A child's happiness is priceless, especially on a birthday. But kids' demands and peer pressure from other parents can turn a little party into a budget buster. Karin Caifa has tips for curbing costs, and teaching children some important lessons, in our Consumer Watch. Party stores are packed with dozens of themes and hundreds of birthday items. For girls, Disney princesses are huge. Fir boys, the superheroes from the latest blockbuster hits like Superman, Iron Man, The Avengers. But birthday blowouts can cost big bucks. Kiplinger's Personal Finance says parents can save money before the party starts. Let children make their own invitations or send them via e-mail. Keep food and cake simple, another thing you can do at home, for less. And don't go overboard on party favors. A fun activity can be a takeaway guests make themselves. "You can spend a lot of money on party favors, but a lot of times the fun is in having the kids put together the party favors," says David Muhlbaum. One inexpensive trend: candy buffets. "Parents are sort of picking and choosing a few key colors of their party design, and then designing an entire candy display based on those colors," says Julia Darrenkamp of Party City. And skip the roller rink or play center for a more affordable venue. "There's a lot of things often in your own community from something as simple as going to the park to ice rinks," says Muhlbaum. Including your child in the party planning can also be a learning opportunity. "This is a prime opportunity for you to lay out what the cost is," says Muhlbaum. "They may realize, maybe I'll just settle for something else. Nut helping them with the dollars and cents, this is a great opportunity." That's a birthday gift that keeps on giving.
