Sesame Street 2nd Birthday Party!!

Well I have a spare moment so I can finally get this all up! Lots of pictures, I must warn!! But I love how his party turned out, but mostly I love how much fun he had, it was all for him and his love of Sesame Street!!
Now some ideas are from pinterest, and some is my mind, but I’m sure that someone else had the same ideas too, so I will just list the sources I used at the bottom.

Here’s the invitations- I bought them off Etsy, ADORABLE!! I only paid $5 for the file, and I had a coupon for Meijer photo lab- 25 free single image prints, SCORE!! I didn’t need that many but they were free!

LOVE THEM!

LOVE THEM!

The envelopes, just for fun!

I made the envelopes from scrapbook paper I already had, I finagled (I don’t know if thats even a real word!) a template from one I had on hand but wan’t quite the right size.
I used my cricut to cut out characters, which was much more intense then I had in mind. Lots of little pieces, and I had digitally downloaded the cartridges(much cheaper!!) so I didn’t have the book in hand to make sure all the parts were right. But they turned out just fine!IMG_3894

Trust me I saved them for his scrapbook! LOTS of work!

I reused his wreath that I had made last year for his birthday, just changed the colors, and snazzed it up a bit.
Last Year!

Oh and I also made Homemade Ice Cream (it’s a beloved tradition with my family). I made it Cookie Monster Ice Cream, I made it blue with mini chips ahoy cookies and mini chocolate chips. It was delicious, but I’m so embarressed to say there are no pictures of it! But It was super fun!

I made a few things for the kids to play with outside, the bubbles were the biggest hit. And so simple!

I also made a ring toss, I used empty lemonade bottles, paper, and paint pens. Jakob was a big help putting the paper in the bottles, I did a few more characters than I had seen. We love Murray at our house, who am I kidding we love them all!
