{Birthday Bash} A Sesame Street Party

Hi friends and welcome to Day 5 of the Birthday Bash! If you’re visiting for the first time today, my birthday happens to be TOMORROW, so we’re sharing some fabulous parties by A Night Owl Contributors! We’ll also wrap up the week with a Birthday Bash Favorite Things Giveaway! So party along with us this week and be sure to come back tomorrow to enter this fun giveaway!



At 1 year old, one of the main things that my youngest son, Alex, identified with was Sesame Street and Elmo! So a Sesame Street themed party was a perfect fit. There were many fun aspects to this party. First up, I changed up our entryway mantel with some Sesame Street and birthday fun! I did a fairly simply and easy subway print in the party colors and made an Elmo wreath (just yarn wrapped, with 2′ white and orange cardstock circles, large black sequins for pupils)! Then I framed a portion of Alexander’s invitation as well as printed a larger version of the picture that was on his invite. One of my favorite aspects of the party were the ADORABLE Sesame Street goody buckets that the kids got to take home. I purchased the blue, red and green buckets from the dollar section of Target. I then used a 2′ circle punch to make circles for eyes, noses, and cookies. I found good-sized black sequins at Hobby Lobby that I used for pupils. Lastly I created a template from a picture online to cut out Oscar’s furry eyebrows. I simply glued those pieces in place, and voila! Sesame Street goody buckets. Party games! We had them all: Oscar’s Trash Toss, Pin the Nose on Elmo, and How Many Cookies in Cookie Monster’s Jar? And the cake! Though we had a ton of cupcakes (again, thanks to my Mom), I made a simple round “smash” cake for Alex. And who else should it be than Mr. Cookie Monster?

It was a great time and a great theme for a 1-year old’s party! I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse.
