Organizing a Cheap Yard Party

If you’re reading this, you probably want to host a party but don’t want to spend a lot. Well, don’t worry because you are not alone.

Fortunately, you can organize a yard party at any time of year without spending too much. All you’ve got to do is be creative and plan ahead.

Here are several tips you can follow for budget-friendly Denver party decors, furnishings, and themes:

Barbecue and Grilling

The party is in your yard. This sets already the tone for a casual ambiance. You can keep the menu simple – chicken, hot dogs, burgers. You can choose something that can be easily cooked or grilled for your guests. You can choose make-ahead dishes as well to plan the menu.

Cheap Party Decors

A theme will dictate your décor. This can include fiestas, luaus, graduation parties, and much more. You can purchase decors during offseason if you plan ahead. It might be a lot more affordable to buy them several months in advance. In addition to that, to get an idea of how much things cost, you can look online for sales and do some comparison shopping.

Borrowing decors from a family member or a friend is another thing you can do. Simply keep in mind who let you borrowed what. Also, you’ve got to ensure you return them once the event is done. Lastly, make sure you return them in great condition. If anything gets damaged, you have to replace it.

To add a couple of styles to your event, you do not have to be the best designer or be really fancy with the decors. You should think about several aspects. This includes:

  • Outdoor holiday décor you have already
  • Freshly cut flowers from your garden
  • Paper streamers
  • Assorted glass bottles and mason jars filled with tea lights and candles
  • Paper lanterns
  • Balloons

Shop Less

If you shop for party decors at online retailers and discount shops, you can keep prices down. Consider purchasing outdoor plastic glasses, dishes, and dishware that can be washed and utilized again instead of paper. Aside from your local discount party shop, you should try looking at:

  • Yard and estate sales
  • Bazaars or flea markets
  • Thrift stores
  • Dollar stores
  • Department stores. This is particularly true during the end of the season since patio accessories and furnishings are sometimes discounted heavily.
  • Wal-Mart
  • Target
  • Online retailers

Choose a Theme

Simply being outdoors lifts the mood of your guests. This is another reason to celebrate. This is particularly true if you are with individuals you enjoy. Though you do not always require a theme, having one can be an ice breaker. It is basically a fun thing to do. Special events and holidays are natural themes that more or less dictate activities and décor. Here are a couple of things you should try:

  • Beer pong
  • Cocktail party
  • Camping out
  • Garden party
  • Costume party
  • Game night
  • Shark party
  • Backyard glamping
  • Outdoor movie party
  • Farm-to-table
  • Luau

These are just some of the common themes you can try. Make sure you know your guests first before you can decide on a theme.
