Today’s featured party is a Sesame Street theme party that was brought to you by the letter L and the number 2! Oh – and by one very creative and crafty customer of mine, Lauren! Lauren was featured last year for her son Liam’s golf theme first birthday, and she and Liam are back again this year with another great party. Some fun details to watch for: pretzel “crayons,” Elmo’s goldfish, and the birthday guestbook (it’s a really sweet idea!).

Sesame Street birthday party - tons of ideas!!

Liam’s adorable backdrop was – surprisingly – homemade! Lauren says, “My future brother-in-law designed the sign and we printed it on my father’s blueprint printer!”

Instead of serving a birthday cake, Lauren made a colorful trifle. She says, “I made 4 cakes in the theme colors (red, blue, yellow and green) and layered them with Cool Whip mixed with cream cheese, plus layers of white chocolate chips. It was super yummy! Actually, I could go for some now!”

Sesame Street birthday party - Cookies

Liam’s cookies were all homemade, including the “L” and “2” cookies, and the chocolate chip “Monster Cookies” in the jar.

Green-frosted chocolate push-up pops were labeled as “Oscar’s Trash.”

Even the cheese was cut out in letters and numbers!

The “crayons” were a big hit at the party! Lauren made them by dipping Rold Gold honey wheat pretzels in tinted chocolate, then adding paper wrappers.

Sesame Street birthday party cupcakes

The fondant cupcake toppers were made by Sweeten Your Day. Lauren says, “They were awesome!”

Lauren hung a homemade balloon birthday wreath and spelled out Liam’s name using painted wooden letters and frames from Ikea.

Liam’s birthday banner is a personalized printable from Chickabug. To snazz it up, Lauren hung it using four colors of curling ribbon (red, blue, orange and green).

Sesame Street birthday party - Elmo loves his goldfish, his crayons too!

How cute is this idea! To make the crayon serving bowl (serving Elmo’s goldfish, of course!), Lauren taped a piece of paper around a Pyrex dish, then hot-glued the crayons to the paper.

Sesame Street fruit and veggie platters

V is for veggie and F is for fruit! Elmo is made from tomatoes, olives, and carrots; Big Bird is made from pineapple; Oscar the Grouch is made from broccoli, carrots, green peppers, and olives; and Cookie Monster is made from blueberries and blackberries.

The cute centerpieces were made using personalized favor circles from Chickabug and Sesame Street character cut-outs from Cutting Up Texas.

I love this idea! Lauren purchased a copy of “When Is MY Birthday?” and had guests sign it. The homemade sign reads:

WAIT! Stop here you see,
And write a very special message to me!
A birthday wish or just say hi,
To your favorite TWO year old guy.
On the front, the back, or any pages,
It’s something I will treasure all my ages.

At the end of the party, each child took home a large goody bag filled with Sesame Street books and goodies. The printable favor tags are from Chickabug, and the individually personalized Sesame Street signs were homemade.
