"C" is for Cookie!

After posting our reader request inspiration board for a coral and brown anniversary party, we received a new inspiration board request from For Your Inspiration:

"I wanted to ask your advice on a birthday party I'm planning for my daughter's 2nd birthday...the party theme is Sesame Street, but I don't want it to be saturated with Elmo, Big Bird and Cookie Monster. I want it to be classy and personal, not cartoon-y and commercial. Is that possible?"

I do believe that you can host a classy birthday party for your daughter without crossing the line into commercialization. Just use a few character touches here and there and keep the rest of the party simple and sweet. Here is an inspiration board built around Sesame Street's Cookie Monster:

"C" is for Cookie!

  • Set the tone for a fun and modern party with this cookie monster colored dot invitation by Inviting Company (title the invitation "C" is for Cookie for more character) -- FineStationery.com
  • Place a snuggly plush cookie monster on each child's chair with a cellophane favor bag full of these chocolate chip cookies and a card printed with your favorite cookie recipe. Tie the bag off with a blue ribbon and a matching tag that says "'C'" is for Cookie" -- Boyds Bears, Saks Fifth Avenue & FineStationery.com
  • Set up a cookie filled dessert buffet featuring these cookies that are personalized with your daughter's first initial -- Rolling Pin Productions

CUTE! I have those Martha Stewart tissue paper balls, cause I used them for my girlfriends baby shower. I couldn't get rid of them, so they are now being used as decoration in my little boys room. They hang from the ceiling, and they are TOO CUTE! Just a fun idea for anyone who reads this...

Jess, thank you so much! I love that you chose Cookie Monster over Elmo.
What else do I heart?

1. polka-dots
2. an un-sesame street invitation (hadn't thought of that) and it might prevent on overload of themed gifts:)
3. MS tissue paper poms. I've used them before, will use them again.
4. the party favor idea. It's so simple to do and totally something everyone can use later.

Thanks again for taking the time to put this together for me.
