Sesame Street Second Birthday

Sesame Street Second Birthday

I always love recapping the details of a party because I find other’s posts online SO HELPFUL when looking for ideas.  I mean, this party is far from “Pinterest worthy” but it was fun and (I think) looked cute!

I had initially bought these banners to hang, but we were not allowed to attach anything to the walls or ceilings, so I mounted them on cardboard and we propped them up against the walls.

We served food- in this picture: hot dogs (Mr. Hooper’s Hot Dogs), goldfish (Dorothy’s goldfish), and pasta salad (Mr. Noodle’s pasta salad).  You can also kind of see the ducky straw cups I got from Oriental Trading.  They were a hit with the kids and adults alike.

We have favors that were finger paint pouches and sunglasses.  The tag said: This party was brought to you by the letter R and the number 2! Hope you had fun! Thank you for coming!

I made Rubber Ducky Punch- blue raspberry Hawaiian punch and Sprite topped with marshmallows for the bubbles!

I took a plastic pumpkin from Michael’s and sprayed it with primer and blue spray paint…glued on styrofoam balls and black paper circles and we had a Cookie Monster!  The kids loved grabbing cookies out of his mouth.

I made Monster fruit, veggie and cheese trays.  They were a little prettier before the drive to town…

I made Bert out of pineapple, blackberries and a clementine.  His eyes are yogurt and blueberries

Big Bird was cheese cubes, carrots and ranch with olives for eyes.

And Elmo was strawberries, a clementine and blueberries with yogurt and blueberry eyes.  (his blueberries got a little crazy on the drive!)

This was our fun display!  I got the personalized sign from Zulily months ago.   The paper cut outs on sticks were from Etsy.

I had this banner made from Vistaprint and it was perfect for our cupcakes.  We just did rainbow cupcakes with Sesame Street picks I found on Amazon.

These paper lanterns were meant to be hung, but we couldn’t hang anything in our room.  So I cut off the strings and glued them to a piece of plastic for the base.

And the felt balls were from Jane.com months ago. Again, I wanted to hang them, but couldn’t, so they made cute table decorations.

This was our entire set up.  The red bucket is full of water bottles on ice.

The gifts went on the same table as the favors and I moved a chair over there for Remi to open gifts.

 

It was so fun and perfect for our sweet two year old!
