A DIY Birthday Party: A Party for You and By You

Some people prefer not to celebrate their birthday. When it comes, they’d rather have a quiet dinner with the family or stay indoors for the rest of the day.

Others, however, enjoy their special day. They make an event out of it. There are even those who plan a birthday bash on their own.

If you’re one of them, there’s no need to feel ridiculous or think the entire thing is unnecessary. Some might think it’s such a vanity, but who cares? Remember: it’s your birthday; you have every license to celebrate the way you wish. But if you don’t have the funds to pay for a party planner, worry not.

plan-your-own-DIY-birthday-party is way better. Not only do you save money (which is a lifesaver, especially if you’re on a budget), you also get to express yourself and pull the party off with a little help from your friends.

Your Birthday, Your Style

From the cutely designed cupcake wrappers to the suggested menu, you get to personalize everything – minus the expense of party planners.

Whatever You Say Goes.

Party planners can sometimes inject their own ideas in yours; there’s nothing wrong with that, but a customized party shows everyone your style, as well as your effort. You get to decide everything: the right shade for the streamers, how you want to pin the decorations, and even the music.

This party is for you and made by you.

Bonding Moment with Friends

You can plan your party on your own, but the execution of details will require the extra hands. That’s where your family and friends come in.

Loved ones can pitch in when it comes to the decorating, baking, and other party planning necessities. Since you work with people close to you, it is easier to tell them what to do.

Payment is optional, but loved ones are more accepting of simple love gifts as payment for their service. Also, you spend more time with them as you cut, paste, and decide on party favors.

Don’t be scared to plan your own birthday. It’s your special day so DIY — all the way!
