Cinco de Mayo Birthday Party on a Budget


Desmond's-3rd---1Hello My Sweet is sharing their son’s 3rd birthday on a budget! The Cinco de Mayo themed birthday party was unique in that everything except for the food was purchased at a dollar or discount store. With 20 guests and a total decorating cost of $41.95 with tax, I would say that’s one budget-friendly fiesta!

Desmond's-3rd-2Some details to note were the fringe tissue paper garland, cute aluminum trays, sombreros, paper flags, ribbon cake stand skirt, and a colorful number pinata. Most, if not all, of the items for the party were purchased from Dollar Tree.
