Nom, nom, nom…this party is a treat!  A Milk and Cookies First Birthday Party with a Cookie Monster Twist is full of sweet delights!  Mom Lauren styled this party for her son- a family affair with sweet touches…Lauren says the best ingredient to this party was lots of love from a family that adores him!  You can feel the love and see all of the adorable details…keep scrolling!

I love the little smash cake above and the adorable Cookie Monster cupcakes!  I can only imagine how delighted Logan must have been to find out his favorite character tastes so good, too!

There was a bigger cake for everyone to enjoy a bit of the blue monster…

Bottles of milk waited for each family member~

This party was a family-only party and, to get everyone in on the fun, each family member brought their favorite cookies to share with Birthday Boy Logan!  Mom Lauren planned ahead to find out what each favorite cookie would be and had table signs labeling the cookie name and the family member’s name!  What a cute detail!

Lauren had big blue feet leading from one dessert table to another…at the second table you could find a mix of blue treats…even blue Monster Milk!

Cookie Monster poms hung from the ceiling and added a pop of fun to the decorations!

Each guest went home with a jar of ingredients to make cookies- of course!

Wow!  What a great Cookie Monster Party!  Lauren, you did such a great job surrounding your Birthday Boy with lots of family and lots of love on his first birthday!  Thank you for sharing!

There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child! 


What began as a simple gesture to introduce my daughter to a wonderful book series has become a special evening ritual for us- reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books!  I must admit, I didn’t realize quite how interesting these books would be to her, but she cannot wait to read all nine in the series.  It was only fitting that her birthday party focus around Little House on the Prairie!  Together, we had a ball planning all of the details of her party that related to the books in some way.  At Camille’s request, we focused on some of her favorite parts of the stories… prairie flowers, covered wagons, tee pees, the colors in the drawings of the books,  and “pretty”…because “Ma” liked things to be pretty!
