Throw a No-Spend Holiday Party

Did you know it's easy to throw a great holiday bash without spending a lot of cash? Here's how.

Something as simple as a homemade cider and holiday cookie party can help you save big. Just bake an extra batch of cookies and leave them unfrosted. Then, set up a cookie decorating station with tubes of icing, and bowls of sprinkles.

This low cost gathering is just one creative way to save. If you want to take your dessert decorating a step further, host a high-concept Gingerbread House Party. Have your guests bring things like candy canes and chocolate morsels and have fun getting crafty on a budget.

Remember: throwing a creative holiday dessert party can lead to some very sweet savings.
