Don’t be afraid to get creative! My number one party/entertaining tip is to check what you have on hand before buying anything new. This will help keep party costs lower. When it comes to buying party supplies, I like to buy neutral items or try to make sure I will be able to use it for another event.
Do you have house plants? Real or faux..they are a great addition to any party. Plants instantly add color and are very easy to style. Aren’t my orchids gorgeous?! They really helped pull this set up together. My faux large banana leaf plant also created the perfect backdrop. I know house plants aren’t usually “party” colors, but give it a chance..you’d be surprised 😉
Have a table that would be perfect for desserts? Clear it off and rearrange the furniture for the time being.
Other items I love to use: candles, lanterns, serving boards/trays, vases.
My favorite inexpensive party supplies that really add a “wow” factor are balloons and tassel garlands. You can get them for under $20! Shop here. The tassel garland can also be reused.. see the trend here?!
I hope this inspires you to shop your house for your next event! xo
