Hosting a party almost always sounds brilliantly fun. Until you think about hosting a party, go catatonic from the mere thought of pulling together a menu, and decide to forego tucking yourself into a roomful of people you j’adore, simply because ZOMG menu-shopping-cleaning-organizing-Pinteresting-cleaning-hosting-everythinging.

I’ve done this. Totally have called off fun future party plan ideas, simply because the technicalities totally wear me out.

But when you have this brilliant little idea for a DIY Cereal Breakfast Party Bar tucked into your back pocket, you’re just $20 and 10 minutes away from throwing the cutest little shindig you’ve ever thrown. No sweat. No worry. No hitting a millionbillion stores for supplies. Just grab some basics from the grocery store, call your people and party your hearts out.

Perfect for girlfriend brunches, perfect for breakfast baby showers, ideal for early morning wedding shindigs, amazing for 6 grade sleepovers, awesome for couple’s mimosa mornings. All of the things you’ve ever want to host are made instantly-ready-to-go with this supercute idea.

Ready to discover just how easy it is? Here’s how to throw your own DIY Cereal Breakfast Party Bar:


THING TO DO #1: Buy boxes of your favorite cereal.

My kids have been asking to have friends over for a sleepover, so we went kid friendly. But you can go in any direction here. Buy up some boxes of Multigrain Cheerios™ if your crew is health-conscious. Get Wheaties™ for the guys. Bring home a camping thing with Golden Grahams™ and a toss-in of marshmallows and mini chocolate chips. Dozens of ways to go here!


THING TO DO #2: Now transfer your cereal to cute, clear containers.

Plastic or glass works here. Giant Mason jars would be cute, or just pour it all in plastic buckets if you’re serving it to kids. Whatever works!

You’ll also want to lay out milk, bowls and spoons.


THING TO DO #3: (Optional) If you’re feeling uber crafty, pop a few tags on your table, so guests can see all of their options. Blackboard stickers are readily available online and at craft stores, and are generally reuseable. A fun way to get that inviting, DIY look!

It’s party time! Call your peeps and let them cereal their hearts out. The simple party life is soo, soo good!
