Have you ever sat and added up the total costs of all of your children’s birthday parties? Whether they are at home, with all the frills or hired locations with hired equipment. A recent survey by Sunlife Direct shows just how much families across Britain are spending on a party. I live in between the London and East Anglia candle and on average it is about £90 per party, you can see the breakdown in the image below. So with Noah’s fifth birthday coming up, it really got me thinking about how he can have a fun birthday party without spending a fortune.
So, if I was given a £300 voucher to spend on a Christmas party outfit from Debenhams, what would I choose? Where would I start? The thought of spending that kind of money on a fantastic party outfit is really exciting, I love putting outfits together whether that be for buying or dreaming! I love sparkly at the moment, fluffy jackets and statement shoes, so off I trot to see what I can find.
