{PARTY FEATURE} One Smart Cookie [My Party Passion]

Today I am sharing a fun party collection with all of you - the "ONE SMART COOKIE" collection!

TEAM Eye Candy contributor Melissa, of Melissa Newell Party Stylist and Planner/My Party Passion! told me her idea for this party & I loved it, so a new collection was born! 
(this is her having some fun!) 

This would be a great theme either at the end of a school year or for the beginning of school (which is coming up sooner than we'd like to think - uggh)
Here is what she had to say about her latest event . . .  

You’re One Smart Cookie!
The end of the school year means Summer time fun!  It also means it was time for my annual end of the school year/welcome Summer party for the moms and kids within our small circle of friends.  This year I wanted something different than the usual Ice Cream Sundae party (don’t get me wrong, I love a good sundae with the rest of y’all). I enlisted Laura over at Eye Candy Creative Studio to help me in creating the perfect party for our Smart Cookies!

I started by sending her a snapshot of a mock up that I made looking like a big smart cookie.  We now call him CHIP!

All the mothers were asked to bring 1 dozen cookies to share while I supplied the fresh farm milk (chocolate and white).  I purchased the milk the day before at our local farmer’s market!  The cookies were a HIT and the chocolate milk bottles were empty in an hour!  Everyone had fun playing in the play yard and a game of kickball even ensued. 

One creative idea I had with this set is on a few of the items, I glued some google eyes on “Chip” to make it POP a little and come to life!  I loved the look!

I just love this set so much and can see it being used for a birthday party or just a fun milk and cookies party for the fun of it!

Budget Party Tip:  Having a party at a “non meal” time and supplying a snack or dessert item can be cost effective and less clean up for you!
Thanks Laura for all your creativity!
