We await for this time of the year when the year end is closer and so is our Santa Claus. Organizing and arranging a Christmas party with friends and family is something we always look forward to.
But, what are the ways in which we can organize the Christmas party and at the same time keep it wrapped within the budget? Well, here are some hacks to it.
1. Cookie case

In this way you shall have a variety of cookie packets plus it wouldn’t dig a hole in your pocket either. You can even ask them to bring pan cakes instead of cookies, whatever you choose to serve.
2. House party

The Christmas decorations are bound to absorb in a major chunk of your budget so instead of buying readymade Christmas tree and other decorative things, you can be a bit creative and create your own Christmas tree. Infact, you can even request your guests to contribute in Christmas tree decoration by adding in some stars or bells to the tree.
5. Variety of Wines
Buying different kind of wines shall be heavily costly to you but since your guests shall be anyway bringing something, you can ask them to bring their favourite bottle of wine. You shall be having amazing varieties at the end without actually burning your budget and creating a misbalance.
As we need to be cash conscious, try to limit your menu to light finger foods as that will help in to economize on your budget while the money saved can always be spend on buying thank you gifts for your guests.
We accept that Christmas is among one of the biggest festivals of the year but when you have shoe string budget, you can still manage ample of happiness even when you are running out of money if you plan wisely.
