‘Food tray from Ikea, masks, balloon garland and mini lights from amazon, everything else 100 per cent Kmart. The sale section was absolute joy, and didn’t cost an arm and a leg,’ she wrote in the post. 

The party attendees, aged between 11 and 12, had their own single air mattress, which were just $7.50 each, dressed with a pink blanket as well as a $1 heart pillow and $4 bolster cushion all from Kmart. 

Each bed was under its own $29 tepee that had been adorned with Kmart’s $4 light up leaf garland, $6 cotton ball string lights and faux roses. 

The $15 Ikea food trays at the end of the beds contained matching slippers, a fluffy eye mask, facial mask and a bottle of water.

‘You can choose what additional items you want, but my suggestion is check out what’s on clearance, and see what works best, she recommended. 

‘Also plan ahead! If you’ve got time to wait for shipping I’m sure you can find cheaper alternatives. The additions are what add up, but was lucky to get a lot of items on clearance at a couple of the Kmarts in the area.’

She said the girls ‘absolutely loved’ their sleepover and she plans to rent out the accessories for parents to throw a stylish party for their own kids. 

Groups members were impressed with the spectacular budget party idea and many joked they were jealous.  

‘That just looks so stunning, I adore the way you have laid it out. Bet they loved it too,’ one mum said.

‘Wow! That’s awesome! Wish I had a slumber party like that when I was a kid,’ a second wrote. 

‘I’m almost 30 and would love this! How cool,’ laughed a third. 

‘This would be great as an adult version,’ a fourth agreed to which another replied: ‘Just imagine wine, grazing board and chocolates’.
