First stop, invitations from Lani's Party Designs.
Welcome to Madalynne's Street!
Daddy made the most amazing Madalynne Street sign. It even lights up. We used this great tutorial from My Simple Obsession. He also cut the letter 'M' and the number '2' for the front door, after all the party is brought to you by the letter 'M' and the number '2'. Look her adorable Elmo dress, created by Nana!
I made Sesame street hats for each of the kids. Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch, a wonderful Pinterest idea. They all loved them. I used my cricut and the Sesame Street Font Cartridge to cut the faces out of fun foam. There is a great tutorial on how to cut craft foam with your Cricut from Cathie Rigby. Maddie loved Elmo so much that she took a bite out of him. You can see her little teeth marks on the lower left.
Big Bird's Seed Search with lots of fabulous little toys, again Daddy cut out Big Bird and Mommy painted.
Cookie Monster Bean Bag Toss, also created by Daddy; and the most adorable little bean bags made by Nana!
Oscar's Tattoo Parlor, created with Mommy's cricut cartridge Sesame Street Seasons.
Play Table - including a puzzle station and a Sesame neighborhood complete with Abby Cabby's Flying Fairy School
Decorations included lots of Sesame Street bean bag characters, balloons, more 'M' and '2's, lots of pinwheels created from old used Sesame Street books, and a "Maddie" banner created using my Cricut. There were even towels and soap dispensers in the bathrooms and kitchen with the Sesame theme.
There were even Big Bird and Elmo hand towels and soaps in the bathroom and kitchen to follow the Sesame Street theme.
We also set up a Sesame Street photo backdrop. I wanted to set up our professional lights to help with the glare, but Juan thought that was over the top.
More fun food: Snuffles Truffles
Cookie Monster's Monster Cookies
Oscar's Trash Cans with Pet Worm Slimy
And Even the Count's Chocolate Milk
Maddie was a little overwhelmed when it came time for the Birthday girl's song; and although she did blow out her candle, she did not want her cake or cupcake. All she wanted was fruit!
What a better way to thank our guests for coming then to provide an amazing favor for the kiddos to take home? The pails were found on clearance at Michaels and I used the Cricut again to create the faces. There was a Sesame Street coloring book with Elmo crayons, a Sesame Street book, stickers, an Elmo matching game, and fruit snacks.
I think my little girl had the most Amazing 2nd Birthday Ever! I love you Maddie!
