Sesame Street 2nd Birthday Party (36 photos)
This Party is completely DIY. We hand-made everything. It was an absolute labor of love by my mom and me!
I wanted something fun and punchy for the backdrop. I thought about all the cheap frames I had gotten from garage sales and stored in the garage. I threw a little red spray paint on a few of them and printed out some fun prints to go inside. I added little fabric bunting and tissue paper pom poms and I had myself a backdrop that truly celebrated my birthday boy. I decorated the cake with buttercream and fondant, as well as the character cupcakes.
Each of the foods served were associated with a specific Sesame Street character. But I think the drinks may have been my favorite! "Juice up" with Grover's Super Juice. Who doesn't want a drink with a cape?
Elmo was at the door to welcome all the guests to Sesame Street. And there were lots of fun games and activities to keep the guests busy, including a cardboard "Hooper's Store" where the children could put on puppet shows.
To say thank you, each guest got to choose a cup with their favorite character and a few goodies inside.
