6 Reasons You’ll Love Our Birthday Day Party Budget Worksheet
Our template is tailored specifically for birthday party planning. We know you want this event to be as unique as it is unforgettable, so your budget worksheet should be too. With birthday-specific categories and line items, our budget planner is customized exactly for your event!
2. Easy to Organize
Party planning can sometimes be a team effort, and we have taken that into consideration when creating the expense tracker. Sharing the worksheet is effortless with our easy-to-understand design, and columns that are assignable to different people. This makes it easier to keep track of which items, such as favors and presents, are ready to go.
3. Pie Charts
One of the more fun (as fun as expense planning can be) features of our expense sheet are the automatic pie charts. As you begin to fill in the budget items, pie charts located at the top of the worksheet will fill in. This way you are able to have a visual representation of how much you are spending per category. If you have a specific category you want to allocate a certain amount of money, the pie charts will help you determine how much more or less you need!
As we mentioned earlier, birthday party planning is often a team effort. Our budget planning worksheet is easily shared through Google Sheets. This allows you to work with others and get your event planned quickly and effortlessly. Being able to have multiple eyes on the same worksheet makes it harder to make costly mistakes.
5. Individual Payment Tab
Being able to track individual expenses and payments is essential in a budget planner. We have included a Payment Tab, at the bottom of the worksheet, that allows you to keep tabs on this important information. Just enter the Total Cost, assign whoever will be paying for that item, and you're good to go! Once you have made the payments, make note of it and the worksheet will compute the amount you have left.
6. Easy to View
Our budget planner is formatted to be as user-friendly as possible. All birthday party expenses are separated by category, so you won't have to deal with a long list of details. We included separate columns for estimated expenses and actual expenses. You can plan a rough calculation of how much you will spend ahead of time and adjust spending once you know actual prices.
7. Easier Customization with Multiple People
With this sheet, it is easier for multiple people to work on this without anyone stepping on any toes. So say, if multiple people agreed to work on only certain parts and keep to those parts, they could all work on their parts and never at their time with little worry of their work being messed with in any way.
