{Real Parties} A Breakfast Birthday Party on a Budget

My friend Casey and her husband are uber creative. She is a talented artist and he is a photographer. They were on a tight budget this year for their son's second birthday celebration, but that didn't mean they couldn't celebrate in style! For Aidan's party, they threw a breakfast party in style....

Casey put together a cereal bar full of childhood treats! On the menu were cereals such as Cap'n Crunch and Trix and sweet add ins like yogurt covered pretzels and Oreos.

Of course cake had to be served! Casey created the cutest mason jar cupcakes with Oreos!

Personalized favor bags, at a nice price I might add, make each guest feel special. These muslin bags by Perideau Designs make the perfect favor bag! I recently used these for Nick's Safari Party.

Since Casey is an artist and so passionate about art, painting had to be involved! All of the little guests were able to paint on a blank canvas which will serve as a keepsake for Aidan.

Here is sweet Aidan LOVING the attention he received while everyone sang Happy Birthday to him! Casey said that when the song was finished, Aidan did the baby sign language for "more". Absolutely precious!

I just love every detail of this heartfelt party. And it goes to show you that you can create a special party on a strict budget! Thank you Casey for sharing this party! For a daily does of creativity and positive posts, visit Casey's blog.
