How to host a Bonfire Night Party on a budget

Bonfire night can be such a fun event for a family but it can be a pricey one especially if you decide to do it yourself and host a party,  Here are some frugal ideas to keep the costs down but still really make a it a fun event.

On the invite ask everyone to bring along some fireworks (it’s not at all cheeky, it’s realistic – they are expensive)

Baked potatoes or a big chilli are the way to go for inexpensive and easy food that you can prep in advance

If it’s a kid focussed event you absolutely do not have to provided alcohol and jugs of squash are far cheaper than cans of pop or cartons

When it comes to entertaining the kids it doesn’t have to all be about fireworks you could set up some crafting pop over to Jennifer’s litte world for some brilliant suggestions and how about this paper cup popper craft over at Red Ted Art – you can also see the YouTube tutorial for this fabulous and simple craft by clicking through here

    I’m looking forward to going down to our local Scout hut for their fireworks – we just have contribute one big firework per family, and fork out for hot dogs and so on.
