Sesame Street Beginnings 1st Birthday

For 40 years, kids have loved Sesame Street! Kids of all ages recognize Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and the rest of the fun cast of monsters from the show. Celebrate your little one's first birthday with a great Sesame Street theme party. We have Sesame Street theme party goods and decorations that feature Elmo, Cookie Monster and Big Bird as babies, surrounded by bright colors and a big number 1! It's perfect for a Sesame Street birthday party that's as special as your son or daughter.

Sesame Street Party Invitations
Start with a fun custom sesame street birthday party invitation for your little one's Sesame Street theme birthday party. Announce on the invitation that, "This birthday is brought to you by the Number 1 and the Letter C." (Use the first initial of your child's name here.)

Or, how about a custom caricature invitation. We can have your child drawn standing next to Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and all of his or her favorite Sesame Street characters and a big cake with a giant number 1 candle on top of the cake. Your baby only turns one once! Celebrate with a one of the kind invitation.

Another cute (and simple) choice is a fill in the blank Sesame Street party invitations. There are also matching thank you notes so you can thank everyone for gifts. No matter what invitation you choose, throw some bright balloon confetti in your envelope to get everyone excited for your big day!

Sesame Street Decorations and Party Supplies
Welcome your guests by playing the fun and familiar sounds from Sesame Street on your stereo with a great Sesame Street CD. It includes 20 songs including the "Sesame Street theme song", "Rubber Duckie", "C Is For Cookie", "The People In Your Neighborhood" and more!

Near the entry have a Big Bird jumbo air walker balloon and Elmo jumbo air walker balloon. These 50" tall balloons have weighted feet and "walk" around the room. The little ones will LOVE these. They are great for photos.

There is nothing that screams birthday party as much as crepe paper streamers hung around a party room. This is a toddler's birthday party, so match the Sesame Street theme using bright and very fun colors of crepe paper. Primary color crepe paper in yellow, red and blue work very well with this theme and match all the paper goods for the party perfectly.

Add a Sesame Street personalized banner that wishes the birthday boy or girl a happy 1st birthday. (This is a great photo op.)

You know how much we love balloons at a birthday party! For your 1st birthday Sesame Street party, mix together one large Elmo Mylar balloon with a few Sesame Street 1st birthday Mylar balloons and an assortment of blue, yellow and red #1 balloons hung from bright colored curling ribbon. Always use an odd number of balloons to make the best looking bouquets. Don't forget the helium tank to inflate the balloons.
 
Sesame Street Table Decorations and Menu
Start with fabulous Sesame Beginnings paper goods to match the theme. There are plates, cups, napkins and more to make serving (and clean up!) nice and easy. A red tablecover or any solid color tablcover is the perfect choice to go with all these great paper goods.

We have an adorable Sesame beginnings 1st birthday centerpiece that features baby Elmo, baby Big Bird and baby Cookie monster. It's adorable and would be a nice addition to your 1st birthday tables. Balloons always make a fun centerpiece. Mix together more bouquets of Elmo Mylar balloon with a few Sesame Street 1st birthday Mylar balloons and latex balloons and tie them together. They can be weighed down with simple balloons weights.

Another fun centerpiece is an Elmo piñata. You can use it for an activity, of course, but it's also great on the center of a dinner table or on a buffet. Surround the centerpiece of your choice with a few photo table tents featuring photos of your cutie during his or her first year.

Dinner can be simple at a first birthday party. Get a few sheet pizzas and pans of pasta for everyone and salads for the adults. Look for Sesame Street theme cookies and crackers (available with the infant and toddler food at the grocery store) and have them around the room for everyone to snack on during the party. Have assorted sodas and bottles of water available for the adults and juice boxes for the kids. Add matching personalized Sesame Street water bottle labels to the table for a fun tie in to the theme!

At cake time, decorate the birthday boy or girl with a colorful Sesame Street 1st birthday bib and a 1st birthday cake hat. A fun Elmo cake (made in an Elmo cake pan) will be a big hit at the party. That bib will be a big help when your one year old discovers the joy of cake for the first time! Or how about an assortment of cupcakes decorated like the different Sesame Street monsters?

Sesame Street Party Activities
One year olds don't need a ton of entertainment at a party. Make sure the party is held somewhere with a variety of toys. If your church or temple has an activity room with toys and playground equipment, see if they have the space available for rent. The kids will have fun crawling, walking and running around testing out all the toys and equipment.

Older kids will also love a room full of playground toys. You may also want to offer a few crafts as well. Here are a few ideas that will keep the kids busy and happy:
  • Color Clay - this set includes 8 jars of Color-Clay (it's like Play-Doh), 8 cookie cutters and 4 wooden rolling pins.
  • Happy Birthday Jumbo Coloring Book - a Sesame Street theme coloring book with crayons.
  • Clay Sets - let the kids create their own monsters out of clay
Sesame Street Party Favors
Start with a personalized party favor to help your guests remember this fabulous 1st birthday party celebration. A personalized favor is sure to be remembered -

A great, and easy favor is a Sesame Street Alphabet Party Favor Box which includes a Sesame Street sticker sheet, a Sesame Street blowout, Elmo notepad, jumbo crayons and other fun favors. Or start with a crayon theme empty favor box and fill it with fun Sesame Street theme favors, such as:
