Delia’s 2nd Birthday!

Posted on

This was one of my most recent projects!  We had a small, family party at our house for my daughter’s 2nd birthday.  Of course there is never a time I can keep things simple.  Delia loves Elmo!  So I decided to run with the Elmo theme.  I found most of my ideas on Pinterest.  Here is what I ended up with:

Here is the Welcome Sign for the party.

I loved this table!  It had all of Elmo’s favorites.  For this table I ordered a plastic fishbowl from Amazon and filled it with blue Hawaiian Punch mixed with Sprite.  I placed a few Swedish Fish in the bottom of each glass just for fun.  The other side of the table had four different kinds of snacking goldfish, which I changed at cake time to four different kinds of dessert goldfish.  I decorated the tables with a plastic table cloth, tags to let people know what kind of goldfish they were eating, and a few scattered crayons.

These were a few other decorations around the house.  My centerpiece was a giant martini glass filled with crayons.  I also used black, red, and orange balloons around the house to tie the Elmo theme together.

Here are a few more of the Elmo treats we enjoyed.  The fruit and veggie platters were ideas from Pinterest.  The Elmo cake was a Wilton mold that I’ve used several times over the years.

I think everyone’s favorite part of the party was the Sesame Street Photo Booth.  Even the adults had fun choosing characters and posing for a picture.  I must give credit to Catch My Party for this awesome idea.  I created this backdrop with felt and a hot glue gun and it was a hit!  Also I did my own take on PAPERandPANCAKES props.

This is what everyone saw as they left the party.

I had such a great time planning and preparing for this party.  Most of the projects were simple and fun to do.  Plus I was able to get most of my materials at the dollar store, so it was inexpensive as well.

Hope you enjoyed!
