When our son's birthday started approaching (rather quickly I might add) me and my wife decided on a Sesame street theme 'cause little man loves his muppets!!
So then I started thinking. What if we have Cookie Monster cookies eating his favorite thing. A cookie.
We loved the idea. A cookie eating a cookie! ha. Talk about a big hit!!
All our cookies were gone!!
The cupcakes didn't last long either.
|* White cake confetti, with swirled butter cream.|
We did sugared versions of
Elmo and Cookie Monster on top some of the cupcakes too!
Mmmm-mmmmm-MMM! Cookie Dough Dip!!
This is so good without being too over-powering and kids LOVE it!
We used a recipe similar to Very Culinary's recipe...
|*Served with cinnamon-sugar graham crackers and honey teddy grahams.|
....but without the toffee bits.
*Notes for making dip: Mini chocolate chips work best. Don't forget the vanilla. YES, the brown sugar makes all the difference! This works best if you make it the night before and let it set in the frig.
How about some elmo-shaped sandwiches!?!
|We did Peanut butter and Jelly, Chicken Salad & Ham and Cheese|
Goldfish...need we say more??
|Fish bowl, goldfish, red ribbon and a scoop. DONE.|
|We covered a card table with an Elmo blanket. Red cups and bins from the Dollar Store. Perfect.|
Oscar the Grouch vegetable tray
|Broccoli, black olives, carrots, ranch dressing & 2 ramekins.|
THEY ATE'EM UP!!

Food, drink, bouncy house, Disney Station on Pandora playing. Toys. Games.
Out by the bouncy house we also had a Sesame Street Scene Setter up for the kids to take pictures with.
Kids, friends and family had a blast.
We also had a bubble machine set up at the back door. The door was left open so people could come in and out. When they did...MASS of bubbles, ha!! Soo much fun! Plus, every now and again the wind would take the bubbles and load our backyard with it. Great idea to have a few of these put out.
Our little guy and his friends had such a blast!!
SUCH a good time, that we decided to share the theme and ideas of our party so
that all our people out there can have a blast with it too.
"What will we make next??"
