Apartment Life serves all types of apartment communities, and we’re often asked how to create fabulous decor that won’t break the bank. We asked our teams to share with us their budget-saving secrets - check out their ideas:

  • Never forget about Target’s dollar section, they always have adorable decor pieces! (pro tip: you can shop online)

  • Trader Joe’s will become your best friend; they have the most affordable selection of flowers.

  • Always keep reusable resources on hand: your core decor will make every theme easy!

  • Head to the Dollar Store for inexpensive items that you can always work with.

  • Stock up on platters, boxes, and chalkboard signs!

  • Don’t underestimate the power of spray paint—you can turn anything into a high-quality piece with just a little color.

  • Buy in bulk as much as you can to limit your event costs.
