If you’re throwing a party on a budget, you need to see if there is a Dollar Tree in your area! This is simply the best place to go to buy affordable party supplies, including paper cups, plates, napkins, and decorations. They have a variety of items for children’s birthday parties, as well as supplies for weddings and baby showers.
One thing I have noticed is that every Dollar Tree has a slightly different selection. So, if you’re trying to have a themed party, ask friends in other towns to look for items in their area.
For example, my son had a pirate party last year and the decorations were purchased from three different Dollar Tree locations. One store had the plates and cups, one had the banners and centerpieces, and the last store had the pirate party favors.
I’ve been using Dollar Tree party supplies for about five years and have never had any major issues with quality. The kids and their parents have always commented on how cute the decorations are and I’ve been able to use the money I saved to help with the cost of food for everyone.
Another option for your party supply needs is to buy online. For example, the princess party pack in the picture accompanying this post is just $14 and has everything you need for a party for eight guests.
Orders ship for free if you have them sent to the nearest store location and pick them up yourself. Otherwise, shipping and handling fees vary according to your location and the weight of your order.
