It turns out that graduation parties exist not only in school and university, but also in kindergartens. Moreover, the preparation for them, often, is the same serious, and the amounts are spent rather big. We experienced this event two years ago, and now I understand that I could save on many things. I hope, those who are only to come will benefit from my experience.
In my opinion, at the Christmas party, some very active mother asked me if we were preparing the dress for the prom … I was puzzled, because, honestly, I didn’t even think about it. A month before the event, a magnificent fuchsia dress was purchased. Attire cost – 50 cu Was it possible to save? Of course!
The thing is that these magnificent dresses are good only at the very moment of the celebration, and then they go to gather dust in the closet. In my opinion, it is worth buying such a dress in several cases:
– if the family has a younger child of the same sex, to whom the outfit will be useful in the future;
– if in the near future (maximum year) events are planned at which the outfit would be appropriate (wedding of relatives, performances at concerts, etc.)
If you could not come up with an event where the child can show off, feel free to take your graduation attire … for rent! So did my neighbor, which does not regret. Rental cost $ 20.E. And, the dress looked just amazing!
I do not know who wants to have fun more on this day: children or their parents. It seemed to me that the children just wanted to rest after the solemn part and the matinee itself … The parents did not support! Have fun – so have fun!
Many options were offered: go to a cafe, visit an entertainment center, invite animators. We stopped at the last version – and they were right! After the graduation party itself, which, by the way, lasted 1.5 hours, tired children even sluggishly reacted to the animators. Their visit cost 150 USD for the whole group ($ 8 per person). Cafes and entertainment center would be much more expensive.
But the sweet table pleased me, because there was nothing superfluous there. No cakes and cream cakes, but a bunch of nice canapes, cookies, candy and juice. Only 5 in. E. per person
Here is the point on which you should not save. Do not expect that the mother of Petit Ivanov, who has a good video camera, at the request will also take pictures of your child! She came to shoot her child, so all these oh, and my shoot is just not appropriate. Shooting a video for me is also not an option – I don’t have time to catch all the moments.
A professional cameraman costs about $ 200 in our city, this includes shooting, editing and discs. My daughter watches the video from the prom for a long time and with pleasure, and I wonder how small she was!
In addition to the diplomas that were given to the children, the parent committee decided to give the children some memorable gifts. The idea, of course, is good, until it was a matter of choice for these very gifts. After all, all parents have their own preferences.
Someone wanted to equip a child for school, someone was still interested in toys, in the end we agreed that the best gift for a future first grader was a book! We bought them in bulk in the online store, so we got a substantial discount.
In addition to these expenses, there are also gifts to teachers, the kindergarten, flowers and candy to the music director, nurse, etc. Therefore, the amount poured substantial.
