Controlling the cost of your next party

Controlling the cost of your next party

Details matter when planning a party. Unfortunately all those details add up.

You can stay within your budget without looking like you skimped when you order in bulk. Everything from table settings to decorations will help set your party apart. Once you set a theme for your event, check out wholesale party supplies and consider the following tips to make sure you are getting the most for your dollar.

Order party staples in bulk

Even if you're not throwing a large party, ordering some items wholesale is a good idea. You can order basic items in bulk such as plastic cups, plates, and solid color decorating items and then store the extra for your next get-together. Having a go-to supply of party goods comes in handy when an impromptu gathering pops up.

Color-coordinate your parties

A good way to save more money on party supplies is to purchase solid-color supplies and then mix and match the colors depending upon the holiday. For example, you can use red, white and green for a Christmas gathering and then red and white for a Valentine's Day party and the green supplies for St. Patrick's Day. Red party supplies also work well for patriotic holidays. Having some items on hand and then mixing in a few holiday specific items is a good way to cut costs.

Create a big impact with specialty items

If you're throwing a milestone birthday party or a graduation party, sometimes you'll only use the items you buy for that particular party. But since banners printed with the year or napkins in a particular theme help set the tone of the event, they're worth purchasing.

The wide variety of themed party supplies is staggering. Take the time to browse the wide selection of wholesale goods to find the perfect theme for your event, and then order the products that will create the biggest impact. If you need to save money, order solid-color plates and napkins, but then add themed decorations.

Call on an expert

Party planning is stressful, so if you need help with all the details of a large event do not hesitate to call a professional party planner. A planner can help you stick to a budget by using wholesale supplies and may even be able to get you a better deal on products.
