PARTY DETAILS as told by Aurora

This Sesame Street first birthday party was inspired by my son’s love of the Sesame Street show and his favorite characters, Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch. The focus of the party was to feature these characters throughout (plush and paper) and also the Sesame Street famous symbol, the lamppost.

The table decor featured 2 main centerpieces and 2 small decor items. The first main centerpiece was the Sesame Street lamppost which I made from a wooden box, wood chair leg, styrofoam ball, and printable paper from the Sesame Street printable package. It actually had “Sunny days sweeping clouds away” going around the wood box. The 2nd main centerpiece was Oscar the grouch in a metal trashcan with a Pom Pom Oscar and Large Oscar party circle printable. The smaller decor on each table featured a Sesame Street bus with party circles from the printable package, and either a fishbowl with goldfish crackers and an Elmo plush character, or a cookie jar with Cookie Monster. I wanted the kids table to
