PARTY DETAILS, as told by Amber
:

This Party is completely DIY.  We hand-made everything. It was an absolute labor of love by my mom and me!

I wanted something fun and punchy for the backdrop.  I thought about all the cheap frames I had gotten from garage sales and stored in the garage.  I threw a little red spray paint on a few of them and printed out some fun prints to go inside.  I added little fabric bunting and tissue paper pom poms and I had myself a backdrop that truly celebrated my birthday boy.  I decorated the cake with buttercream and fondant, as well as the character cupcakes.

Each of the foods served were associated with a specific Sesame Street character.  But I think the drinks may have been my favorite!  “Juice up” with Grover’s Super Juice.  Who doesn’t want a drink with a cape?

Elmo was at the door to welcome all the guests to Sesame Street. And there were lots of fun games and activities to keep the guests busy, including a cardboard “Hooper’s Store” where the children could put on puppet shows.

To say thank you, each guest got to choose a cup with their favorite character and a few goodies inside.

Thank you so much Brenda! I handmade juice bottles. I printed labels onto adhesive paper and attached them to the bottles. I also cut the capes out of felt and made cut out the Super Grover emblem with my silhouette machine.

Loved the whole theme. My son’s 1st birthday is at the end of this month and it’s also Sesame Street. You saved me with the Super Grover table as I didn’t know what to do with Grover! LOL! However, I wanted to ask you where you bought the blue juice bottles? BJ’s? Costco? :)

Amber SAYS:

Sorry to just be responding. The bottle are repurposed soda bottles. I just made blue Kool-aid and poured it into the bottles using a funnel. Thanks!!

Such original ideas!! Where did you find the metal garbage can with lid? I’m looking for something exactly like that for my son’s birthday party.

How did you get the icing so red? I want to make my son’s “Elmo” cupcakes and I’m stumped on how to get the icing the proper Elmo red. ;)

Such a cute party!!! Where did you find the blue solo cups for Cookie Monster? That color is perfect shade but I haven’t seen them. Great job :)

Samantha SAYS:

I’m guessing you made the favor cups and the cookie monster cups. Did you purchase they eyes and mouths or did you just cut them out yourself?

I love everything! But how did you do the cups? Did you cut out each face? Are they stickers?
