red dinner party giveaway

Winner Update 1/14: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone who entered! I can’t believe how many fantastic budget tips were posted in the comments… great stuff!! And the randomly selected winner is:

Commenter # 251 – Melissa F., who said: “My budget tip would be to purchase one really nice serving piece that you could use more than once for many different occasions. I have one dish that I used for spinach salad with strawberries and then again for favors at a baby shower and My fave theme would be Hollywood Glam I LOVE Sparkle and color!!”

Congrats, Melissa!

My Favorite Party Planning tip on a budget is: Craete a centerpiece with items you have around the house. EX. Lots of Pillar Candles and tea lights. Or Take your favorite vase and fill it with fruit or fun themed trinkets!

For appetizers count 4-5 per guest before an early meal, 6 or 7 before a late meal and 8-9 if no meal is planned.

The best tip that I can give is ……Chicken! It is less expensive than most meats, it is filling and goes a long way.

Audrey Waldron SAYS:

Entertaining on a budget: Glass jar + glass marbles + candles + twine = the most beautiful outdoor lighting that will enchant and brighten any outdoor party on a budget. Put the candle in the jar first, then add the marbles, tie the twine around the mouth of the jar and hang from trees, awnings, etc. Light the candle just before your guests arrive and you have a beautiful, on a dime decoration. Change the color of the marbles for the theme of the party.
