It took my third baby turning 3 years old to have a sesame street party at our house. I'm surprised it took that long. Sesame street was a childhood favorite of mine, and those characters still have a special place in my heart. Elmo won over her heart, so this year it was all about him. I convinced Princess #3 to let me add in a few of the other characters too, to keep Elmo company. That seemed to appease her.
You guys know by now that I am all about the cake at parties. I was so excited to do this cake. I loved the bright Sesame street colors. You can't help but be happy with all those colors around. The classic Sesame Street street sign with her name and age on it was a perfect decoration for the top tier with Elmo, Big Bird, and Cookie Monster underneath.
And a Sesame Street party just can't happen without some delicious cookies for Cookie Monster and all his friends and fans.
In case guests wanted something other than cake and cookies, we had an Elmo and Big Bird fruit platter with some sweet strawberries, blackberries, and oranges for Elmo, and pineapple and banana for Big Bird. Some yogurt and blackberries finished off the eyes for both puppets.
A cute little framed sign and some colorful letters scattered around the table finished things off!
