Melbourne Dj Hire know that there are a lot of costs involved in planning a party. You have the essential elements of a party which is the entertainment, food and drinks and also decorations. Our Melbourne Djs have picked a few tips over all the events we have played at and have written a lot of blog posts about saving money when it comes to organising your event. This blog post is about reusable party decorations and great items that you can reuse party after party.
When you think about the word party, one of the first things you think of are balloons. But balloons are not reusable. You pay all this money for them and they are only used for a few hours, then they deflate and are thrown in the bin. A popular alternative to balloons are those tissue paper pom-poms. They are a good alternative as they are also reusable party decorations, but these pom-poms do take up a lot of room and you would need to fill a few large boxes and have them stored in a shed until your next event. Melbourne Dj Hire would recommend you purchasing the paper fan pinwheels. They are great to decorate a backdrop with and they fold up exactly like a paper fan you can store hundreds of them away and not have them take up a lot of space.
Another amazing reusable party decoration we have seen are fairy lights. They can be a little expensive but you can use them time after time and they always give a magical glittery glow to the event and the photos always look brilliant. Some of our clients who throw a lot of house parties just leave them up all year round. Or they can just be packed away into a box.
There are so many ways you can buy a great quality item and reuse it multiple times to save money and also to save more rubbish going into landfill. For example some people get a neutral coloured table cloths and then set up different coloured candy on the table. Buntings and garlands and streamers are such an effective way to decorate the room and they can be folded up and stored away to be used for another event.
Melbourne Dj Hire have also seen a lot of ads on Facebook marketplace where people have sold some left over party decorations. So there are so many creative ways where you can save money and also throw a great party which reusable party decorations. Get creative and who knows, you just might save some money.
