Everyone loves a rocking year end party, but we all know how expensive arranging one can be. From decorations to food and beverages, there’s much to be bought to throw a memorable party. But what to do if you’re on a budget? No need to fret because we have put together tried and tested tips that will help you arrange an exciting bash without burning a hole in your pocket.

So, let’s find out how you can save money but still throw an unforgettable party.

DIY your own décor with balloons

Decoration is an essential part of any party. While it’s easy to skip it, the right décor can add life to your home and set the mood for celebration. Nowadays, you can find elaborate decoration settings for every party, from New Year’s to graduation and baby showers. But there’s no need to splurge on superficial additions when there is a cheaper way to achieve the same results.

All you need to buy are colorful balloons that compliment your year end party theme and enliven your space. You can also find metallic options that go with most New Year party themes and settings.

Save money on wine and alcohol

Unless you want to be remembered as ‘the person who arranged the best wine for a New Year party,’ you can easily opt for cheaper alternates that work the same way. Don’t overspend on expensive alcohol and wine; instead, look for the best deals you can find in online stores like Frabelle Marketplace.

Another excellent way to save money is by downloading the Atome app (Get the app) and searching for the best deals and offers on liquor across various stores in the Philippines.

BYOB isn’t a bad idea either; remember to mention it on the year end party invitation so all your guests come prepared with their own bottles of alcohol.

Make your own party snacks

Although snacks are never the center of attention at parties, they are essential regardless, as all the dancing and lounging around makes guests feel ravenous. There are many ready-to-use snack items that you can buy for your New Year party, but they can disturb your budget owing to high prices.

Making your own party snacks is an excellent way to curb party expenses and add a touch of your personal taste to the food items. If you aren’t keen on arranging an entire New Year’s Eve party food buffet, you can always ask your friends and family members to pitch in. This way, you can have a little pre-party with your besties before the actual event.

Don’t buy a new outfit

While buying a new outfit for every party is tempting, it’s not always a wise plan of action because the holiday season can be expensive, as is with all the gift shopping. So, rummage through your closet for forgotten gems instead of looking for a new piece of apparel in stores. You can always repurpose or style your old clothes differently to make them pop out.

The money you save on clothes can be spent on other year end party ideas like party favors or gifts for winners of New Year party games.
