Hello everyone! I am very excited to be doing another creative post with supplies from Oriental Trading Co. today! This one will be a little different from the others I have done, because this one is all about my youngest son's third birthday party. He insisted on having an Elmo party and OT made it sooo easy for me to honor his wish.
The main eye catcher on the table was this amazing centerpiece! There were different characters on the sides. It is actually for a 1st birthday, but by simply cutting out white circles and colorful number "3"s, I was able to cover up the 1 that was on each of the balloons originally. It also had a smaller Elmo and Abby to place on either side of the table.
The place settings were colorful and fun, perfect for a 3 year-old! I used red paper plates for the meal and Elmo dessert plates. I chose a solid yellow napkin so there wouldn't be a ton of prints going everywhere. There was an Elmo cup with a red polka-dot paper straw in it and a party hat at each place as well.
Here is a close up of the cups and straws. The cups have Elmo on one side and Cookie Monster on the other.
These fun Sesame Street confetti pieces were scattered on the table. They came with the centerpiece!
I used bright paper bags for the party favors.
Here is a look that was inside the bags! Birthday bubbles, neon squirt guns and fish print sunglasses! Let me tell you, they were a HIT!
Here is the birthday cake I made him. Nothing spectacular, but he loved it, so that is what counts!
Last, but not least, this is the card I made! The papers were from EK Success' Sesame Street paper stack. I used a stamp from Paper Sweeties, homemade enamel dots and foam tape from Oriental Trading behind the layered panels.
I thought I would make it easy on you and give you a list of all the Oriental Trading products I used, so you can see all the products at a glance:
Sesame Street 1st birthday tablecloth (there was no 1 on it, so it can be for any age!)
Foam tape (on the card)
So the next time you are planning a party, stop by Oriental Trading to find everything you will need!
