At this time of year, there are so many events going on that it can get kind of expensive for anyone living on a budget.
Invitations to birthday celebrations, graduations, showers, weddings, and all kinds of other events seem to come in the mailbox daily.
Just this past weekend, there were two birthday events to attend.
Best part of any party for me is watching the antics of the littlest party-goers. They are always so adorable.
Now just look how this doll baby shows the world how enjoyable it is to eat cake!
We could all learn a bit from her, don't you think?
Here's the little darling enraptured with a balloon!
Since the birthday girl at this party swims quite a bit during the summer, I found a bright, colorful and thick Martha Stewart towel on sale at Macy's and added some matching flip flops. It all came in just under $25.
The present shown at the top of this post and below was for a five-year-old. I purchased the Disney themed wrapping paper at Target right after Christmas last year and it was very inexpensive. Same with the pretty pink ribbon.
From a children's consignment boutique came two absolutely adorable dresses for the little birthday girl. They cost $7 and $5 and looked almost new.
Then, at Dollar Tree, I picked up a Princess coloring book, crayons, a silver colored princess crown with bright pink deocorations, and a squishy pink rubber ball that looked like a porcupine!
Cost of the entire gift was $16 which I didn't consider too extravagant for the little sweetheart who received it.
DO YOU HAVE A SET PRICE IN MIND IN ADVANCE FOR GIFTS YOU HAVE TO BUY?
