Party on a Budget


Mustang's 4th birthday party is Saturday and we will be having 4 little girls join us for a celebration. With a new baby, a job change, moving, and well life in general, we are on a limited budget (who isnt?). So, I was thrilled to find our party favors for very little money at the Dollar Tree (my 2nd favorite store after the thrift).

I found these fun fairy wings for (of course) 1.00 each, and found enough colors that each girl will get their own color. I hope it wouldnt have been better to buy them all the same, hmm. I also got the last 2 packages of foam wands. There are 3 in each pack. When the girls arrive at the party I will let them decorate the wands with stickers, gems, and glitter. I also found a tiara that my DD will wear as the birthday girl.

So for 10.00 plus tax I have the vast majority of what I will need for the party. :) I promise pics of the fun next week.

Hi Lisa, I've been looking around your blog for the last little while and just wanted to say I really like it. You have some great "tot school" ideas! Have you been linking up to the weekly list at 1+1+1=1? I love your name activity with the letters from the Dollar Tree (I know, not this post, but I didn't want to leave a comment on every single post here :) ). Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope your daughter has a wonderful birthday!
