Cookie Monster

Cookie Monster makes an adorable birthday theme for your Sesame Street–loving son, but we're swooning over this imaginative twist to the idea that we saw on The Party Wagon: Pairing Cookie Monster with a milk-and-cookies theme. ("C" is for cookie, but it's also for cute!)

The Cake:
Because one treat isn't enough: Add a mini chocolate chip cookie to the mouth of a store-bought Cookie Monster cupcake, or make your own. (Wilton's tip 233 can help you create the look of Cookie's fur.) You can also bake a chocolate chip cookie in the shape of the number one and add to a full-sized Cookie Monster cake.

The Food:
What's on the menu? Milk and cookies, of course! Serve milk in chilled glasses or bottles that are dipped in chocolate sprinkles, and add blue and white striped straws. Set up a cookie buffet that includes all sorts of different kinds of cookies.

The Decor: Bright "Cookie Monster" blue, brown and white create a color scheme that's festive, and fitting for the theme. Make chocolate chip cookies out of construction paper to decorate walls; cover tables with plain white cloths and spruce up with a blue and white chevron-striped table runner. Add construction paper eyes and a mouth to bright blue tissue paper pom poms and you've got an instant Cookie Monster to hang from the ceiling.
