Throwing an awesome kid’s birthday party can be as lavish or as low-cost as you want. While a gorgeous 3D cake is great for the ‘gram, why not get a no-frills chocolate cake (always a yummy choice!) if you’re on a budget?
And instead of buying bunting flags to dress up the party venue, make your own decor. Of course, get your child to do the crafts with you and enjoy bonding moments together.
Your kid’s artworks would also “bring party guests into her world”, says Ripple Sim, who founded event styling company Stitch X Marker and co-owns photography studio Hoppity Pictures.
In this episode of Young Parents‘ #momhacks video series, she and her daughter, Miley, share how you can DIY paper fan garlands.
You can also make mini versions of these paper fans, attach them to toothpicks and use as toppers to decorate your humble chocolate cake!
