PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jennifer

Almost every 2 year old loves Elmo…. especially little sweet Caprice! Just as she loves Elmo, she has a a fascination with Dorothy the fish! We emphasized her love for “dorthy” (as she calls her) with “Dorthy juice” and fish bowls full of blue jello and Swedish fish. We had signs throughout the party will quesions like…” has anyone seen Dorthy!” or common dialog used in Sesame Street. The setting was at her grandmothers house which has a beautiful park perfect for the Sesame Street gang to come hang out. The pavement was colored in childrens art as if you just walked onto the set with Big Bird, Elmo and and the whole gang. Since it was a 2 year olds birthday we kept to elmo pizzas and “Piggies in a Blanket”. The fruit and veggie trays were even shaped as characters. Every child took home an Elmo themed cookie and bubbles that were customized with matching labels to the theme of the party.

The best part of this party was the wonderful spirit everyone brought by rocking there sesame street gear! Half the attendees including the beautiful birthday girl with her apron dress shaped as elmo dressed to represent the occasion. Dad had sesame street slippers and a shirt while mom wore a vintage inspired Elmo tee with bright red lips and a big red bow! Not only did the kids have fun at this part but the adults were reminded how to get to “Caprice Street” !

A note from Brooke Brumback (mother)…
My daughter is absolutely obsessed with elmo and his goldfish Dorothy too. after my husband surprised her for christmas with a fish bowl with her own real life dorothy and the rest of the gang in the fish bowl and some cute and pink and purple rocks to add to her girlyness, Caprice was sold and hooked, fish hook sinker and all! it was only obvious to have an elmo theme 2nd birthday party. we also couldn’t resist continuing with the theme and took her to a live musical elmo show the next day on her actually birthday! I myself am a huge elmo lover and had a great time planning her birthday party!

    You spelled Dorothy incorrectly on all of the print outs and in your post. It's not Dorthy.

    • jenn s. says:

      Hi Ava – You are correct about the spelling – but I think the printables were modeled after how little Caprice actually pronounces “Dorothy” because it is spelled correctly on the invitation. I updated Jennifer’s party details with that note. :)
