HOW TO PULL OFF A SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE BIRTHDAY PARTY!

image
A few days ago, I got a call from a friend of mine who needed help planning an inexpensive birthday party for her brother and it got me thinking that it was time to post this simple surprise birthday party we did for a very close family friend of ours a few weeks ago. 

Do you guys remember how simple our childhood birthdays were? A simple cake without frosting in most occasions, popcorns, Marie Biscuits, Wow Rings (Remember those tu-yellow salty rings?) and some juice? And yet, it would give us bragging rights for days in your neighborhood and school. It was the thought that counted.
 
Back to the main story, we wanted to do something simple and inexpensive but one that would make our dear family friend really happy. 
 
VENUE
The one thing that totally sky rockets a party budget – is the venue – which is why we settled on doing it at home (one way of stretching that shilling). 
 
PARTY DECORATIONS
Balloons are the real MVPs when you are on a budget because they create that celebratory mood so well. With a few shillings, we bought some balloons and I had also done some personalized print outs for the frames and for the plates as well. 
 
 
FOOD AND DRINKS
As for the food, we opted to have a Bbq Themed Lunch so we ordered some Mbuzi Wet Fry and Dry Fried Pork from Edgewood Country Resort (check them out HERE) – their nyama is uber delicious! As for the accompaniments, we made the Ugali and Roast Potatoes at home (still stretching that shilling). We had also bought some Sodas and watermelon. 
 
 
BIRTHDAY CAKE
When you are a baker, people always turn to give you a wink when there is a birthday party coming up and it was no different this time. I did a 1.5 kg White Forest Cake layered with whipped cream and lots of strawberries. And used a lovely Birthday Cake Topper and some birthday candles. 
 
 
REMARKS
We had so much fun on this day – amazing food, delicious cake, endless laughter – doesn’t get better than that. And most importantly, it is a day he will not be forgetting any time soon. 
 
I hope I have managed to convince you that it is totally possible to have an inexpensive party that won’t have you breaking the bank or digging tunnels into bank vaults.
 
Remember, it is the thought that counts. 
 
Thank you for reading.
 
Love,
 
Sal

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?

    Appreciate it!
