We went with a blue and brown themed Cookie Monster party. I love to go all out, but I hate to spend the money. So, I made pretty much everything myself....over the span of a couple months, during nap time! For food we just did pizza, and lots of sweets! Most all the kids attending were 2 and under, so we didn't really have any organized games, just a few themed activities to keep them busy. It was quite a bit of work, but it turned out great, and the birthday boy had lots of fun! ....also my mom's house has like absolutely no natural lighting, so these pictures definitely don't do the party justice.

2 cookies and cream round cakes and 2 dozen cookie monster cupcakes.
Activities / Games
I made a cookie monster bean bag toss, just used a regular cardboard box wrapped in brown paper and cookie monster's face on the front. Cut the mouth out using box cutters, and made chocolate chip cookie beanbags out of felt. Also, I made a cookie monster out of blue paper and used contact paper for his belly....then gave the kids a basket full of tissue paper, pom poms, other small blue things that they could stick on cookie monster. Covered a coffee table in brown craft paper and left out washable crayons and markers for the kids to color. Made suger cookies for the older kids to decorate. Set up a station where they could decorate take home boxes for their cookies as well. Random cookie monster toys as well, including a floor puzzle and count with me cookie monster.
Goody bags filled with a felt cookie monster hand puppet, a few coloring pages with crayons, blue bubbles, blue play doh, and a cookie monster book from the dollar store.

we bought our invitations from this etsy store. They had a really quick turn around. And the invitations turned out great!
