  • Betty Crocker cake, candles, blow up latex balloons, rub them on your head to create static, stick them to walls, cheery attitude and sing "Happy Birthday"! :) Parties are about the SPIRIT of things, not the stuff. :)

  • I got everything at the dollar tree. It was a thomas and friends theme. I found a thomas the engine birthday banner, everything else was solid colors (napkins, plates...etc). Thomas and friends bday cake was made at walmart which included a free smash cake. You could always make the cake yourself to save money! I had chips and dip, a fruit and veggie platter, sweet tea and two sodas.

  • btw the banner was found at a specialty store, not dollar tree.

  • Dollar tree, homemade cake or have a potluck, hot dogs are cheap food, so are hamburgers... that or just do nachos... get the chips and cheese sauce ( kids are easily satisfied lol)

  • It's amazing what you can find at the dollar tree....there are tons of things you can use from there. They also have a lot of cute little games you can pick up.
    Funfetti cake mix is really cheap and makes a great rainbow cake to go with any theme.
    You can go to Kroger and get Kroger Brand Hot Dogs, Buns, two liters of pop and chips for pretty cheap.
    The kids will have a blast and you won't have to spend a lot of money.
