How to Make a Money Tree for a Party
How about the ultimate money party decoration? A money tree!!! This is super easy to make and your guests will be amazed! Or you could give one as a gift.
You could make this as a decoration with fake dollar bills or have one as a present for real money. Make sure you have a little sign so that people know the difference!
Money trees are popular for weddings, engagement parties, graduations and milestone birthdays. Money really does grow on trees!
Here’s some quick and easy instructions for how to make a money tree for a party:
- Grab a small potted plant that has branches like a tree.
- Put it in a gold pot or your favorite decorative pot.
- Make sure the plant leaves are not wet before the party.
- If making a fake tree: grab some fake dollar bills and attach to the tree leaves with paperclips.
- If you are having a real money tree – add some of your own real money there to give people the idea of what to do. Attach notes with paperclips.
- For real money trees: Have a little sign next to the tree encouraging people to add to the tree and a small container of paperclips.

Money Food Ideas
What food should you serve at a money themed party? Just about anything! The key is to think of an easy way to make your food relate to money. If you are serving sweet foods or a dessert platter make sure each platter is decorated with gold chocolate coins.
My favorite way to theme party food is with decorations on the party table. For instance these money themed napkins, money plates and cups are the perfect way to serve your party food. That way you can still serve your favorite party foods and stay on theme.
Make sure you have some money mints scattered over your party table too. These would be great to use as a party favor or a fun treat to eat at the party – individually wrapped butter mints with a fun money wrapper.
