I made the invitations using the Sesame Street Font cartridge for Cricut.
I made the banner using the Celebrations and the Sesame Street Font cartridges. Wall border, Cookie Monster cut outs and goodie bags were made using the Sesame Street Font cartridge.
I made these CM party hats! I bought the hats at Party City, pom poms online, fun fringe at party partners shop. I made the eyes and mouth using my SS Font cartridge.
Most kids wore the hats for a minute! I was able to get 2 pictures of my son wearing it. I remember wearing party hats when I was little all the time...how times have changed! Last time I invest time into making party hats.
I made Pin the Cookie on Cookie Monster, this was a great hit! Kids loved it!
My Cookie Monster bouquet. I love it!
Goodie Bags, these came out great! I tied them together with a blue "thank you" ribbon I found at Michael's.
The back of the goodie bags. I put this on the bags that way I knew which child the bag belonged to because of the personalized book marks and it also went with the Sesame Street theme.
Some of the goodies inside the bags...
Personalized bubbles! I removed the original label, printed labels I made on my computer and glued them on!
Stickers I got on ebay.
These are the cutest bookmarks! They were lots of fun to make too. I cut out the shadow of CM's face on foam...but I did not like the way it turned out so I ended up cutting out the next layer in blue card stock. It worked out because it gave his face some dimension. Added googly eyes and a large craft stick. I used my label maker to make a personalized label for each child.
I had my husband dress up as Cookie Monster. I had him introduce the number (2) and letter of the day (J). He said it was pretty hot in that costume, thanks for the sacrifice! Jake eventually loved it! What??? I had to stick to the theme!!! hehehe
And of course here is the cake! Again, my friend Christine Morey made it for us...she is so wonderful and so talented! Can't wait till she makes my daughter's 1st year birthday cake!
Everything turned out beautiful and everyone loved the decorations. A lot of work but worth it!
