·        Come up with a theme: Before you start pricing out rental chairs, tables and tikki torches come up with a theme to carry out. If you have enough space plan for your backyard, garage or at your local park to save money on a venue. Once you have decided on a location the theme may become easier to decide. From seasonal ideas such as tropical, pool party, to choosing colors, flowers, or even choosing your favorite summertime movie can be great themes to carry out inexpensively.

·        Use everyday items for decoration:  Once you have chosen a theme think of everyday items you can use for decor. Are you a beach-goer who has surfboards, life preservers and other water sport items laying around the house, use them for decor around your party! For a garden summer party use the natural backdrop as your decoration and embellish by hanging colorful paper lanterns and even string lights from trees and bushes. There are many string lights available today that run on small batteries, so no worries for finding and electrical source.

  1. That would really cut the costs for the party, given there are accessible resources and items that can be used for the occasion. We should enjoy this season since this is the best time to have fun. And also, during this time of the year, it's best to do the parties outdoors.
