Brought to you by the letter A and the Number 1

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?  This is such a cute party that can really be used for any age who loves Sesame Street.  One of my best friends recently had a Sesame Street theme party for her 2 year old and I wanted to share the invites with you, they were really cute:

She took the first letter of the guest's last name and tied a tag to the invite to personalized each invitation.  You should check out her blog, Home Sweet Living, to get the full details on the party. Click here for all the info.

This fun favor bag idea comes from Buggy's Basement. Cute idea that would not be hard to create.

Below is a Sunny and Bright Elmo party done by Michelle from I DO invitations by Michelle designed for her daughter’s 2nd birthday!  These pictures are from HWTM, where Michelle was featured.

Such a sweet touch, a letter from Elmo himself, and did you notice even the clip stand has a picture of Elmo on it?

For anyone who has watched Elmo's world knows that Elmo loves his Goldfish, "Dorothy".  Place small simple, goldfish bowls as your centerpiece, with real goldfish of course! You can even let the kids feed Dorothy!

What little kid (or adult for that matter) won't love their very own Sesame Street sign? How cool is this? Want to know the real kicker? You can get your own made here!

If you choose to do a candy buffet, you might want to check this one out over at Hostess with the Mostess:

Next, you have to check out these cute DIY invitations, made from washcloths!  They come from the Freckled Laundry blog, you MUST check it out!

After setting the tone of your fabulous party, create a dramatic entrance for your guests.  I love this picture below, Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster tracks, very cute, done by Elle Belle's Bows blog.  You can click here to see all the details of her daughters 2nd Sesame Street party.

Kate, over at And Everything Sweet did an A-MAZING job with her daughter's party:

 I mean seriously, this cake is over the top and I am totally loving it!

And how stink'n cute is this sign, Kate really did an amazing job with this party!

I love all the labels as the sesame street, street sign....oh so cute! And these Elmo chocolates....yes, please!

Yes, this is what I was talking about....use a real gold fish as a favor for the kids, add the crayons, the parents will just love you for it!

These hats that Kate made are adorable, I want one!  Yet another DIY success!

This next party is brought to you by the ladies over at 11cupcakes, a great blog and they have their own esty shop to purchase a lot of these items and personalize them for you, start shopping here!

 I spent more time on this posting than planned.  My kids are asking if I can finally make them lunch!  Let's face it, it's such a cute party theme and it reminds me of when I was a kid...when things were simple. Hope you enjoyed a trip down memory lane and picked up some great ideas from some creative ladies along the way!
