How can I set a budget for a kids' birthday party?!

Question: How can I set a budget for a kids' birthday party!?
Please help!.!.!. I'm trying to figure out how much I should spend for my daughter's birthday party!.!.!.

There will be about 20 kids in total (plus any parents who decide to stay)!.

How much should I spend on:
-- Food
-- the cake
-- decorations
-- party favors
-- anything else you can think ofWww@FoodAQ@Com

Food - Depends if you are making it or not!. You could try and make it at a time like 2pm - 4!.30pm so that you are not feeding the kids a meal!. That way you just have to do some small nibbly foods (chips, lollies, popcorn, etc) which should be no more than $60!.

Cake - You could make this yourself for a little amount! Or you should be able to buy one from a cake shop from around $30!.

Decorations - I am not sure how old your daughter is, but she might enjoy making some things!? Streamers, balloons, etc all look great!.

Party Favors - Does your town have a $2 Shop kind of thing!? You could go down there and buy some little presents to be used!. And maybe put all leftover lollies or something into each guests lootbag!.

Hope I have helped! =DWww@FoodAQ@Com
