Sesame Street Second Birthday Party

We celebrated Carter's birthday this weekend with a Sesame Street themed party. It was a toss up between Thomas the Train and Sesame Street, so we took Carter to Party City and let him decide. Cookie Monster won!

I made the invites myself after Carter decided to ham it up for our little photo shoot. For the envelope seals, I just uploaded a picture of Cookie Monster to Vista Print. Super simple!

Then I decided to do a little more DIY to make this snack bar that doubled as our party favors. The clear containers are from Party City and the garland was a Target find.

I made a quick sign to throw in a simple frame.

Then I made round sticker labels and printed them at home using these labels from Amazon.

They were a perfect fit on these cupcake boxes from Party City.

l bought the other snacks in bulk, but made the "fairy dust popcorn" for Abby Cadabby. It's super simple-- plain popcorn tossed in melted white chocolate and sprinkles. After you cook the popcorn, just toss it in a galloon ziploc bag and shake it up with the toppings. Carter enjoyed helping with this part.

l love how the printables for the candy bar coordinated.

We had food catered, but I made rubber ducky punch for Ernie. Blue Raspberry Lemonade is the perfect color for this and I grabbed these little ducks off Amazon.

l kept the other party decor in the kitchen pretty simple. I blew up some balloons and then hung these cute little Sesame Street party swirls around (from Amazon, of course).

The matching Sesame Street banner was a great size for the cabinets. It comes with numbers so you can personalize it for the correct birthday.

Carter opened his presents in our front room, so that's where I had the candy bar set up.

Of course I had to grab these adorable little character puffs for Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and Elmo. I just tied on extra little party swirls below them.

Then I've saved my personal favorite for last... our Sesame Street photo booth! Carter loved it! He tried to feed the characters some of the snacks from his candy bar. Always thinking of others and sharing! =)

I think I have all of my sources linked, it was definitely an Amazon Prime celebration! One of his favorite new toys was Abby Cadabby to complete his character collection. We got her on Amazon too, ha!

If you want to see some of his other current favorites for toys, books, or games you can head over to Carter's Amazon page, which I try to keep updated with currents on top. We get a small percentage back if you decide to purchase any of these, but they are 100% our actual favorites that have been used and loved.
And now we're off racing toward THREE!
