Cookie Monster 1st Birthday Party {Guest Feature}

Lauren of Being the Borguez’s sent in this “sweet” cookies & milk party that has “Celebrations At Home-style” written all over it. She brought in the Cookie Monster theme for her one-year-old’s birthday celebration and kept the party small and family oriented.

The things that speak to me are the fact that it’s intimate (it is for a 1-year-old after all), and there are lots of homemade goodies with POPS of designer goods. The color scheme is modern, mixing brown & turquiose, and there are some stand-out details like the chocolate rimmed milk bottles and the “monster” footprints leading up to the table.

Some of the other great features of the party are:

  • Since this was a family party, each guest brought their favorite homemade cookie recipe. Not only does that add to the charm of the event, it helps keep costs down for the hostess.
  • Character parties can get over-done and dare I say, “tacky”, but Lauren kept it classy with just the right amount of Cookie Monster imagery.
  • Favors for both adults and children were available: cookie mix in a jar, and boxes to fill with extra cookies.


Thanks for sharing your darling party with us Lauren!  See vendor credits below:
