The Food

You don’t have to go fancy, you can have a BBQ of hot dogs and hamburgers served with chips, pasta salad, garden salad, and fresh fruit. For dessert order the cake from your local supermarket bakery. You can make large amounts of lemonade and ice tea and serve them in 3-gallon beverage dispensers like these from Walmart that are under $20. You can also find 2.5 gallon versions at less than $15! This way guests can serve themselves and stay hydrated.

Other food options include those 6-foot-long heroes you can get made up at your local supermarket or large trays of baked ziti, stuffed shells or mac and cheese you can make ahead of time. Pizza is also a good option and you may be able to work out a deal with a local Pizzeria in your area.

The most important thing to remember is that with a little planning you can throw a great party without breaking your budget. Remember to check this site for all kinds of deals and promo codes to help you save even more.
