Well, I guess that depends on who you are.
Baby Mason was turning 1, and his parents wanted to do something a bit special. For people that love perusing the aisles of Costco as much of these guys, they couldn't have thought of a more special theme.
Here's what happened...
Meet the Gonzales Family...
via: Josie GonzalezI did warn you that these guys are fans of Costco... I mean they've even got Costco t-shirts and they don't work there.
Where did they get the t-shirts from then? I hear you ask...
via: AmazonWell, you can buy them on Amazon apparently. I guess there is actually a demand for Costco tees.
The real Costco employee experience
via: Josie GonzalezMason's mom and dad even made Costco name-tags for their guests.
Guests were impressed.
via: Josie GonzalezI think anyone attending this party would be impressed with the levels Josie and Sebastian went to in order to execute their unusually themed party.
Free samples anyone?
via: Josie GonzalezThe Gonzalez's cleverly laid out the party-snack on red trays, just like the ones free samples are distributed from in the real Costco stores.
I heart Kirkland.
via: Josie GonzalezGuests at the Costco themed knees-up also seemed to dress for the occasion, wearing tee shirts that indicated they love Costco's private label, Kirkland Signature.
Josie is a self-confessed fan of Kirkland's alcohol line.
via: Josie GonzalezThe mom-of-1 decided to incorporate the empty Kirkland bottles into the decorations, using them as vases.
There's no denying Costco is the place to go for party food.
Are Costco parties a thing?I guess the Costco food court wouldn't be the worst place to host your birthday party. Jumbo hot dogs, sundaes and sodas? Winner, Winner.
Weirdly the Gonzalez's didn't get a Costco cake.
via: Josie GonzalezShocked Reddit readers noticed this and called Josie out right away...
It's the one thing they left out...
via: RedditApparently Josie wanted to make Mason's first birthday cake from scratch. I mean no offense or anything but everyone knows Costco cake is the unbeatable champion in the birthday party cake game...Rookie mistake, Josie.
Are we in Costco?
via: Josie GonzalezThe red balloon arch really gave the Gonzalez living room major Costco vibes.
Pooch for sale.
via: Josie GonzalezThere isn't a pet section in my local Costco wholesalers but there was one in Sebastian and Josie's Costco themed party.
How much do these guys love Costco?
via: RedditAs Josie explained in the Reddit thread, Costco really does mean a great deal to her husband Sebastian.
That guy sure likes a well-stocked wholesaler.What's not to love? Anything can be magical if you want it to be.
Maybe little Mason will get a job in Costco one day.
via: Josie GonzalezCan you imagine how proud his parents would be?
"We've been dreaming of this day since your first birthday..."
via: Josie Gonzalez"You've made me and your father so proud, I just can't believe it."
