Celebrating a birthday in a restaurant is a good tradition that many people observe every year. But what if the financial situation does not allow launching a large banquet? Really give up the holiday? Not at all! The “Sicily Blogs” is sure: you can meet even a modest budget without saving on the quality of service or food.
- Festive salads. A well-structured banquet menu in itself allows you to save money or at least create the impression of a richer table. The price tag for different salads is about the same. However, “Caesar” with fresh green leaves and baked chicken will seem more exotic to guests than the familiar Olivier from childhood (although the price is the opposite: meat salad is usually more expensive). Try not to choose homemade, everyday meals. Do not forget to focus on the price tag and refuse off-season products – for example, fresh vegetables on the menu can be more expensive than meat snacks in winter.
- Your own alcohol. Alcohol, and drinks in general, is one of the most expensive items in the banquet budget if you buy bottles inside a restaurant. Try to find a place that allows you to bring in drinks for free, no cork fee. The same applies to snacks: cuts of vegetables, meat, cheeses are accepted on the tables – they fill the space, look festive, awaken the appetite. But 100 gr. sausages in such cuts will cost the price of a stick! It’s a good savings to bring your own simple snacks.
- A restaurant on the outskirts. The high cost of renting premises does not allow restaurants in the city center to reduce prices for banquets. And cafes and restaurants in remote areas, on the contrary, fight for each client, offering all kinds of promotions, bonuses, discounts.
- Birthday is a holiday designed primarily for meeting with loved ones, friends, for heart-to-heart gatherings in a pleasant company. Certainly none of those invited will condemn you for the lack of bright decorations of the hall, balloons, etc. Most likely, guests will not even realize that you are just saving your budget this way.
