PARTY DETAILS, as told by Kia

I grew up on the “Street” so I was overjoyed when my daughter also developed an affinity for Sesame Street and all the characters who live there.  It was only natural that the theme for her 2nd birthday party would be Sesame Street.  I chose the familiar question, “Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?”, the iconic street sign and Big Bird as the main design elements for the party. From there I started pulling together all the pieces that would make our version of this classic party unique.  I designed and constructed many of the party decorations myself.  For those I wasn’t able to make I located some prize vintage items and for others I found wonderful vendors to help “find the way to Sesame Street!”
