Elmo Dorothy Party

 Today, I'm pleased to share some party photos from one of my recent customers.  Noah loves Elmo's World on the PBS Show, Sesame Street.  So what better than a party that features Elmo and his favorite goldfish, Dorothy!  This lucky guy had one fun party with a truck shaped bounce house, cupcake tower, and treats galore!  

The printable party package utilized a teal and red color scheme, and my customer featured these two colors throughout the party with teal plates and red cups and boxes on the treat table.  I especially loved the red frame she used around the 8x10" welcome sign.  

My Sesame Street party printables include polka dots and stripes, and I just love the table skirt that my customer found to complement the printable party supplies.  The 2" favor tags also made great toppers on the red iced cupcakes that were frosted to mimic Elmo's fur.  Noah even received a delicious toddler-sized cupcake just for his very own!

My customers are super creative and always find a way to re-purpose an item for a different use.  Here, the water bottle wrappers included in the party package have been used to wrap around red napkins and teal forks and knives.  Below, the wrappers have been re-purposed around a stack of brightly colored bubble bottles.

The Elmo and Dorothy party theme offers lots of options for party planners to creatively use the Sesame Street theme even through their choice of treats.  Here, an Elmo treat bag topper is wrapped around a simple bag of goldfish crackers.  Elmo loves his Goldfish, and Noah's guests will, too, with this darling and simple idea.  All it took was a box of goldfish, a ziploc bag, and some cardstock to bring this simple idea to life.

My customer went the extra mile outdoors by adding a Happy Birthday banner, personalized with Noah's name, to flank the back fence in Noah's backyard.  The table included a darling centerpiece filled with my customer's favorite photo taken during each month of Noah's first year.

I am so pleased that my customer shared these photos with me, and I hope that they bring a bright idea to your next party!  The Elmo and Dorothy printable party supplies used for Noah's 1st Birthday can be purchased via my etsy shop here.  The coordinating Happy Birthday banner can be purchased separately here.

Valentine's Day Freebie

I always loved Valentine's Day as a child.  Signing my name on those little cards and passing them around to all of my friends.  So, in honor of the holiday, I have designed a set of printable Valentine's cards.  Four jungle-themed cards in both boy and girl themed colors.  To download the file (in .pdf format), click on the photo below or here.
