Party Recap

After a blow out "breakfast in bed" bash for my daughter's 1st birthday (complete with customized embroidered pajamas for each guest), my husband begged me to plan a more "low key" gym and pizza party for my little one. Being in the PR and event planning business for a living, it's hard to not get super involved with all of the little details, so I immediately reached out to my trusted vendors and went to work on what I enjoy doing most - planning fabulous and fun get togethers! Our little lady is obsessed with anything Elmo and Sesame Street right now so I immediately thought to build out her very own "Sienna Street", complete with life-sized cutouts of her favorite characters, a fun bounce house and trampoline, a Sesame Street glitter tattoo station, a musical performance with all of her favorite "Sunny Days" hits and a full gymnasium for the kiddos to run amuck! Guests enjoyed delectable food and beverages including an incredible tasting confetti cake, mini Sesame Street-themed cupcakes, character cake pops, Oscar the Grouch's garbage cans with gummy worms and Cookie Monster's milk and cookies to name a few of the highlights! Everyone had a blast, including the birthday girl who never wanted the party to end, and kids left with custom character t-shirts with their names on them to remind them of the fun that they had. A great time was had by all!
