In Holly’s words…“While the theme for this party was sesame street, I wanted to stay away from making it too cheesy with characters everywhere. I tried instead to focus on the color scheme, which was red, yellow, green, and blue. All of the food was inspired from sesame street; pizza (elmo’s favorite food), fruit, Dorothy’s goldfish, Cookie Monster’s monster cookies, snuffle’s truffle’s, chocolate milk, cake pops, and character cupcakes. I wanted something fun and colorful for the wall behind the food table, so I tied multiple pieces of ribbon to a wooden dowel and used 3M hooks to hang it from the ceiling. I made the lamp post sign from wooden pieces I found at Michaels craft store. I also wrapped some empty boxes with colorfulwrapping paper to add some height to the table, and found the great red cake plates at Home Goods.

I bought a goldfish to set out and told all the kids that Elmo’s goldfish, Dorothy, had come to visit. They all loved him and were excited to say hi. I bought some vintage sesame street books from a local thrift store and cut out some pictures to frame for the activity stations, and to make the thank you tags. I found some vintage puzzles on amazon and had a puzzle station where kids could put the puzzles together and then make their own with blank puzzles that I found at a local craft store.

The favors were little plastic jars filled with play dough that I found on esty. I also filled cellophane bags with organic popcorn for the adults.”
