Not every kid's party has to be full of an over-the-top dessert table, inventive party games, and pricey decor bought from many an Etsy vendor. We love a simple at-home birthday party that still feels really special, and this sweet, stylish birthday brunch, thrown by illustrator and graphic designer Kelli Murray for her 2-year-old daughter, Rylee Jean, is a perfect example.
"Instead of throwing a big party, I decided to keep it simple this year and let our family spoil her for the day," Kelli says. "If there are two things Rylee loves, it's pancakes and her cousins, and she is always in her best spirit in the morning hours! With no theme in mind other than a pretty breakfast table, I chose a soft color palette of mint, gray, and mustard." Check out all the details, including some cool DIY decor, homemade breakfast foods and a birthday cake, fun photo props, and, of course, gifts for the supercute birthday girl!
