I can't believe this party is over. I feel as if it has been on my mind before he was even born... oh wait it was. I remember seeing a cookie monster cake at Harmons when I was pregnant and thought that would be a cute theme to do if I had a boy. Well I had a boy and his party went from cookie monster to Dr. Seuss back to cookies but with out the monster part. I did a take on a vintage/retro style of cookies and milk. I went to a lot of work building part of his decor, hunting out certain vintage things I wanted, and baking. So for the next while I will break down his party on what I did and how I did it, so stay tuned, but for now I am going to give you photos of the overall decor. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I held the party at a park and set up different stations around to fill up the space. This helps getting 50 plus people moving around so it didn't seem as crowded. We had the Milk Station, Play station, Looking back station, Main table, and the Party favor station.
*** I was so busy the whole party and I took a lot of pictures but it wasn't until I got home that when I was using one of my lens that all my pictures were WAY over exposed so sorry about the quality of some of them.
