Was I loud enough? Are you in the party mood?
Welcome to the Stampin' Addict's Party Blog Hop. It's our 3rd anniversary! Weren't Yapha's projects just adorable. I really like the onesie card. I now
want someone in my family to get pregnant so I can throw a baby shower.
Well, not my son and his girlfriend just yet!
I created ideas to use for a toddler birthday party using our friends from Sesame Street. My son, who is now 29, loved Sesame Street. Kermit was his favorite Muppet, but he also loved Big Bird and Grover. Good thing he doesn't read my blog. I'm not suppose to share stuff about him. :)
I am so tired of punching circles. lol I have so many pictures. I will definitely be doing tutorials this next week about many of the projects shown here. Please don't laugh at my food treats. My hands are so sore from punching circles this week. It really was hard to hold the icing bags and all.
The Wall Decor and Banner
I created heads with the new Rosette die. I wanted them on the table but they were too big. The banner is lots of circles attached in pairs along a length of Baker's Twine. I die cut the letters for Happy Birthday with the Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies and layered them on the circles. I had extra faces so I attached them along the banner also.
The Place Settings and Treats
I had first done a plate with Elmo's face on the plate, but it was too busy. For each place setting there is a different character. If you had more than 4 guests you could repeat the characters. I decorated a straw with a punch art face. I added the face features to a horn and covered the juice boxes to match each character. For treats there are Cake Pops, (Well not really, I used marshmallows. It was a mess. It would have been worse to try to do cake and have the cake balls fall apart. hahaha) Cookie Monster mini cupcakes, ( I found 3" mini ice cream cones that I put cupcakes into and frosted.) and instead of Oscar, I placed Wormy, his best friend, in a mini dirt cupcake. There are Big Bird cookies but they are truly awful. I did them last. You can see then later this week.
The Treat Bags and Goodies
I created Treat Bags with the large Scallop Circle die and Box #2.
Inside would be, bubbles, (I decorated them like the juice boxes.), from the $1 store, plastic tops, (I covered the Cars pictures with punch art circles.) and small plastic Frisbees, which I decorated like the tops. I had fun making a sucker tree. I used colored tissue for the characters, then just glued on circles for the features. Lots and lots of circles. :)
I did a peaks and Valley card for the birthday card and Scallop Circle cards of Cookie Monster and Elmo for invitations and thank you cards. They are in the center of the table in the first picture. I'll show more about them later in the week too.
I hope these inspire you to think about having a theme party for a young child in your life. Who could be better guests at a party than the Sesame Street Gang? Next up in the hop is Sara at Lily's Ink Pad, with a Monkey birthday party. I can just imagine the hijinks that went on at that party!
