Party Recap

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.

Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    Levi in his cookie monster shirt :)

  • Desserts

    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.

  • Party Favors

    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.

  • Best Moment

    My son attempting to blow out his candle, and how much he apparently LOVES blue icing.

  • What People Ate

    Pizza. Lots of cookies (chocolate chip, peanut butter, cocolate cake cookies, cowboy cookies). Also, marshmallow pops made to look like chocolate chip cookies, cake pops, bananas dipped in chocolate, and oreo truffles.

  • What People Drank

    An oreo cookie cocktail (which tasted more like a white russian). Skim milk, 2 percent, and whole for the kids, with chocolate and strawberry syrup options. Capri suns, water, and soda.

    Thanks! I made them actually. Just got some plain headbands from the dollar store and wrapped them in blue pipe cleaner (just made sure that all the edges were pushed down, so they weren't sharp). And then I took small styrofoam balls, painted them white, and then painted on black circles. A little hot glue and they're done!

    I actually made it :) He only wore it 3 times, and since I don't really know how to sew....I just cut it all out of felt and glued it on (kinda weird, but it worked!) They sell shirts like it on etsy, but I only spent about 7 bucks doing it my way.

    These big ones I got at IKEA, but the small ones are just the Starbucks frappucino bottles that I washed the labels off of and painted a label on so guests could write their names

    Hey, how did you make the Levi Street sign?? I'm planning my one year old party (first time parent) and I need all the help I can get!! :) You did a wonderful job!!!

  • Kassidy F

    Kassidy F wrote:

    oh man, that's going to be sort of a long explanation. I got wooden dowels from walmart (I've seen them at Home Depot too) and then cut them to the length I wanted them. Then I got the base from Michael's (it's just one of their wooden plaques), and screwed the dowel into it and painted it all green. I then took green card stock and drew the street sign on, you could probably print a template out as well. I cut out the street sign and lined it with thinly cut yellow paper, and then just used white stickers for the "Levi Street". The light is a styrofoam ball that I just glued on. They're a little time consuming, but totally cute and worth it in the end. Good luck with your party! :)

    Great idea for kids to decorate their own cookie, I was thinking of having them do cut outs and bake while there but I like this better!

    How did you make the head bands and hats! I am doing a cookie monster themed party next month and would love to have them!!!

  • Kassidy F

    Kassidy F wrote:

    Head bands I just wrapped blue pipe cleaners around some head bands I got at the dollar store.....just make sure to push the edges in really well because they can be sharp. Then I took little styrofoam balls and painted them white with a black dot, then just hot glued them on. As far as the party hats....I found a template for party hats online and followed that with blue cardstock, then used white paint for the eyes, and a black paint pen for the mouth and glued on a cookie crisp. I found the blue feathery trim at hobby lobby, and that and the pom pom on top are just hot glued as well. I attached elastic that I got from Michael's too, so that it would stay on the kid's heads. Good luck!

    Kassidy - I found the blue sippy cups, but how did you glue on the eyes? Just regular hot glue?

    Kassidy F wrote:

    Hot glue will definitely work for just the party, but if you want them to last a little longer you could try something like E-6000
