How to Host a Birthday Party on a Budget

Whether you’re having a virtual b-day party, a drive-by party, or if you're doing something small and in-person, we have everything you need without breaking the bank.

From tableware to decorations, we’ll show you how to plan the perfect birthday celebration for your budget. With just a few tips and tricks from Dollar General, learning how to throw a great birthday bash will be a piece of cake.

Sweet Treat Savings

Save on a cake when you bake it at home with a few supplies and some cake mix. Use easy-to-follow recipes from DG Easy Meals. Or, swap out cake and make cupcakes. You’ll discover cake toppers and other baking tools at your local Dollar General to take the aesthetic up a notch.

Decorate on a Dime

Stay organized when buying decorations, invitations and tableware by sticking to a color scheme. Select two to three colors to keep purchasing simple. Decorate the space with affordable party decorations like streamersgarland and banners. Find additional party decor, accessories and party favors (PAW Patrol masks, anyone?) in the party section of your local Dollar General.

Plan Ahead on Supplies

Plan ahead on items you may or may not have on hand like tables, chairs and tableware. Easy clean up options may include disposable trays, bowls, platesutensilsnapkins and cups. Pull together the color scheme with disposable table covers, which can be easy, inexpensive and save time.
