Buying decorations for a 40th wedding anniversary party. Okay, so here you are planning an anniversary party for your parents and you're at a loss for what to do next. You need 40th anniversary party ideas and you need decorations. But you really don't want to spend a lot of money on them or you really just have no clue what you should do next. Let me help...
Here are a few ideas to help you out. You don't need to spend a fortune on decorations to host and organize a 40th wedding anniversary party. Planning a great menu is half the battle in party planning. If you have great food you won't need to buy as many decorations for the party. First you need to decide if you just want finger foods that people can munch while mingling or if you want to have a full sit down dinner. Have RSVP cards in your invitations in order to find out the number of people you need to cook for.
As you shop for 40th anniversary party supplies you have several routes that you can go. You could shop at a discount store, a party supply store or a warehouse type store. There are also places online where you can purchase a dozen of a certain item at a reduced cost. Watch for sales in the time before the Anniversary party in order to get some really great deals. When shopping for napkins, plates and plastic silverware the best place you can go is a warehouse type store such as Sam's Club. Shopping at these stores can be much cheaper than shopping at a grocery store if you watch your prices. They offer bulk quantities at a discount price. Purchase durable plates and your clean up won't be as bad.
40th Anniversary Party Supplies:
For your 40th anniversary party decorations go to your local dollar or ninety-nine cent store. They often times have banners and other decorations for a dollar. You won't need to over do it so get a few pack of streamers, a few pack of balloons and maybe a banner or two. They also often times have centerpieces that look like a fountain that say "40th Anniversary" on them. You can easily walk out of there with all the decorations that you need for less than twenty dollars.
One of the good 40th wedding anniversary party ideas: Go to a party store to buy all of your helium balloons. You can make nice 40th Anniversary balloon bunches out of one Mylar balloon and the rest just plain solid color latex balloons. Most people waste most of their balloon budget on those latex balloons that say "Happy anniversary" all over them. Most of the time people aren't paying attention to what the smaller balloons say so plain latex balloons work wonderfully.
Hosting a 40th wedding anniversary party can be fun and easy if you just remember not to sweat it. Try to have fun with the planning and the purchasing for this party. If you follow the tips above your party will go over very smoothly and you won't have to waste a bunch of money in the process.
