Blippi Birthday Party on a Budget
My kids love Blippi. “B-L-I-P-P-I!” (if you have kids who watch this, you’ll understand this reference.
So for their joint birthday party this year, we decided to have a Blippi theme. We had a nice cake table decorated with toys they already had (like an excavator and monster truck), pizza and salad bar and goodie bags for the kids to take home.
Here’s how it turned out, our Blippi birthday party on a budget:
How I Did It
I kept the invitations simple, just from the 99 Cents Only store and they weren’t a special theme. I ordered the cake from the grocery store and just ordered it with blue frosting, because I planned on putting a birthday boy and birthday girl candle on it (from Dollar Tree) each with a Blippi action figure from Blippi.com.
We ordered 2 cheese pizzas and 3 pepperoni from Little Caesar’s. (Sometimes I make my own pizza though!)
This was my Dollar Tree shopping list:
- white table cloth
- birthday girl candle
- birthday boy candle
- blue poster board
- white poster board
- orange duck tape
- blue tassles
- Happy Birthday sign
- Paper plates for the cake and the pizza as well as napkins
- Plastic utensils
- treat bags
- favor toys
- blue container for the treat bags
After Dollar Tree, I headed over to Party City:
- orange balloons
- blue balloons
Then I stopped by Big Lots:
- summer salad bowl on clearance
- summer ice bucket on clearance
My Walmart Grocery shopping list:
- Salad mix
- cherry tomatoes
- 4 salad dressings
- shredded cheese
- red onion
- shredded carrots
- diet coke, coke, and sprite
- snack packs for the goodie bags
Party Planning Tool
Here’s a printable I designed to help you do your party planning! All the lists are here, you only need to fill them in! This way you will be less likely to forget something and more likely to save money.
I spent around $280 total, which seemed reasonable to feed 20 people and have a complete party. I could have saved more money if I made the cake myself and omitted the goodie bags and kept the salad bar more simple. But there you have it! I was pleased with how everything turned out.
