- Get the family to make invitations and decorations.
- Make a plan and a budget. Decide what you can afford before you shop. Be flexible so you can make good use of “buy one, get one free” offers, especially on
nibbles, and any reduced offers.
- Make the most of seasonal offers.
- Home-made snacks or nibbles can be cheaper.
- Drinks – no-one will mind if you ask guests to bring a bottle. Just buy a few bottles of soft drinks and alcohol (if appropriate) to start.
