Today’s featured party is a Sesame Street birthday party for 2-year-old Benjamin! Ben’s mom, Allison, sent in these pictures and I’m so impressed how she packed so much entertainment into an indoor party – that’s not always easy! But as you’ll see, she had a caricaturist, a music area, and an indoor bounce house (yep, you read that right!) for the kids to enjoy, plus lots of Sesame Street theme decorations and great party favors. Enjoy!
An adorable custom birthday sign greeted guests to the party. It was made by Kellie of Hope2Create, whom Allison highly recommends: “Great quality, excellent communication, fast shipping!”
The Bert and Ernie cut-outs that decorated the guest book table were also made by Hope2Create.
A printable birthday banner from Chickabug was hung behind the food table.
Benjamin’s big birthday cake – featuring Elmo on the top, and colorful fondant dots on the sides – was created by Creative Cakes.
Each dish on the table was labeled with a printable buffet card from Chickabug.
Love these custom water bottles all lined up in a row!
It was cold outside, but not to worry – Allison set up an indoor bounce house (!) to keep the kids entertained!
A caricaturist from Talk of the Town Variety Entertainment drew whimsical pictures of each party guest.
The kids had fun playing in a music area!
The amazing party favor bags were a custom order from Michael Coscia, who actually specializes in promotional items for businesses, but created the bags as a favor for the family. Allison says “I think he’s missing his calling not making party favors more often!”
Allison stuffed each goody bag with Sesame Street themed favors, including Sesame Street coloring books ($1 each from Dollar Tree’s website), an 8-pack of Crayola crayons, Goldfish crackers, and Sesame Street stickers.
The printable favor tags on the bags are from Chickabug.
What a great party – thank you for sharing, Allison! Happy 2nd birthday to Benjamin!
