20 Easy Ideas for a Puppy Party on a Budget


1. Use E-vite Invitations

This is the number one expense I always cut when I am throwing a cost-conscious party.  Printing and mailing invitations is expensive, and sending e-vites is an extremely cost effective alternative.

2. Download Free Printable Invitations

If you’re a die-hard hard copy kind of person, I have a solution for you, too. I have a FREE printable fill-in invitation for you. It’s in black and white with lots of white space–so it’ll save on ink if you print at home and if you take it to the print shop, you can get the cheap prints. It’s formatted for a #10 envelope which are very common and very inexpensive to buy.

3. Park Party Location

Your local park is an excellent place to hold a puppy party. There is lots of room to roam when you aren’t directly entertaining or feeding your guests. Plus, playground equipment is the best free kid entertainer ever!

Kids under 6 or so tend to enjoy free play during get togethers more than highly structured and scheduled parties, so having your puppy party at the park and leaving them some time to run around will make for happy party guests. Most park pavilions can be reserved for free–making the location perfect for a budget event.

When you set up the party at the park, you can set up stations with the different planned activities to keep the party moving along. You can really keep this simple, because, hey–playground equipment. It’ll trump all. A good simple set of stations to plan for are:

  • Feed the puppy
  • Water the puppy
  • Walk the puppy
  • Adopt-a-puppy

Fun, right? Read on for more details on how to set the stations up.
