Before you start to panic about the cost of birthday outfits for kids, there are many ways you can have a fun, celebratory party without going over budget. 

Summer birthdays make this even more possible than winter birthdays because there are more outdoor options. For example, if you don’t want to spend money on an indoor venue, you can hold the party in your backyard or at a park.

You can also keep decorating easy by using toys and photos you already own. For instance, if you are throwing a mermaid-themed birthday party, decorate with your child’s mermaid toys and posters.

When it comes to birthday outfits for kids, the best way to save money is to purchase gently used resale clothing items like the ones we offer on Berri Kids Boutique. As long as you have an idea of the birthday party theme, you can pull an outfit together that will tickle your child and look great in photos.
