Save money and start a family tradition  with reusable kids birthday decorations.

in exchange for my honest review. Please see my disclosure.

 

I have a couple of ideas for you to streamline kids birthday party decorating. We decided to start a tradition. Reusable kids birthday decorations are a fun way to keep costs down each year.

We are heading into two birthdays in my house. My two older kids will be having a joint birthday party so we can celebrate with visiting family and local friends. I am keeping things very simple due to the twins requiring a lot of my time. Plus, I like to let the kids lead for their parties. 

Since simple is good, I thought, why not reduce waste and have some of the decorations be reusable. We can limit our expenses and reuse them each year as a fun tradition.

I ordered a basic birthday banner from BuildASign.com. With the bright, fun colors, it works for all the kids! Reusable kids birthday decorations like this banner help cut costs of a kids birthday party.

If you prefer to have a kids birthday party outside of your home, this list of free places to throw a birthday party will give you helpful ideas.

Basic Happy Birthday Banner from BuildASign.com as a reusable kids birthday decoration reviewed at The Stay-at-Home-Mom Survival Guide
I was approached by the blogger outreach team at BuildASign.com. Since I had purchased a sign from them before, I knew the quality of their signs was worth sharing.
 
When my husband returned home from a one year deployment to Iraq, I wanted to put up a couple of welcome home signs. I wanted acknowledge his accomplishment and our joy in his return.
 
BuildASign.com offered a free sign for military families. We only had to pay shipping.
 
Not military? All other orders get free shipping! 
 

We still have the two banners that I ordered back in 2009. They were displayed outside for a few weeks and did not show any wear. I have reused them each time we have ended another deployment.


Both signs are still in good condition even with being stored in a garage and a basement.
 

BuildASign.com has basic signs for any purpose – business and personal. You can use their easy formatting functions to create your own personalized banner, sign, car magnet, and more with your text and images.

Create a reusable kids birthday decorations banner with your child’s picture. Or create a graduation banner if you have a soon-to-be high school graduate in your house. There are so many great options.

I decided to order the basic birthday banner (without personalization). This was so I could use the same banner for all of my kids’ birthday parties each year. No more throwing away paper banners. No need to worry about keeping the stored paper banner safe from the elements.

It is another decoration that I will always have ready to go!

While learning to juggle four kids, I need all the help I can get to keep things simple!

The banner will join our other reusable kids birthday decoration. We have a table runner my mother-in-law made for us. It is easy to get out and add to the festivities.

Here are a couple of sites with patterns if you are interested in sewing your own: Apartment Therapy and TheHomeSewingPlace.com.

Our homemade birthday table runner is done with Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric. So fun for the kids to remember each year!

 

 

Now I have two decorations ready to go for this year. I am excited to use them for years to come!

I look forward to sharing some of our joint ‘Space/Under the Sea’ birthday party ideas with you in upcoming posts like this one.  I made cupcake toppers out of my kids artwork for a fun DIY birthday idea.
