I am in the middle of planning my son's fourth birthday party, it will be a Power Rangers Samurai party. Yep, Power Rangers. There is a trick I have learned over the years which has helped save a ton especially if you are throwing 'themed' parties. That trick is, the dollar store. Just about any $1 store will do.
For this party, I am going to buy 'real' Power Rangers cupcake toppers and a few 'nice' balloons and some Power Rangers treats. But, the bulk of the items will be coordinating solid colors from the dollar store.
You can use some items that have the theme but I'm not going to spend $30 on Power Rangers plates that will be covered in cake and thrown in the trash. Instead, I'll spend $1 per package and pick up red plates that match with the rest of the theme.
Think this only works for kids parties? Nope! Check out the place settings below:
These two place settings are super cute and extremely frugal! What are your favorite items to pick up at the dollar store?
