Our boy turned 2 over a week ago and we celebrated with a Sesame Street party! He loves Sesame Street and he no longer has just one favorite (Elmo). He loves Cookie Monster, Big Bird and the Count. So I knew we had to do a Sesame Street theme.
Like last year, I hung his monthly photos. I used twine, clothespins and two thumbtacks (to tie the twine to.) The monthly photos are one of my favorite things when I see them all together like this.
Every time he would get a gift, he’d look at it (or in the bag) and say, “What IS it?”
Where everything came from:
–Cookie cutters are from Sweet Baking Supply.
–Invitations were designed by me, printed at Sam’s Club as 5×7 or 4×6 photos.
–Water bottle labels are designed by me. (You can purchase the download in my Etsy shop.)
–The happy birthday banner was made by me last year.
–The banner on the table was made by me. I used leftover fabric from a hat my mom made.
–Elmo cake was made by me. The cake pan was purchased at JoAnns with a 50% off coupon.
–Big Bird cake was made by my sister-in-law. She scored the cake pan at a yard sale I think for $1.
–Favors came from the Dollar Tree.
–Elmo balloons also came from the Dollar Tree!
–Sesame Street fondant cutters (for the sugar cookie faces) are similar to these on ebay (I bought mine on ebay and use them for cheese, snacks and now cookies).
–Sesame Street character banners came from Mendie, but originally Party City.
