What does a birthday cost? All costs at a glance

What does a birthday cost? In this latest blog, we give you insight into what a birthday party at home actually costs and what you can get in terms of snacks and people for this.

How many people do you invite?

The first important question for you is how many people you want to invite to your birthday.

If you know in advance that you have a small budget, then only invite the people you most want to invite to your birthday. 

Our experience is that this can easily be 15 to 20 people. By not inviting too many people, you can ensure that your guests feel welcome and that they lack nothing, despite your lower budget. This way you also enjoy your birthday party a lot more.

Everyone loves celebrating birthing, and telling others how old am I today, but you should have a budget to organize a birthday that makes you feel happy and others. 

If you have a larger budget, you can invite between 20 to 40 people to your birthday, depending on the size of your house (and garden).

Especially for you, Gallant and More have made an overview of the expected costs according to the number of people at your birthday party. 

For purchasing, we have taken 15 to 20 guests as an example, on the basis of this you can calculate the costs yourself if you are with a larger group. Handy huh?

The extras

If you have a larger budget, you can also choose to have dinner together on your birthday. With a group of 15 to 20 people, it is recommended to prepare a tasty soup yourself in the summer with sandwiches and a cold dish and in the winter a few delicious stews with smoked sausage, for example. The cost of these meals for a group of 15 to 20 people is around 60 euros.

For a larger group, you can choose to have the meal provided by a caterer. This means that you spend less time on the preparations for your birthday party. You can assume that the meal will cost between 15 and 25 euros per person. For the same amount, you can also choose to hire a food truck.
