How to Throw an Affordable Kids Birthday Party

Posted on Nov 30, 2015

As a parent, you want to give your child all of the happy memories you can, and of course that includes a fun birthday party! Of course, as any parent knows, it can be a challenge to give your child everything you want for him or her while also sticking to the family budget. Fortunately, throwing your child a memorable birthday party doesn't have to break the bank. Read on for some tips to help you throw an affordable birthday party in Orlando.

Keep it simple

It's easy to get wrapped up in the latest Pinterest trend and think that your child's party just has to have yards of hand-crafted bunting or artisanal balloon bouquets, or to get sucked into the social media "keeping up with the Joneses" that can make users feel inadequate in comparison to their peers. But keep in mind that kids have a whole different criteria for whether or not a party is a success, and it's really quite simple: Make it fun! There's really no need to spend hours crafting decorations or cooking fancy food; kids just want to play some games, eat some tasty (but simple) snacks, and have fun with their friends. At Monkey Joe's we deliver with our awesome indoor inflatables, arcade games, prizes, and a festive, decorated party room. We even provide a party host and free setup/cleanup in all of our party packages!

Pick a package

Speaking of party packages, opting to have your child's party at a party center like Monkey Joe's Pointe Orlando is a savvy choice. Parents often think they'll save money by having a party at home, but by the time they pay for all of the decorations, food, drinks, tableware, games, entertainment, etc, they realize it adds up to more than simply booking a party at a kid-friendly venue. Here at Monkey Joe's, we have a variety of party packages so you can pick the one that fits your budget and customize it with add-ons like balloons or goodie bags. Invitations, drinks, pizza, tableware, set up, clean up, and a party host are all included!
