Sesame Street Birthday Party




 
P is for “party” with these Sesame Street birthday party ideas! Join Elmo and all your friends from Sesame Street for a day of party games, cake, fun party favors and lots of Sesame Street birthday party supplies. This party theme will show you step by step "how to get to Sesame Street"!

Sesame Street Party Invitations
Start with a fun custom sesame street birthday party invitation for your little one's Sesame Street theme birthday party. We designed decorations and favors to match, so you can have a complete theme the whole way through the party.
 
Your invitation can play off the classic Sesame Street theme - "This birthday is brought to you by the Number 3 and the Letter C." (Use the first initial of your child's name and their age!)

If you are looking for a "WOW" invitation, have our artist draw a custom caricature invitation. How fun to have your child drawn standing next to Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster or Oscar the Grouch (my favorite!) It is a truly custom invitation, and your guests will be amazed.

Another cute (and simple) choice is a fill in the blank Sesame Street party invitations with matching thank you notes.  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 with a Sesame Street personalized banner. Great for outside the house or in the entrance, we also like to hang banners over the buffet too. 
 

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 kids will LOVE these and they are great for photos.
 
Have Sesame Street playing on your TV in the background, or even the fun and familiar sounds and songs 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!

There is nothing that screams birthday party as much as crepe paper streamers hung around a party room. 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.

Balloons are the perfect decoration for a birthday party; they fill the room up with color and are inexpensive! Use an Elmo Mylar balloon with an assortment of blue, yellow and red 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 Sunny Day party supplies 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 tablecover is the perfect choice to go with all these great paper goods.
 
Make wrapped silverware bundles by rolling plastic silverware up in the napkin, and tying it closed with ribbon, or a party favor, like these fun primary colored play whistles!
 
There is an adorable Sesame birthday centerpiece that features all of the favorite characters from Sesame Street. Or better yet, place an Elmo cake stand on the middle of the table... it's  a centerpiece and dessert display!
 
Balloons always make a fun centerpiece. Mix together more bouquets of Elmo Mylar balloon with a few latex balloons and tie them together. They can be weighed down with simple balloons weights. A fun idea is to use a plush Snuffleupagus as a centerpiece with a balloon tied to his trunk... and he doubles as a gift for your little one! 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.

Dinner can be simple at a 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!

After all that party food, a fun Elmo cake (made in an Elmo cake pan) will be a big hit at the party.  Or how about an assortment of cupcakes or cookies decorated like the different Sesame Street monsters?

Sesame Street Party Activities
 If you can have the party where the entertainment is built in then go for it! If your church or temple has an activity room with toys and playground equipment, see if they have the space available for rent.  A bounce house is another great option. The kids will have fun crawling, walking and running around testing out all the toys and equipment.
 
You can have a few structured activities for the kids to keep them busy: 
 
Face Painting - This is a great activity that kids love. You can paint Cookie Monster, Elmo or Big Bird on their cheek or hand. Have a teenager or another adult paint so you can be available to run the rest of the party.

Cookie Decorating - Always fun and tasty... dessert and activity in one. Before the party, bake sugar cookies and let them cool. 2-3 cookies per child is a good rule of thumb (one to eat, some to take home... and now you have a favor too!) Provide white icing and sprinkles, and a take home container (this custom Sesame Street party favor bag is perfect). You can add a little note "Friends are the sprinkles on the cookie of life... thanks for celebrating Billy's birthday with him!"

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:
Have a great time on Sesame Street with your little ones and Happy Birthday from Party411!
