kids decorate them? This will keep them busy for a long time, will give them a treat they can enjoy and will make every little girl feel special on the day. Remember to take lots of photos and if you want to, engage your daughter in a scrapbooking project to remember the day. You can use glitter, stickers or even let your daughter draw things that remind her of her special day.
