Nom Nom Nom, A Cookie Monster First Birthday

Hard to believe a year has come and gone already, but what better way to turn one then surrounded by friends, family, and lots of cookies!

If you haven’t figured it out already, Cookie Monster was the theme for this party and, as the little man loves his pancakes, I planned the celebration for late-morning to serve a delicious, kid-friendly brunch menu! From mini-pancakes and cinnamon buns, to DIY yogurt parfait and a cereal bar. Then to top it off, some frootloop marshmallow treats, blue jello, cupcakes, cake and, of course, lots of cookies (and milk!)!

Cookie Monster First Birthday Brunch

#PartyTip – DIY Yogurt Parfaits are a great alternative to assembling individual parfaits… Not only can guests pick and choose their toppings, but leftovers are easy to pack up and re-use without a fridge full of parfaits! 😉

The cereal bar was a hit, not only by the kids but for the “big kids” too, and you want to talk about something easy with minimal work… just grab a few jars, fill with cereal, add bowls, spoons and milk, and voila, done and ready! The cupcakes were just adorable, with the mix of mini cookie monsters with cookies and chocolate chip cookie topping. Then the cake…. one of my favorite, and most delicious, parts…. the chocolate cake, done up like Cookie Monster, had the most delicious layer of cookie dough filling!

The prep for the big day was lots of fun, between the “Nom Nom Nom”, “One” and other banners, Cookie Monster figurines, milk crates, and cookie Continue reading “Nom Nom Nom, A Cookie Monster First Birthday”

Sock Monkey Birthday

This past weekend was our beautiful little niece’s first birthday and I was honoured that my sister-in-law asked me to help with the decorations. This is one of the cutest party themes for little ones out there (at least in my opinion) and with her great ideas, it turned out absolutely amazing!

Here are a few pictures from the party; including a birthday banner, fortune cupcake wrapper, tent card …. and the popcorn cones were a hit! My personal favourite was the ‘I am One‘ banner and the tags on the old fashioned milk jugs for the milk and cookies!

A Baby Minnie First Birthday

Glitter everywhere, but the Baby Minnie First Birthday decorations are done and I can not get over how CUTE they turned out!

Baby Minnie with Glitter

Tonights project is all about baby minnie, first birthday, and glitter! I think I may be a little too excited to see how everything comes out, from the mom’s love of glitter and the beautiful pastel pinks and yellows for baby minnie mouse, this promised to be full of adorable!

Here is the part I look the most forward to making… the cake topper! When she showed me the cake they had chosen and then just let me run with baby minnie and the pastel colours, all I could think was a cute little pendant banner was most definitely needed to frame in the centrepiece. So we went with that: an adorable little pendant banner to top off a one with baby minnie layered on pastel card stock and completed with glitter!

Now the fun begins…..
