25 Birthday Party Tips

"How to Throw a Super Fun, Super Cheap Event" is the subtitle here, so we're not talking extravagance here. We're talking good ideas like throwing a retro party where you play pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey and musical chairs.

A few other fun, budget-friendly ideas:

• Throw a costume party so parents can use that Halloween costume one more time.

• It can't get much simpler than taping a roll of butcher paper up on the wall and giving the kids paint and brushes- *do make sure that wall is covered well!

• Have a birthday parade! Have kids bring their trykes, little toy cars, and wagons; decorate them, and take the procession around the neighborhood. Now that's a procession we'd love to see going through our neighborhood.
