party on a budget

{Aiden turns 2 March 22}

I want him to have a party and feel special. Yet it has to cost somewhere around $30. 
I am not joking.
So here are my ideas:
1. Last year I filled all kinds of glass vases, different sized containers with candy….this year, 
colored cereal! Cute and in the budget!

2. Melanie, my dear friend has been BEYOND generous. We did a trade. It wasn’t even, I owe her mucho…but she is wonderful and designed these gorgeous invitations (which we emailed out to save $); she also is creating, making & giving to me cupcake toppers and possibly some gorgeous bunting to help with the “zoo themed” decorations. (how sweet is she, right?! check out her shop!
Photobucket
3. activities: sandbox, swing set, water table- all free 🙂 and I have an extra canvas that I am hoping to let all the kids paint for Aiden to hang up in his room or the hallway.
4. cupcakes in mason jars, have you heard of this? SO cute and I already own the jars!
5. favors….animal crackers 🙂

*I have a few more ideas up my sleeve 🙂
