Published by Mckinley Catterton

Halloween party inexpensive remember to limit your guest list. You are not required to invite every person you know. A small group ranging from 15-20 people is large enough for a fun time, but small enough to not hurt your budget too much.


Save money by making your own invitations. You can find free printable Halloween party invitations online. This site has at least 7 different invitations available for your budget friendly Halloween party. Another site that has free printable invitations can be found here.


Save even more money by having a pot luck style Halloween party. Ask your guests to be creative and bring a spooky, festive Halloween dish. You should provide the main meal such as the meat and let your guest brings the sides or desserts. Try to coordinate with your guests if possible so you do not end up with 10 desserts and no sides!


Now is the time to really bargain shop. If you have time ahead of the party start scoping out garage sales. You will be surprised what you can find that can be used as Halloween decorations. Some people try to get rid of.

If you do not find too many Halloween decorations at garage sales it is time to check out the local dollar and discount stores. Stores that sell everything for a dollar often have great decorations for every holiday. Don’t get duped into buying everything just because it is cheap though. Plan where things will go as you shop so you don’t over buy decorations. Even if you say you can always return it you most likely will not waste your time to return inexpensive decorations.


Don’t feel like you need to run out and buy the most expensive board games available. Most parties run smoothly without games. If you really want to get your guests involved in a game pull out a deck of cards and play poker with Halloween candy as your money.


Have a contest for the best homemade contest. This will let your guests know that they are not required to spend a bunch of money on a costume and you will not feel the need to either. This will save everyone money and not alienate people that might not want to have to spend money on a costume to attend a party.

These are just a few ways you can have a budget friendly Halloween party. You don’t always have to break the bank to have a great time.
