Frugal Party Tips and Recipes

Budget Birthday Party on the Go from MamaEconomics – This mom brought the birthday party with her when her son celebrated his 13th birthday at a Mud boggin’ Competition. I know a 8 year old and 10 year old that love to see a Mud boggin’ Competition.

Christmas Idea House Party from Grandparents Plus  – Lots of ideas you can use in your home to create a festive holiday look for a party.

How to Make Cranberry Punch from the Homestead Lady – Punch is to Christmas as hot dogs and hamburgers are to Memorial Day. Pull out the family bowl, mix up some cranberry punch and invite folks in for an Open House.

Decorate Your Kitchen for Christmas from Penny’s Vintage Home – If you only have time to decorate one room for a party, make it the kitchen. I’m sure I’m not the only host whose guests hang out in the kitchen.
