    • 4th of July Party for Pennies

    • Forth of July is right around the corner and it's a great time to celebrate our freedom. A celebration for this holiday does not need to cost a lot. 

Invitations- Call your friends, use Evite to send electronic invitations, or purchase some inexpensive flags and tie a homemade invitation to the flag. Then place the flag in the recipients yard. Keep in mind that some people may have vacation plans. So don't take it personally if there are not as many people able to attend as you expected.  

Food- Ask everyone to bring a dish or beverage. Don't forget about drinks, condiments, dessert, and plates. 

Activities- Watch the fireworks, have relay races with balloons between the legs, eggs on a spoon, and wheel barrel races. Consider card games or a game that you have sitting in the garage such as boccie ball, bad mitten, basketball, etc.

Decorations- Of course you'll want to decorate in red, white, and blue. Purchase red, white, and blue balloons, streamers, plates, napkins, and straws.

I hope you have fun!

Cost- (Ten People) 
Invitations- $0-$1.50 per invite
Activities- $0 or include a prize
Food- $30
Decorations- $20

Total- $50

*This party idea is part of a series called Party for Pennies which started since talk of a recession. BestPartyEver.com's goal is to bring people together through celebration.
