Nothing quite says “happy first birthday” like a trip to the popular wholesaler, Costco

Well, I guess that depends on who you are.

Avid Costco fans, Josie and Sebastian Gonzalez decided to bring Costco to them in celebration of their child’s birthday.

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…

I 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.

Well, you can buy them on Amazon apparently. I guess there is actually a demand for Costco tees.

The real Costco employee experience

Mason’s mom and dad even made Costco name-tags for their guests.

I think anyone attending this party would be impressed with the levels Josie and Sebastian went to in order to execute their unusually themed party.

The 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.

Guests 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.

The mom-of-1 decided to incorporate the empty Kirkland bottles into the decorations, using them as vases.

The wholesaler is the king of party supplies and everyone thinks of Costco when they’re planning a big party.

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.

You say Costco. Party, Costco. Party, Costco. Party!

And that’s the signature Costco sheet cake.

Shocked Reddit readers noticed this and called Josie out right away…

Apparently 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.

The red balloon arch really gave the Gonzalez living room major Costco vibes.

There isn’t a pet section in my local Costco wholesalers but there was one in Sebastian and Josie’s Costco themed party.

As Josie explained in the Reddit thread, Costco really does mean a great deal to her husband Sebastian.

What’s not to love? Anything can be magical if you want it to be.

Can you imagine how proud his parents would be?

“You’ve made me and your father so proud, I just can’t believe it.”

But eh, they like what they like, and I think that’s pretty cool. Continue scrolling to read about the couple who got their wedding photos taken inside a Costco. It seems it’s not just the Gonzalez family that hold Costco in special regard…
