Party on a Budget!

Parties are just one of Caviteños’ way of celebrating something special – whether it be birthdays, weddings, christenings, or family gatherings. Cavite is a known hub for many food spots and party venues with Silang or Tagaytay as ideal places you could go for a sophisticated party.

An array of sumptuous food, entertaining productions, and incredible place are just few of the indicators for some that a party is fully realized.

But considering many factors such as time, location and most especially budget, your dream party may just remain a ‘dream’, leading to many frustrated minds and broken hearts. If you’re stuck on a dilemma like this, here are some genius cost-efficient ideas you can apply on your way to organizing your classy yet pocket-friendly Caviteño party!

Take inventory 

Before you go on searching for budget friendly ways to organize a party, first, sit down and evaluate the time and budget you have for the party. Through this you’ll know how to move, what to avoid, and what to make a deal out of.

For example, if you’ll start preparing during the holiday season, chances are, some services are priced higher compared to lean seasons. If your party doesn’t need to be on a specific date, you can bump it up by going for seasons where businesses are steady, and when you have a lot of free time to use.

Seek help

Knowing how organizing a party can be a taxing job, you can always try getting some help from your family and friends. Aside from monetary, they can also offer their time and effort to help you get started.

In times like this, it’s best to ask for some suggestions and recommendations from people who have the means of obtaining budget friendly party needs. You can ask your relatives, friends or colleagues who have held a party before about the event services or party needs they’ve rented. You can then collect flyers or check their website (if they have one) to know more about their offers.

Once you have acquainted yourself with these businesses, you can then assess which you’ll actually go for depending on your needs and budget.

Keep the guests to a minimum

Caviteños are known to gather as much people around when they host parties. To not overboard your budget, stay low key about your party. Personally invite those who you want, as opposed  to announcing it on social media. Better yet, keep the party a family thing if it’s called for.

The perfect spot

Home to several beach resorts and tourist spots, Cavite also takes pride to having some of the best event spaces in the metro. Some of the most popular locations include Paradiso Terrestre in Molino, Eagle Ridge Golf & Country Club in General Trias, and Orchard Golf and Country Club in Imus.

For people on a budget, subdivision’s clubhouses can also be an alternative to grand venues. All it takes are just some lovely set-ups and fine decorations to fill in the place and you’re good to go!

Food quality, not quantity

A party isn’t a party without the food – particularly for Caviteños who loves to eat! For your budgeting means, it’s always a great idea to prepare the food by yourself, and opt for finger food or clean eating recipes. This also gives you control of the budget and the taste of your food.

But if you’re not big on the kitchen, catering is a great and ideal option. There are now several catering services all over Cavite that offer affordable food packages. Stellaire Catering Services in Dasmariñas has a wide range of afforable catering packages that doesn’t only feature food, but also dining set ups and party equipment of your choice.

Keep the party alive

Do not let a good food and a good place be put into waste without injecting some entertainment. If you’re a people person, you can host and coordinate games by yourself. You can also add some strobe lights, fog machines and sound systmes to set the mood further.

Several businesses today also offer cheap dessert buffets, food carts, face painting services and photobooths for rent for a more spiced up and delightful event to remember.

So there you have it! We know how preparing for a party is extra hard especially when you’re a little tight on the budget. Just be street smart and resourceful, and you’ll go a long way. In the end what matters most is how you can make your party memorable together with your loved ones – and that ladies and gentlemen won’t cost you anything.
