We did an appreciation event for our preschool teachers this week. For only a few $$$ you can show people how much they bless your life.
Backboard re-purposed with new fabric that was only a few dollars at Wal-mart. Plates and vases I had...filled the vases with limes from my backyard and flipped them over to serve as stands. Printed the banner, toppers and sign on a color printer.
Tissue paper poms only cost you 2.99 in tissue paper.
Have people donate treats to the cause. Due to state regulations we needed to use store bought food but if everyone brings in one thing it keeps the costs low.
Easy, easy and not too much of a budget breaker!
