When planning a party, you want to make sure that your guests have fun, that you create an inviting atmosphere, and that guests don’t go home hungry. You know how that feels, right? You get to a party and before you know it, you are hungry.
Then that hungry feeling turns into a hangry feeling.
Party tip: It is always a good idea to avoid hangry guests.
However, food can be expensive!
Because party food can be a strain on your budget, we’ll go over some super easy, and unique money saving food tips for your next party!
Party Food on a Budget
The first tip is to fill your tables with inexpensive, yet delicious and beautiful food. Don’t think main dish, think about the variety of inexpensive sides you can offer.
The second tip is to strategically portion food out for party guests.
Buy Low and Stock Up
Finally, when you are planning a party, consider crafting your menu around the food items that are in season, on sale, or ripening in your garden. Many food items freeze well, so you can also keep an eye out for sales and stock up items for keeping in your freezer. You can use this handy list to read about what freezes well and how to properly freeze it, and for how long!
