- Identify Your Budget
The first step to planning a party on a budget is identifying your budget. Before you consider themes, decorations or costumes; look at how much money you have to spend on the budget first.

For example you could use some card and a pumpkin to create a carve-free pumpkin Halloween decoration; just like com did with these black cat pumpkin decorations. You could also use the same techniques to create pumpkin decorations for numerous other animals and monsters, maybe you could make some spooky vampire pumpkins.
- Turn The Party Into A 'Pot Luck Style Party'
If you're unfamiliar with the concept of a 'Pot Luck Style Party', a Pot Luck is where all the guests contribute to the food of the party. This could be a great idea if you're hosting a party with lots of children attending as each family will be able to contribute a dish.In order to minimise the likelihood of multiple people arriving to the party with the same dish, you could create an online document with a list of each family that is invited to the party and what dish they will be bringing. You could also use the document to display any food/drink allergies that people may have so that those who are preparing food can be made aware of this information in advance.
- Play Some Simple Halloween Party Games
Party games don't have to be expensive to be fun. You can have a great time with simple Halloween party games such as apple bobbing and other classic party games such as musical statues and of course, a great game of pass the parcel.If you want to save some time and avoid building your own pass the parcel game, you could purchase some readymade pass the parcels.

- Save Money On Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes

By choosing to wear a costume that you wore a few years ago instead of purchasing a new one, you could save yourself some money that you could spend on other areas of the party.Another money saving tip for costumes is to create your own. Indeed, DIY can be a fantastic way to save some money when organising a party. You could choose something spooky such as a zombie by using some makeup and old clothing, or you could go for a fun costume such as this Jelly Beans costume that you can see on Pop Sugar.
- Host The Party At Your Home
