Party Recap

We had a PERFECT day to celebrate Annika's 2nd Birthday on Sesame Street.

After 3 months of non stop planning, creating decorations, making banners, assembling centerpieces and planning the food menu the day had finally arrived and it was a hit all the way around.

Our daughter was so excited to see all the fun Sesame Street characters everywhere and to have 10 of her little friends along with family to enjoy the fun day ahead.

From balloons, to music, to Pinata smashing she smiled and had a great time.

When Elmo arrived at her party to sing and dance with her she was in Heaven. It was the cutest thing and to just see her face light up because Elmo came to wish her a Happy Birthday was PRICELESS.

Enjoy the pictures. It was a fun day had by all :)

    Hello Marisol. Glad you like the centerpieces. The whole party was lots of fun to make and put together. I actually found them on FOUND tons of ideas out there and I ordered the faces and then attached them to the sticks and found my holders and made them up myself :) Good luck

    Hello Judy. I just bought Pretzel Rods at the store and then dipped them in White Chocolate and roled them in purple sugar. Leaving some with just the white chocolate. Then I bought the pretzel bags from Wilton cake supplies and bought the ribbon to tie on them. I bought the glass cookie jar at the dollar store and bought stickers from Michaels to put on the jar itself. Glad you enjoyed them. Hope this helps.

    Hello Sue. You can find the character faces on Etsy under Sesame Street Die Cuts. Then I put them on the sticks and made my own containers for them to stand in. Here is a link you can most likely find all of them at. Good luck
