Awhile ago when I was planning my wine and cheese party, I set a budget and I think I did a pretty good job of sticking to it. These were the expenses for the party:
-Custom Invitations from TinyPrints.com - $30.35
-Set of 12 Plates from Crate and Barrel - $29.03
-4 Bottles of Wine - $61.32
-Cheese Selections, Salami, and Appetizers - $77.47
So for everything, I spent $198.17, which is just under the $200 that I wanted to spend. Although, this party was expensive, it was worth it! Now back to being budget conscious for the rest of the month....
